My KYD Reads … or: Harry Potter, and What Else I read in March 2018

A big thank you to Moonlight Reader for yet another fun, inventive BookLikes game!  I had a wonderful time, while also advancing — though with decidedly fewer new reads than I’d origianlly been planning — my two main reading goals for this year (classic crime fiction and books written by women).   Harry Potter – […]

KYD Green Round: Crime Scene Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Robert Harris’s Imperium has white lettering (and the lower part of the cover is black).  In addition, the holders of Ancient Rome’s public offices — including this book’s protagonist, Marcus Tullius Cicero — had to organize a variety of games to entertain the citizens, so the words “game” and “games” appear repeatedly throughout the […]

KYD Green Round: Crime Scene Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Maycomb County Courthouse: the crime scene that would fit most obviously with our game’s murderer (and unlike her own characters as victims, it’s not off limits to her per se).   Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is genre YA and features two characters who are fathers — Mr. Weasley and Mr. Diggory […]

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Well, we still have one victim to guess and since it’s the victim of the very first murder it can’t be Katniss Everdene (the only other theoretically remaining option), since she was expressly excluded in the game’s first round.   Walter Mosley’s Red Death, which I finished a few days ago, is genre crime […]

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Lydia Bennet can’t possibly die too many literary deaths, so I kind of hope she’s a victim in our round as well.  (Mean streak — me?)   Margaret Drabble’s The Red Queen contains an extremely annoying POV character in its second part — who also happens to do more than her fair share of […]

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Since Agatha Christie has recently been observed visiting Scotland Yard (and we know she’s not the suspect), I think it just might be possible she’s been asked to identify one of the victims as Mrs. Oliver.  Of course, the identification might have come out as a negative, but then again … it might not.  […]

KYD Green Round: Suspect Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Finished Dorothy L. Sayers’s Unnatural Death over the weekend and decided to use it for a Stephen King suspect guess (a book by an author whose [last] name begins with “S”). Original post: ThemisAthena.booklikes.com/post/1650152/kyd-green-round-suspect-card-guess-team-mbd-lillelara-ta

KYD Green Round: Suspect Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Obviously, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ticks off all three tasks associated with this particular suspect card … 🙂 Original post: ThemisAthena.booklikes.com/post/1649466/kyd-green-round-suspect-card-guess-team-mbd-lillelara-ta

KYD Green Round: Crime Scene Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets matches at least 2 of the tasks for the Planet Camazotz” crime scene card: “set in a different dimension of this world” and “published between 1918 and 2007”.  If you award an “assist” to Hermione Granger for, inter alia, stealing the recipe for and concocting the polyjuice […]

KYD Green Round: Crime Scene Card Guess – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

  Phew.  [TA wipes sweating brows.]  Finished this one with just over a half hour to spare until the end of this round.   Anyway, the cover of a book virtually drenched in green (both in the paperback and the audiobook version — and yes, I switched back and forth between both) is way too […]

KYD Green Round: Crime Scene Card Claim – Team MbD / Lillelara / TA

Since I was already fairly far advanced in the book I’d been reading / listening to for this card when Nighttime Reading Center posted her guess (congrats again on getting there first! 🙂 ), the team agreed I’d just finish my book and claim the card for the points awarded for a crime scene already […]
