BL-opoly: Dice Roll #16
Good Omens - Terry Pratchett,Neil Gaiman,Martin Jarvis

It's past midnight CEST, so having finished J,K. Rowling's Casual Vacancy, I am allowed to roll again

 

 

This takes me to square 15: Mountain Cabin -- read a book with a tree on the cover or featuring a character who is a father.

 

I decided to go for, um, the ultimate fatherhood tale, which I suddenly have a desire to revisit to fill the hole left by its screen adaptation (for however addictive that one might be, for all the right and wrong reasons).

 

Length: 413 pages

=> + $5 upon completion.

7/14/19 Roll 17:

2 4

15. Read a book with a tree (or trees) on the cover, or that is set in a mountain community.

 

Book: The Ancient Magus' Bride: The Silver Yarn - Kore Yamazaki  I need to return this to the library soon, so getting this square is perfect since The Silver Yarn has trees on the cover.

The Body Lies - Jo Baker

Reading this one outside of Booklikesopoly (I really fancied a literary thriller), so it'll be even longer until I get another roll :)
