YA Summer Reads Bingo Update

When I first started this, I so didn’t think that I would be so into this. But literally, apparently my days from being into bingo as a kid has come back to haunt me and I’m in deep.

If you remember from a few weeks ago, I posted about me beginning the glorious YA Summer Reads Bingo put on by Kyera @ Kyera’s Library. It’s not to late to get in on the bingo action, especially since you can use all your books from June & July. It’s so much, gals and guys, and I so recommend joining in.

ALSO, I AM 7 BOOKS AWAY FROM A FULL BLOWOUT, AND I CAN’T DEAL WITH IT. Here are some ideas if you wanted to join in.

A Book Genre That You Don’t Normally Read – Wild Irish Women (non-fiction) by Marian Broderick – um, thank you, glorious book bingo, because I finially finished this book that has been sitting on my currently reading shelf for more than a year.

    Wow, you’ve done so well already! A yellow cover is hard! We should all be feminist is kinda yellow though, so maybe that could work? For the bookset in summer, you should totally read I’ll give you the sun by Jandy Nelson. It’s one of my favourites!

    I think you can read The Summer I Turned Pretty(Jenny Han) for a book that takes place in summer. I haven’t read it but my sister loved it.
    I’m glad you loved Eliza And Her Monsters. I’ve been thinking of buying it. ☺️
