#ARMEDWITHABINGO Announcement & Possibility Pile

This year I also joined the #ARMEDWITHABINGO reading challenge hosted by Kriti and Ariel @ Armed with a Book. I thought this sounded cool as it’s a personalised book bingo challenge with regular check-ins, book giveaways, guest posts and more! The challenge has 24 prompts that require individual books for each square (except for the book over 500 pages long, which counts for two!) and it runs throughout the year.

The sign up is open until 15 March, so if this sounds like a fun challenge to you, head on over to their page and let’s BINGO! 😃

So what’s in the bingo? My personalised card below has all the prompts:

I know my announcement is coming in pretty late into January *cough* so I’ve actually managed to already cross of four of the squares so I’m just a tiny bit closer to bingo 🤣

A book in the middle of a series
A book from the last decade (2010-2019)
A young adult novel
A dystopian novel

I still haven’t figured out the books I’m reading for all of the prompts but I do have some ideas. Part of me wants to just “wing it” and see if what I read throughout the year will fit any of the prompts, but that attitude is what caused me to bomb hard last year? So I’ve already started identifying options for some of the prompts 😅 Consider this my mostly “loose” possibility pile. Since I’m trying to cut down on spending most of these are books I already have on my shelves–though I’ma be nice to myself and allow for some of this years’ releases because I mean… I’m only human riiiiiiight? 😬

A book that’s published in 2020
An anthology or poetry collection
A book that a friend recommends
A book that has a number in the title
A fantasty/science fiction

A book by an Indie author
A book with a beautiful cover
A book you saw someone else reading
A book which was gifted/borrowed
A book longer than 500 pages (2 spaces!)

I’ll be sharing progress updates for this along with all the other challenges I’m doing this year in a monthly reading challenges recap post, so be on the look out to see if I’ve managed to cross any other boxes by the end of this month!

Are you joining this reading challenge too? What do you think of my choices? Do you have any suggestions for any of these spaces that you think I must read?

  1. Not joining this challenge, because I already joined the “StartOnYourShelfaThon 🙂
    But it sounds really cool and you chose really good books ! “The ten thousand doors of January” has been recommended to me a lot ! So I’m curious as to how you’ll like it !

    • I’m SO tempted to join in that challenge, Syl! Haha but I’m going to hold off until I see what kinda progress I make with these. It looks like so much fun and I love all the cute resources that CW made for it! 😍 I’m looking forward to trying Ten Thousand Doors! It’s been hyped a lot so I’m hoping it lives up to it for me 🤞🏽 Good luck with the StartOnYourShelfaThon!

  2. I’m also doing this one but I didn’t pick out books so I hope we didn’t have to lol. I am just kinda reading what I want and then seeing if it matches any prompts. So far I’ve read 5 books but no bingo.

    • Nah, I’m pretty sure that we didn’t have to pick out reads for it but I’m trying to stay on top of my challenges this year so I’m taking note of possible books that I’ll read for it. It’s likely that I’ll end up reading whatever my mood dictates and then seeing if it’ll fit or not 🤣 Have you got a bingo yet?


    • Haha I didn’t think that I’d have that problem but apparently this year, it’s a thing 😂There’s one more challenge that I’m really tempted to join but I think I’ll hold off until I see how I do with the challenges I’ve already joined 😅
