Roll Dice

Monopoly Rules

• You do not need to wait for the other player to finish reading before you take your next turn. As soon as you're done reading, go ahead and roll.
• Each property is represented by a shelf. For each grouping of shelves/properties you would read a certain amount of books from that shelf. Once you finish the amount of books you would then “Own” that shelf.
• If you land on an “owned” shelf you would have to read a certain amount of books above what the owner had to read.
• If one person “owns” all of the books in a group (think Mediterranean and Baltic) and another player lands on their properties they would be able to recommend at least one of the books that the player has to read.
Utilities – For the Electric Company – Read a book where the characters have electric chemistry. For Water Works – Read a book that makes you cry. Books have to be 150 pages or more.
• If a player lands on an “Owned” utility, then the owner will recommend a book with electric chemistry or that makes them cry.
Railroads – For Reading Railroad – Read whatever you want. For Pennsylvania Railroad – Read a book set in Pennsylvania. For B&O Railroad – Read a book that someone else thought stunk. For Short Line – Read a novella. Page minimum 150 for all but Short Line. 25 page minimum for the novella.
• If a player lands on an “owned” railroad, the owner will recommend a book for that specific railroad.
Chance and Community Chest – there are 12 cards for each. If a player lands on one of those spots they will roll the dice a second time and then would “pull” the corresponding card and do whatever it says on the card. Once a card is used, it will be out of play unless needed to finish the game. Books for this would need to be at least 150 pages.
Being in Jail – To get out of jail you would need to have one of the get out of jail free cards, roll doubles on one of your next three turns or read a book where a character is arrested or has been in jail. Books for this would need to be 150 pages or more.
Just Visiting – Read a novella of your choice, 50 page minimum
Free Parking – Read any book 100 pages or more
Go – Read any book of 200 pages or more
Luxury Tax/Income Tax – Read a book with a rich character, a really poor character or someone that works in a bank. 150 pages or more
• Each roll, you'll post your starting spot, the roll and your new spot on the board.
• When you finish your book you'll post the spot your on, book name, rating, when it was finished and a short review of the book. If you were supposed to read a book that had a specific element (water works utility, book that made you cry), then please mention that in the review.
• Re-reads are allowed.

Read: 6/12/16
Rate: 5 stars
Review: This is the 4th book in the unfortunate events. This time the children are sent to a mill to work til they get to a certain age. Like the first three books, Count Olaf tries anything that he can to get the children's fortune, but like the first three books, he gets caught by the children and the banker and he always escapes. Hopefully, he will really get caught in the next book.

Review:
I loved this book since its similar to real life situations. Sometimes we make big mistakes and just person who cares very much about you can forgive them. It showed me that true love can overcome anything if needed.

Henry VIII's Wives The Story of Henry's six queens by Alison Prince
Task: Read a book where characters are imprisoned
How it fits: Henry imprisoned many wives/subjects/randoms
Date read: 18/6/16
Rating: 4 stars

Review: I'm glad I finally read this one :) I've owned it for a while, and have been meaning to read it. I thought it was actually a compilation of three littler books, but to find out it was it's own whole story is awesome :D And rather educational too, about Henry VIII's six wives: Catherine of Aragon, Katherine Howard, Katherine Parr, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves and Anne Boleyn. So many Katherine's and Anne's! I would be incredibly scared if I was one of Henry's wives, and if any I'd prefer to be Catherine, his first. I can't believe he would kill 4 of them, and then claim to have loved them, while still finding a new wife so soon. I liked the POV, as she wasn't really a lady-in-waiting, more of just a court lady. And I'm so pleased that she and Will got married :) Sad about the miscarriage, but surprising that her friend Kitty had like 4 consecutive children. Also that she was like 14/15 when she got pregnant the first time? That's so crazy, thinking that by my age (18) I would have at least one child. Such a different world we live in.

Review:
My friend said that this book is worth reading so I gave it a shot and I dont regret it. The storyline was great. Once I started reading I couldnt put it down. Before this book I didnt really like paranormal stuff such as vampires, werewolves, ect. But this book changed my views. Its one of my favorite books now.

Rating: 3 stars
Read: 19/6/16
Task: Read a book with a B author
Task: Author Jean Bennett

Review: This was a quick read. Interesting to read about the history of my country 80 years ago. Seems like such a hard life, even though it's not the worst I've read. Can't imagine being scared of earthquakes and avalanches all the time, and getting no sun during the winter. Or of freezing so much with only thin little blankets in the middle of winter. Really glad that Angela and the mum were okay throughout the pregnancy.

How it fits: Authors name is Amy
Review:
The first why I read this book is because I love sports. I came across baseball not long ago since I live in Lithuania where baseball is rare. I liked this book since its about romance. I liked the heroine. She was a little bit a naive, but very much. I think she didnt make mistake by leaving ex. But I was happy thag they came together. It shows that true love does exist and if one wants to be happy he or she has to fight for it.

I need to read another one to own this property

Review
I read this book because my friend recommended it. It was sweet road-trip romance book. Bonnie and Clyde two sad people meet in unsual situation. They met on bridge when Bonnie was thinking of jumping from it but is stopped by Clyde and then their trip to Vegas began. I gave it three stars because it was well written but just not my type of book.
