BLopoly Roll 18

July 16th: Seventeenth Roll

Bank Account: $160

Dice Roll: 3 & 4: Adventureland 26: A book tagged adventure or thriller. Picked "Wizard's First Rule", adding $20 for the stunning amount of 836p. (yeah, I didn't know it was that massive when I chose, but it was a quick read)

 

 

July 19th: Eighteenth Roll

Bank Account: $180

Dice Roll: 1 & 3:29: Monorail: involves travel by air, has an airplane on the cover or is set in city with subway. I remember making a mental note about "Around the World in 80 days" last time I landed here. I might read just that.

I liked better than WoT
Wizard's First Rule - Terry Goodkind

This is the good stuff. Epic fantasy with about as much patience with the "wait for the answers while I hint you to death" bullshit as I have, an uninformed protagonist that refuses to carry the idiot ball nonetheless, funny and wise wizard, and heavy hitter female (though I got tired of her "let me die before I hurt you" thing waaay before the end). And of the main villain's three appearances (yeah, neat on the rule), the squicky ruthless first, and his eminently charismatic second were a wonder.

Even better: it is pretty much self contained. We are left a lot of issues to pursue in subsequent volumes, but the adventure we start on we finish (and thank god, given all those pages).

It wont be soon, but I'm likely to keep reading this saga.

BLopoly Roll 17

July 13th: Sixteenth Roll

Bank Account: $141

Dice Roll: 3 & 6: New Orleans 19: tagged horror or Gothic, or is a ghost story. Read "Everything is Eventual" for this, which, with its 608 pages and one multiplier counts for $15.

 

Have to add $4 from my failed Free Friday read of "Handpicked Husband"

 

 

July 16th: Seventeenth Roll

Bank Account: $160

Dice Roll: 3 & 4: Adventureland 26: A book tagged adventure or thriller. I'm between "Wizard's First Rule" and "In Cold Blood". I have a hard-copy of the second on hand, but I've been wanting to read the first for a long time.

Reading progress update: I've read 105 out of 288 pages.
Handpicked Husband - Winnie Griggs

Ok, no.

 

Reading this resourceful gal run roughshod over those three men while trying to get out of the contract might prove fun, but I can't swallow the rage the set up rises in me. This "for the little woman's own good, let's fuck what little freedom she's carving before she can get accustomed to it and never wants to resigns it" fuckery I'm unable to get past.

 

DNF. Over a hundred pages, so I'll claim the $4 and read something else.
