20 Books of Summer / Bingo Update 2

I haven't planned this very well, of course.  I basically have no hope of getting the diagonal until maybe the end of July if I get and read the UK edition of The Hanging Tree, so my best prospect would be to continue with the topmost horizontal (that's where most of my planned reads happen to fall in).  Oh well, I'm still having fun!



The 20 Books of Summer:

1. Romance: Emma by Jane Austen
2. Fantasy: Baba Yaga's Daughter and Other Tales of the Old Races by C. E. Murphy
3. Beach, sand or sun on the cover: Thing Explainer by Randall Munroe
4. First book of a new series: Written in Red by Anne Bishop


In progress:
(A blast from the past: historical fiction): A Bloody Field by Shrewsbury by Edith Pargeter
