This year, one of the challenges I’m participating in, is #armedwithabingo hosted by Kristi and Ariel. All the details for the bingo are here, and you can check out my first post about the challenge here.
For the first quarter, I read these books:
Poetry collection – Ink Knows No Borders
Book in the middle of a series – Blizzard of New Moon (Magic Treehouse Series) by Mary Pope Osbourne
Book published in the last decade – A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahareh Mafi
A YA novel – Heart of the Moors by Holly Black
A memoir – Wildflower by Drew Barrymore
Friendship/family – Drama by Reina Telgemeier
Fantasy – Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
Bestseller – The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell
Meant to read last year – Final Girls by Riley Sager
Nonfiction – You Can Only Yell at Me for One Thing at a Time by Patricia Marx
Second quarter I added these books to my bingo board:
Book published in 2020 – Straight on Till Morning by Liz Braswell. This is my favorite read of the year so far, and you can check out my review here.
Book with multiple POV’s – Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reed
Book with a number in the title – The Seven Dials Mystery by Agatha Christie. This one was also enjoyable and though not one of Christie’s most popular series, I find I’m really enjoying the Superintendent Battle series.
Book a friend recommends – Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto. I read this book as part of the Book Gizmo Book Club on Instagram.
A dystopian novel – The Jewel by Amy Ewing.
Not third person POV (first person POV) – Something She’s Not Telling Us by Darcey Bell
Book by an indie author – A Touch of Gold by Annie Sullivan
Book with a Beautiful Cover – Darling Rose Gold by Stephanie Wrobel. As soon as I saw the cover for this book, I wanted to read it, even without reading the premise.
And for the third quarter, I added these books:
Book with a color in the title: The Silver Cobweb (Nancy Drew mystery story #71) by Carolyn Keene. I’m a huge Nancy Drew fan and I read for a prompt another reading challenge – it was published the year I was born. 🙂
Book I chose: The Companion by Katie Alendar. I read a sample of this book and was immediately hooked. This is one of my top reads of the year, and you can read my review here.
A book I was gifted: Roaring by Lindsey Duga. Another great read for the year, you can read my review here.
I have three squares left, and I have already picked my reads for those prompts!
