It’s Reading Bingo Time for 2019! #ReadingBingo

Yes I know I said last week that my final Top Reads post was going to be the last for 2019 but you can blame Hayley over at RatherTooFondOfBooks for this one. I spotted #ReadingBingo on her blog yesterday and just had to give it a go myself. Did I get a full house for 2019? Well, let’s see. If you click on the titles under the book covers you will be able to read my reviews.

A Book With More Than 500 Pages


The Love Letter by Lucinda Riley

A Forgotten Classic

Unfortunately, I don’t have anything which fits this category as the vast majority of the books I’ve read were published this year! Must make an effort to read a classic next year.

A Book That Became a Movie

I don’t have anything for this category either although I think that several books I’ve read would make amazing films!

A Book Published This Year

Dead Stock by Rachel Ward

A Book With a Number in the Title

A Thousand Roads Home by Carmel Harrington

A Book Written By Someone Under 30

Oh dear, I’m not doing too well. I don’t think any of the books I’ve read have been by younger authors! Although please correct me if I’m wrong.

A Book With Non Human Characters

The Beekeeper of Aleppo

The Beekeeper of Aleppo by Christy Lefteri (no review for this one)

A Funny Book

Between the Stops by Sandi Toksvig

A Book By A Female Author

Cora Burns Cover

The Conviction of Cora Burns by Carolyn Kirby

A Book With a Mystery

Flesh and Blood by Emma Salisbury

A Book With A One Word Title

Breakers by Doug Johnstone

A Book of Short Stories

Free Square

The Golden Hour by Beatriz Williams

A Book Set on a Different Continent

One Winter Morning by Isabelle Broom

A Book of Non Fiction

Bookworm by Lucy Mangan

The First Book By A Favourite Author

The Bookshop on the Shore by Jenny Colgan

Yes I know that’s not Jenny Colgan’s first novel but it’s the first I have read by her and I enjoyed it so much that she is definitely in the category of a favourite author now!

A Book You Heard About Online

The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing by Mary Paulson-Ellis

A Best-Selling Book

Postscript by Cecelia Ahern

I don’t really follow the book charts much as I just read what I fancy, but I would imagine that this books did rather well based on the success of PS I Love You.

A Book Based on a True Story

When I Had a Little Sister by Catherine Simpson

A Book At The Bottom of Your TBR Pile

Holy Island by LJ Ross

A Book Your Friend Loves

Washington Black

Washington Black by Esi Edugan (no review)

A Book that Scares You

Violet by SJI Holliday

A Book That Is More Than Ten Years Old

Nope, nothing for this one I’m afraid.

The Second Book In A Series

Sycamore Gap (DCI Ryan Mysteries, #2)

Sycamore Gap by LJ Ross

A Book With a Blue Cover

One Week Til Christmas by Belinda Missen

So there we go, not quite a full house but a respectable 21/25. I did enjoy looking back over my reading year and picking books for the different squares. If you do Reading Bingo please let me know as I’d love to see your choices!

  1. Thanks for linking to my post, I’m glad I inspired you to have a go at Reading Bingo! You did really well – I only got a full house because I cheated counting Middlemarch as a forgotten classic. Some of the challenges are hard, it took me ages to find an author under 30 that I’d read in 2019. It’s a fun post to put together though and nice to look back at a reading year. 🙂
