Holiday Bingo Wrap up

Dead Beautiful  - Yvonne Woon The One - Kiera Cass The Elite - Kiera Cass The Stand - Stephen King If I Should Die - Amy Plum Alice in Zombieland - Gena Showalter House of Ivy & Sorrow - Natalie Whipple Sea of Shadows  - Kelley Armstrong The Coldest Girl in Coldtown - Holly Black Something Strange and Deadly - Susan Dennard

This weekend I completed the Holiday Bingo card. I did find this one a lot easier to do than the Summer Card. I sort lost enthusiasm for the last one half way through but this one I knew almost immediately what I wanted to read for each square. While my initial plans changed, I did manage to read something for every square (though two squares were books I DNFed).

I created a Goodreads shelf which can be seen here – each book should link to the dates read.

 

Favourite books of the card this time round – Dead Beautiful, House of Ivy and Sorrow, The Shining, The Stand, If I Should Die, Darkly Dreaming Dexter.

Worst books – Crown of Ice and Talon both DNFed.

Honourable mentions to The Elite and The One which were pretty awful but in spite of the stupidity of the characters I did kind of love them.
