20.6 - Seasoned Reader-Michelle WI's task: My Spring Favorites into Your Summer Read

It has been said before, but it cannot be said enough… the SRC is a great way to find new authors, books and genres! I have found some of my favorite books from the SRC and my Goodreads friends! I like to think that some people have found some great books through my reads as well. If not, then here’s your chance! The following descriptions are based on 6 of my personal favorite books from the Spring Challenge (note: I’m not saying these are all five star books or changed my life, but I really enjoyed them for various reasons.)

Die Roller Please set to 1

Roll the die and read one book based on the number rolled. For each option, you may chose to read the named book OR any other book by that author OR a book with that author's initials (in any order) OR a book with the genre I have listed in parenthesis behind the book (genre MUST appear on the main page of your chosen book) .

1. Bossypants by Tina Fey (humor genre)

2. A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz (fairy tale genre)

3. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs(fantasy genre)

4. Heartsick by Chelsea Cain (thriller genre)

5. The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz (mystery genre)

6. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley (historical fiction genre)

Required: Please state your die roll and the option (book, book by author, initials, genre) when you post

Since it is on the main page, it works!

Thanks Fran! All of those books work for humor (and I'm pretty sure I need to immediately add them to my TBR list.) Happy reading!

Katrina (katmcv) | 457 comments Rolled a 1 and have already read bossypants, I'm thinking I will go for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules as it's listed as humour, hopefully can grab it at the library.

Riya (riyaishere) | 191 comments I rolled a 3. Would this book work for the fantasy genre? The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami


message 13: by Bea (new)

Bea | 4080 comments I rolled a 5. I will read Stone Angel, a Spring SRC mystery that I did not get to read.

That will work as Fantasy appears on the main page under genres.

I really wanted to do the Audiobook as I knew she was the narrator. I'm jealous, have fun!

That's great Meghan... glad my task could be of assistance. I really love the character of Flavia. Enjoy!

 Wendy  UK (wendyuk) | 756 comments When you say a book with the author's initials, do you mean in the title, or an author with the same initials?


message 21: by Michelle (new)

Michelle  (mnmgbwi) | 199 comments I meant it as, another author with the same initials as the one given. Sorry for the confusion!
