BL-opoly: Dice Roll #5

U P D A T E D

________________

Today is May 30 was a roll day for me, and having finished my previous book, I am was allowed to roll again.

My first roll turned out to be the smallest of doubles, so I rolled again: 

 

My first roll put me on square 25: The Summer Blockbuster — read a book (standalone or in a series) that has been adopted for film or TV.  Hmm.  Will have to think about that one.  In the interim, my little helpers get another refreshment break … 

Break over.  Decided on Witi Ihimaera’s The Whale Rider.
Read and finished on Friday, May 31.

Length: 152 pages
=> + $2 upon completion

… while I move on to square 33: The European Vacation — read a book set in the UK or by an author whose first or last name begins with any letter in L-O-N-D-O-N.

My last read was very intense, so I need a bit of a change of pace.  Ronald Knox’s first Miles Bredon novel, The Three Taps, is set in England and should do the trick in all respects.  Also finished Friday, May 31.

Length: 192 pages
=> + $2 upon completion

(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 […]
