The RBG book was the title that jumped out at me the most - I've been getting curiouser and curiouser about her lately. :)

I've sort of been hoping I'd land on this spot since I just got a book about Lincoln last week that looks good. :)

I'm crossing my fingers for your STEM spot AND that you get to hop on this square on your next round.

All solid choices, but RBG wins in my book.

Yeah, RBG it will be...

I´m so looking forward to your thouoghts about The Victorian Chaise-Lounge :).

However, I do hope that I won´t be hitting the time travel square before I have gotten it in the mail ;).

Well, I will find out tonight, which I will probably regret because I am the wrong person to read horror before bedtime. I hope you get it before you land on the time travel square. Although, there is a Victoriana era square, too, somewhere. So, the chances of using this one are good.

I hope it won´t be too scary :).

In case of hitting the Victorian square, I will be reading "Lady Audley´s Secret" by Mary Elizabeth Braddon. It´s about time...
Honestly, I love this game. I´m reading some really great books which have been on my shelves for ages. And I don´t know why I haven´t read them yet.
BrokenTune 1 month ago
Yes, me too. This game is great! I have a good idea of which books will fit which square and I really look forward to reading them. I have several choices for some of squares, too. Like the cars one. Although, one of them will be my holiday read, come what may!

I don´t have the biggest TBR (yet), so for some of the squares I really have to rack my brain.

And I´m not mentioning the incoming Agatha Christie book haul, which is massive. There goes the plan of reducing my TBR-pile ;).

A massive Christie haul? Oh, do tell!
Lillelara 1 month ago
I couldn´t put any more money into my piggy bank, so I had to spend some of the money. Right? I don´t even know how many books exactly are coming ... about 25 or so.
I´m planning on posting about it, so be on the lookout on sunday :).

Oh, wow!!!!
I'll certainly look out for your post.

Oh me too! I can't wait to see your haul post. 25 books incoming... wow! :)
Ooh, that's a Christie I haven't yet read - I believe her only historical mystery. (Set in Ancient Egypt, if I'm not mistaken.)
BrokenTune 1 month ago
Yes, I just started it and it is quite different. :)

Whoohoo that you get to read a Christie! Perfect.

Believe it or not, I had a hard time choosing a book for "Historical Mystery" from the GR listings. Not many of the listed books appealed to me. :(
If you hit this again and can't find something, I could try to think of something; I read a lot of historical mystery.

I think my other option would have been a dip into Elizabeth Peters. which would have been ok, too.
BrokenTune 1 month ago
I was just a little gutted that I had already read Tey's Daughter of Time. :(
Elizabeth Peters would work really well, too.

LoL. If I land on that square again, I'll certainly seek your recommendations.:)

Jail, oh no!

It's cool. I have a Josephine Tey that is due back at the library soon...

Ah, good.
For the time travel - how about Doomsday Book, by Connie Willis?
BrokenTune 2 weeks ago
It looks like an excellent book, but a) I need to be in a mood for time travel (which I'm not), and b) I'm trying to use books that I already have (either on the shelf or on the kindle)...
Hol 2 weeks ago
What about A Wrinkle in Time? That's very short.
BrokenTune 2 weeks ago
Same as SusannaG's suggestion - I'd rather read something that I already have.

I have browsed my kindle, tho, to see what might be a fit (there is positively NOTHING on my physical shelves as time travel is not something I go for...). I'll write a separate post for the ones I've found.
BrokenTune 2 weeks ago
Never mind. While browsing through the kindle I found that I have Making History by Stephen Fry. That's one I actually am looking forward to reading. :D
Char's Horror Corner 2 weeks ago
YAY to finding something you already wanted to read that fits!
BrokenTune 2 weeks ago
It's only Fry novel I have left. :D
Char's Horror Corner 2 weeks ago
I hope you enjoy it!
Hol 2 weeks ago
Oh, I've read that and enjoyed it a lot. Have fun.

Loved The Godfather. I hope you enjoy it too. It has some memorable scenes in it. I told my best friend about this one scene in this book and she immediately said "oh, you mean that and that has happened" and she has read the book about twenty years prior to us talking about it :)

I really look forward to it. I'm reading it with Troy, which will have the added pleasure of lots of comments going back and forth. I have a feeling this will be so much fun.

Oh, that sounds great. Have so much fun, BT. I´m looking forward to your updates :)
