Book Bingo 2018: Win

I often think it is a sign of a great blog feature that gets posted in January and then completely ignored and partially forgotten about until a final post in December. Real winning formula there. I feel bad I neglected it so but by some pure miracle I have managed to achieve a Bingo and actually completed all my bubbles! Without trying I filled all but two and they were easy to complete.

I read a great selection of books this year. Even without trying to complete the bingo I read a lot of LGBT books and went on a little binge of m/m books which were divine. I found a couple of favourites doing that, one even became one of my Top 5 for the year! Actually looking at the list four books from my bingo ended up on my Top 5 of 2018 which was excellent. But that is for another post to come.

Looking at my post in January it’s full of optimism because I was going to be more productive and organised. It’s only slightly comical how that has failed.

“I am looking to get a full card this year” – Serendipitous success

“My second idealistic goal is actually doing updates through the year” – Failed hilariously

“Review them” – Smidge successful

I suppose, one can forgive the neglect since I managed to achieve a full card. No updates and few reviews aside, it might be my first win at total completion. I have listed the books below with links if they have reviews if you want to check them out. I will be creating my 2019 Book Bingo card soon if you want to join in for next year, or you are welcome to use one of the ones I have created in previous years.
