BINGOOOOO!! Bookish Bingo Challenge Completed

holidaybingofinalpic

I finally finished reading Twelve Years A Slave yesterday, which means I was able to fill the very last square in the Bookish Bingo: Holiday Edition challenge. With five days to spare, I can now say: BINGOOOOO!! 😀

To be honest, when I started this challenge I didn’t believe I could actually manage to complete all the squares. I guess I was lucky and I found a lot of spare time to read anyway, helping me complete this challenge. This Bookish Bingo has helped me read books I normally won’t pick up that easily, and I loved doing this challenge because of exactly that reason. Thank you Great Imaginations for hosting! I had a blast. 😀

Top 5 Favorites:

  1. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (5/5)
    Without doubt this was one of my favorite reads of both this challenge and 2014 in general. This dystopian classic is a brilliant masterpiece and definitely worth reading if you haven’t already.
  2. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (4,5/5)
    I have read City Of Bones before and enjoyed it, but I have to say I like this prequel trilogy SO much better than the actual series! I have Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess lined up to be read ASAP before I continue The Mortal Instruments series…
  3. Nothing Everything Nothing by Casia Schreyer (4,5/5)
    Very strong book about teenage insecurity, bullying and suicide attempts, and without doubt worth reading. Left me speechless!
  4. Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer (4,5/5)
    Another very strong book about what really goes on in the meat industry. Safran Foer mixes facts with parts of his biography, and some of the facts are quite shocking. Not recommended if you have a weak stomach!
  5. Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire by J.K. Rowling (4,5/5)
    The Harry Potter series has been one of my favorite series when I was growing up, and I never get tired of rereading them!
