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 #3

Finally, a square has been called that's on my card.  I went through quite a dry spell there with only 1 of mine called in the last 8; to be expected with the new rules, but nevertheless is was nice to see one of mine show up today.


I've just finished my book for the Amateur Sleuth square - though it's the 13th book in the series, so I reserve the right to change it up if my planned book for the 13 square doesn't arrive in time.  I also have the Free Space read done and dusted.  I'll be starting on my Country House Mystery next: Envious Casca.


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.
