Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

BookLikes-opoly: Turn 4 (April 23)

Today I rolled:


Which takes me to:



It was also a double, so I get to roll again and I ended up with:


Which leaves me wondering about the randomness or Random.org's dice because I seem to end up with an alarmingly high proportion of 11's, and it lands me right back on:



I've come full circle.


For the first space - the YA/TomorrowLand book, I'm choosing, by virtue of it being the only YA book on my TBR pile right now, Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs,and Andrew Davidson  


Tales of the Peculiar - Ransom Riggs,Andrew Davidson  A companion to the bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, soon to be a major motion picture directed by Tim Burton. 

Before Miss Peregrine gave them a home, the story of peculiars was written in the Tales.

Wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars. A fork-tongued princess. These are but a few of the truly brilliant stories in Tales of the Peculiar—the collection of fairy tales known to hide information about the peculiar world, including clues to the locations of time loops—first introduced by Ransom Riggs in his #1 bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.

For the second space - the ? space calling for a mystery or has a title that begins with any letter in the word CLUE, I've decided to go with the title, since reading a mystery feels, for me, like a gimme.  So I've chosen The Card Catalog: Books, Cards, and Literary Treasures by the Library of Congress, and Carla Hayden
