I am so happy to help promote the Mental Health BookBingo and Challenge for January. To bring awareness to different books featuring mental health representation. I am constantly inspired by Laura (@bbliophile) and so I first started actively trying to read more diverse mental health rep because of her recommendations. Let’s talk bingo boards, features, and hosts!
Ayah Assem @DystopianCitzn
The bingo is a 5×5 grid where you read prompts for at least one line – this can be horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Please post under the #MHBookBingo so we can see your progress and cheer you on! We’ve also got a Twitter for the bingo which is @BingoMh.
The books do not have to be own voices, but they are always encouraged!
There will also be a GROUP READ this year – we will be posting a poll in the next couple of days to decide what book it is going to be!
Am I Normal Yet – OCD
Made You Up – YA with MI
Girls at 17 Swann Street – eating disorder
The Princess Saves Herself in This One – poetry with MI
Weight of Sky – POC with MI
I also want to recommend:
We haven’t finalised the schedule yet, but there will be:
- Author chats
- Reading sprints
- Instagram challenges
- Twitter chats (the first will be on Saturday the 5th of January, time TBC!)
Follow our Twitter for updates!
