When Kristin of My Life As A Teacup launched her Summer Book Bingo challenge, I jumped right in because it sounded a fun way to decide what to read and I never joined a bookish bingo before. I made all my plans on my journal (yes, now I have a bullet journal even to track the books I read), thinking I could easily make at least one Bingo in three months.
But then, life happened. I spent July only studying for my finals, then I’ve been away for two weeks in August and all my goals, well, abandoned. What annoys me is that I ALMOST finished a Bingo, I just needed one more book!
Here is what I’ve read.
Short Stories: The Man with the Twisted Lip (from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) and Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell
A Classic Novel: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Free Space: The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
Non-fiction: Let it Out by Katie Dalebout
Sci-fi/fantasy: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
I was planning to make my Bingo with Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell for the Young Adult Literature category, but I didn’t even manage to start the book, I was also thinking to read something more, maybe A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro, for the Foreign Author square, but again I didn’t have enough time.
I’m still happy with the amout of books I managed to read this Summer, despite my crazy schedule of study and work, I even reached my Goodreads goal! So now I can totally dive in my Fall TBR list (more about that soon, stay tuned!).
