Booklikes-opoly! Roll #1

I decided to join in the fun too! And I'm very lucky too as today appears to be a roll day!!

Going over numerous posts, I caved to this game, which is both well thought and a very fun way to tackle our neverending TBRs!

 

A few links first (more for me to keep my posts organized)

General FAQ's

Main Gameplay

Special Squares

And of course the board: 

Dice used found here.

And behold my adorable "pawn":

(I am addicted to these cuties!)

 

Sooooo............

*drum roll*

 

I went with a gif to describe each move as it seemed easier at first - it ended up taking way too much time. The end result was satisfying though, so I might keep it up!

 

Cheers,

-M.

SYNC 2017 - Week 1

AudiobookSync's Eighth Season has finally begun! 

This week's selections are:

 ✒ Keep in mind that the titles are available only within a specific time frame - so hurry!

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde | Read by Greg Wise

Published by Naxos AudioBooks

Oscar Wilde’s enduring masterpiece, this fable of innocence and corruption, purity and decay has become a true classic. The beautiful, narcissistic Dorian Gray, torn between the influence of cynical hedonist Lord Henry Wotton and tortured artist Basil Hallward, sells the beauty of his soul in exchange for external perfection. Ultimately, he cannot escape the disfigurement of sin. Wilde’s remarkable wit and memorable, epigrammatic lines dazzle in audiobook form!

The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich | Read by Charlotte Parry, Christian Coulson

Published by Hachette Audio

Debut author Dawn Kurtagich is dead on in this terrifying psychological thriller!

Over two decades have passed since the fire at Elmbridge High, an inferno that took the lives of five teenagers. Not much was known about the events leading up to the tragedy - only that one student, Carly Johnson, vanished without a trace...

...until a diary is found hidden in the ruins.

But the diary, badly scorched, does not belong to Carly Johnson. It belongs to Kaitlyn Johnson, a girl who shouldn't exist. Who was Kaitlyn? Why did she come out only at night? What is her connection to Carly?

The case has been reopened. Police records are being reexamined: psychiatric reports, video footage, text messages, e-mails.

And the diary.

The diary that paints a much more sinister version of events than was ever made publicly known.

Bookish update - what I read/ February-March-April

It's been a struggle to read anything since this year began. Nothing held my attention. I must have started around ten books and finished none. An endless lists of books before me: review copies, new releases and library copies...

I was overwhelmed.

Until I asked myself what I really wanted to read. The answer was criminal fiction: a page turner that will ignite my reading passion. I turned to one of my favorites - Jeffery Deaver. I had started one of his books back in October (oh yes...) and just couldn't get into it. A trip we took last week presented the perfect reading spot: a 4-hour train ride! The book was really good; expect a review posted soon enough!

 

Apart from that I read a couple of graphic novels: the Morning Glories series and the new Sarah Andersen book. I enjoyed both! (again reviews will soon be up)

On other news, I bought some new books: 

American Gods/Anansi Boys (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics) - Neil Gaiman (audio and a beautiful hardback copy -couldn't resist)

Beartown: A Novel - Fredrik Backman (pre-ordered) 

The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas (audio and kindle)

Dreadnought - April Daniels (kindle)

 

That's all for now! I can't wait to catch up with all of you! 

Happy reading!!
