October, October | Katya Balen

A classic in the making for anyone who ever longed to be WILD. October and her dad live in the woods. They sleep in the house Dad built for them and eat the food they grow in the vegetable patches. They know the trees and the rocks and the lake and stars like best friends. They read the books they buy in town again and again until the pages are soft and yellow until next year's town visit. They live in the woods and they are wild. And that's the way it is. Until the year October turns eleven. That's the year October rescues a baby owl. It's the year Dad falls out of the biggest tree in their woods. The year the woman who calls herself October's mother comes back. The year everything changes. Written in Katya Balen's heart-stoppingly beautiful style, this book is a feast for the senses, filled with the woodsmoke smell of crisp autumn mornings and the sound of wellies squelching in river mud. And, as October fights to find the space to be wild in the whirling chaos of the world beyond the woods, it is also a feast for the soul.

True crime #tvshow tonight for #scarathlon. Vengeance: Killer Millionaires. It‘s crazy; it‘s about a man I knew 20+ years ago from my old job in Austin, who was murdered in 1999 while I was in law school, and I had no idea. #teamslaughter @Clwojick @StayCurious

Sorry #TeamSlaughter! We thought we addressed the #TeamMovie points already, but we must have forgotten to include it in the previous posts.

Scream 1996 or 2022 is worth 20 pts.
Scream Tv show (Netflix) is worth 10pts/episode
All other movies/tv shows are with 5pts!

Roary47 Ooo yay! I can access the show, but haven't found a streaming for the movie. 23h
MartinaLove I never heard about Scream series (episode). I only ever saw the movies. 22h
aperfectmjk Thanks for including the show. Struggling to find the movie. 21h
aperfectmjk Oh man, just found that it's going to be on VH1 on Thursday 10/6 at 7pm. Have it set to record. 20h
Clwojick I‘ve seen it on Prime @Roary47 18h
Roary47 Oh sweet that led me to Paramount+ that I do have yay! 16h
Lizpixie Is that 20pts per Scream movie? Or just 20pts for the 1996 or the 2022 one? 12h
Clwojick @Lizpixie just the two, to make it fair with the opposing team. 5h
Clwojick @Roary47 oh shoot! I thought they had it available on “trial” but I might be wrong. 4h

It‘s October! It‘s #scarathlon2022! It‘s #ominousoctober!

For day 1 #cat I had to post this pic I took yesterday of a cat who lives near me and my bf, known only as The Cat Who Hates Us. This cat hates us so much. We think she‘s beautiful and we say hi every time we go past and she will literally never even look at us directly. We love you Cat Who Hates Us 🥰

I‘m not typically a big fan of fall, Halloween, or cooler weather, but you all are so contagious with your spooky season enthusiasm that I feel like I gotta let my inner witch play a little bit this month 😂👻🎃

Second chance #bookspin is working well for me. I‘m at the end of my list of prioritized TBR books from this year, so I‘ll be filling in empty slots with general categories until the end of the year

Guys guys guys! I had the first class of my masters degree yesterday! I‘ve been saving and waiting and dreaming about this for a long time and it feels SO good to be studying again.

For the #scarathlon2022 points honour system, I‘m trying to think of a way to count my masters readings as they‘ll be a lot of what I read next month. I hope it‘s in line with the rules to count academic papers/readings as short stories for points? @Clwojick

I started a #scarathlon point tracker in Word(I need to fix the title). It‘s manual, no lovely formulas adding anything up. I‘m happy to share if anyone wants a copy. I think it can easily be converted to Excel. Just comment with your email address below if you‘d like a copy.

It‘d be super easy to recreate as well. The most important part for me was having the points available at the top and I can update that as activities are added.

As per my previous post, the points will be as follows:

5pts when you share a photo of a book that matches these prompts. You can backdate these photos if you miss a couple days, but do not post ahead.

15pts if you READ a book that matches one of the prompts. This could be completed at ANY TIME during the month.

Reminder that this point system goes for any photo challenge you take part in October.

julieclair The fun just keeps getting better! 🎃👻🎃 6d
coffees So just to double check, if i read a book that's black, that counts as 15pts? 3d
coffees Also is the posting ahead ok by one day? I'm on a different timezones so am I allowed to post day 2 when it's Oct 2nd w me? @_@ 3d
Clwojick @coffees yes! Once you‘ve finished a book that matches the prompt you get 15 points. But if you‘re just posting a photo of a book/item to match the photo, but it hasn‘t yet been read, it‘s 5 pts. And we‘re all in different time zones, so you could either choose to play along in your own time zone or play along in mine. Whatever makes it easier for you. We‘re not super picky. 3d

Since everyone loved the word search game during last years #WinterGames, so we knew we had to introduce it to our #Scarathlon event too!

As you‘re reading throughout the month, keep track of how many times you come across the above words, and give yourself 10 pts per word found! Woohoo! Let‘s go team! Only 9 days to go! 🦇🖤

Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES 😂😂😂
2w
Andrew65 Love the word search aspect. 2w
Yuki_Onna @Clwojick Two questions:
1. Do the words also count if I find them in German? As I'll hopefully read some quick mysteries in my native tongue, too - does it count if I find the words Geheimnis = secret; Tod = death etc. as well?
3d
Yuki_Onna @Clwojick 2. As for the TV aspect: Do episodes of mystery series or true crime documentary series count as separate? I.e. does each episode of, let's say, Columbo or Medical Detectives watched each give #TeamSlaughter 5 points? Or do 'only' proper movies count? 3d

Clwojick @SomedayAlmost yes! There have been a lot of issues with the tagging on Litsy over the last little bit, so keep an eye on my profile in case you miss anything. 🖤 2w
Clwojick @Allylu Whoops! I knew we missed something! We upped it to 20 pts for either the original or the 2022 Scream movies, or 10 pts per episode if you watch the Scream show on Netflix. @BeckyWithTheGoodBooks ⏫⏫ 2w
BeckyWithTheGoodBooks @Clwojick Thanks for clarifying the Team Movie(s)! I LOVE the Scream franchise, so it will be fun to revisit and get points! 2w
PageShifter When a book counts to be directly related to Halloween? 2w
Clwojick @PageShifter If Halloween is mentions, it counts for the points! 2w
Traci1 What determines whether a show or movie is scary? If a murder is committed, does that count (thinking shows like Psych, which have murders every episode but aren't usually scary)? Or does it need to be more horror? 2w
Clwojick @Traci1 we‘re not super picky. Any thriller/mysteries/horror or anything thing else you think is scary or creepy counts. As well as any tv episode or movie that features Halloween. 2w
Allylu What is the #BucketList ? 1w

This huge stack is my (slightly)over-ambitious #ScarathlonTBR for #TeamSlaughter There‘s a nice mix of crime/thriller/mystery with some witchy books for the #Witchathon & #PromptMaze & the #BigBuddyRead book Horseman for #FearFall I also have a lot of audiobooks lined up for the #LittenListen Bingo board & some ebooks as well. It‘s gonna be a busy month! #Scarathlon 20pts

mdm139 Thanks for sharing! I look forward to reading witchy books with you this month! 2w
