8565 I'm glad you're enjoying the challenge, Lusie! I do like the randomness (dice rolling) but also, the certainty that you'll be reading OFF your tbr instead of searching out of it... for a change ;)

8565 @Lauren: I'm going to need your help with Clue #3 :)
If you think any of the ones posted don't qualify, please let us know. Otherwise, I'd assume that they qualify. Thanks heaps!

8565 **sheepish laugh**
I just checked back on the other thread and realised that I've just read the book I meant to be reading for this shelf, Shadow and Bone... I rated it 4-4.5 stars as I enjoyed it quite a bit but it didn't quite blow me away to rate a 'must-read'. I will, however, pick up the next book in the series.

Anyway... I will try to get to one of the other 2 on my list ;p

8565 This month’s clues are courtesy of Lauren who finished second in Round 1 of Readers Pursuit.
LynnB finished first but due to personal circumstances has declined the offer.

In Greek and Roman mythology, Artemis and Diana, respectively, are the goddesses of the hunt, the moon and childbirth.

Your Clues:

1. Hunting weapon on the cover (rifles, bows, arrows, knives not swords or handguns)
2. “Moon” or moonlight” in the title/subtitle (No other variation allowed).
3. Pregnancy or childbirth as a central element in the text (this cannot only be at the end, can be fiction or non-fiction)

Please note which clue your book fits.

It will have to be The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4 since it's for my f2f bookclub & we're meeting this Sat!

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green"

aaah... I remember rushing through the read (seeing the movie the next day), staying up late & sobbing & ended up unable to sleep because of a blocked nose ;p
Lots of sobs at the movies the next day too
I hope you like it!

Just use the LP page count since that's what you're physically reading.
