Halloween Bingo - Last Additions

The Last Man - Mary Shelley Incubation: Green Fields book 1 - Adrienne Lecter Dark Ride - P.G. Kassel The Monk - Matthew Gregory Lewis

So, that fills the list except for New Release, which I'll get to closer to the time.

 

Latest additions:

 

Terrifying Women - The Last Man by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

 

Mary Shelley wrote more than Frankenstein! And I already read Frankenstein so had a look on Gutenberg for what else was available. This one fits the bill.

 

Dead Lands - Incubation by Adrienne Lecter

 

I was thinking of the second in a series I enjoyed the first one from, but didn't want to spend the money just now so unless they have a price drop on that one, I've found another free first in series that looks interesting!

 

Free Space - Dark Ride by P.G. Kassel

 

I ad this picked out for creepy carnivals, but didn't get that square so I'm placing it here because I really want to read it.

 

Classic Horror - The Monk by Matthew Lewis

 

I nearly read this one last year for this category but went with Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu instead after a recommendation. So, The Monk comes out again! I'm running out of Classic Horror that I haven't already read!

 

So now my list looks like this:
