Random thought but an interactive bingo would be nice where you can tick off you completed a prompt and then fill in the book title. It’s hard sometimes remembering where each book goes :confused: Or maybe it’s me in my old age

Bingo! This month was tough for me.

I was lucky to get what I had.


Here is the opening line from the one I put in the “Hooked you from the opening line” box:

“Contrary to popular theorists, it was not difficult to come by simple household items like soap, food, and weapons after Armageddon hit.”


I uploaded the May Bookish Bingo on May 11th. This new one is different and it upends the progress I’d been making to fill out the squares. What happened? Where is the one I saw before now? Is this a mistake or is there a new bingo presented every week? :frowning:

Hooked you from the opening line - A Forgery of Roses by Jessica S. Olson
Title begins with M - Much Ado About You by Samantha Young
Free Space - Boss Witch by Ann Aguirre
Addresses Mental Health - Ain’t Burned All the Bright by Jason Reynolds and Jason Griffin
Audiobook with an Asian Author and Narrator - The Rise of Kyoshi by F.C. Yee
