Netgalley Summer Bingo 2021

Hi Blisses,

I’m so excited about this. One of my bookish friends on Twitter, Hannah, shared this in our Netgalley Update chat group and I knew I have to do this. I’ve been struggling with my NetGalley ARCs. Yesterday, I posted my Netgalley Shelf update, and obviously, I’m not doing well. I have 81 unread ARCs on Netgalley. Half of them are from last and the other half need to be reviewed this year. So yeah, I need this Bingo.

How to Play

1.) NetGalley Bingo will run from July 1, 2021 to August 31, 2021.
2.) Each book or action can only be used for a single square on the board. For example, you cannot use the same book for both “Five-star read” and “Share a review to a retail site.”
3.) To score a bingo, you must complete a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row of five squares.
4.) Each prompt is open to your interpretation. For example, the “Raise your Feedback Ratio” prompt can mean that you raised it to the recommended 80% or simply that you went up a percentage.

5.) Share progress and use #NetGalleyBingo on social media

I copy-pasted the above rules from Netgalley’s official blog site, We Are Bookish, and if you want to know more about this Bingo, check out THIS POST. So basically, this is just like a normal Bingo, only the prompts are related to Netgalley. I will update this post till August 31 and even though, we’re already halfway through July, I hope I can still complete several Bingos. I will put a star on prompts I’m already done with.

Here’s the official card:

The prompts are not too hard, maybe except for the ones that involve audiobooks. I don’t really listen to audiobooks a lot so I’ll just take advantage of the other prompts.
