More about Halloween Bingo books...

First of all, thanks to a fortuitously timed $5 off a best selling book code from Google Play, I was able to get The Thin Man for $0.99. :D

 

Also, I've decided to replace my initial Magical Realism book with this one:

 

The Watchmaker's Daughter - C.J. Archer  The google books page for it lists Magical Realism as one of its genres. AND, I'd downloaded it for free only a few days before I got my bingo card.

 

I have some Agatha Christie books I can use on a few squares on tap, too.

 

I got the following audiobook as part of the 2-for-1 sale, and I'm thinking of using it for the Ghosts square:

 

Night of the Living Deed - E.J. Copperman,Amanda Ronconi,Audible Studios 

 

Could also work on Cozy Mystery.

 

I stll need to do some digging around on my shelves and such to see what else I can find.

At Audible: Free for Members only - Private by James Patterson

I've never read James Patterson, and I'm not sure if I'll like this, but a free book is a free book.

Hello...and about my book list...

First, I wanted to say hello to the new friends who are now following me! Look forward to reading your posts.

 

About the Halloween Book Bingo reading list...I'm not sure I"m going to plan a book for every single spot like I did last year. I have some vague ideas on books I can use for some of the squares, and I may make a booklist if I have time.

 

I do know I'm going to use Etched in Bone for the Werewolves square (while the wolves in those books are not what I'd call traditional werewolves, they're still wolf-shifters, so I think that still counts?)

 

I'll be reading The Thin Man for the Classic Noir square.

 

Night Shift could be used on several squares, but I have it ear marked for either the Vampires or the Witches square for now. Though, I believe I could also use it for Supernatural or possibly even Cozy Mystery.

 

I'm tentatively planning on Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell for Magical Realism, but will admit to being intimidated by the book's length and the time constraints of the game.

 

I need to sort through my TBR list, my audiobook collection, and my kindle to see what else I may have that I can use.

 

 

Day Shift

Day Shift: A Novel of Midnight, Texas - Charlaine Harris

Enjoyed this one much more than the first. With all of the world building out of the way, this one was able to move a bit (just a bit) more swiftly than the first in the series.

 

I'm going to have to order the 3rd soon, because I can use it on any one of about five or six squares on my bingo card!

AHHHHH I'm getting so excited!

Thanks to MR for the card, and the both MR and OB for hosting the game again this year!

 

My Kindle First choice for August

Is nothing. None of the six books offered this month look even remotely appealing to me. Meh.
