Annie | 8 comments Here's a new challenge for everyone! The Ripped Bodice, our favorite romance bookstore, has a summer bingo and I'm getting stumped on some of them, so I thought I'd share it to get ideas. It's technically just for the summer, but I'll probably end up working on it for the rest of the year. Also, it is a romance challenge, but there's nothing stopping anyone from using it for general inspiration (I'll probably stick to romance until I get stuck).

I might use some artistic license on the Baby on the Cover category and pick a book with a puppy or kitten on the cover. Hey, baby animals are still BABIES. :D

I used The Princess Bride for Heroine's Eyes are Described Using the Ocean, when really it's Wesley's eyes that are describes as being like the sea before a storm. Heroine, Hero - same diff.

That makes me feel better, I fudged a couple of mine too. My Forced Proximity is a hoarder house and Smells like Man is heroine realizing she prefers masculine war hero to foppish types.

I only have TWO MORE SPACES and then I'm DONE, BLACKOUT guys! I'm not loving my choice for YA Paranormal, but it's also ticking some boxes for #ARCAugust bingo so *shrug*

For Baby on the Cover I saw someone else post that they picked a book with "baby" in the title, so the "baby" on the cover is literally the word "baby," and I'm going with it. I also bought an ebook of Must Love Babies if I feel like I need to Be Better.
