My Halloween Bingo Card!


So this is what I did yesterday instead of adulting. I want to use books already in my physical or digital TBR, and I don't want to do any re-reads. The only category I'm stuck on is Creepy Carnivals, but I've got the rest of the month to dig through my uncatalogued books. If all else fails, I can use a Wild Card for that square.


Here's my tentative plan, subject to change depending on books available and my current mood when squares are called. (?)'s denote books I'm not 100% sure fit the criteria.
