Books on the Nightstand Summer Book Bingo 2015

Good afternoon readers, hope you enjoyed the lovely posts here today. I found this post from Savage Reads, a blog that I truly enjoy reading, and thought I would create my own. The idea is that sometimes we get into a bit of a rut when it comes to the books that we read, and reviewing extensively books that are sent to me I often end up reading the same things over and over again. However, what about those books we may never end up reading let alone enjoying if we don’t step back and starting reading something a little different.

As Simon puts it,

‘The lovely hosts of Books on the Nightstand podcast, Ann and Michael, have come up with over 140 possibly categories for you which form a bingo card that you can work through, getting a line or full house, and base your reading around over the summer months.

All you have to do to create your own, because I know you are desperate to and why not its super fun, isย press on this link hereย and it should generate a bingo card for you.’

and here is my bingo scratch card! It’s quite an interesting set of books. Some are going to be quite easy, I think the pseudonym one might finally get me to read The Silk Worm by Robert Galbraith (aka J K Rowling) and I adore reading novellas, but Nonfiction about your home-town and sport-related do not fill with me anticipation to say the least. Saying that I think it could have been a hell of a lot worse. We shall have to see whether I manage it but I’m hoping it sets me on a bookish-adventure. I’ll keep you informed as I go along, and if you have any suggestions please let me know!

    I love the bingo card! I think I might be able to fill most of it already but not if you are talking about just this year. I will have to look for one with only words on the cover, one set in Australia (maybe), and one with a red cover, I think. That is on yours, though. The card I pulled up is quite a different story!

    My favorite Novella was called “Monument”, though I loved the condensed version I read in a magazine better. Another one I liked was called “Petals of Rose”. Both of these are likely out of print, though.

    If you are looking for a science fiction book for your card, we at Bent Briar Publishing have an ARC we would like reviewed. It is called The Candy Store by Michele Poague. The book is set for release the first week of August but we are currently looking for reviews we can use on the back cover of the book. However, we want honest reviews. Below is a description of the story.

    “A young orphan, hiding from the law and a biker gang, finds the perfect job working in a candy until the day tragedy strikes and the 16 year old finds herself in a strange new world where even her speech might lead her to be locked away forever.”

    This is a time travel book with most of the tale set in the 1920’s. Michele has taken a great deal of care to ensure the speech patterns and actions of the day are authentic. As with her other novels, her characters are robust and her descriptions place the reader completely in the scene.

    If you have time to read and review the book, I can be reached at BetteRose at aol dot com.
