Summer Reading Shapshot | Book Bingo

Êl síla erin lû e-govaned vîn!

Last winter, I discovered an awesome seasonal challenge hosted by Bekka @ Pretty Deadly Reviews. It's called Bookish Bingo, and each season, you get a bingo card with different book categories on each square. If you read a book that matches up with a square, you get to mark it off! It's a really fun way to organize my tbr and discover new books. This summer is the third season I've done it, and here are my results:

(as always, book titles are links to those that have reviews. my favorite reads are highlighted!)

  1. Oh wow! You've read a ton of books over the summer. ^.^' Makes me kind of look at my to-be read pile and cringe, but then again, senior year is going to cause me to just practically not do anything except senior stuff????

  2. This is so cute! I remember playing bingo a lot in middle school math class for some reason 😂 But I've heard so much about Eliza and her Monsters and I don't even really know what it's about. Awesome post, Ellie!

  3. The Kite Runner is amazing, and what a great idea for a post! Book Bingo...I'd love to have a crack at it. I'm so jealous of how many books you've read, my reading's been lacking lately...
