2021 Mystery Genre Bingo

2021 Mystery Genre Bingo

The 2021 Mystery Genre Bingo challenge is new! In the past, I participated in a Genre Bingo reading challenge in a group on Goodreads (2018, 2019, and 2020). The idea was to create a bingo card with a variety of genres and make as many “bingos” as you wanted for the challenge.

I love mysteries, so I thought I would make a bingo card that focused on mysteries and thrillers. While I have enjoyed the variety of genres in the past, this year I want to focus on reading mysteries. By altering the challenge a little, I get the fun of bingo and read lots of mysteries.

The 2021 Mystery Genre Bingo challenge has 25 prompts. I like a challenge, so I hope to read a book for each prompt.
