I'm so excited about this! Never participated in book bingo before, but this seems like really fun way to finally get to some forgotten books on my TBR :)
Big thank you to Moonlight Madness for the card and all the work put into organizing this bingo.
Here are my book choices:
Terrifying women: The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware
Ruth Ware is highly acclaimed psychological crime thriller author, but for some reason I never read any of her books. Will see, maybe she will become my go-to author after this :)
Southern Gothic: Fantasy Lover (Hunter Legends Series #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Sherrilyn Kenyon books never disappoints me before, hopefully this paranormal romance set in New Orleans won't be an exception.
Spellbound: Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman
It's sitting on my TBR shelf already about 5 years, finally will have a chance to push myself to read it.
Deadlands: My Life as a White Trash Zombie (White Trash Zombie #1) by Diana Rowland
Heard a lot of mixed reviews about this book. Just because of great cover I have to read it and hope for the best.
Country house mystery: Decanting a Murder (A Sommelier Mystery #1) by Nadine Nettmann
Know nothing about this book, but somehow a year ago it ended up on my TBR.
Darkest London: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Another book sitting on my TBR shelf for far too long. Read so many good things about it, but some newer shinier books were always distracting me from picking it up.
Creepy Carnivals: Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Oh my, another old-timer on my TBR. I really need to get my act together and start tackling those books.
Modern Noir: Coffin Road by Peter May
I'm not much of a Noir genre reader. Was hard to choose something not knowing any of the authors. But after some search on Goodreads ended up with this one.
Relics and Curiosities: Blood Symbols by Izak Botha
Few days ago I won it in a giveaway, so this bingo will be perfect opportunity to read it. Blurb sounds like something out of the Dan Brown repertoire.
Terror in a small town: We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
Had nothing on my TBR to fit this category, so going with Moonlight Madness suggestion.
Murder Most Foul: The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand
Some lighter mystery to balance it out.
New release: The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
Really excited about this one, just bought a book few weeks ago, so perfect timing for bingo!
Cryptozoologist: Iron and Magic (The Iron Covenant #1) by Ilona Andrews
Well about damn time, a book I can get behind. Kate Daniels are one of my favorite kick ass heroines in Urban Fantasy. Hugh was a bad guy in Kate Daniels series, so see him becoming main character in this new spin series was kinda of surprise. Can't wait to see how this bad boy transformation will work out!
Modern Masters of Horror: The Outsider (Finders Keepers #4) by Stephen King
Shame to admit, but I never read any of Stephen King's books. This will be big push out of my comfort zone, hopefully I will manage to finish it.
Amateur sleuth: Front Page Fatality (A Nichelle Clarke Crime Thriller #1) by LynDee Walker
Wanted some light fluffy read to not make my first bingo experience too tough, so choose this one :)
Genre: Suspense: The Thinnest Air by Minka Kent
Another resent purchase. Seems I unintentionally was preparing for Halloween bingo not even knowing about it!
Shifters: The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf (Naked Werewolf #2) by Molly Harper
I liked first book in the series with it's humorous approach to paranormal romance. Hopefully this one won't disappoint me either.
Romantic suspense: Shelter in Place by Nora Roberts
The book topic - mass shooting - is very relevant to nowadays. Can't wait to see how romance part will be entwined into the story.
A Grimm Tale: The Bear and the Nightingale (Winternight Trilogy #1) by Katherine Arden
Fairy Tale set in Russian wilderness? Truly something new for me.
Fear the Drowning Deep: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo
Dark retelling of Little Mermaid with spins that pull from other folklore. Mmmm, sounds intriguing.
Doomsday: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Another long timer on my TBR.
Baker Street Irregulars: Truly Devious (Truly Devious #1) by Maureen Johnson
I'm not much into YA mysteries so will rely on Moonlight Madness recommendation.
Gothic: Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
A Gothic retelling of Jane Eyre, one of my all time favorite books.
13: The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
"Series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before." Sounds promising :)
Wild Cards: Anthony Horowitz - The Word Is Murder (Hawthorne #1) and Magpie Murders
