Another month/season, another challenge! Though I'm still participating in the Summer Libary Challenge hosted by Kate and Kristen @ The Book Monsters, another book event has popped up on my radar and it looks like too much fun to pass up (plus, they will work together). Discovered through The Book Monsters, but hosted by Kara, Lyn, and Bekka @ Great Imaginations, Bookish Bingo is a reading challenge with set guidelines for each square on the grid. The goal: knock out the squares to get a bingo (or more!). Sounds like a rip-roaring good time to me!
Here's the Bingo card
Here are the rules:
- One square per book. For instance, Mockingjay starts with M and is also a series finale, but can only count for one square.
- All reading must be done during the months of July, August, and September.
- Enter the giveaway! Multiple Bingos gets you more entries and a fully covered card gets you five extra entries. Woohoo
- At the end of September, provide a link with your reviews during the Bingo Wrap-Up.
