Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments The Winter White Color Challenge


Hi Everyone!

We are welcoming back our monthly color challenge series! This month we are reading books with covers that are more than 40% white. Please ask us if you are unsure if a book qualifies.

Rules and Guidelines:
-Respond to this thread that you are participating
-Using the GR Challenge tool, create a Winter White Challenge shelf. You can add as many books as you want on your goal box.
-Only books started, finished, and reviewed in January will count towards this challenge. Sorry, no re-reads on this one :(
-Post your reviews on this thread! We reserve the right to ask you to add details to a review that is too vague. We really do love reading what everyone writes :)
If you read a white book as a Buddy Read, it will count twice!! Just help us with scoring by indicating when you post your review that it was also a buddy read.

Even reading one book will get you a chance to win!
There will be two winners for this challenge.
>>The first winner will be the person with the most overall books read. He or she will receive 2 ebooks! .
>>A second winner will be chosen at random from all the participants. He/she will receive 1 ebook

Check out our awesome prize list here:

Remember, you have to be in it to win it!

Happy Reading!!
♥ Your Mods

Alley Kat (alleykat666) | 768 comments Will these count?

Claws by Mike Grinti A Diamond In My Pocket (The Unaltered #1) by Lorena Angell The Color of Night by Jack Thomas Gravity (Gravity, #1) by Abigail Boyd Heiress The Master of Monsters by E.E.

message 13: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 2272 comments I will try this one, too. I'll have to peruse my books and see which ones might fit.

I like the random winners because it gives everyone, even the slower readers, a chance to win. :o) Great idea, mods!

Also, could you check out the books I posted in message #12 and let me know if they count? Thank you! :D


message 25: by Greta (new)

Greta (goodreadsgreta) | 4571 comments I got Shatter Me from the library. Maybe you can get it there.

As for the books, I would say yes to all of them except maybe Looking for Alaska. We'll have to ask Jona for a second opinion on that one. :)
