The 2016 Bookish Bingo Challenge WRAP UP + GIVEAWAY

Hello friends! It's been a while, hasn't it? (The reason for my falling off the face of the earth this year is a discussion for another day, lol.)

The 2016 Bookish Bingo Challenge had an excellent start this year, and I was so thrilled with the massive number of you who showed interest in this silly little game I conjured up. With the introduction of the exciting new Mystery Missions, the challenge gained more popularity than I had ever expected. It was so exhilarating to have this fun little group of people to discuss books with.

I must admit that as the year passed, I almost completely neglected the challenge. It wasn't my plan to stop blogging this year, but it seems life had plans of its own. It's been a big year for me, and my life has been completely turned upside down. It's not an excuse, but an explanation. Because of this, I was unable to release the final two Mystery Missions as planned. So I am leaving their contents to your discretion. You can use them as free spaces or whatever your heart may desire. Consider it a free pass as a payment for my negligence.

I myself, only read 44 books this year. And completed a total of roughly 21 squares. While it may not seem like a whole lot, considering how busy I've been this year, I'm quite surprised I managed more than 15. 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 #201gBookishBingoChallenge, or leave a comment below! Go on, brag about how you beat me!

As promised, here is the giveaway!
And yes, it is open internationally!

Good luck with the entries!!

As for the future of the challenge, as much as I love hosting this challenge, and the amount of joy, pride and new friends it has brought me, I am unsure of whether or not the challenge will be continuing on into 2017. At the moment, I'm working on a draft of the card, but I'm not sure if I will be publishing it. If enough of you are interested then I guess I will, but for now I'm undecided. Let me know what you think!

Thank you all once again for your ongoing support and involvement in the challenge. I wish you all a Happy New year filled with love and light. Oh, and happy reading!
