SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments Hello Team 2!! :-)


message 8: by Kari (new)

Kari | 139 comments hey all!


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments Wow, either we have drastically different time zones or something. Any idea for names? There are a few plays that we could make on the number 2.


message 10: by Crystal S (new)

Crystal S (CrystalAnn) | 487 comments Valerie! LOL Hello team!


message 11: by Jade aka MrsTosh (new)

Jade aka MrsTosh (MrsTosh) Hey ladies looking forwards to playing another round :)


message 12: by Kari (new)

Kari | 139 comments Hmm team name possibilities:

2 Themed:
Need 2 Read
The Terrible 2's

Reading Themed:
The Bookaneers

Paranormal Themed:
Readers with a Bite

Anyone else have ideas?

Also anyone interested in being captain?


message 13: by Midu (new)

Midu Hadi | 1580 comments hey Kari! *waves*


message 14: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments Unfortunately, creative naming isn't my forte. I was on team
2 in round 4... We were called Second to None.

I also like Twice as Nice (I think I've seen that before.)

Terrible 2's and Bookaneers have a nice ring to them.


message 15: by Kari (new)

Kari | 139 comments Hey Midu! Good luck this round :)


message 16: by Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ (last edited Sep 14, 2012 06:02AM) (new)

Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments Not the creative type either.
2 hansome?
2 voracious readers?
2 fast and furious?
2 hot to read?


message 17: by Jade aka MrsTosh (new)

Jade aka MrsTosh (MrsTosh) Me either so this should be fun:)

One little duck (bingo call for number 2 ball

The Tremendous 2's

Two Win :)

Some other good ideas above guys, I'm eager to get reading now :)


message 18: by Crystal S (new)

Crystal S (CrystalAnn) | 487 comments No suggestions for team names. I'm horribly uncreative. I like Terrible 2's.

I was captain of my team last round so I know how to do it if no one else wants to. Anyone else is welcome to do it if they want to. LOL


message 19: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments Ok we have 3 votes for Terrible 2's.

I was Captain in round 4. I don't mind doing it if no one else wants to.

Looks like have one player who hasn't checked in. Does anyone know Lily?


message 20: by Kari (new)

Kari | 139 comments I'm good with terrible 2's. and I was also a captain last round so I can do it, however I'm not particularly eager to take the position this round. I am good with whoever wants it.


message 21: by Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ (last edited Sep 14, 2012 08:58AM) (new)

Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments I'll vote for Terrible 2's too. I was co-captain 2 rounds ago (like I would harass my team mates to post their reviews so that I could compile them and the captain would request the stamp). it was funny at times and others not.
This time around I'll be more occupied so I am not the best choice either...especially on weekends where it counts the most.

Hell, we are a team of 'former' captains, won't be hard to whip us into shape. :-)


message 22: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments I sent Lili a PM with a link to this thread.


message 23: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments I am so ready to start reading! :-)


message 24: by Kari (new)

Kari | 139 comments haha at least we understand how frustrating it can be hunting down those reviews!


message 25: by Kari (new)

Kari | 139 comments Shelf I'm most excited for: series catch-up (I have so many series going right now it's pathetic)

Shelf I'm trying to figure out what to do with: dragons - I have absolutely no books with dragons in my TBR pile by my bed right now. A trip to the library may be in order for that shelf.

How about everyone else?


message 26: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments True, as former captains we should all be diligent in posting our reviews!

I'm looking forward to series catch-up or anything that is a freebie.

I don't think I have any dragon books, either. I could re-read one of the Game of Thrones books but not in a week, that's for sure!


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments Shelf series catch-up is always good to have.

Kari, there is a reading challenge for dragons on SOS and people did some mini reviews and stuff. Might help. I myself when on a binge reading and overdosed on PNR last year. I'm very cynical and read a few...make what you want of my rant:
(view spoiler)

I have yet to read Temeraire series, alternate history with Napoleonic wars with air support...from dragons. Lots of awards too.


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments My most dreaded shelf is Goodreads author...somehow i never want to read what`s on that shelf.


message 29: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments Hmmmm. Valerie, I'll have to take a look at that one in advance!


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments The problem is that I'm late reading YA novels. I'm not saying that I don't like them...it's just there are so damn many with high rating....and many with category like Goodreads authors and the like.


message 31: by Jade aka MrsTosh (new)

Jade aka MrsTosh (MrsTosh) My problem isn't with the shelves its the books contained there find it really difficult just choosing one, think I might need to put a selection in a hat this time around and pull one out!

I am fine with the team name terrible two... Although hope we're not terrible :)

I have never been captain and too be honest don't think I would have time lots of decorating going in the house at the minute, but maybe we could use the person who volunteered first.

Looking forwards to the shelf announcement later..... Happy reading team :)


message 32: by Crystal S (new)

Crystal S (CrystalAnn) | 487 comments I think I volunteered first, but I would rather not be captain this round, since I just did it in the last round. Since there are other volunteers I will gracefully bow out of the race. LOL


message 33: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments Val, I tend to read a lot of YA. I could give you some recommendations based on your interests.

Ok, I will volunteer for captain. It will keep me on my toes!

Still no word from Lili. If we haven't heard from her by the time our shelf is announced (later today!), the mods will decide what action to take.

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments Valerie, it's on 1073 shelves so your chances are pretty good! So, this is a series you would recommend? (I read Slave to Sensation (Psy-Changeling #1) by Nalini Singh and didn't really care for it.)


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments I love both series, they are pretty similar except for the world building. I love the characters because even if it's PNRish...there is a story.

If you did not care for one series, you might not like this one either. The author is pretty consistent in her writing style.


message 37: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments Thanks for the info. I try not to dismiss an author based on one book, so I just may try her again. This challenge would be a good place to do it.


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments I always give an author two books. I would have missed out the Rachel Morgan series, the Dresden Files and the Cassandra Palmer otherwise.


message 39: by Breann (new)

Breann | 936 comments I love your team name!! Mostly because I'm experiencing this in my home at the current moment!

*waves* Hi Jade!!

message 43: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments For Free Space, I will read Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1) by Cassandra Clare


message 44: by Lili (new)

Lili | 297 comments Hey team... I'm here, sorry for the delay, I have the flu and I'm still at that stage where you feel like you just want to die.

I love Bingo!, been playing for a while and I think my team won once... but I'm not sure, I'm not sure of anything right now.

Therrible 2's a great the name!
Give me a minute to look for my books and I'll post them in a bit.


Valerie ~ Val Hall ~ | 7080 comments Damn, I wanted to read Jason's book...but it's not to be. I'm in the middle of a few books right now so I'll put Stormwalker (Stormwalker, #1) by Allyson James as kick ass heroine shelf, should be finished later this week.


message 46: by SandyC (new)

SandyC (sandyc88) | 288 comments Hi Lili. So sorry you're sick. Hope you feel better soon!

Looking forward to your review of this. I really like her historical romances written as Jennifer Ashley.


message 48: by Crystal S (new)

Crystal S (CrystalAnn) | 487 comments I'll be reading Rogue (Shifters, #2) by Rachel Vincent for the kick ass heroines.

I'll figure out my free space book later.
