My July 4th Booklikes-opoly rolls - updated

Well-Schooled in Murder - Elizabeth  George A Fountain Filled With Blood - Julia Spencer-Fleming Bring Up the Bodies (Thomas Cromwell, #2) - Hilary Mantel The Key to Rebecca - Ken Follett Out of the Deep I Cry - Julia Spencer-Fleming

Today is my roll day, so I'm going to start with my normal roll:

 

 

This takes me to space #4: 

 

Read a book that was published during the months of May, June or July, or that contains an item that would be used as a school supply or an article of clothing or an accessory pictured on the cover.

 

Fortuitously, the next Lynley book, Well-Schooled in Murder, was published in May of 2007! Yippee!

 

First of my extra rolls:

 

 

comes up doubles, and takes me the race car. I put it in my pocket, and roll again!

 

 

which puts me on:

 

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

 

A Fountain Filled With Blood is set in Miller's Kill, NY, a community in the Adirondack mountains, which fulfills this prompt! That's the one book that I am for sure going to read, so that's great that I can fit it in without using one of my novelty cards!

 

Roll for my second extra roll:

 

 

which puts me on:

 

20. Read a book that features a dog or which has a dog on the cover or that is set in an area known for its lakes or on a fictional lake.

 

At this point, I must move onto the next Russ & Clare mystery, called Out of the Deep I Cry, which is set in Millers Kill, in the Adirondacks, and area that is both known for its lakes and which takes place on a lake.

 

My third extra roll:

 

 

Puts me on the BL space, which means that I go to the Wheel Decide:

 

 

which tells me to "read a book that has been on my TBR for more than a year"

 

So many possibilities for this one, including Bring Up the Bodies, which is the sequel to Wolf Hall, and which I bought when it was published back in September, 2012, well over a year ago.

 

and then because I had doubles, I roll again:

 

 

Which puts me on Go, so I collect $5.00 and roll again!

 

 

which takes me around the board, past where I started rolling, to:

 

7. Read a book that has a house on the cover, or that is related to something unique about your community (for example, if your community has a strawberry festival, read a book with strawberries on the cover).

 

 

Playing one of my cat cards - I read The Key to Rebecca by Ken Follett.
