Vi | 592 comments Hi CaroB, was the Doomsday as uneventful for you as it is for me?
Oh and I'll be travelling tonight and tomorrow. So I might not reply until Sunday.


message 7: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments It was eventful, but nothing earth shattering - bad pun, I know.

I'm going to go away for a week on Sunday, so will only be checking in intermittently on my phone for the next week and then I'll be back full force.

message 11: by Carrie (new)

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) Hi :)

Anyone have any name ideas?


message 12: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments I just googled "songs with Red in the title" and it came up with a whole bunch I didn't know, lol

We could be the:
"Ladies in Red" (am I showing my age?)
Or the "Little Red Corvettes"
The Red Hot Chilli Peppers?
Or the Scarlets Starlets (ref to the U2 song there)?

Or we could just keep Team Red?

Just a teeny tiny bit. It looks like your sneaking with me ;)


message 19: by Vi (new)

Vi | 592 comments Checking in.. I like all the names! I'm horrible at coming up with names. Anyway, Karen hasn't checked in yet and we also need to come up with a captain.


message 20: by Carrie (new)

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) I'm fine with whoever is captain as long as it's not me :P


message 21: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments Hi guys, is there any chance someone else can be captain? I can do it, but don't want to be accused of favouritism if we win and I'm helping with the comp.


message 22: by Vi (new)

Vi | 592 comments I can be captain, CaroB. No need to flatten you with all the work this soon. We do want to see this party regularly :P


message 23: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments Vi, you are a legend!!!! Thank you!


message 24: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 337 comments Hey guys! I'm a late added team player! Can't wait I loved the first round and love the changes to the rules this time. It will be interesting to see what happens


message 25: by Carrie (new)

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) Welcome Melissa :)


message 26: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments Welcome Melissa!


message 27: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments How are a doing for names? Are we happy sticking with Team Red?


message 28: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 337 comments I'm fine with Team Red unless someone likes a different name


message 29: by Vi (new)

Vi | 592 comments Happy New Year ladies! (Even though it is a bit late) I'm ready to get back to GR in full gear after my vacation.

This time, we have an individual score as well as a team score.

Team score, obviously, depends on how fast we read our books. Individual scores are calculated as mentioned in this post.

Now, Mr. Elf has posted a sneak peek into the first week's song - to be posted tomorrow, 4th Jan. Here they are:

Susan: Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi (1986)
Gisela: Drops of Jupiter by Train (2001)
Lisa Kay: That's How You Know, by Amy Adams (2007)
Caroline: Battlescars by Guy Sebastian feat. Lupe Fiasco (2012)
Online Elf: Jingle Bell Rock by Billy Idol (2006)

For the links to lyrics and video, check out this post.

Any suggestions for the books? Anybody here who lists books ahead of time?

Lina | 5563 comments I'm thinking I'm going to try to go with Setting or Name to get the most points, but I'll be honest and let you all know that I'm a pretty moody reader, so it'll end up being whatever I'm in the mood for on the day.
Here are my reading options for each song

Susan: Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi (1986)
1986: A Girl Named Summer by Julie Garwood Between the Lines by Jayne Ann Krentz The Ties That Bind by Jayne Ann Krentz Crystal Flame by Jayne Ann Krentz Too Hot to Handle by Elizabeth Lowell Timeshadow Rider by Ann Maxwell Midnight Rainbow (Kell Sabin, #1) by Linda Howard Fire Of Spring (Silhouette Desire, No 265) by Elizabeth Lowell Red Rose (Signet Regency Romance) by Mary Balogh Rebellious Desire by Julie Garwood The Trysting Place (Waite, #1) by Mary Balogh
Name: Wanted - Dead or Alive by Amber Scott or Wanted Undead or Alive (Love at Stake, #12) by Kerrelyn Sparks might work for someone else?
Also, wondering if one of the Sinners on Tour books might work, considering the song is about being on tour and that series is all about a touring rock band...

Lina | 5563 comments Re-reads are allowed, but I think they have to be older than 6 months.


message 32: by ~Megan~ (new)

~Megan~ (megadee) I highly recommend Midnight Rainbow by Linda Howard...fantastic book!

Thanks Megan! Good to know.

Vi | 592 comments Ladies, this week's song is posted HERE. It's ♬ Battlescars by Guy Sebastian feat. Lupe Fiasco (2012).

A couple of things to note:

1. The number of points we get as a team depends on how fast we read. If we finish by tomorrow, we get 8; the day after 7 and so on. If we don't finish reading before the 7 days, then we get ZERO points.

2. As individual, we can combine different categories (ex: publishing date match gives 6 points while author name match gives 5; total leading to 11)

So what are you all going to read for this week's song?


message 35: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments Oooh, Vi, very succinctly put!!! Thank you!!

I'm searching through my shelves to see what the best point combo is...


message 36: by Vi (new)

Vi | 592 comments I think I'll go with His Very Own Girl by Carrie Lofty

It has:
Published in 2012 - 6 pts
Plot, takes place in a war - 3 pts

Unfortunately, this book is ebook-only and I'm trying to get it approved first in the general thread. I'm also checking if the fighter planes on the cover can be used to check off a category.


message 37: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 337 comments Ack I think I'm going to cry! I have no clue what to read. I have two reading challenges plus two buddy reads. What the heck was I thinking. Ok I'm gonna focus on this one first since we get points for finishing faster. Now then I just have to figure out what the heck I'm gonna read.


message 38: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments I'm in the same boat Melissa.


message 39: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments These are my choices so far:

The Darkest Hour (KGI, #1) by Maya Banks
Shelf= 1 point
Gun on Cover= 2 points

The Night Is Mine (The Night Stalkers, #1) by M.L. Buchman
Shelf= 1 pt
Gun on Cover= 2 points
Setting = 6 points

In Rides Trouble (Black Knights, Inc., #2) by Julie Ann Walker
Shelf= 1 pt
Smoke on Cover= 2 points
Setting = 6 points

Skin Deep (I-Team, #5.5) by Pamela Clare
Shelf= 1 pt
Plot (scarred) = 3 points
Dogtags (video) on Cover= 2 points
Setting = 6 points


message 40: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 337 comments Right now I'm looking at Sand Dollar A Story of Undying Love by Sebastian Cole

published 2012-6
Author's name- 5

SCORE!! I'd say go for it!


message 42: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 337 comments I think I'm going to. Best part of all is it looks like it is actually posted on here for free.


message 43: by Vi (new)

Vi | 592 comments CaroB, you should go for the I-Team novella - it's short and it gives you 12 points. It's a win.

Melissa - I'm glad you found a book that fits.

I started reading Captain's Fury (Codex Alera, #4) by Jim Butcher yesterday night. It's a chunkster (is there any bonus point for completing a chunkster??) though but I'm about 200+ pages in. Hopefully, I'll get it done today. How are you all progressing?


message 44: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments I'm about a third of the way through, will finish tonight or tomorrow.

How's everyone else going with their reading?


message 45: by Vi (new)

Vi | 592 comments I'm more than halfway through my book. I hope to finish tonight if my cousin lets me.


message 46: by Vi (new)

Vi | 592 comments Has Carrie checked in yet?


message 47: by Lina (new)

Lina | 5563 comments Maybe she's forgotten?


message 48: by Carrie (new)

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) I haven't sorry, I'm here.


message 49: by Carrie (new)

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) I've picked Her Forbidden Hero (The Hero, #1) by Laura Kaye


message 50: by Phoenix (Online Elf), Moderator (new)

Phoenix (Online Elf) | 4358 comments That cover reminds me of last night, Miss Carrie.
