Reading Bingo 2014

Updated on March 17, 2014

As I was browsing through some book-related news via my feed reader, I came across the Reading Bingo Challenge 2014 from Retreat by Random House. I know I’ve signed up for a few reading challenges already but I thought this would be fun.

As I go along, I will be updating this post with the links to my reviews.
