Please explain “fictional language”.

This prompt was inspired by fantasy worlds that often feature a created language like The Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones for example.

Ooo, I am SUPER excited for this month, I am already planning out a couple different paths to a BookishBingo! Hoping this will keep me motivated, as I have been feeling a little down with everything that is going on in these crazy times we are in.

Can you please elaborate on “ bought via indie bookstore website”. Could it be from just a bookstore, or does it specifically have to be from the website? Do people who sell used books on amazon through other sources count?

This is inspired by current events as most independent bookstores have had to close their stores to foot traffic. It’s very specific so you could classify a book you’ve purchased from an indie bookstore or a bookstore’s website if you can’t achieve this prompt.

My first BookishBingo. Some tough prompts for me.:thinking:

Oh, this is fun! My goal is to get through my current TBR list, and I’ve found some books to match up with a bingo row:

  • Two word title: The Deep by Rivers Solomon
  • Reread: Little Nothing by Marisa Silver
  • Pink cover: Those Who Knew by Idra Novey
  • Comfort read: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • Featured on BookishFirst: Goddess in the Machine by Lora Beth Johnson

I used my points to redeem Goddess in the Machine, which I can’t wait to read! I hope it arrives before the end of April, but if it doesn’t then I plan to read The End of the Ocean by Maya Lunde instead.

I am trying to fill in the square “Featured on BookishFirst” and am looking for Children’s books. When I go under “Books” and genre: “Children’s”, there are no entries. Am I not searching the right way? Thanks in advance!

You are searching correctly, however we haven’t had many Children’s books. You can see the Middle Grade and YA books that we’ve featured in their own categories.

It would be really cool if you had a Bookish Jr. or Bookish teen for young readers!

There’s some difficult prompts on here, but I really like these. I like that they reflect what’s going on and also have it so we can support indie bookstores.

Alliteration in the title is a good prompt, but I can’t think of any off the top of my head. I’m so glad I had to read “Call of the Raven” this month because I didn’t have any other books that were published in April. Usually those prompts are the hardest ones for me, because I try to always read new releases.

Just one more prompt to go. Hopefully will get this done in the next few days. Anyone else?

Almost there! Plan on reading Howl and Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg for the ‘poetry or verse novel’ prompt (even though it’d also be a reread for me) and hopefully, if it arrives in time, Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston for the ‘pink cover’ prompt.
Wish me luck!

Congrats on your Bookish Bingo win!

I’m getting closer. 10 hours left in my read-a-thon, so hopefully I can fill a few more boxes.
