Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Halloween Bingo 2019 - Tracking Update #1


I've been a reading machine since September 1st - both because of the start of BL Bingo and the cessation (mostly) of all the weekend work I've been doing.


Creepy Crawlies is the latest call, and it's on my card but I have no idea what I'll read for it - if I have anything in my stacks that qualify or if I'll use a transfiguration spell.  In the meantime, I've finished my Supernatural read and I have Murder Most Foul underway.  I've also started Sapphire Flames by Ilona Andrews because it arrived yesterday. 


For my BookLikes tracking post, I'm going to rely on what I did last year, building an overall image as boxes are called.



Squares are greyed out until they're called.  

Called squares will be full-strength.


Read but not called squares will be greyed out below.

Once a square has been called and read, I'll move that piece from below to cover the square. 


My markers this year are pieces of a full image, seen here:




My tentative plan for what I'm reading.  I think there's going to be a lot of re-reads in the mix, given my current mood.  After I've read for a square, I'll hyperlink to the review.
