New-to-Me Author Summer Bingo FINAL UPDATE

My blogger friend Jessica over at Reading with Jessica has set up a summer bingo challenge with Jana at Artsy Reader Girl. I am going to attempt to play along this summer. I’ll update you with how I’m doing periodically.


The Basics:

  • This event lasts from June 1st-August 31st.
  • You can only count books towards the bingo card if you have not read that author before.
  • Each book only counts for one bingo spot. You can’t use one book for multiple spots.
  • A bingo can be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal.
  • Feel free to use any genre for this challenge. Multiple genres even!
  • Use the hashtag #nasbingo to share updates on social media/blog posts.

Where you can join:


Completed Bingo squares are off. Titles are linked to my reviews.


Recommended by a friend: Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade
Over 400 pages long: One More Step by Assorted Authors – 658 pages and I’m kind of cheating here because this is an anthology. I have read some of the authors, but many were new to me. At least 15 out of 25. It counts, right?
Features a vacation: Vegas Love by Jillian Dodd
First in a series: The Hook Up (Game On, #1) by Kristen Callihan
Standalone: The First Score by Amie Knight

Extra Squares Marked Off:

A Holiday is Celebrated: Worth the Fall (The McKinney Brothers, #1) by Claudia Conner
Contemporary: Get a Life, Chloe Brown (The Brown Sisters, #1) by Talia Hibbert

  2. Congrats! I’ve been curious to see how everyone’s cards turned out but I couldn’t find a central link-up post, so I’ve just kind of been randomly googling, haha. Pleasant surprise to see your site pop up! I haven’t read any of your authors at all, but I recognize a few titles. I’m glad you were able to check off “lesser known” — I’m always interested to see what’s off the beaten path.
