Book Bingo 2017 – Crossing the Finish Line…Just

Despite being pretty much forgotten about since I first posted this in January (no surprise there), I have actually managed a Bingo win in these final days of the year! How serendipitous. When I was paying attention I actually really enjoyed choosing books for these categories. I think I’m actually going to keep them for next year as well, there are many ones I didn’t get to read and would love to, and would love to read more of what I did.

I will be writing up reviews for those without them at some stage, I’ll update the links as they come. I’ve linked the Goodreads page which has my star rating on them as a start. I can recommend most of what I read, there were a few that fell short, but that’s ok, the good books balanced out the bad ones in the end. Once again I also discovered some great books and authors on the way which is a win in itself too.

Book Bingo 2017

BingoIt’s time again for another Book Bingo! Having gotten so close to finishing last year I’m looking forward to maybe completing the card this year, but even getting a line or two would be a great achievement.

I have chosen a range of categories this year, reusing some of the ones I didn’t complete last year, as well as the standard favourites. I am trying to diversify my reading this year so instead of just reading from another country or with a character of a difference sexual preference, I am adding in an author of a different ethnicity and expanding my previous LGBQT category to read more from each of the different voices. I’ve also switched up my genres and formats so it should be an interesting selection I find. I am aiming to provide updates on progress at the end of each month, and when I review a book for the bingo I will include the icon again too.

Are you going to participate in a Book Bingo this year? As in previous years you are more than welcome to borrow my card for your own Book Bingo, just remember to link to my page and attribute me properly.

Happy reading!
