SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Summer Book Bingo Update - 7 Read

Yesterday afternoon I finished Georgette Heyer's Sprig Muslin, which is most definitely a road trip, Regency style - abductions, thwarted elopements, highwaymen, and all.

 

So my card now reads:

 

Sun-Sand-Beach Cover / New Author / 1st Book in Series / Movie Made / HF

 

Graphic Novel / Pub. This Summer / Comfort Read / Boat-Tent-Cabin / Mt. TBR

 

Romance / Dead Author / Free Space! / Summer Word in Title / Hard Book

 

Planes-Trains-Road Trip / Mystery / Book Bust or Bummer / Over 400 / Old Fave

 

YA or Kid's / Science Fiction / Read on Vacation / Bad Cover / Fantasy

 

 

And my books read:

 

Sun, Sand, or Beach Cover: The Singer from Memphis, by Gary Corby

New Author: Legacy, by Susan Kay

1st Book in Series: The Aeronaut's Windlass, by Jim Butcher (I can't remember if I reviewed this one - it is the best sort of pulp fiction spree read)

Movie Made: Practical Magic, by Alice Hoffman

Historical Fiction: Journey to Munich, by Jacqueline Winspear

Planes, Trains, or Road Trip: Sprig Muslin, by Georgette Heyer

Mystery: Memory in Death, by J.D. Robb

 

I think my average read this challenge is something close to 4 stars, which is great.
