April is Autism Awareness Month and I think a character on the Autism Spectrum would be a great prompt!

Ex: House Rules : Jodie Picoult
The Kiss Quotient or The Bride Test : Helen Hoang
Miracle Creek : Angie Kim


There’s the classic rhyme April Showers bring May Flowers, so maybe a book that involves water in the name or cover to represent April Showers.


A book by an author that lives in your state.
A book by an author that died in the past two years.
A book with a two word title.


A book that takes place in Italy! (a small shutout to the country most coronavirus-crippled)

Any book that can be scrounged up (it’s getting more difficult with the libraries temporarily closing!)

A book about travel!


A book with a pandemic theme.

Hi. How about a character with epilepsy? (I hope nobody chose this already) I will think of something else if they had.

Thank you for your fantastic suggestion! We’ve included it on the April board here: April Bookish Bingo 💐

This is such a fun prompt! We added it to April’s board: April Bookish Bingo 💐

You’ll see a prompt with Rain on the cover that we added from your inspiration! May will have the same prompt but Flowers :slight_smile: April Bookish Bingo 💐

Thanks for several great ideas! We added Two Word Title to April’s board, but we’ll keep the others in mind for future months April Bookish Bingo 💐

We loved your suggestions and added a book set in Italy as one of the April Bookish Bingo 💐 prompts!

Okay I have a few possibilites for May:

*There is National Space and National Star Wars Day so maybe read a syfy

  • Mother’s Day falls in May so maybe read a book with a mother as the protagonist
    *May is National Mental Health Awareness so maybe read a book dealing with mental health

Then there’s random ones like:
*Read a book out of your comfort zone

  • Read a book that makes you think of spring

Pandemic or sickness themed book! :mask:

There’s Cinco de Mayo, so maybe something Mexican in origin. Then there’s Memorial Day, so having to do with the military?

And since ‘Rain on the cover’ was a space for April, it would make sense to have ‘Flowers on the cover’ for May.
