I’m doing the 2022 Beat The Backlist Bingo challenge as well this year, and of course I’m going to go for the 52 prompt one as I like to torture myself. xD You can find a full list of backlist titles I’ve read in 2022 here, and this post will only focus on the BTB Bingo books.

So, what has been my process so far? Below the bingo card I will be updating each month as I add more books to it, and afterwards a full list of prompts and the books I’ve read (and a few I’m planning to read).
