Duration: September 15 - December 31, 2012

The original idea belongs to ❥☪LIZZ NEILL☪❥t of The Lost Challenges, who has given me permission to use the concept for this challenge.
However, I have made some changes so that it would fit nicely to our group.

Rules:
- You can read as many books as you like to find all the items on the list.
- You can claim at most 5 items from the same book even there are more than 5 can be found in the said book.
- In order for the item to be crossed out from the list, you need to extract the sentence(s) where the item can be found.
- If you fail to extract the sentence(s) as a proof, the item is not counted as found item.
- You have to read the whole book to get the points for the found items in the said book. Therefore, a review and rating for the read book is needed.
- The review doesn't have to be long. A few sentences are good enough.
- The books you've read before the starting date cannot be used for this challenge.
- You can use the books you read for other challenges for this challenge.
- The winner will be the first one who has found all items or the one who has found the most items by December 31, 2012

Great Qs, Trisha.

1. Pastor is acceptable.
2. As for celebrity, you need the name of the celebrity in real life that appear in the book.

Trisha | 31440 comments The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen

Finished: 09/18

Rating: 5/5

Review: Sarah Dessen is just an amazing author. Her characters are always so well developed and so real. They are never perfect, but always flawed but so naturally that you can't help but love them even more with all their faults. The story is just amazing.

Items Found (5 total):

People 3/15
Football Player (disc 7, track17): "Fifteen minutes later, I found myself still in the kitchen talking to a football player who was named either Hank or Frank. "
Celebrity: Tammy Wynette (disc 7, track 3): "How embarressing, I thought, to suddenly be on the verge of tears at a truck stop waffle house with Tammy Wynette in the background."

Review: An average girl going through her sophmore, junior, etc years. She has her ups and downs and many adventures. I just thought the Jessica Darling was a pretty horrible person. I couldn't figure out why anyone liked her - especially the most popular boy in school! I also didn't find her or the high school experience very believable.

Finished: 09/22

Rating: 3/5

Review: I may change my rating. A book about suicide, espcially a YA boook, is always difficult - to read and review. Just know what you are getting into before you read it. It's difficult to read about a girl wanting so bad to end her own life.

Finished: 09/26
Rating: 2/5
Review: a sad story about being selfish, lonely and lies. The characters and the language is pretty dated, so I'm not sure who I could recommend this book for.

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 32355 comments Gisbelle, hi! :o) I saw that you were moderating this group so decided to check it out and join it.

This scavenger hunt is closed now until January to newcomers right? I don't know if I'd do it anyway because I'm slow enough without more to slow me down, but it does look fun.
