20 books of summer - update #4

I'm almost done with this Bingo. I might fill a couple more spots but definitely not all. Some I can't fill not because of the books but because of my lifestyle. I'm a freelancer, so I don't go on vacations. That's why the box Read on vacation is impossible for me to fill. The same goes for Read on a boat, tent or cabin, for the same reason. I don't usually read graphic novels, but I might make an exception and try something for the box Graphic novel or comic book. Not sure yet. The three that are left I might fill by the end of summer:


  1. First book of a new series
  2. Adapted for the big screen
  3. YA or children’s title


And here is what I've read so far. There are quite a few Bingos there, so I think I didn't do too bad. The books corresponding to the boxes filled are listed below the graphics.
