Halloween Bingo 2018 --My Tentative Reading List

I've always wanted to play, I just didn't know if I would be able to find enough books that I want to read considering I don't really like scary books.  Lately, though, I've been branching out with my reading, and I couldn't be happier with that...so why not give this a try.  Thank you, Moonlight Madness & Obsidian Blue for hosting this challenge.  BTW, I've always thought your graphics for your cards are fabulous.

Planning on Hunting Prince Dracula by Carrie Maniscalco
