Booklikes-opoly 2020 - Post #1

Not sure how far I'll get, but I'm giving it a go!

 

 

(I'm using the 'stack of books' marker that I used for Snakes and Ladders again.)

 

Bank account: $20.00

 

I rolled the dice, and this was the result:

 

 

That put me on space 8:

 

 

So, I get to save this card and then roll again. Which I did:

 

 

Which put me here:

 

 

I'm going with Creation in Death by J.D. Robb.

 

Cards in reserve for later use:

Booklikes-opoly 2020; Pandemic edition / audit update #1

Given that I'm already behind on posts, it seems my decision to audit was a good one. After finishing Amethyst Dreams for square 6, I rolled a 7 and landed on the Robot square. I made a note of it on my RL board, and rolled again, getting aand landing on a Chance square:

 

  

I decided on Why Shoot a Butler? because I wasn't in the mood for non-fiction, and it was on my TBR.  Which it shouldn't have been, because I'd already read it, but never mind, I enjoyed reading it again.

 

Rolling again, I got a 5 and landed on the Cat Square, made a note and rolled again, getting a 6, which landed me on space 27.  For this one, I"m going to do a re-read again, but this time on purpose.  I'm choosing the anthology from Jimmy Buffet, Tales from Margaritaville, which feature a short story called Take Another Road, about a man named Tully Mars; it's definitely a tale of a hero's journey - if a somewhat eccentric one.

Why Shoot a Butler?
Why Shoot A Butler? - Georgette Heyer

An accidental re-read, but an enjoyable one.  As I started reading it, I remembered my frustration the first time around with the slow, purposefully vague start, but once into it, I enjoyed the banter and the mystery again - and had no recollection as to whodunnit.

Amethyst Dreams
Amethyst Dreams - Phyllis A. Whitney

Like a lot of other authors who write romantic suspense, Whitney was very hit and miss.  Most of the misses I've read are the ones she wrote in her later years, and this isn't an exception.  The woman could still write well - her island setting came alive - but the plot was soft and sentimental, and the resolution was not a resolution at all.  In fact it was completely unrealistic, unless the poor dead woman meant less than nothing to her family.
