I haven’t signed up for many challenges this year, but Julie and Lynn are hosting a Bookish Bingo at Chapter Break that sounds fun.

The rules:

Each month they’ll upload a new bingo card. You download the bingo card and mark off squares as you read books each month. At the end of the month, they will post their bingo cards. Link up your post or post your own bingo card in the comments.

The monthly winner will be the person with the most marked squares. None of that across, diagonal, up and down, corners stuff. Just the number of squares. Be sure to include the books you’ve read for each of the squares. Only books read during the current month count. You may use the same book to fill multiple squares. They’ll announce the winner the following month to allow everyone time to link up their posts.

Here’s my January card:

I didn’t do too badly. 10 squares, but a couple might be a stretch.

Dead body – Gone Girl

Non-fiction – Empire of Sin

Set in a city – Empire of Sin

Artist/poet/writer – Gone Girl

Plane ride – All the Old Knives

Historical – Serafina and the Black Cloak

Cop/fireman – Empire of Sin

Friends to Lovers – All the Old Knives (this one’s a stretch, but they were friends before they were lovers before they were “friends.” so I’m counting it.)

Tourist location – Serafina and the Black Cloak

I think February’s card will be posted tomorrow. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s on it.
