r/Fantasy Bingo Challenge

You can read more about it here, but essentially, it’s a reading challenge running from April to April where you have to read enough books belonging to those categories to get a Bingo, though most people try for a full card (or several). An author can only be used once, and only one reread is allowed. I’ve been a participant since its inception (in 2015) and I find it one of the most fun reading challenges out there.

This year, I will be cutting back to one card only, no additional restrictions. I may try for Hero Mode (reviewing every book I use) and having books in three languages on my card, but I’m not sweating it much.

Grey italics mean a book is planned, but hasn’t been read yet.

Current status: 20/25 (80%)
