My pick for the "Beach, sand or sun on the cover" square is Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi. And since I had two books that I did not finish this month, I´m claiming the "A book bust or bummer" spot for these two.

 

1. A book by a dead author - Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier

2. YA or children´s title - Ares: Bringer of Death by George O´Connor

3. A blast from the past: historical fiction - Jane Steele by Lindsay Faye

4. Mystery and suspence - Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn

5. Adapted for the big screen - High Fidelity by Nick Hornby

6. Read in a boat, tent or cabin - The Sign of Four by Arthur Conan Doyle

7. Beach, sand or sun on the cover - Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

8. A book bust or bummer - The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides and The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
