Slight change of plans re the physical sheep and Hastings stickers…

Many thanks to Moonlight Madness, Obsidian Black Plague, and Murder by Death for my lovely card for this year’s Halloween Bingo.

I am also listing the books I plan to read / have read for each square – with () being planned reads, Italics being books in progress, and bold being books I have read:
