Netgalley Summer Bingo #NetGalleyBingo

I know I said I was not going to take on any more challenges this year, but because I am reading a lot of books I received through Netgalley, I thought this would just focus my reading a bit. Te Bingo runs from July 1st to August 31st.

You can find all the details at https://bookish.netgalley.com/bookish-lifestyle/06/2021/netgalley-bingo/. You can only use a book for one prompt, but I will be using books for more than one challenge. In fact, most of the books I am reading or listening to for my 20 books of Summer challenge are from Netgalley.
