Fall Bookish Bingo

autumn

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.

Stand-Alone: Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham (Have not yet started)

Back List: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (In the middle of reading)

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.

Bye,

The Book Prophet

  4. You’re finally on WordPress. Yay! And you’re doing bingo even cooler. 🙂 You’ve got a lot of good choices on your TBR. A Thousand Pieces of You is also on my TBR alone with We Were Liars. Someone had suggested Fangirl to me for the college block. Maybe you could read that. I actually just read a book that fills my college slot this week. 24 books is a lot to do by December with school and everything. I hope you make it. 🙂 We need to find you some shorter books that don’t drag like Carry On and Passenger. 😂 Whenever I read too many books like that, I always go for a quick contemporary read so I don’t end up in a slump. You’re like me with reading several books at a time. I’ve been doing that for about six months now, and I think that’s why I’ve read 107 out of my 100 books for the GR challenge. Good luck, Savannah! 🙂

      I’m really liking WordPress so far. It’s way more different than Weebly but I love it. I thought of Fangirl but I have already read it and it’s lengthy. I think as long as I choose to read instead of watch Netflix I should be able to do it, and if I read during the weekends. I’m more than halfway through Passenger now and it’s actually starting to get better. I haven’t gotten any farther in Carry On yet, though, but there’s no going back now haha. I made sure to add as much contemporary as I could (I don’t own much contemporary so it was a bit difficult). I’ve never read more than 4 books at a time before, and I’m surprised that I’m not over-whelmed.
