In which I wait to finish a book that fits a square (Lies Sleeping for urban fantasy) so that I can roll two dice and land on a snake...twice (well the second time I wasn't waiting since I was using up already read books)....then get stuck on a ladder.
I resorted to tracing my recent past in red because it got confusing (starts at square 82 and ends at 68).
1. Author is a woman: Ruler of the Night by David Morrell [1 die = 3]
4. Published in 2019: Graphene by Les Johnson & Joseph E. Meany [1 die = 1]
5. Published in 2018: The World in a Grain by Vince Beiser [2 dice = 8]
13. Author is a man: A Necessary End by Peter Robinson [2 dice = 7]
20. Set in a country that is not your country of residence: A Dedicated Man by Peter Robinson [ladder]
70. Something related to fall/autumn on the cover: The Hanging Valley by Peter Robinson [1 die = 6]
76. Set in a world with magic: Jade City by Fonda Lee [1 die = 6]
80. Main character is a man: The Royal Art of Poison by Eleanor Herman [1 die = 2]
82. Genre: urban fantasy: Lies Sleeping by Ben Aaronovitch [2 dice = 5]
87. Snake - go back to 57
57. Was published more than 50 years ago: Changing Planes by Ursula K Le Guin [1 die = 5]
62. Cover is more than 50% green: "A" is for Alibi by Sue Grafton [2 dice = 3]
65. Snake - go back to 52
52. Has a tree or flower on the cover: Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik (they're tiny but there are trees on the cover) [2 dice = 10]
62. Cover is more than 50% green: The Tropic of Serpents by Marie Brennan [1 die = 6]
68. Something related to weddings on the cover
Um...if you're on a ladder, do you have to read something that fits the square, or can you read any book? Because I'm going to be stuck a long time if I have to read something related to weddings on the cover (too bad I already used Spinning Silver because the coins would have worked).
