Yule Bingo!

I never really do readathons, but you guys know I could never resist a Harry Potter themed readalong, that some of my best friends are hosting!

Yule Bingo is being hosted by Destiny ❤️, Julie 💚, Melanie 💙, and Samm 💛! And if you’d like to participate, you should request to join their amazing Facebook group, Life & Lit, and then choose your house!

This readathon is going on for the entire month of December, so you have lots of time to fill your board! And there is going to be games and giveaways and they are going to be keeping tally of house points! Here is the bingo board:

Basically, each member I linked above is in charge of their house! And after you choose your house, you will try to complete your house’s bingo line! Only one book per square, and each square you fill is 1 point for your HP house! If you complete your house’s line (i.e. me as a Gryffindor filling all four Gryffindor squares), you get an extra 5 points for your house! But every square you fill nets your house a point! And if you’d like more details, just DM me, or ask in the FB group, because all four ladies are so very helpful!

I hope to complete both my house, Gryffindor, and Ravenclaw! But I’m going to make sure to complete even more if I’m able! But I’m going to put a huge emphasis on Gryffindor, especially since I pledged my allegiance to my Gryffindor captain, Destiny! Here are the books I’m planning on reading:

GRYFFINDOR:

• WEASLEYS – Family Goals: The Book of Etta (The Road to Nowhere, #2) by Meg Elison
• HARRY – Chosen One Trope: Everless (Untitled #1) by Sara Holland
• DUMBLEDORE – Wise Mentor: The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
• MARAUDERS – Book with a Map: Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle, #2) by Jay Kristoff

RAVENCLAW:

• LUNA – Loveable Sidekick: Oathbringer (The Stormlight Archive, #3) by Brandon Sanderson
• MOANING MYRTLE – Tearjerker: Three Sides of a Heart: Stories about Love Triangles edited by Natalie C. Parker
• OLIVANDER – Book with Spells: Sinless (Eye of the Beholder #1) by Sarah Tarkoff
• ROOM OF REQUIREMENT – Favorite Genre: Age of Assassins (The Wounded Kingdom #1) by R.J. Barker

I am beyond words excited to participate in this readalong! And everyone should also check out their Instagram for more content and for photo challenges throughout the month! I hope you all consider joining and you’ll have to let me know if you are a Gryffindor too! Also, if you’d like to buddy read any of these, please also let me know! I hope you guys are already having a wonderful holiday season! And happy reading! ❄⛄

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (The Gryffindor 20th Anniversary Edition)

I know I said that June would be a month where I only read my ARCs, but what kind of reader would I truly be if I didn’t drop everything to reread a new edition of the series that made me a reader? And seriously, I couldn’t resist even if I tried. Look how breathtaking this Gryffindor version is!

And the inside? The inside is even more spectacular!

Each of these four versions, one for each of the different Hogwarts houses, has a few special pages at the beginning and at the end to celebrate the love and glory of that house.

Even though I’m constantly battling an internal crisis over the fact that the new Sorting Hat on Pottermore put me in Ravenclaw, I feel like I am and always have been a Gryffindor. And I suppose that internal struggle, much like Neville Longbottom, is actually very Gryffindor of me.

But I’m here to show you some of this glorious art in the Gryffindor edition, while just trying to celebrate every piece of happiness that J.K. Rowling and this life changing series has given us. I am beyond words of gratitude, so hopefully my pictures suffice.

If you are interested in purchasing the Gryffindor edition or any/all of the other four houses, you can order them at a reasonable price, and with free shipping, from Book Depository!

Hardcover: Gryffindor | Ravenclaw | Hufflepuff | Slytherin
Paperback: Gryffindor | Ravenclaw | Hufflepuff | Slytherin
