BL-opoly: Dice Roll #21 & Scottie Dog: Please pick my next book!

Well, I’m not sure what I’ve just read (John Le Carré’s A Small Town in Germany certainly hasn’t aged very well, generally speaking, though in some parts it’s eerily prescient); anyway, having finished it, I’m allowed to roll again.

This takes me to square 10: Beach Week — read a book that appears on any beach reads list or whose author’s first or last name begins with any letter in B-E-A-C-H.

Since it’s also time to start using the novelty cards I am holding, I’ll use one of my two Scottie Dog cards and ask you guys which book I should read next:

  1. Gertrude Bell: A Woman in Arabia
  2. Joy Ellis: The Guilty Ones
  3. Renée Ahdieh: The Wrath and the Dawn
  4. Sara Collins: The Confessions of Frannie Langton

Since I have a few other books going that I’d also like to make progress with, I’m going to leave this open until tonight, possibly tomorrow morning.

(Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
