Mental Health Book Bingo 🌺

mental health

Hello fellow bookworms 🌺 I decided to join the Mental Health Book Bingo a bit late minute, as I just found out about it and really wanted to do it! One of my aims this year has been to read more mental health books, because it’s a topic that interests me and that I don’t read nearly enough of. Therefore joining this cool book bingo seemed like a great idea, even though I have to learn for my exam at the beginning of February!

You can find the Mental Health Bingo on Twitter and one of the hosts has shared a great recommendation post, so you can get some inspiration for the prompts of the bingo board that I’ve posted down below! This Readathon will take place the entirety of January, which is another reason I choose to do it, as this is a bit more relaxed than a very intense week-long Readathon, giving me more time to get to the books (and avoid studying) 😄

And the Hosts are …

And then here we’ve got the bingo board!

My Mental Health Bingo TBR

This is not a real strict TBR as there’s no way I will get to all of these books, but I wanted to have a bunch of books to choose from as I’ve become more of a mood reader lately, especially when there’s stress! I mainly looked into what books I had and what books were available at my library to determine my TBR and figure out what prompts they fit! I included two rereads as well, that I might get to if I feel like it. Basically, I feel like I have a good collection of books about mental health dealing with several different mental illnesses so I’m not only focusing on one. There are so many more books on my TBR, that I sadly don’t own, but maybe one day I’ll get some of them, as I really, really want to read books about mental illnesses that I have not read a lot about, to get to know them better!

  1. Lol, I just finished an OCD memoir a few days ago! It was eye-opening and made me sympathise with sufferers a little more than before.

    P.S. It’s free to read on if anyone’s interested 😉 The book’s called ‘Obsessed’ by Allison Britz

  4. This is a great idea for a bookish bingo, and definitely a great way to get more people reading more books which highlight mental health issues. I really hope you cross off all the squares for this event Caro, and I really really hope you enjoy all these books too. 🙂 The only one I’ve read myself is Queens of Geek but I loved it, and I’ve heard good things about Under Rose-Tainted Skies so I want to try and get around to that one myself sometime this year.
    Great post, and again good luck with this bookish bingo. 🙂 ❤

    1. I agree, I loved doing the bingo and it made me read a lot more mental health books, which had been a priority for me this month 😊 Queens of Geek is fantastic and Under Rose-Tainted Skies is amazing as well, so I can only highly recommend it 😍 Thank you, Beth!! ❤🌺
