Halloween Bingo 2020: October 10th update

I have bingos threatening to break out all over the place, but so far I remain in suspense.  I’ve finished books for Black Cat, Cozy Mystery, Free Square, Country House, and Darkest London this week and today I’m going to start on my Gothic square with Mary Roberts Rinehart’s The Red Lamp.  

Calls made so far that are on my card:

*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.
