Reading Challenge: r/Fantasy Bingo 2021

I’ve been lurking on the Fantasy subreddit for a while now and I want to participate more. One of the community events is the yearly r/fantasy bingo, and I want to participate this year. I didn’t know they release the new bingo on April first, but when it dropped, I ultimately fell for the April Fools joke. Yeah, I’m a sucker. But anyway, they eventually uploaded the real one and was delighted by the squares. Credit goes to u/lrich1024 and others who helped create the bingo. Here’s the link to the post with the bingo card and an explanation.

Here’s my book selection. Most of these books I already own and are on my TBR, which makes the ‘Backlist’ square an easy one. I haven’t taken hard mode or hero mode into account since I wasn’t sure if I could even finish a bingo or the full card just reading what I want/need to. I’ve filled a few of them with books I already had to read for book tours, but I might swap them out later. This list is by no means final. Leave your recommendations for bingo squares below if you have alternatives to the ones I listed!
