October 2021 Reading Challenge: A BINGO Update

 
Five in a row...Bingo!

 

I scored a quick Bingo win for October with five in a row. Yeah, me! Here's what I've read so far (Amazon links included):

SET IN NATURE
Wild Bird by Wendelin Van Draanen (Young Adult) - 5 out of 5 stars!
Must've had a great spine. Picked this one off the library shelf, not knowing anything about it. Glad I did, too...my new favorite author.

A CULTURAL FIND
Amal Unbound by Aisha Saeed (Middle Grade) - Highly recommend!
Recommended by my daughter. She loved it and with good reason. A great read.

MADE INTO A MOVIE
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (Suspense) - 4 out of 5 stars.
Read the book so I could finally watch the movie.

YA ROMANCE BY STACIA LEIGH
Dealing with Blue by Stacia Leigh (Young Adult Romance) - 5 out of 5 stars!
I published this in 2015 with the goal of writing what I wanted to read: laughs and love, and I enjoyed it all over again. Having read it with a 2021 perspective and through a more experienced lens (more writing, more publishing, judging contests, and critiquing), I did see areas to tighten up and improve. Updates have been made. The latest version will be out soon, so stay tuned!

A FORGOTTEN CLASSIC
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (An 1892 Classic) - Nope.
Daughter enjoyed it, hubby thought it was okay, and I was left scratching my head. But at 19 pages long, it blocked out a BINGO square for the win.
