Suggest a Bookish Bingo Prompt!

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.

Suggestions for May prompt:
A book that has been on your TBR list the longest.
A book title beginning with the letter M
First book in a series


Some suggestions for May:

— I second the suggestion for a book based on a Mother character.
— A book with a medical professional as a main character.
— A book about travel (this might help us hope for the future … … … or be a nightmare that we can be glad we are avoiding!)
— A book celebrating Memorial Day/beginning of the summer season.
— As libraries remain closed, another pleas for any wild card book around the house that we can scrounge up!

Yet Another Prompt Suggestion:

Why not select a state and then use any book in/about that state? This would take care of a prompt category for the next 50 months!

May’s Bookish Bingo board is here and you’ll see many of your suggests have made it onto the board: May Bookish Bingo 🌞


Idea: A title that starts with the first letter of your name
Ex. My name is Chelsea so I could read City of Bones to complete the prompt.


Another Idea: A book that was gifted to you
