While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction.

The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

Booklikes-opoly Update - Rolls 4 & 5

 

 

DATE: May 15th 

Bank Account: $36

 

I made rolls 5-7 on April 30th as part of the Dewey's Readathon bonanza. I was too busy at work to read much in the last 2 weeks, but a quick jaunt to TX for a cousin's Bar Mitzvah meant time to read on the plane.  

 

Roll #: 4

Lands on: Cars Land 18 - Read a book published in 2006, 2011, 2013 or 2014 or that has a car on the cover

 

It's been a while since I've read any Chik Lit like the Elm Creek Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini and I've been wanted to change up genres recently. I selected Fast Women in part due to Murder By Death's recent review and because the cover matched the square

 

  

 

Fast Women wasn't bad, but it was not entirely to my taste. I don't feel compelled to seek out other books by Jennifer Crusie. 

 

 

 

Roll #: 5 

 

Lands on: New Orleans 21 - Read a book set on an island or that has water on the cover

 

Salt to the Sea - Ruta Sepetys 

 

 

As described in my previous post, I read Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys.  I was compelled by the story, but the tragic topic doesn't lead to swoonlike responses. 

 

I have selections picked out for the other 2 Dewey's Bonus Rolls, including one that I'm very  much looking forward to, so I won't be rolling again quite yet.
