Hooked on Books

Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece

Summer Book Bingo -Update 11, 12, 13 & 14

— feeling terminator

I'm a little behind on my updates but I've got 4 more squares completed &

I'm calling a second bingo diagonal-

BINGO!!! : )


For my 'Beach, Sand or Sun on Cover' square,

I chose Nevada Barr's Boar Island- It has a really pretty picture

of the ocean where it meets the island 


For my 'Published June, July or August' square,

I chose Harry Farthing's Summit- 

It was published June 14, 2016


For my 'First Book of a New Series' square,

I read J.N. Chaney's The Amber Project-

It is the first book in his Variant Saga series 


For my 'Summer Word in the Title' square,

I read Rick Campbell's Ice Station Nautilus-

Nautilus means 'sailor' & also 'octopus/mollusk'

both definitions I associate with summer & the ocean 


 I think next I'm going for-

'A Book that's Been on Your Shelf for Over a Year'

& ' A Book by a Dead Author' squares
