Filled out the 5 standards, then randomized the rest of the categories to try and challenge myself a bit more.

KISS (Keep It Simple Scoring):
Just going for straight BINGOs.

message 7: by Becky (new)

Becky (beckyofthe19and9) I just made a 5x5 grid on a tab of the sheet I'm using for all of my challenges. :)

Denae (whimsicalmeerkat) | 88 comments Why didn't I think to use Excel for this?!

Good job on the randomization. I didn't think of that. I just made mine somewhat hard.

Emma Colleen, How did you post that box? I have done a word version and an excel but I can't post it in a box format- it just pastes as plain text! How do I convert to an image?

A screenshot would've actually been easier - LOL.

I converted the Word file to PDF and then from PDF to an Image.

For now on, though, I'll be doing a screenshot. Derp.

MrsJoseph *grouchy* (mrsjoseph) | 5312 comments How was murder most unladylike?


message 21: by colleen the convivial curmudgeon, Not a book hipster! (new)

colleen the convivial curmudgeon (blackrose13) | 2976 comments I was underwhelmed by it, sadly.

I do plan on reading the next in the series, and making sure I get ahold of a UK edition, because I'm not sure how much was due to the Americanization of it.

Ugh, I hate that.

colleen the convivial curmudgeon (blackrose13) | 2976 comments Yeah. It wasn't nearly as charming as I expected it to be.

One of the main characters was an annoying bossypants, and the other one has low self-esteem issues and sort of glosses over the casual racism thrown in her direction.

It's set in the 1930s and the narrator is from Hong Kong and I guess the racism is realistic for the time, but it's like it's mentioned and Hazel is annoyed by it, but then it just keeps happening and nothing's really ever done about it.

The narrator also talks about how Daisy, the annoying bossy-boots, is this perfect, beautiful English rose. Blech.

***

ETA: Also Daisy was supposed to be Sherlock-esque, and comes across as pretty much a sociopath. No empathy, no care about other people's feelings, etc... which for some reason seems so much more disturbing in an 11-year-old-girl.

The mystery itself was interesting enough and kept me guessing, but the denouement was really long and, like, everything got explained twice?

colleen the convivial curmudgeon (blackrose13) | 2976 comments I'm doing 2 swaps:

Swapping out "Collection of Stories" for "Woman Author". (I do actually have a collection I'm waiting on from the library, but I'm currently hold position 5, so...)

Also swapping out "Translated" for "White Cover".

If anyone wants to give me a good rec, I'm open for suggestions. Preferably something already on my TBR list. ;) LOL (I was going to do that Robin Hood book you rec'd me recently, MrsJ, but it's not out yet.)

3 Bingos - Working on 2 more!




message 35: by colleen the convivial curmudgeon, Not a book hipster! (new)

colleen the convivial curmudgeon (blackrose13) | 2976 comments Since no friend recs were forthcoming, I'm taking my third and final swap and switching out "Rec'd By Friend" and replacing it with "Set in a Different Country" - which I presume means different country from which I live.





message 36: by MrsJoseph *grouchy*, Bad Girls Deadlift (new)

MrsJoseph *grouchy* (mrsjoseph) | 5312 comments Dude. I rec'd The Belles to you, too.
