Halloween Bingo update #9


I never got around to writing a Bingo update after I finished Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel, so I'm a bit behind. That one could count for the Monsters or Supernatural squares, neither of which has been called yet.


And I just finished The Tokyo Zodiac Murders. That one could count for Locked Room Mystery, Murder Most Foul, Diverse Voices (which I've already marked, so that one's out), or possibly Amateur Sleuth. I'm choosing to count it for my Locked Room Mystery square, which I've marked with a Dachshund sticker.


If Monsters gets called before Supernatural, I'll be one square away from a Bingo. Now I just need to make myself finish The Bishop's Pawn. It's not necessarily bad, but it's definitely not meant for newbies to the series or people who know almost nothing about Canadian history, and I unfortunately fall into both of those categories.
