Spring Bookish Bingo!

It’s time for Spring Bookish Bingo, my friends! This challenge is hosted by Bekka @ Pretty Deadly Reviews and started March 1st. It will continue throughout the remainder of the month, along with April and May. I usually have my board up by now, but I haven’t read as much as I was hoping so far this month, which is ok. That’s what I’ll be doing tonight — catching up!

For now, let’s take a look at what I have read so far for this challenge, and how many squares I’ve daubed. I’m using little blue stars to knock out my squares this season.

Square Ideas

I was aiming for a bingo up and down in the first column, but I may end up switching things around and going for a bingo in the 4th row across. I was going to read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas for POC on Cover, if I do that. And read The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco for the Witches square. Who knows! It all depends on what I decide to read!

But if you guys could give me some recommendations for good books in the Politics/Government category, that would be awesome!

  1. I’m participating! So far, I have eight squares knocked out (but no bingos): Paranormal (Durarara!!, Vol. 4 by Ryohgo Narita), Scary (Durarara!!, Vol. 5 by Ryohgo Narita), Adapted to TV/Movie (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey), 500+ pages (Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands), LGBTQ+ MC (Trick by Natalia Jaster), Historical (Les Miserables by Victor Hugo), Multi POV (Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith), and Nonfiction (American Spring by Walter Borneman). I’m currently reading my Magic and 2017 Debut books. I had a kind of hard time with last season’s bingo, but this one has been a lot easier for me 🙂

    Ooh, The Bone Witch is a great idea for Witches! I’d been wondering what I should do for that square.

    Best of luck with your bingo-ing!!

    1. Oh, wow! You’re doing fantastic!! At the rate you’re going, you’ll have your entire board filled and all kinds of bingo’s! I’ve always wanted to read One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. How was it? And I have to agree with you… this season’s board is a lot easier than last season’s, I think! Hopefully I’ll get a few bingo’s 😊 I need to read The Bone Witch because it’s sitting on my NetGalley shelf and needs to be read soon. But another option for Witches is Truthwitch. I’ve always wanted to read that one! But I need to read Bone Witch more. So, I don’t know… decisions, decisions. 😂 Good luck with your bingo board!! 🍀📚

  2. I’d love to take part in a bookish Bingo challenge one day, just need to find the perfect board for me and my blog! 😀
    Good luck with this one Megan, and I hope you manage to find a politics/government book, I can’t think of any I can recommend at the moment. Not really my kind of thing if I’m being honest. 🙂

    1. They’re fun! I hope you join in on one soon! 😊 Thanks… I probably won’t even get around to the political book anyway… unless I absolutely have to for a bingo or something. But I’m hoping not, because that’s not really my thing, either. 😂

  3. Good luck with your bookish bingo, Megan! I’ll participate one day, but maybe not this year. Or maybe I’ll surprise myself. Been trying to diversify my reads lately!
    The only recommendation I have for politics/government is Power Concedes Nothing by Connie Rice. I had to read it for one of my GE Diversity courses but I thought it was a deeply engrossing read, which surprised me, because it’s definitely not the type of book I’d read voluntarily haha. But it’s a great read, and I highly recommend it if you can’t find another book to fill the square 😀

  4. I have a really daft question 😀 … PoC on cover… what does the PoC stand for?
    I’m terrible for keeping up with all the abbreviations and phrases when it comes to bookish community. It took me quite a while to figure out, for example, when people started talking about shipping. I know.. I sound terrible! 😀

    As for politic/gov book.. one sprung to my mind: Money Mafia by Paul Hellyer… I guess, you could class it as a controversial read, however I find that the controversial reads can be quite interesting/entertaining sometimes.

    1. Thank you for the politics/government recommendation! I may skip that square altogether, but I need some good recs just in case I end up needing it for a bingo. 😊 As far as your question goes… it’s not daft AT ALL! When I first started blogging, and when the diversity movement started going really strong, I was seeing anagrams and abbreviations all over the place and had absolutely no idea what they meant!! (Some of them I still don’t!) So when I first saw the POC abbreviation, I also had to ask someone what it meant. So don’t feel bad for asking!! Anyway, POC stands for “person/people of color”. ☺️

  5. Always thought this bookish bingo very interesting! Helps A LOT in diversifying your reading habits. Don’t think I’d ever participate in one though. I just have so many books I want to read soon and they most likely to never help me complete a bingo card! 😀 😀 Best of luck on getting that Bingo though. I’m trying to think of political/government books, but I just keep on having the House of Card series (as books, not the Netflix show). 😛 Maybe that would be something you’d be interested in? 😀

    1. They are fun! I did pretty well with bingo’s last season, but not so sure I’ll do well this time around. Gonna try, though! As for House of Cards… I’d love to check it out and see what it’s about. Who is the author? I’ll jump over to Goodreads and read some reviews. Thanks for the recommendation!

      1. Michael Dobbs! I had that book in my TBR since 2015 (just saw it and amazed by how long it’s been now). 😀 😀 😀 I can’t tell you if it’ll be as amazing as watching Kevin Spacey do Frank Underwood, but maybe it’s actually a great story. 😛
