Characters Who Are… Chased!

Since October is often thought of for Halloween and scary movies, our reading challenge for the month will take on as much of a creepy vibe as you like. That can be little (or none) or much. It’s truly up to you. The theme is…

The character could be in a car chase…

… or chased by a dog…

… or chased by a stalker…

… or maybe they’re chased in a game of tag…

… or perhaps they’re chased by guilt over their past… (no one said it had to be by a person!)

The possibilities are endless!

Have fun with this one, y’all. I am excited to see how creative you get. Be sure to share with us how the character was chased when you post your books.

I’ll be reading some suspense books, which are sure to have some good chase scenes in them at some point. Also, a couple of WWI and WWII books look like, from the back-cover copy, they could have a bit of a chase to them.

What books will you be reading?

  1. Thanks, Mom! Both surprised me, actually. I was pleasantly surprised to find that picture on a free picture site. I thought it was adorable and exactly the tone I wanted to set, since I don't do very many scary books or movies.
