We’re nearing the end of Q1 of 2019, and it’s time for a Book Bingo update.
My fellow Book Bingo-ers, I’m interested to hear what you’ve read so far this year — please tell me in the Comments. Also — if any of those categories is staring you down and you’re not sure what to read… let me know! I love a good book recommendation challenge.
The good news: I’m over halfway done! 15 of 25 categories completed
The bad news: The 10 categories that remain are gonna be tougher. We’re looking at Fairy Tale, South Pacific, and Edgar Award: First Novel. And while I’m anticipating these will be the most challenging, invariably a category that seems innocuous is the one that trips me up and has me scrambling in December. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, here’s a list of the categories I’ve completed and the books I read for each one.
My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
