Can you believe we’re in the last days of 2014? Wow! Time flew so fast! I’m glad the year is over but at the same time I am wishing I had more time because of Bookish Bingo! These last months of the year were a little too hectic for my taste and I lost my reading mojo.

I managed to read only 17 books from October to December. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Even though this was not enough to complete the Bookish Bingo Holiday Edition Challenge hosted by the lovely ladies at Great Imaginations, I feel like a winner because I managed to squeeze reading in the midst of everything I went through in this last trimester of the year and I made T W Oย  B I N G O S!!!!!!

I did the Summer Edition of this challenge and made one bingo. For this one I wanted to make 2 bingos and I did it!!!

So, let me call it:

Here’s my 2014 Holiday Edition Bookish Bingo Card:

I can’t finish this post without thanking Great Imaginations for this fun challenge. I will definitely sign for next year’s Bookish Bingo challenges. Even though my reading choices arenโ€™t based entirely by the bingo card, Iโ€™ll do my best for next time to get at least 3 Bingos. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I guess that’s all folks.

Did you sign up for this challenge? How did you do?
