Dream Rep Bingo: My Bingo Card

I’ve never taken part in one of these bookish bingos before so I’m curious to see how it’ll go. I found this on twitter:

And I immediately decided to participate & went on to create my bingo card. The general idea of these bingo cards is, I believe, to find books that fit the topics on your card and read those. If you got a row filled, you have bingo! (not that you win anything, it’s just for fun)

My Bingo Card

I decided not to pick very specific tropes combined with IDs but a general diverse factor I’d like to read about. My bingo card was surprisingly hard to fill. Not because I couldn’t think of enough diverse things I wanted to read about, but because I had too many things I wanted to read about. I ended up scrapping a few with a little pain in my heart but came up with this:

The themes(?) in random order: non-binary, anxiety, Hindu, bisexual boy, Jewish, East-Asian, Multiple Personality Disorder, physically disabled, intersexuality, aromantic-asexuality, South-American, bisexual girl, transgender boy, African, transgender girl, Christian, ace, European (not UK), d/Deaf, demi-romantic or gray-romantic, blind, aromantic, Muslim, immigrant, South Asian.

I only count the book if the diverse factor is an important part of the story so if a side-character identifies as any of these but do not have a major role in the story, it doesn’t count.

Some examples that would count (but I’ve already read) are Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman for Anxiety (specifically, social anxiety) and None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio for Intersexuality.

I don’t know how long it’s going to take for me to fill it entirely, but I guess I’ll see! I have some ideas for some of these but for the majority of them, I don’t know any books from the top of my head. So if you have recommendations for any of the squares, please let me know!

  1. Good luck!

    My recs:American Street by Ibi Zoboi for the immigrant square, Borderline by Mishell Baker for the physically disabled square, George by Alex Gino for the trans girl square, The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver for the Christian square, and My Basmati Bat Mitzvah by Paula J. Freedman which could potentially work for the Jewish, Hindu, or South-Asian squares.

    Happy reading!
