Something Wicked This Way Comes - October Read-Along/Watch-Along #SomethingWickedFall


In October, during the Something Wicked This Fall Comes event AND the FrightFall Readathon at Seasons of Reading, our read along will be the Ray Bradbury classic (for which this event gets its name), Something Wicked This Way Comes. We will also have a watch-along of the movie at the end of the month.

Discussions will be held on this blog. I will put a new post up each week on Sunday (with final discussion post up on Saturday, Oct. 27 before our watch along of the movie) and we will read along according to the schedule below.

Read-Along Schedule

  • Week One (week of Oct. 1st): Prologue - Ch. 17 (pp 1 - 72)
  • Week Two (week of Oct. 8th): Ch. 18 - 29 (pp 73 - 145)
  • Week Three (week of Oct. 15: Ch 30 - 42 (pp 146 - 218)
  • Week Four (week of Oct. 22): Ch 43 - Afterword (pp 219 - 293/end)


Our watch along of the film version (I saw it many, many years ago...it's a good one) will be on Saturday, October 27 at 9:00 pm CDT/10:00 pm EDT. I will host the watch-along via Twitter (hashtag #SomethingWickedFall) and Seasons of Reading (I'll create an event in the Seasons of Reading group on Facebook). Looks like you can watch it for free on YouTube here. The quality is not the greatest though. It's relatively cheap to buy, or you may be able to get it from your library. I couldn't find it on any streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. I didn't check Hulu. There's a chance it could be added in October because of Halloween. We'll see. 

If you have any questions, leave a comment or contact me from the link in the menu.

I hope you will join us!

It's official! We will have our Hereditary watch-along on Saturday, September 22 at 9:00 pm CT/10:00 pm ET.

I will be hosting via the Seasons of Reading Facebook group (I will create an event so we can easily interact) and Twitter (we will use hashtags #Hereditary #SomethingWickedFall).

This post will be shared in the Facebook group (link above), and on Twitter, so comment on this post, or respond to one of the social media posts if you're in.

Can't wait! I actually saw this at the theater, but looking forward to watching again. It's that good.

Gothic Stories Master Post #SomethingWickedFall


This is the master post for Gothic books or short stories read during Something Wicked This Fall Comes. I will be updating this post with my thoughts on stories I've read during the event.

Please share what you've read/your thoughts on what you've read in the comments. I think this will make for some hearty conversation!

Note: I've included a tab in the blog menu so you can find this page easily. 

UPDATE: I've extended Gothic stories through the end of October since I didn't get to finish reading any of them yet.
