This weekend I completed the Holiday Bingo card. I did find this one a lot easier to do than the Summer Card. I sort lost enthusiasm for the last one half way through but this one I knew almost immediately what I wanted to read for each square. While my initial plans changed, I did manage to read something for every square (though two squares were books I DNFed).

I created a Goodreads shelf which can be seen here – each book should link to the dates read.
Favourite books of the card this time round – Dead Beautiful, House of Ivy and Sorrow, The Shining, The Stand, If I Should Die, Darkly Dreaming Dexter.
Worst books – Crown of Ice and Talon both DNFed.
Honourable mentions to The Elite and The One which were pretty awful but in spite of the stupidity of the characters I did kind of love them.
