#LoveOzYA Bingo Challenge: Wrap up


Wow! Can’t believe I made it 😀

My deepest thanks to The YA Room for running this challenge! I’ve actually made a little dent on my TBR 😉 And I’ve had such a good reading month to end the year with! #LoveOzYA has so much to offer our teens (& teen-in-hearts such as myself); tackling critical life issues, establishing identity, and sometimes, saving the world too :p
