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.

  1. 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!

    1. Oooooooh, definitely adding both to the list, Eva!! I’ve yet to try a Jandy Nelson book, but it seems that they are fantastic and with a rec from you, I’ll definitely have to try! 😀


      1. My friend keeps pushing it at me, but I kept pushing it off – but now I super need to get on it. And oooooooh, very funny because I just commented on that on your post. XD I SUPER can’t wait to see what you end up thinking about it!!

      1. Well, I basically take the Goodreads shelves I create each month and sort them by release date, blog tour date, and priority. Then I have columns for my reading status and to remind me to post reviews. I MAY overly complicate things…

      2. It’s the only way I have any shot at finishing everything on time. At least the ARCs anyway. Everything else is kind of whatever at this point. You’ll have to let me know if you devise a brilliant system, so we can compare notes!

  2. 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. ☺️
