‘Beat the Back List’ Bingo

Good Evening Batsy’s

1 month into 2020 and I am behind on my reading target of 150 Books. So I need to challenge myself big time to get it completed. I never participated or created a Bookish Bingo before but I couldn’t help but give it a go.


  • Print off a copy of the bingo card.
  • Assign a book from your back list to each square
  • Just like traditional Bingo you have to make your way across the board. Either Diagonally, Horizontal, or the complete 25 books.
  • You’ll have three months to read them… April May & June

Batina Darken: The Adventures of a Spooky Girl

Welcome spooky enthusiasts..

My name is Batina Darken, and welcome to my Blog. I am a Creepy Cuter. I love all things, horror, paranormal, Sci-Fi and Gothic. I read tarot, read paranormal romance, LOVE horror movies, adult colouring books, creepy art, Halloween, Knitting and history.

There are plenty of goth blogs out there which are heavily based on the fashion and lifestyle, and I can think of so many… but this isn’t a Goth Blog.. This is a lifestyle blog for Creepy girls.. girls who like horror, but like it to be cute.

Let me explain that a bit further. Take the artwork for this blog. There are cute-looking pastel coloured dolls, yet there is also eyeballs, bats, and mouths sewn with string. Most creepy cute does have a gorier feel to it, like dripping blood, coffins, zombie hands, teeth etc.. so its a less creepy version. I chose this artwork, because of the books, cute bats, and pumpkins.
