The World at War 2019 reading challenge was hosted by Becky at Becky's Book Reviews.
The format was that of a Bingo card and thus the idea was to complete a line to get a 'bingo'. My final chart looks like this:
Altogether I read 7 books and they were as follows - first the 5 bingo line books from the top righthand corner to the bottom left:
A book focussed on the war: Death in Captivity - Michael Gilbert
A book set in England, Ireland or Scotland: Fire in the Thatch - E.C. Lorac
A fiction book set in the 1920s: Maisie Dobbs - Jacqueline Winspear
A non-fiction book about the 1930s: In the Garden of Beasts - Erik Larson
Any book published 1939 - 1945: Cheerfulness Breaks In - Angela Thirkell
Lastly, the 2 books that were not part of the bingo line:
A book set in Europe: The Tattooist of Auschwitz - Heather Morris
A fiction book set in the 1930s: Weekend at Thrackley - Alan Melville
I thoroughly enjoyed doing this reading challenge, learnt quite a lot, and had fun. Thanks to Becky for hosting.
