Halloween Update 7 October 2018

Well this is interesting. I've accepted that my Diverse Voices book probably won't get finished before October is over, however, if Genre: Horror gets called, I'll finally have a Bingo! Also if Romantic Suspense gets called, I can read myself a Bingo there and one of the two books I need is fairly short. The Classic Horror book is a little on the long side, but I could always choose a different one.
