BL-opoly: Memorial Day Extra Rolls

U P D A T E D
_______________

As per Moonlight Reader’s announcement, we get two Memorial Day Weekend “enhancement” rolls” — yey!

Today is Friday was a roll day for me, so that means I actually get three rolls, but since I already used the first (and as I thought, only) one of these shortly after midnight Friday my time, I have had two rolls left.

As per my earlier roll, I am currently was on square 19, for which I am reading read Margaret Atwood’s Hag-SeedFinished Saturday, May 25.

 

Moving on …

… gets me to the “How” Question Mark (square #26): Science fiction or a book with “How” in the title. 

Hmmm.  I’m going to have to think about that one.  In the interim, my intrepid little assistants are getting a bit of a breather and some refreshments … whenever they can tear themselves away from that book, that is.

 

Refreshment break over:  I settled on Julia Alvarez’s How the Garcia Girls Lost their Accents.
Finished Sunday, May 26.

My second Memorial Day enhancement roll

… takes me to the BookLikes Square (#31)!
So, I get to spin the wheel

… and it turns out I get to move on yet again:

— and as MR’s answer to my respective question says that I am allowed to do this, I am moving to the race car (pocketing $5 for passing “GO” on the way),

then pocketing that card and rolling one more time:

… which finally gets me to another Mountain Cabin square, #16:
A mystery or suspense book or one with all of the letters of C-A-B-I-N in the title.

 And since mysteries and suspense novels are one of my favorite genres, the options for this one are plentiful, so my little assistants are getting yet another refreshment break while I make up my mind which book to read for this one.

 

Second refreshment break almost over, too: For this square I’ll be reading Ellen Wilkinson’s Division Bell Mystery. 
Currently reading.

Halloween Bingo 2021: Card, Spells, Markers and Book Pool

Phew!  I’ve had blog display issues for the better part of August due to a stupid WP plugin acting up (and of course, it was a plugin allegedly intended to “facilitate” the import of content into my chosen theme — haha, right), but luckily they were resolved just in time for Halloween Bingo! (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 […]
