Booklikesopoly Pandemic Edition: 7th roll

No pictures in this update, and also no attempts to include any of Booklikes' links or linking images, because I don't think I could stand the frustration. Plus, I don't want to tempt the site to just time out. Booklikes is still working incredibly slowly for me.


Anyway, I finished How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom, Vol. 1 (374 pages), so that gets me another $3.


Bank: $40

1st roll: 1 + 3 = 4 (Ascendance of a Bookworm, Part 1, Vol. 3, 428 pages, $5)

2nd roll: 4 + 3 = 7 (The Gamekeeper's Lady, 283 pages, $3

3rd roll: 5 + 6 = 11 (The Accidental Demon Slayer, 292 pages, $3)

4th roll: 1 + 4 = 5 (The Saga of Tanya the Evil, Vol. 1, 329 pages, $3)

5th roll: 2 + 4 = 6 (Heart Change by Robin D. Owens, 368 pages, $3)

6th roll: 5 + 1 = 6 (How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom, Vol. 1, 374 pages, $3)


7th roll: 3 + 1 = 4


I was on spot 36. This gets me past GO (earn $5 automatically) and onto to Spot 3, School's Out for Summer. Requirements:


Read a book set in a school or a college, or that is considered a "classic" (any criteria you want), or that is frequently banned.


As much as I like Murderbot, I don't think the series has made its way onto any "classics" lists yet, so once again I can't choose Artificial Condition. I'm honestly not sure what books I own that would both work for this and fit my current mood. Most of the YA I own isn't contemporary-set and might not take place in a school. I could maybe reread M.C.A. Hogarth's Mindtouch, but I'm kind of in the mood for something new. I don't know, I'll have to think about it.
