The Battle Plan

Sad news: Been using Imgur since Photobucket's become a pain in the ass and Imgur doesn't have mustache stickers. Think it's gonna be aviators this year, but it won't be the same. 




1. A Grimm Tale: Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter. - I say I'll read this one every year and every year I don't. Will this be the year?! 


2. Genre: Horror: Over Your Dead Body by Dan Wells. - It's been on the list a while, now is the time. 


3: Darkest London


4: Classic Horror: Turn of the Screw by Henry James - It looks like a short read which lord knows I need. 


5: New Release: The Cabin at the End of the World by Paul G. Tremblay - I've been intrigued about this one since first hearing about it. 


6: 13


7: Supernatural: The Hunger by Alma Katsu - I haven't finished it yet so might get my ass into gear and get it done for this square. 


8: Terrifying Women: Something by Shirley Jackson. Haven't decided what yet, but I've been wanting to read her stuff for a while.


9: Romantic Suspense


10: Doomsday: Coldbrook by Tim Lebbon. - Another one I've started but need a push like bingo to actually finish. 


11: Ghost Stories: Something by Adam Nevill. He has quite a few books that appear to be ghost stories so he seems like a good pick. 


12: Diverse Voices


13: Free Space:


14: Country House Mystery: An Agatha Christie novel, most likely. 


15: Creepy Carnivals


16: Fear the Drowning Deep


17: Amateur Sleuth:


18: Terror in a Small Town: Little Heaven by Nick Cutter


19: Modern Masters of Horror: Something by Joe Hill. Again, not sure what. We'll see what the library has. 


20: Slasher Stories: Would a true crime novel count? Hmmm....


21: Cryptozoologist


22: Murder Most Foul


23: Cozy Mystery: 


24: Genre: Suspense


25: Spellbound


I ran out of steam. I'll come up with the rest later. Though, as usual, suggestions are welcome. :D
