Bingo Blackout Completed!
Bingo Blackout Completed!

Did some shameless shuffling around.  Still a good dozen books that don't fit in here.  :D

 

Beach, sand, or sun on the cover: The Rumor / Elin Hilderbrand

 

New to you author: American Housewife: Stories / Helen Ellis

 

First book of a new series: Rock Me Two Times / Dawn Ryder

 

Adapted for the big screen: The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History / Robert M. Edsel

 

A blast from the past: Historical Fiction: How the Duke Was Won / Lenora Bell

 

Graphic novel or comic book: The Sculptor / Scott McCloud

 

Published June, July, or August 2016: The Nightmare Stacks (A Laundry Files Novel) / Charles Stross

 

Comfort Read: Wrong Place, Right Time / Elle Casey

 

Read in a boat, tent, or cabin: A Head Full of Ghosts / Paul Tremblay

(partially, at least)

 

A book that's been on your shelf for more than a year: Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore / Robin Sloan

 

Romance:Test Drive / Marie Harte

 

A book by a dead author: The Fellowship of the Ring / J.R.R. Tolkien (ok, been reading this one for awhile, but with the format of the project, I think it counts)

 

Free space: Her Smoke Rose Up Forever / James Tiptree Jr

(also a contender for "book by dead author")

 

Summer word in the title: This One Summer / Jillian Tamaki & Mariko Tamaki

 

A hard book: Wild / Cheryl Strayed (emotionally this was a very challenging book for me)

 

Travel: planes, trains, or road trips: No Simple Highway: A Cultural History of the Grateful Dead / Peter Richardson

 

Mystery or Suspense: Hex / Thomas Olde Heuvelt

 

A book bust or bummer: Star Wars: Aftermath / Chuck Wendig

 

More than 400 pages long: The Aeronaut's Windlass / Jim Butcher

 

Favorite re-read: The Princess Bride / William Goldman

 

YA or Children: Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong / Faith Erin Hicks & Prudence Shen

 

Space opera or other sci fi: The Nightmare Stacks / Charles Stross

 

Read on vacation: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child / J. K. Rowling
(I don't really get vacations, but I read this on my day off)

 

Book with a terrible cover: Rhapsody / Elizabeth Haydon

(It's not horribly terrible, but a bunch of things bother me - including the scale of the characters, and they add up to being dissatisfied with the cover.  Possible alternative for cover is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, on which the woman just doesn't work for me, and then they cut off her head... the reason this book is an alternative instead of Wrong Place, Right Time is I got far more enjoyment out of Wrong Place, Right Time).

 

Fantasy: From a High Tower (Elemental Masters) / Mercedes Lackey
