Spring Bingo Wrap-Up

Spring Bingo final

It’s the end of Spring Bookish Bingo! Bookish bingo is hosted by Becca @ Pretty Deadly Reviews. Spring Bingo was for the months of March, April and May. Just like my board from last season, I didn’t get any BINGOs this year either but I still loved doing it.

I also do this thing where I read what books I was already planning to and try to fit it in with the categories. Is that cheating? I swayed pretty far from the books I thought I was going to read in my introductory post. Fortunately though, all of the books I read this season were ones I really enjoyed (most were four and five stars).

  1. Magic: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V.E Schwab
  2. Spring Release: “Lord of Shadows” by Cassandra Clare
  3. Series Finale: “A Conjuring of Light” by V.E Schwab
  4. Over 500 pages: “A Gathering of Shadows” by V.E Schwab
  5. POC on Cover: “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas
  6. Multi POV: “Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy” by Cassandra Clare
  7. LGBT+ Main Character: “History is All You Left Me” by Adam Silvera
  8. Blue Cover: “Words in Deep Blue” by Cath Crowley
  9. Muslim Main Character: “Magnus Chase and the Hammer of Thor” by Rick Riordan
  10. Just Words on Cover: “Exit West” by Mohsin Hamid

Did you participate? Did you get any BINGOs? What’s your favorite book you read this Spring?

Spring Bookish Bingo!

I participated in Winter Bookish Bingo last season and loved doing it so here I am again! And I love the Spring board even more ! Bookish Bingo is hosted by Bekka @ Pretty Deadly Reviews.

THE DETAILS (TAKEN FROM BEKKA’S BLOG):

  • Every new season has a new bingo card. This one is for books read in the months of March, April and May.
  • The object is to get as many BINGOs as possible (five across, up and down, or diagonal)
  • One square per book
  • You do not have to review these books, or even have a blog, this is simply for books read during the allotted months
  • At the end of May there will be an international giveaway for all participants. The more BINGOs you get, the more entries you get in the giveaway!
  • To participate, simply leave a comment at Bekka’s blogpost!
