Hey lovely people! I’m back from Spain, I had a lovely time (despite it being freezing cold!), my next visit will definitely be in summer time. I have one question though – siesta, why? Don’t get me wrong, I’m partial to an afternoon nap but why must everything shut for like 4 hours? I’m ready to go shopping at 1.30pm, nope – siesta’s starting, shops won’t reopen till 5.30pm.
Anyway, I’ve been patiently waiting for the next round of bookish bingo to start and now it’s here, hosted by Bekka @ PrettyDeadlyReviews. The objective is to get as many bingo’s as possible (five across, up, down or diagonal.) This round of bingo is for books read in Dec 16, Jan 17 and Feb 17. I’ve got a few books in mind for some of the squares but others, I have no idea, so please check out my TBR and where you see ?????, please recommend a book! You get a gold star if the book you recommend is already on my shelf! I’m not expecting to read every book or complete the whole card but the more books I have in mind, the more bingo’s I’ll hopefully get.
