After making progress on my bingo reads last week, I fell into another rabbit hole this week. I’ve been in the process of consolidating all my book data and reviews, and moving them into bookhype.com, a new site in beta at the moment that looks promising enough to make the effort. In doing so, I saw a couple of titles I had the sudden urge to re-read: Alpha & Omega by Patricia Briggs, and Angelfall, by Susan Ee. Neither are in my Bingo plans, and neither fit any of my remaining squares. Oops.
I did finish Ink & Sigil for my transfigured American Horror Story square (Spellbound), but I’m not sure if I can mark it yet, or if I have to wait for Spellbound to be called first.
Calls made so far that are on my card – as you can see, I really have no excuse to be so far behind:
*Note: I’ve removed Psych in favour of Romantic Suspense, as it’s the square I flipped, and American Horror Story has been transfigured into Spellbound
How it works:
If I read a square that hasn’t been called yet, a ghost of stickers-yet-to-come will appear; once the square has been called, the sticker will become fully corporeal. (Alas, this only works in regular browsers, but I’m in too deep to try to do something different now.) As the squares get ticked off, a fully formed image will appear. Previously, I posted the finished image, but this year I’m going to leave it a mystery.
Below is the table that will summarise the books I’ve read for each square, and note if I took advantage of one of the Spell Pack cards, and which one. Book Titles link to my review of the book here.
