Halloween Bingo 2019 PreParty — Question for 08/09 (Day 9): Book Suggestions for the New Squares? Part 1: "Paint It Black"

Today’s prompt is for favorite horror reads; that not being much of my thing (outside, perhaps, the gothic classics and anything more edifying or funny rather than scary), I think I’m going to leave that prompt to Char, Bark’s Books (aka Bark at the Ghouls), and the site’s other horror fans.  Instead, I’m going to catch up on the prompt from the day before yesterday — I’m really, really excited about the new squares.

This is going to be another multiple-post reply … because come on, these covers are just too beautiful not to give them a space of their own!

16 Tasks of the Festive Season: Square 16 – Kwanzaa

Tasks for Kwanzaa: Create a stack of books in the Kwanzaa color scheme using red, black and green and post your creation and post a photo (or post a photo of a shelfie where black, red and green predominate).

BONUS task: Create something with your stack of books: a christmas tree or other easily identifiable object.


It so happened I had a bunch of planned Halloween Bingo reads still sitting around that fit the bill … so here we go:


… and rearranged as a star (and I swear the covers of those books by Denise Mina, Louise Penny, Val McDermid and Stephen Booth are actually greenish-turquoise, not blue):

— and finally, rearranged again as a reader sitting on a chair (OK, well, just use your imagination … :D):
