So, I know I have a lot of reading challenges and redathons on board but I just cannot resist. I have heard a little bit on booktube about the Reddit’s Fantasy Bingo 2017. This is a Bingo Challenge focusing mainly on fantasy books. Sign me up now! This Bingo challenge will run from April 1st 2017 to March 31st 2018.
THE BINGO CARD:
*2017 Bingo Period lasts from April 1st 2017 – end of day March 31st 2018
*You can’t use the same book or author more than once on the card. One square=one book/author.
*Re-reads: You can only use one square for a re-read–all other books must be first time reads. The point of bingo is to explore new grounds, so get out there and explore books you haven’t read before. 🙂
*The mods will assign ‘Reading Champion’ flair to anyone that completes the entire card by the end of the challenge.
*Anyone completing five squares in a row will be entered into a drawing at the end of the challenge for whatever prizes we can get together. Note: since I put this together I will exempt myself from winning any prizes.
*Not a hard rule, but I would encourage everyone to post about what you’re reading, progress, etc, in at least one of /u/MikeOfThePalace’s monthly book discussion threads. Let us know what you think of the books you’re reading! Also, if you’re looking for recommendations, the monthly threads are a goldmine for finding new reading material.

I have abided by all the rules and am looking forward to beginning to tick off the squares. Are you going to join in on this challenge? Do you enjoy fantasy novels? Do you have any fantasy novels to recommend? Let me know in the comments.
