Alright everyone, did you fill out your Bookish Bingo Cards? Share your cards, and link up your posts below!
Recap of the rules:
Each month we will upload a new bingo card. You download the bingo card and mark off squares as you read books each month. At the end of the month, we will post our own bingo cards. Link up your post or post your own bingo card in the comments.
The monthly winner will be the person with the most marked squares. None of that across, diagonal, up and down, corners stuff. Just the number of squares. Be sure to include the books you’ve read for each of the squares. Only books read during the current month count. You may use the same book to fill multiple squares. We’ll announce the winner the following month to allow everyone time to link up their posts.
And to encourage more people than Julie and I to participate, we are going to have a quarterly raffle!

Mark up the card however you wish to claim the squares.
A few clarifications from the vague descriptions this month. (There is only so much room in those little squares to type!)
- From the Boy’s POV: This would be a romance told from the male point of view. Like Hopeless and Losing Hope. Losing Hope would count, as it’s from Holder’s POV.
- Helper Professional: This would be anyone who “helps” for a living. Police, Fireman, Cook, Housekeeper. Nanny. You get the idea.
- Free is NOT the same as the Free Space. This is a book received for free.
I got 22 out of 25. Not too shabby. I did totally fail on Shelf Love this month, though. 🙁
The books I read in August (that covered bingo squares – I read others that did not):
