So as you’ll be able to tell I didn’t really complete Reading Bingo this year as I didn’t read a collection of short stories – the book I put for that was just a single story. I also didn’t really read a forgotten classic as Emile Zola’s Therese Raquin is well known (although it was kind of forgotten to me as it had languished unread on my TBR for years before I finally picked it up so maybe it should count). I’m happy with what I did manage to check off on my bingo card though and it’s a nice chance to show off some more great books!
