Still Alive / Reading Bingo

I'm still here! Let's just say that my first semester teaching was one long, busy whirlwind, but I'm finally getting the hang of things. Since the year is almost over, let's see how I'm doing on Reading Bingo!

YA first:

Shadow and Bone: A book with a female heroine;
Before I Fall: A book set in a high school;
Allegiant: The last book of a trilogy;
The Silver Chair: A book with a colour in the title;
The Summoning: The first book in a series;
The Registry: A book set in the future;
An Abundance of Katherines: A book with a break up (understatement);
Legend: A book without a love triangle;
If I Stay: A book that became a movie;
A Corner of the Universe: A book set in the past.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: A book with magic.
The Moon and More: A book set in the summer;
A Light in the Attic: A book with a dragon;
We Were Liars: A book that made you cry;
Sabriel: A book based on a myth;
Alanna The First Adventure: A "Classic" YA Book;
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe: A book with a lion, a witch, or a wardrobe;
Maze Runner: A book with an incredible fight scene;
This Is How I Find Her: A book you heard about online;
Sea of Shadows: A book set in another world;
The Reckoning: A book with an epic love story;
Delirium: A book with music;

It looks like I just need to read a graphic novel and a book set in Paris in the next, oh, 8 days in order to black out this board.

All genres:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: A book with more than 500 pages; (A few others were 
          close. Feeling Good is over 700 pages, but I don't know if I'll finish before the year 
The Whipping Boy: A forgotten classic;
Divergent: A book that became a movie;
We Were Liars: A book published this year;
The Fundamental Five: A book with a number in the title;
Legend: A book written by someone under thirty;
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe: A book with non-human characters;
A Light in the Attic: A funny book;
Sea of Shadows: A book by a female author;
The Maze Runner: A book with a mystery;
Allegiant: A book with a one-word title;
Shards and Ashes: A book of short stories;
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: A book set on a different continent;
Plot versus Character: A book of non fiction;
Before I Fall: The first book by a favorite author;
The First 50 Pages: A book you heard about online;
Delirium: A best-selling book;
Shiloh: A book based on a true story;
Sabriel: A book at the bottom of your to be read pile; (A lesson in not judging a book by it's 
          cover, because said book was awesome). 
Alanna The First Adventure: A book your friend loves;
The Handmaid's Tale: A book that scares you. 
A Corner of the Universe: A book that is more than 10 years old;
The Awakening: The second book in a series;
Wintergirls: A book with a blue cover;

Got all of these!

This was a good reading year for me. I read 61 books, and I'm about to finish 2 more. If you add the graphic novel and book set in Paris, that will be 65 books read this year total. Much better than my 52 book goal. Maybe I'll aim for 70 in 2015?

A list of my favorites is soon to come, as well as a list of books that were sent to the graveyard :/.
