I was on spot 25, so this puts me on spot 30, the Summer Romance.


Read a book with fruit or pastries on the cover or that was written by an author whose first or last name begins with any letter in LOVE.


Okay, this game is definitely messing with me. Once again, there's no way I can fit a Murderbot book into this.


It's quite possible that I have a book somewhere in my collection that fits the first requirement, but the second one is quicker and easier to work with, so I'll probably go with something that fits that.


I could do a reread (one of Fuyumi Ono's Twelve Kingdoms books) or something new. I'm leaning towards new. Some possibilities:


- Masquerade and the Nameless Women by Eiji Mikage

- The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord

- One of Lois McMaster Bujould's Vorkosigan books (I've read a couple and enjoyed them)

- Sword Dancer by Jeannie Lin

- Velocity Weapon by Megan E. O'Keefe


And that's just the stuff I can see in the closest bookcase, without moving anything around.
