Bookish Bingo Spring 2016 Complete

 

I think this is possibly the fastest I’ve ever completed a Bookish Bingo card, in just under 2 months, with no DNFs. I think the readathon I participated in was a huge help. Some of the books I was reading for various squares I really wasn’t getting anywhere with, even though I liked them, found others. I stuck to some of my plan, found other books for other squares.

You can see my Goodreads list here

A mini review post of some of the titles here (I will probably have another mini review post with more of this list at some point by the end of may).

 

Best Books - Court of Fives, Paper Princess, Burn Baby Burn, Awake at Dawn, Jellico Road (the friends who recced this to me were right - I was told I would cry my eyes out and I did), Wild Swans., Unrivaled, Exit Pursued by a Bear.

 

Worst Books - There was nothing I flat out hated, though didn’t really like the Serpent King or An Inheritance of Ashes. Passenger was quite disappointing. I may read other books instead of these ones by the end of May.
