Bout of Books 9.0 – Day 1
It’s also day 1 of my new job. I got to read to several classes of young kids and check out some books. It was, I will not deny, pretty awesome. I get to do it again tomorrow, so I’m pretty happy about that.
However, I also had to work the library job and the bookstore job today. And I’m trying to finish up a knitting project, so I’ve been listening to an audiobook as time allows.
I’m also participating in one of the challenges for Bout of Books today.
The first one is Cheap Thrills’ Mad Libs challenge. I decided to do mine Austen-themed:
character name – An Assembly Such as This, Fitzwilliam Darcy #1 by Pamela Aiden
adjective1 – The Bad Miss Bennett by Jean Burnett
adjective2 – Jane and the Wandering Eye by Stephanie Barron
item – Lady Catherine’s Necklace by Joan Aiken
occupation – Becoming Jane by Anne Newgarden
act of violence – The Mislaid Magician by Patricia C. Wrede & Caroline Stevermer
adjective3 – Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis
noun1 – Shades of Milk and Honey by Mary Robinette Kowal
noun2 – Death Comes to Pemerly by P.D. James
I just read the greatest book!
This guy Fitzwilliam ends up in the middle of a bad conspiracy. Turns out his ancestors were pirates, and he might be the key to finding the wandering necklace. It’s a mythic artifact that disappeared centuries ago, and now a shadowy group of becomings are looking for it. No one knows what uncovering it might do, but these guys are willing to mislay for it.
I won’t say anything else. But believe me, if you like incorrigible stories with shades and death, you have to read this one.
