Christmas Book Bingo by The Never Ending Bookshelf

Happy Holidays everyone!

The lovely Jess over at The Never Ending Bookshelf started a Christmas themed Book Bingo towards the end of November that really caught my eye. The below bingo card really inspired me to sit down and tackle some Chrissy books.

While I haven’t read too many Christmas themed books this December, I was able to read three of them. The three books are all QUILTBAG romances that I had mixed feelings about – however two of them were quite enjoyable and fun books about the holiday season.

So, using the content from the above three books I was able to cross off five of the prompts.

Snow: The Christmas Throwaway by RJ Scott because the main character sadly spends the first half of Christmas Eve sleeping on a bench in the snow ๐Ÿ˜ž

Gifts Exchanged: The Ugliest Sweater by Gillian St. Kevern because half way through the book there is a gift exchange which features one of the characters giving quite a naughty but Christmas themed present ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿญ

FREE CHOICE: I choose Santa ๐ŸŽ… In Better Not Pout by Annabeth Albert, main character Nicolas dresses as Santa multiple times to help with a charity drive because he just cannot say no.

Christmas in the Title: The Christmas Throwaway by RJ Scott because tadar! It’s in the title ๐Ÿ˜‹

Scrooge/Grinch Character: Better Not Pout by Annabeth Albert because Nicolas starts off as such a scrooge. Thank goodness he has Teddy to make him see the error of his ways – elf costume and all ๐Ÿงโ€โ™‚๏ธ

So yay! With three books I achieved a Bingo!

Be sure to check out The Never Ending Bookshelf and let Jess know how you went with your Christmas reads! While you’re there why not see how you went on the challenge and post to let us know ๐Ÿ˜„๐ŸŽ…

Long Lost Reviews

Long Lost Reviews Icon

Are you a blogger who keeps telling themselves you’ll get around to writing reviews, but then don’t. Do you write ‘review to come’ on Goodreads only to let them languish for years?

Well then, the blog feature ‘Long Lost Reviews’ is for you.

The aim of the blog feature is to start tackling your review backlog. Whether it’s an in-depth analysis of how it affected your life, one sentence stating that you only remember the ending, or that you have no recollection of reading the book at all. Let’s tackle your review backlog and dig up some long lost reviews!

If you are interested in participating:

  • Post on the Second Thursday of the month.
  • Use the above icon – I can even customise the logo to your colour scheme.
  • Include a link to this post or to my blog.

When you’re ready to start posting, let me know and I will add you to the below list of participating blogs ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks and happy writing!
