2022 Mystery Genre Bingo

mystery genre bingo

Welcome to the Mystery Genre Bingo challenge!

This reading challenge focuses on mysteries and thrillers. The idea is to create a bingo card with a variety of mystery subgenres and make as many “bingos” as you want. You can set a goal to get one bingo, completely fill in the bingo card, or something in between.

The 2022 Mystery Genre Bingo challenge has 25 prompts. This is a great challenge for readers who enjoy mysteries.

I love to read mysteries, so my goal is to fill in a bingo card. My card for this year is posted below. I will update this post as I work on this year’s challenge. Please comment below with your challenge goals. Good luck and happy reading!
