May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor: May Bookish Bingo

book bingo

Ready for a new reading challenge? Join May Bookish Bingo! As Effie Trinket would say, may the odds be ever in your favor, reader.

Here are the rules:

—Each book you read can only be used for a single square on the board.

—Each prompt is open to your interpretation.

—To score a bingo, you must complete a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row of squares

To score a bingo, you’ll need to read at least four books this May, and we have no doubt you’re up to the task. To help, we’ve given you a head start with a free square in the center and if you need some inspiration, look beneath the board for our recommendations for each prompt.

Download your Bookish bingo card below and make sure you share your progress with us by using #BookishBingo on social media.
