The 2015 Bookish Bingo Challenge Wrap Up + Giveaway!

I like to think the 2015 Bookish Bingo Challenge came to me in an epiphany. In reality, it was just one of those random shower thoughts, only it was one that I actually brought to life. When I created this challenge, my only goal was to have at least five people sign up and enjoy it. My blog was, and still is, quite small. But after its launch, the 2015 Bookish Bingo Challenge took off, gained momentum, and in no time those five sign ups arrived. I had reached my goal, and I was ecstatic. Only then I gained about a hundred more sign ups and my brain was just about ready to explode. People from all over the globe were interested in this crazy, spur of the moment, shower idea.

I had planned to post updates and fun things for this challenge on a monthly basis, only I'd severely overestimated my own abilities, and my senior year of high school began to swamp my blogging and reading. I am still extremely ecstatic with the challenge's performance over the course of the past 12 months, and I am glad to tell you that the Bookish Bingo Challenge will be back and even bigger in 2016! I'm excited to improve, and to hopefully see some familiar faces participate again next year!

Please note: While this is a wrap up post for the challenge, the challenge does not end until it has struck 2016 wherever you are located! This challenge is personal and you can squeeze in as many books as you wish before then. This is just a place for everyone to reflect on their progress, and maybe even win some books!

Since I haven't had the chance to do so much reading this year, I haven't completed the whole bingo card as I had hoped, but I've managed to tick off 20 of the tasks. Here's a picture of my card:

I didn't complete an entire line, but I got pretty darn close, and all that matters is that I had fun doing it. How much did you get to cross off? I'm very curious to see who has completed the most tasks. If you have any photos of your cards, you can tweet or instagram them using the hashtag #2015BookishBingoChallenge, or leave a comment below! Go on, brag about how you beat me!

Once again, I cannot thank you all enough for participating! I know this challenge hasn't been without its flaws, but I hope that you've all enjoyed it enough to come back again next year!

P.S. If anyone is interested in helping me host the 2016 Bookish Bingo Challenge, let me know! Either email me or DM me on twitter so we can begin plotting total world domination.
