Halloween Bingo Update || BINGOs, and BLACKOUTs, and a Wrap Up! Oh My!

Two days from the end of Halloween Bingo 2016 and I have made it!  Twelve BINGOs total and a BLACKOUT, with The Halloween Tree as my final book read!

I want to give another shout-out to Moonlight Murder and Obsidian Black Death for putting all of this together.  Thank you two so much!  I've had so, SO much fun, and I look forward to the next Booklikes bookish activity, and hope that I can participate even more.  I'm not an entirely social person, but this game has brought me out of my lurking status, as well as expanded my reading appetite a little bit.

I've read many great books these past two months, and with the exception of maybe one or two books, I think I've had a pretty good run of reading for Halloween Bingo.

I also wanted to thank all the other BL-ers who helped with book suggestions, and for sharing all your thoughts and discussing with me any and all books we have all read during this time.

Truly, this has been lots of fun!

I will have the reviews for The Haunting of Maddy Clare, Beg for Mercy, and The Halloween Tree posted, hopefully within the next two days.
