2020 r/Fantasy Bingo Wrap Up

It’s that time of year again when the r/fantasy bingo challenge is wrapping up. Once again I have a actually been able to complete reviews for all of my reads (some are full length and some are mini reviews–link included where possible) I thought I would go ahead and do a wrap up post talking about some of the books I’ve read for this challenge over the past year.

Unlike last year, I didn’t do a themed card. I did, however, try to pick out all of my books ahead of time. That didn’t work out at all because, honestly, I am not great at sticking to any long-term reading schedules. The fate of being a mood-reader. I did, nonetheless, complete the challenge (barely).

HERE IS MY FILLED OUT CARD!

SOME FINAL THOUGHTS

2020 was an exhausting year and I’ll admit that for most of the year this reading challenge was the furthest thing from my mind, even as the person who created it! I didn’t read a ton of books with bingo in mind, except for a few, but those were already in my TBR and were on my list of ‘books I need to get to’ anyway. My strategy after a month or so was just to read whatever and let the books fall where they may. Luckily for me I do read enough in the genre that I could fill my card out with books I happened to have read throughout the year. I feel like I ended up with a pretty interesting and diverse card, even though a lot of my books do tend to skew toward the ‘romance’ end of things, but I had a good mix of sci-fi and fantasy, and even one horror novel! I’m not sure if I’ll be participating in the new 2021 card or not, but most likely I’ll read whatever and see how things end up next March. 🙂

Have you read any of these books? Do any of them catch your attention? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!

    You did a great job!! I had so much fun with it this year, especially because it gave me the opportunity to read some books that were waiting on the sidelines for way too much time, and it made me discover some great new authors (Krista D. Ball first of all! 😍). At the beginning I tried to pick books for the squares but as time passed I just went on reading without too much thoughts to the Bingo, and see which books could be useful for it afterward. But this year I would try and pick in advance the books for it, even if I don’t think it would last… But at least I will try!

    Congrats on finishing, Lisa! I’m surprised I’ve only read four of these, but I see a lot on my TBR. It looks like a fantastic bunch😁

    WOW, that’s some accomplishment!! Congratulations! 🙂
    I was happy to see two of my favorite books – Redishirts and Leviathan Wakes – on your bingo card, as well as Jade City, that was an intriguing series beginner. And I recently finished Winter’s Orbit, which was a delightful read.

      Thank you!
      I enjoyed both Redshirts and Leviathan Wakes more than I thought I would. Redshirts was both exactly what I expected and completely different LOL.
      I want to continue on with The Green Bone Saga even though I felt pretty ‘meh’ on Jade City–I think it may have been my mood at the time. But I loooooved Winter’s Orbit–such a lovely book.
