I joined a reading Facebook group a few months ago. They have fun activities all month long and that helps make reading and choosing books to read a bit more fun. This month one of the activities was Tic-Tac-Toe (or BINGO for people who read a whole lot). I read all nine books on my card and got a blackout.
First I read The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood (book made into a TV show or movie). Three stars (out of five). Then I read Battle Dragons: City of Thieves by Alex London (middle grade). Five stars. Next I read Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding (book that’s between 150-350 pages). Three stars. After that I read Adorkable by Cookie O’Gorman (one word title). Five stars and my first tic-tac-toe.
I started on my second tic-tac-toe with Timebound by Rysa Walker (time in title). Five stars. Then I read The Magic of Christmas Tree Farm by Erin Green (Christmas in title). Four stars. That got me tic-tac-toe number two. I got my third tic-tac-toe with Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han (part of a series). Five stars.
I got tic-tac-toe numbers four and five by reading Girl’s Guide to Witchcraft by Mindy Klasky (about witches). Two stars. Yesterday I completed the whole tic-tac-toe card with a blackout by getting my sixth and seventh tic-tac-toes by reading The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen.
Add in Boy on Ice by John Branch (five stars), A Solitude of Wolverines by Alice Henderson (five stars), and Divergent by Veronica Roth (five stars), plus I finished the Doctrine and Covenants, and that equals November being a pretty awesome reading month!
