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:
We’re calling the personal bingos “Dream Rep Bingos”. Everyone is super welcome to make one and share!

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.
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!
