Hello and happy not winter!
Last autumn I took part in the Fall Bookish Bingo and had so much fun that I decided to do it again. These seasonal bingos are hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews if you want to participate.
I did really well over the past three months and I only failed on Three challenges!
1- FRIENDS FAV
Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K Rowling, illustrated by Jim Kay. My friend is obsessed my this whole serious, hence why we’re besties.
2- 2018 RELEASE I MISSED
People Like Us by Dana Mele, does it still count if I read this right at the end of 2018? I’m just gonna say yeah.
3- PINK COVER
Marriage of Unconvenience by Chelsea M. Cameron has a very pink cover and it was super sweet.
4- FAVE AUTHOR
9 From The 9 worlds by Rick Riordan, Gods how I wish this was longer.
Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennet, this took my totally by surprise but it was adorable and Zorie and Lennon are really cute.
6- DEC/JAN/FEB RELEASE
Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare, of course this came out in Decemeber, I had to wait till January to read it but wowch was it a good finale.
7-MALE MAIN CHARACTER
Fence Vol 1, this square isn’t coloured in because I forgot I read this but this follows fencing, obviously and the main character is of the male species so …. it fits.
8- SET IN EUROPE
Shade by Mere Joyce-, this is about a summer camp for kids who see ghosts. I was lucky enough to get it as an ARC and loved it! It fits this challenge as the camp is set in France.
The Kings Men by Nora Sakovic, the final book in the All For The Game trilogy which I reread recently. This book is super gay and I couldn’t not use it for this challenge.
Watch Us Rise by Renee Watson & Ellen Hagan was also an ARC is was lucky enough to receive and holy shit was this book good.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, I had to reread this so I can finally continue on and read Crooked Kingdom as soon as I’m back from my trip to England.
12- ANIMAL ON THE COVER
Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman, which of course features various birds on the cover.
13- WHITE COVER
The Bronze Key by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare, the UK editions, which I own, all have white covers which I hate, I much prefer the UK editions but at least it fits for this.
14- DISABLED MAIN CHARACTER
The Copper Gauntlet by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare, the main character Cal walks with a pretty severe limp after an injury as a child which isn’t ever brushed away or forgotten about.
15- BOOK WAS A GIFT
Talon by Julie Kagawa, I’m 99% sure this was a gift because I do not remember buying it whatsoever, I’m pretty sure I got it a while ago for my birthday.
16- SPIN OFF
Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare, as everybody know the whole Dark Artifices series is a spin off of the Mortal Instruments series.
17- SECOND CHANCE
The Ghost Files Vol 5 by Apryl Baker, I binged this whole series a while ago but by book five I was warn out and didn’t finish it so I randomly picked it up and completed it at last.
18- RELIGIOUS MINIORITY MC
To Look a Nazi in the Eye, this again, is an ARC I was lucky enough to get and this follows a Jewish girl who goes to Germany to witness one of the last trials of a Nazi. Although not something I usually tend to pick up it was very interesting.
19- START A SERIES
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, again, I’m probably cheating cause this was a reread.
20- AUTHOR OF COLOUR
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, it’s embarrassing how long it took me to get to this but it was amazing and I loved it, the movie too.
21- 2019 DEBUT
You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn, this actually doesn’t come out till April but I had such a good time reading this story out two young singers touring America and falling in love.
Winter was great and I had a great time reading as much as I did but I’m totally ready for some more sunshine and warmth!!!
