2014 Book Bingo Reading Challenge Final Results

Even though the year is over, I’m calling it done for the 2014 Book Bingo Reading Challenge. Here is my final scorecard:

Bingo Challenge 2014Here is what I counted, by column, starting with the left. Any reviews are linked.

Five books from my TBR pile:

Mix It Up:



  • Fantasy: I count one of the overages from the five books series above, The Silver Chair, C. S. Lewis
  • Free space: I count the other overage from the series above, The Last Battle, C. S. Lewis
  • Historical Fiction: Girl in Hyacinth Blue, Susan Vreeland
  • Mystery: Ghostwalk, Rebecca Stott
  • Romance: Eleanor & Park, Rainbow Rowell

New Releases:

As you can see, I achieved Bingo twice with the Mix It Up and Genre columns. I came close with the bottom row. If only I’d read a few more new releases. I also came close with row 2, but I’m not sure how I could have done it given I’d maxed out the TBR boxes. As far as I understand, I would probably have needed to read seven books from my TBR pile to mark it off, and I didn’t do that, for sure. Not too shabby, any way.
