This is my third year of Genre Bingo so I keep tweaking it! I like to have some genres I don't normally read but leave off anything I really don't enjoy. Sometimes I think I like the planning more than the reading.

I can see how more experience with this challenge results in more appetizing bingo cards!
Looks like I'll be reading a western this year!

By the way, have you read The Time Traveler's Wife? Do you think categorizing it as Tragedy is too much of a stretch?

I think it would pass as tragedy. Maybe for western you could use something like The Alloy of Law. I had a few I struggled with this year!

Also if you could count free verse for poetry I really liked Yellow Star and it was quite a quick read.

Thank you for the support for The Time Traveler's Wife! *removes the question mark from that prompt. Yay!
As for westerns, sadly, I can't read Sanderson's book because I haven't started the Mistborn Trilogy yet.
Buuuuuuut, Wikipedia describes Stephen King's The Gunslinger (which I'm reading in January) as a mix of genres, including westerns. So, hallelujah!
I'll be reading your poetry rec, Yellow Star. I'm trying to read books that fill prompts across multiple challenges, but that doesn't always work. And Yellow Star sounds like a great read!
I'm afraid to make a master list of all the books I'm "planning" to read next year!
