“Bingo!” – #LoveOzYA Bingo Challenge


Woo hoo! I’m so excited ūüėÄ

I have planned a book for each square (25 in total) but I am playing another challenge at the same time so it all depends on what book is picked for me to read. Hence, I’ve actually read 12 books out of the 25 BUT it’s all over the place and only got my first Bingo! now.

The orange stars on the Bingo sheet below noted squares I’ve read and the red line is my Bingo!
