Halloween Bingo Update 22 September

White Lies - Jeremy Bates Hark! The Herald Angels Scream - Christopher Golden Loch Ness Revenge - Hunter Shea The Labyrinth of the Spirits - Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Well, I have a special talent. So far I've managed to dodge my finished reads between called squares and haven't got a single completed square!

 

However, I do have 4 books in progress for called squares. New release, Modern masters of Horror, Cryptozoologist, and Diverse Voices. Two of these should be finished soon. The last one is a brick, over 800 pages, but I got it from Netgalley so I won't change it.

 

I didn't want to win anything this year anyway, as I won a prize the first time and am happy to let others have a turn. I'm just bemused. Maybe weird kitty doesn't want his face scratched!
