Halloween Bingo Update -- First and Second Bingo!

I've been making a routine of posting a Bingo update every Sunday at Booklikes, but found myself deliberating whether to put it off or do a second update over there this week since I knew I'd be finishing The Ghost Bride--I just didn't know when I'd finish reading it for that first BINGO.  But with Booklikes being down yesterday, I guess it gave me a chance to finish reading my book and prepare my update for today instead!

So I finally got my first BINGO after a nice scenic tour around my card, as everyone can see!  Two BINGOs in fact, with the first column up-down and the second row going across.

The Ghost Bride took me a lot longer to finish reading than I had anticipated, throwing my Bingo card plans completely off schedule...

I will have reviews for The Ghost Bride and Practical Magic up within the week, hopefully.
