So I will start posting on this blog, and what better way to start then with the Fall Bookish Bingo? If you don’t know what this is, you can check out the original creator, Bekka @ Pretty Deadly Blog. I first saw this on Jill @ Rant and Rave About Books‘ blog, and thought it would be fun to try, and since I haven’t been reading that much lately, this would be a great way to get back in the groove of things.
My reading goal for this year is 40 books, but I’ve only read 29 books… Yeah. I was more than halfway through my goal by the middle of the year, but then I got in a few reading slumps (this is mainly due to the pure evil that is Netflix). But, I am determined to complete by goal by the end of the year, no matter what it takes (reading graphic novels and short books will help loads).
Here is the bingo board:
That is 24 books people… 24 books. I know that there is no way in heaven nor hell that I will be able to read all of those books by the end of the year, but I am surely going to try. I picked out the books for each category that I’m going to try and read by the end of the year, and they’ll be listed below.

To make this challenge easier for me, I picked out the shortest books I could find that still matched the category, as well as books I am either currently reading or had started reading and stopped due to it being boring or not wanting to finish it. I am currently reading 5 books from the list above, and have finished one.
Let me know if you’re taking part in Fall Bookish Bingo too. If so, I would love to know what books you’ve picked for the categories.
