I haven’t participated in a reading challenge in a while and I love these bingo challenges so I decided why not join in on the Summer bookish bingo! 

The Details:

  • Every new season has a new bingo card. This one is for books read in the months of June, July, and August.
  • 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
  • I’m getting rid of the giveaway component for now because I’m broke.

The Card: 


So far this month I’ve read three books and those three are: 

Name in Title:

Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson (I really should get extra points for having the same last name as the character, but that’s just not how it works) 


White Cover: 

This Impossible Light by Lily Myers 


A Book with a Map: 

Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore 


Set reads for various categories: 

Revolution and Rebellion:  

The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

On your tbr forever:

Travel: 

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins (seriously going to have to buy a lot of books for this challenge…) 


Well that is all! I have a lot of awesome books to look forward to for the next three months! Here’s to hoping I can buy the ones I meantioned for some of these categories that I don’t have a copy of yet… fingers crossed… 

Let me know which one of these books intrigues you most solely based on the cover! Also, I would love to know your thoughts on any of these you have already read! 

Well, now I’m exhausted, excited, and in need of sleep. 

-Till next time!

    1. The sad thing is I’ve heard terrible things about Bad Girl Gone… just that the writing and characters are written poorly and I’m reading it to give it a chance because I was drawn in by the cover. But Book of Whispers seems like it’s going to be amazing!

  1. I do the same thing as you for Bingo, I print out the board and write in titles of books that fit each square. They Both Die at the End will not be published until September. And instead of buying all the books you need for the squares, why not borrow them and support your library?

    1. Ohh darn I didn’t realize they Both Die in the end wasn’t gonna be released until September! 😱 It’s not really practical at all for me to use my library. I don’t have a car anymore and my library is really far away now and ordering books online and owning them on my personal shelves is something I take pride in. Plus I love the feeling I get upon browsing my shelves filled with all the books I have read and loved.

        1. Honestly probably not… I actually had a discussion about this topic a long while back that got a lot of discussion going. I think they do have overdrive for ebooks, but I feel better when I can directly support an author by purchasing their book (even though I know reading Library books still supports the author). Plus it’s like I said I like owning my books and creating my own little library of books. Plus I have this bad thing that happens that when I read a book from the library after a while I completely forget about the book and what it was about and having the books on my shelves keep those memories alive and are super helpful to remember the titles and the authors of lessor talked about books I’ve read (for example: Blindsided by Pricilla Cummings) it’s really as simple as personal preference and convenience.

          1. To each their own. Personally, I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have access to any libraries. Not everyone is privileged enough to be able to buy every single book that they want to read.

          2. I definitely agree. I don’t always have the money for it either, but I save up as much as I can and try and get deals on book Depository and amazon when I can. Honestly I don’t think I will be able to buy all the books I want to for this challenge, but I take it all one day at a time. That’s the only way I can really live.
