I am very excited to announce that the Mental Health Book Bingo is back for Round 2! First created in January 2018, I wanted to create a readathon that encourages everyone to read about mental health, particularly about mental health conditions that are less commonly discussed. From January 1st to 31st 2019, we will be reading and talking all things mental health!
But who are we?

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 hashtag #mhbb 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!
I will be putting up a VERY thorough recommendations list for all of the squares, and for the ones that have been repeated from last year, I have my post from last year!
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!
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!
