It’s Reading Bingo Time! Will it be a full house for 2019? #ReadingBingo

I’ve really enjoyed doing Reading Bingo over the last couple of years so couldn’t resist the chance to see whether I’d successfully filled in my bingo card for 2019. As ever, I don’t look at the bingo card during the year I just read what I want to read and then at the end of the year look through my reading to see if I’ve managed a full house.

So without further ado…

A Book With More Than 500 Pages

A Question of Trust by Penny Vincenzi

A Forgotten Classic

Middlemarch by George Eliot!

This obviously isn’t a forgotten classic so I’m cheating a bit here but I’m counting it because it kind of was a forgotten book on my TBR as I’ve owned it ever since I was a teenager but had never read it before 2019, which is shameful especially as when I finally read it I loved it!

So if I can get away with my cheat on Middlemarch then I’ve achieved a full house! Woo Hoo! I do love doing this every year, it’s so nice to look back over my reading and pick books for categories different to just which are my favourite reads. If you do Reading Bingo please link to your post below as I love reading these posts. 🙂

  1. I love that you don’t look at the card during the year! Forgotten classic is sort of weird though, because I can’t think of a book that actually fits that description, but I think middlemarch works because I don’t know how many kids have that as required reading anymore….

  2. Well done, Hayley. You’ve had some great reads this year. And you’ve reminded me that I want to read The Conviction of Cora Burns. I promised myself I would read it when it first came out, and still haven’t (yet). I will.

    • Thank you 🙂 It was a fabulous reading year. I highly recommend The Conviction of Cora Burns, it’s such a brilliant novel and one that has really stayed with me. I hope you get to read it this year and that you enjoy it as much as I did.
