Wrap-Up: August Authorfest and Bookish Bingo

I had two fun reading challenges throughout August. The first was August Authorfest hosted at Chuckles Book Cave. The aim of this challenge was to read new-to-me authors and I managed 15 so I am very happy with this.

We Only Saw Happiness by Gregoire Delacourt
Resin by Ane Riel
How To Love A Jamaican by Alexia Arthurs
The Wrath And The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
Revolutions by Mateusz Skutnik
The Danes by Clarke
The Path To Change by Pope Francis
Of Faith And Fidelity by Evan Ostryniuk
The Tale Of The Missing Man by Manzoor Ahtesham
Desirable Body by Hubert Haddad
The Gravediggers' Bread by Frederic Dard
Angelica Stone by Susi Osborne
Waiting For Monsieur Bellivier by Britta Rostlund (review 10th Sept)
Sleeping Through War by Jackie Carreira  (review 7th Sept)
Dark Paradise by Gene Desrochers (review 11th Sept)

Secondly I joined in with Bookish Bingo which is hosted each month at Chapter Break, a new-to-me blog.
There are 25 Bingo squares to fill. Books can be put into more than one square - as long as they meet the criterion of course!

And, here's my grid with the books I read in August. They've not all been blogged yet so if the picture's not linked, its review will be posted soon! 19 out of 25. Not too shabby!

I'm going to do September's Bookish Bingo too and there's a new grid to match up:


  1. You did great with both new-to-you authors and Bingo. Fun challenges!

  2. Wow! You did great with both of these challenges. I will have to join in on a Bingo at some point because I think they always look like fun. Have a great September!

    1. I've marked up quite a few on September's bingo card already :-)

  3. You've done really well on both challenges! Congratulations! I'll be doing another new-to-me author challenge in November! I always like the look of these bingo card challenges but my range of genres are limited so a lot of categories don't suit!

  4. Wow I really like how you did the marked up card!!!
