Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments Hello teammates! *Bounces up and down* Did you know that orange is a power color?

"With its enthusiasm for life, the color orange relates to adventure and risk-taking, inspiring physical confidence, competition and independence. Those inspired by orange are always on the go!"

message 7: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments I think I'm the Leslie (spelled Lesley) that's supposed to be on this team. I didn't see any other Leslie that had signed up to play.
I've never played this before, but I have played other Team Challenges. I'm so excited!!

message 9: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments HI Gea! I'm happy to be on a team with you again!! Merry Christmas to all. I'm headed for New Orleans for the week, it's going to be crazy.


message 10: by ~Megan~ (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) Have fun, Leslie!

We need a team name and a captain....any ideas, guys?


message 11: by Gea (new)

Gea (gea89) | 412 comments Leslie, I'm happy to have a known person who's a good player in the team too :)

I'm not really good with making up names, but I would like to try myself as a captain this round if no one else is interested.

Happy holidays to everyone, I will envy you these days because I have to wait two weeks to have my Christmas and all good food that goes with it :)

Yay! Gea for captain xD xD

I saw in the other thread that we don't need a name but I could be fun to have one anyway. I googled song titles with "orange" and found some:

Orange Crush (REM)
Orange County Girls (Gwen Stefani)
Apples And Oranges (Pink Floyd)
Agent Orange (Depeche Mode)

Maybe we could do something with that? What do you ladies think?


message 13: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments I'll vote Gea for captain and I like Orange Crush for a name. Sorry you have to wait for your Christmas break, Gea. I hope your semester has gone well. My son just finished his last semester!


message 14: by ~Megan~ (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) I vote yes to Gea, too!

Orange Crush is good with me as well.


message 15: by Laura (new)

Laura | 85 comments I vote yes to Gea too :)


message 16: by Laura (new)

Laura | 85 comments I love Orange County Girls :)


message 17: by Gea (new)

Gea (gea89) | 412 comments Thanks for vote of confidence and I hope I learned enough in past team challenges to be a good team captain :)

I like Agent Orange song the most, but Orange Crush sounds better for a team name :)


message 18: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Heehee, I'm already stalking other team's threads :)

I had to say how much I love the name Orange Crush...we have an orange kitty named Crush cause of the drink :)

Haha I just said the same thing the Red team thread.


message 20: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments Leslie, I'm so sorry I misspelled your name! As soon as I have access to a computer I'll change the first post so it has the correct spelling.


message 21: by Susanne (new)

Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you have had a good holiday! I also like Orange Crush...because we're going to crush the other teams xD Lol!


message 22: by ~Megan~ (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) Merry Christmas! I like that, Susanne! We will crush them all!! ;-)


message 23: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments CaroB - I have no attachment to how my name is spelled. So no worries there. I just wanted to make sure I had the right team.
And Susan(Susayq) you are always welcome to stalk!

Happy New Year Team Orange!


message 24: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new)

Laura | 85 comments Happy New Year Everyone!!

Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments Happy New Years! Have you seen the preview of the songs yet?


message 27: by Laura (new)

Laura | 85 comments Just checked it out....sounds good. I wonder what song will be called first...


message 28: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments I kind of hope Jingle Bell Rock gets called first. I still have some Christmas books I want to read.


message 29: by ~Megan~ (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) LOL Susan! I can't decide which I'm rooting for...


message 30: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Shosho and I have a list of books published in 1986, in case my song gets picked, over on Team Yellow's thread :)

I also have that! But I have to read a book published in 1986 for the Lifetime Challenge so I think I'm routing for that one xD *Hurries off to check your list*


message 32: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments I'm hoping for Jon Bon Jovi as well - I've got a book with a character riding a steel horse (motorcycle). Plus I love that song and Jon Bon Jovi is absolutely gorgeous to look at!

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments great picture, Susanne! I wanted to be a ballerina when I was younger.


message 35: by Susanne (new)

Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments Thanks Susan! I've never tried to actually dance ballet but I love to watch it xD


message 36: by Susan (susayq ~), Moderator (new)

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments I took lessons for several years and then again in college. I loved it.


message 37: by Susanne (new)

Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments It's up! The first song is ♬ Battlescars by Guy Sebastian feat. Lupe Fiasco (2012).

I'll go for a book published in 2012 - there are so many of those on my wishlist. What are you ladies reading?

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Love the pic, Susanne. So beautiful.


message 39: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Oh, there's a series of them...




message 40: by Susanne (new)

Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments Wow! I didn't know. Where did you find them?


message 41: by Phoenix (Online Elf), Moderator (last edited Jan 04, 2013 05:47AM) (new)

Phoenix (Online Elf) | 4358 comments Miss Susanne, I just did a search for Aesha Ash; images.


message 42: by Laura (new)

Laura | 85 comments I'm going to read Everneath (Everneath, #1) by Brodi Ashton and it's published 2012


message 43: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments I think I'll be reading Deadly Game (GhostWalkers, #5) by Christine Feehan . The main character is covered in scars he received during a battle. Does that work?


message 44: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments yep, that links to the title.


message 45: by ~Megan~ (last edited Jan 04, 2013 07:19AM) (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) I'm going to read Rev It Up (Black Knights, Inc., #3) by Julie Ann Walker

Published in 2012
On the Military Romance Shelf
Plot links to lyrics:

Jake left Michelle to protect her from himself and his job, but they have both always loved each other. When she gets in trouble, they are thrown back together.
Lyrics:
I wish I never looked, I wish I never touched
I wish that I could stop loving you so much
Cause I'm the only one that's trying to keep us together
When all of the signs say that I should forget her
I wish you weren't the best, the best I ever had
I wish that the good outweighed the bad
Cause it'll never be over, until you tell me it's over


The lyrics fit, right?? LOL

Also, PS - Never heard this song before, but I love it like woah.


message 46: by Lina (last edited Jan 04, 2013 07:26AM) (new)

Lina | 5563 comments sure sounds like it Megan! So that would get you 3 points for a plot link.


message 47: by Susanne (new)

Susanne (bookcrazy47) | 884 comments Good find Megan!

I've narrowed it down to either Hell on Wheels (Black Knights, Inc., #1) by Julie Ann Walker Checking It Twice by Jodi Redford A Rogue by Any Other Name (The Rules of Scoundrels, #1) by Sarah MacLean .

I'm so moody today I think I'll read the samples before deciding xD


message 48: by Gea (new)

Gea (gea89) | 412 comments I couldn't find anything better on my shelves so I will read Hell on Wheels (Black Knights, Inc., #1) by Julie Ann Walker and I will have it read by tomorrow.

I started the master list in my first post and I would like to remind you that we have to read all books for this week by next Friday if we want to get points. I plan to make this challenge my priority and will do my best to have my books read by Saturday evening or Sunday morning.


message 49: by ~Leslie~ (new)

~Leslie~ (akareadingmachine) | 845 comments I just finished Hell on Wheels last week and it is pretty good. I think you will enjoy it, Gea.


message 50: by ~Megan~ (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) Yep, it's good...I've enjoyed the whole series so far!
