BL: Lucky Day
Jinx High - Mercedes Lackey

 

 

 

I really enjoyed this series.

Urban Fantasy(?) before it was a thing I suppose.

Diana Tregard is the most realistic witch I have read about.

 

 

This was a convoluted way to get a book read, so, I hope I did it right.  LOL

I landed on BL, so rolled for my task, which was task 6. It's your lucky day! Read any book for your next turn regardless of the task instructions!

So I rolled AGAIN after the 2 day wait. 

Whew!

Fingersmith: 56%.
Fingersmith - Juanita McMahon,Sarah Waters

It is amazing to me that at one time, "doctors" genuinely believed that providing a woman with an education and allowing her to read novels could cause insanity. And given the state of mental health care at the time, I think I'd have rather pretended to be stupid and uninformed than to be permanently committed to an insane asylum.

Booklikes-opoly + Long weekend

I've just heard about the extra rolls because of the long weekend. It's not a long weekend here, but extra rolls are always welcome :)

 

I hope you all had/are having a great long weekend!

 

I'm currently on New Orleans Square 19 and reading Feed for this spot.

 

Let's roll then!

 

Extra roll #1

 

 

 

So I roll the dice again. I got 3, which is an odd number, which sent me to the WaterWorks

 

 

For this, I have to read a book with water on the cover or where someone turns on the water work because of an emotional event. For this, I will read After You - Jojo Moyes  . Well, I can't be sure someone will cry, but I'm almost certain of it...

 

Extra roll #2

 

 

 

 

 

For this I will read Warcross - Marie Lu   . I've been approuved for this on NetGalley for over a week now and I am SO excited to finally have the opportuniy to read it.

Shane: 91/432 pg
Shane: The Critical Edition - Jack Schaefer

There were sharp hidden hardnesses in him. But these were not for us. He was dangerous as mother had said. But not to us as father too had said. And he was no longer a stranger. He was a man like father in whom a boy could believe in the simple knowing that what was beyond comprehension was still clean and solid and right.

Fortune Like the Moon by Alys Clare
Fortune like the Moon - Alys Clare

Richard I is worried about the fallout from his mother’s decision to release all the prisoners to commemorate the start of his reign when a nun is found brutally murdered, so he sends Josse d’Acquin to investigate at Hawkenlye.

 

I quite liked this mystery, there were several clever reversals, and it was the Abbess Helewise who solved the murder! Don’t worry, that’s only a very mild spoiler. I won’t tell you who actually did it. I wasn’t sure about some of the historical details that the story relied on and I could have done without the very last chapter (it provided a resolution that I could have done without), so I’m going with 3.5 stars despite dithering about 4. I do plan on looking into the next one in the series, however.

 

I read this for booklikes-opoly square Frontierland 1 “Read a book with a title that starts with any letter in FRONTIER”.  At 256 pages, this nets me another $3 for my bank, bringing my balance to $98!
