Read Like Hell-A-Thon – Spring Edition 2022

Welcome to the Special Edition of Read Like Hell-A-Thon! We’re so excited to have you join us. This read-a-thon is hosted by myself @books.beans.botany and @the.vegan.hobbit so make sure to give us a follow as well as the official Instagram for the read-a-thon – @readlikehellathon.

What is the April Read Like Hell-A-Thon?

It’s a toned-down version of the October read-a-thon. The same concept, still horror-themed, and still loads of fun!


Levels and prompts can be read in any order you wish. Think of them more as groups instead of stepping stones to the next level. 

The only exception is the BONUS level in which you need to finish the other levels as well to achieve. 

Each character has more prompt choices than needed to give you options. Read all the prompts for extra points (the points don’t matter, except for bragging power).

If you achieve all levels including the bonus level (8 books total), you earn the title of “Persephone.”

Check back and join our Facebook group as we’ll be posting book suggestions for each prompt, social media graphics, and more!
