Bingo Booklist

I've seen some people making lists and I figured it'd be a good way to start getting organized. That way I don't get distracted by those pesky library books. Blank ones I'm not sure about yet, though I'm sure something will come to mind. 


If you have any suggestions for the blank spaces, that would be ridiculously helpful!





1. Read by candlelight or flashlightA Monster Calls by Patrick Ness - Seems like a good one to read by flashlight. Sort of set the mood. 

2. Magical Realism: The Accident Season by Moira Fowley Doyle - This was recommended by Moonlight Murder (who I would tag if I could figure out how!) and it sounds interesting and like a quick read. 

3. WitchesVassa in the Night by Sarah Porter - This book doesn't come out until September 20th but I'm adding it because I am SO excited for it. Vasilisa the Beautiful is one of my favorite fairy tales, and Baba Yaga's a witch, so it counts. 

4. Genre - Horror: The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty - Technically started this one a while ago but I'm waiting to finish it when the bingo challenge starts. Hopefully that's not cheating. 

5. Black cat

6. Diverse writers can be spooky fun!

7. Ghost stories and haunted houses: The Turn of the Screw by Henry James -  I've heard really good things about this one. And a cocktail recipe I could drink while reading it. Just saying.

8. Young Adult Horror: The Bargaining by Carly Anne West - It's a reread but I've been looking for an excuse to dive into it again, especially since I rushed through the end. 

9. Scary Women (Authors): Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge - Started reading this one yesterday so hopefully that's doesn't count as cheating, like The Exorcist

10. Reads with friends

11. Grave or Graveyard

12. Genre- Mystery: Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten - I think it's a mystery. Sounds like one, anyway. 

13. Free Space!

14. Gothic

15. Creepy Crawlies: The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone - Spiders, man. That's a big nope for me. But I gotta. 

16. Fall into a good book

17. Locked room mystery: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie - One of my favorites and deserving of a reread.

18. It was a dark and stormy night: The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle - I've owned it for a couple years now and still have never read it. 

19. Set in New England

20. Full moon

21. Vampires vs. Werewolves: 30 Days of Night by Steve Niles - Found it at a used bookstore. I saw bits of the movie and always found the concept completely fascinating.

22. Supernatural:  Mr. Monster by Dan Wells - Got it for Christmas and am dying to reread it. 

23. Classic Horror: Dracula by Bram Stoker - I've been wanting to read it since I rewatched Dracula: Dead and Loving It last month. 

24. Pumpkin

25. Set on Halloween
