Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments The Story Telling Challenge ~ A Weekly Theme Challenge


Hi Everyone,

We're always trying to infuse a little creativity into our challenges. We want your participation, but we also want to give you freedom to read what you want:)

This is another challenge where all you have to do is participate to have a chance to win.

Here is how it works:
We will start off posting a story-starting scenario and a related question. Every week there is a continuation of the story and another related question here:
http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1...

-Create a Story-Telling Shelf
-Read one book each week that "fits" with the question. You may only use a book once in this challenge. It can't count for multiple weeks.
- Post a review on this thread in the same time period, and get one raffle chance to win a prize at the end. **We'll even give you a bonus raffle chance for every book you use for a Buddy Read!

This challenge will run from January 1- April 1.
There will be 3 winners chosen by raffle. Each will receive an ebook!
Please respond to this thread if you are participating.

We hope you'll give this a try :)
♥Your Mods

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Sure Kelly :)
Did you go to this link?
http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1...
Answer the question e.x. this week's question is what does your ideal guy/girl look like? so, you're supposed to find a book this week with someone who is your ideal guy or girl on the cover and read and review it during the week of Jan. 1-Jan7. Since this challenge runs through April 1st, on January 1st I'll post the scenario and questions that correspond to every week of the challenge. That way you can find books that have the right kind of characters, or the right kind of covers ahead of time to answer the weekly theme questions.
Does that help?

It is all in fun! One book a week is an easy challenge. Hopefully;)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments I think one book a week is pretty do-able, too,, but everyone reads at different paces. That's what really decided us on making this a raffle challenge. At the end, I'm going to list all of the 13 of the books i read, sort of like Mad Libs style, so it tells a bit of a story :)

I might read Forever Mine (The Moreno Brothers, #1) by Elizabeth Reyes . He's hot-ish, I guess. o.o I actually wanted to read Onyx (Lux, #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout , but I don't have it yet. I don't like reading ebooks so I was thinking about buying a physical copy of it. It's not going to come for awhile, so yeah... :/

message 20: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Angela, did you see in the other story-telling challenge thread that Novel posted a link for a Listopia list with all the books that guy ( the one on the cover of the Lux books) is on? His name his Pepe Toth and I didn't even know it till Novel told me, but he's been on a lot of YA book covers.

Kelly | 35 comments I'm in!!! But, how do you do the tiny book cover things?


message 27: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 2272 comments Okay everyone, I might be a grandma but I CAN and have done better than Grandpa the Giver!! Think I'll find my own hot guy, young or old! Probably young due to a lack of choices. Still looking!


message 28: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Kelly, right above the comment box is add book/author link. Click on it . Then type the name of the book, and click on the dot for cover, then search. When your book is found, click add. It will return you to the comment box. Finish what you are writing, post it, and you should see your book.

message 33: by Kelly (new)

Kelly | 35 comments Which one? Awakened , Sweet Evil , or Obsidian ?


message 34: by Greta (last edited Dec 27, 2012 09:46AM) (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Tough call...hmmm...I'd definitely say it would be between Sweet Evil and Obsidian for me.
I think Daemon is hotter, but Sweet Evil better.


message 35: by Jalyn (new)

Jalyn (jalynnie) | 3847 comments Oops, I wrote "I'm in" in the wrong thread. So...I'm in! Not sure what i'm reading yet though.

Kelly, that's a tough decision! I loved all 3 books, but I'd say the hottest guy is definitely Daemon from Obsidian for me :)


message 36: by Kelly (new)

Kelly | 35 comments KK, thanks.


message 37: by Sara (new)

Sara Vicki! Where are you Vicki!
So if The Giver (The Giver, #1) by Lois Lowry ain't doing it for you maybe This guy will Diary of a Mall Santa by Stewart Scott hahaha
Or i found a third one for you The Mighty Storm (The Storm, #1) by Samantha Towle ! Heck! I might even go for guy number 3!


message 38: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments I think I have to go raid Novel's read shelf. She's read a lot of New Adult books with hotties on the cover :)


message 39: by Kinsey (new)

Kinsey (goodreadscomsunset3446) | 46 comments Didn't realize how hard it is to find a guy I would describe as hot on the cover!


message 40: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Lol! I know what you mean. I think it's cause I only find them to after I've read the book!


message 41: by Greta (last edited Dec 27, 2012 06:28PM) (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments I've already read it, but I would suggest Mobster's Girl (Mobster, #1) by Amy Rachiele ? I think he's hot! The story is great and it's a cheap book and a short read!

Ilike this series. Can't wait for the third book.


message 43: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments I haven't even checked to see when it comes out, but I 'm absolutely going to read book 3!


message 44: by Sara (new)

Yeah, I know he's been on a lot of book covers. Pepe Toth *-* I don't want to have to wait for the copy to come in the mail, and most are series. When school starts again, I won't have time to finish the series. -_-


message 46: by Jess (new)

Jess | 329 comments I'll give it a try, this sounds like fun! :) Now I just have to find a hot guy... I think the only challenge here will be picking just one! ;)

What kind of a name is Pepe Toth?He's hot,so I think his name doesn't matter.

Eh. I don't like his name either, tbh. He is hot though ;D


message 49: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments Jessica, I'm actually finding myself having a bit of a hard time finding a hot guy cover and a book I want to read. Lol !


message 50: by Kinsey (new)

Kinsey (goodreadscomsunset3446) | 46 comments I have only found 2 books I might even consider and they still aren't my fav.... Well, guess I'll just have to keep looking ;)
