The alternates:
Each number corresponds with the spot on the board.
For colors: The cover has to be at least 50%
For locations: As long as the book takes part at all in the given location .
For Shelves: Any book on the given shelf
For Publication Years: I'll be using how GR has it's publication date listed.
For Authors Names: The first, middle, or last name of the author is ok.
For Titles: Only the first word of the title. A, An, And, and The do not count.
So if the letter is B: The Best Day would be ok. Dear Betty would not be ok.

Sue Morris | 1095 comments Hi,
I'm Sue. I love to read but I would prefer not to be captain. Good Luck all and I am so ready to start on Friday !!!!

The only name I can think of is.... Series-us Six


message 5: by Logan (new)

Logan (loganturner) | 904 comments Hello team!

I'm very excited to start this game. I love the name Series-us Six! Thanks Sue! I'm terrible with names so I have nothing better to offer.

I could be captain if no one else wants it. I'm in Central Time, but I don't think I'm likely to be up until midnight most Thursday nights, so I wouldn't be able to roll until around 7am when I get up, though. If we have a night owl or someone in a more advantageous time zone maybe we should go with them.

maria helena (mariahel) | 378 comments Hi Team

I think Series-us Six is a great name.

Elishia, if you any week won't be able to roll, I can help out (midnight CST is 8 pm for me).


message 8: by Sue (new)

Sue Morris | 1095 comments I'm for Elisha being captain.... Logan you would be a great captain also but since Elishia is in UK ,she won't have to wait for someone to roll to start new book....:)


message 9: by Logan (new)

Logan (loganturner) | 904 comments Totally fine with me! I figure the sooner everyone can start reading the better. :)


message 10: by Sue (new)

Sue Morris | 1095 comments True and with my insomnia if I am up ... I can start.... I am in Cental time zone also


message 11: by Elishia (last edited Feb 04, 2014 12:18PM) (new)

Elishia I'm a bit scared but that's one of the reasons I offered. Last round I felt like I had less time to read, it wasn't a problem most days. Plus I have plenty of time on my hands :-).

And thanks Maria Helena

Hina (hinaj) | 514 comments Hi guys!

Love the team name! I am in central time zone as well, and I have a long commute to work in the morning, so hopefully I can start reading. I can't offer to help with the rolls, I am up by five so by 10 pm I am like a zombie looking for my bed (unless I am reading a really good book).

Thanks Elishia for the PM, it would have taken me till tomorrow to figure out teams had been assigned.


message 13: by Sue (new)

Sue Morris | 1095 comments Looks like Elishia is our Captain and name is Series-us-Six...

Elisha I think you got to sign up thread and tell Jenne if you haven't already....:)

Good luck all !!!! And I can't wait till Friday to start....

4 stars
Alernate-Arizona
review-
Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running
an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old--when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer.

Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power--plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish--to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.

This book was kind of confusing in beginning,lots of Irish names...but the further I got into it ,the more I was hooked. Atticus is so down to earth for a non-human...and I soooo fell in love with his dog....

I look forward to continueing this series.


message 30: by Elishia (new)

Elishia Wow you were quick Sue. I've barely started mine keep getting distracted.


message 31: by Sue (new)

Sue Morris | 1095 comments I go though a book every 1-2 days....:)


message 32: by Elishia (new)

Elishia I used to as well but last year I had a few months when I just couldn't read and now i'm just getting back in to the hang of it.

BTW i've just seen that if we all finish before the next roll we get a free pass that we can use at a later date if one of us don't get our review in in time, we can only earn one free pass though.


message 33: by Sue (new)

Sue Morris | 1095 comments cool


message 34: by maria helena (new)

maria helena (mariahel) | 378 comments I just started my book but I'll have it finished by Thursday the latest.


message 35: by Logan (new)

Logan (loganturner) | 904 comments I should be done by Thursday too. I'm out of town this weekend so I'm reading a bit slower than usual, but I should catch up on Wedneday.

maria helena (mariahel) | 378 comments ROLL #1, SPOT #7
Alternative - Location: Arizona

The Search (Eve Duncan, #3) by Iris Johansen

Book: The Search by Iris Johansen
Series: Eve Duncan #3, part of the book is set in Arizona.
Date finished: February 9, 2014
Rating: ★★★★
Review: This is the third book in the Eve Duncan series (which I've been reading out of order). Contrary to the other books in the series, the main focus is not on Eve Duncan, Joe Quinn and Jane. Instead, this book focuses on Sarah Patrick and her dog Monty, and John Logan. Eve and her family only plays a minor roll. I really enjoyed this book. It was unpredictable, and I liked the characters much more than when they were introduced in a previous book. It is definitely worth reading!


message 37: by Elishia (new)

Elishia Don't worry I only started mine late last night and haven't even picked it up today, I need to get on track.

Elishia Roll 1: Spot 7
Book: Up From the Grave
Rating: ★★★★
Finished: 11/02/14
Review:
I really enjoyed this last installment, I think the fact I was caught out twice might of helped. It rounded up everything nicely but it would of been nice to see how Katie got on (btw that bit was so obvious don't know how Cat didn't know). Plus I would like to have seen some grovelling from Don, guess he's punishment is to be stuck as a ghost.


message 41: by Elishia (new)

Elishia How are you getting along Hina? you've been quiet ☺


message 42: by Hina (new)

Hina (hinaj) | 514 comments Hi Elishia,

Sorry I have been busy since the weekend. My dad was on the tranplant list, and over the weekend they called us for a donation, and transplant surgery. Everything went well. I have been at the hospital since then, but I get plenty of time reading, I started my book last night, I should finish by tonight hopefully.


message 43: by Elishia (new)

Elishia Aah glad everything went well for him.

Hexed (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #2) by Kevin Hearne
Book: Hexed by Kevin Hearne
(Set in Tempe, Arizona)
Date finished: 2/12/14
Rating: ★★★★
Review: I love this series. I listened to the audio of this one a couple years ago, and I was pleasantly surprised to come back to it and not remember all of it. That final showdown with the witches was totally new, I felt! I love how Atticus and Oberon sprinkle humor even in the high tension moments. All of the side characters feel real, even when they act outlandishly. A lot of this one felt like setup for book 3, which I didn't mind so much because I feel like Hearne is creating a full world where events have consequences beyond the individual books - like his effort to repair the scorched earth from book 1. Pretty cool!

Elishia I'm going to check in again before I go to bed (its only 7pm now) but if Hina's review isn't up by then would one of you be able to post our reviews? We have till midnight but i'll be sleeping when its midnight (or I can set my alarm if nobody's able to do it) I just don't want us to miss a roll.


message 48: by Jenne (new)

Jenne  (jennetheinstigator) | 7439 comments Hey E there's no time limit on posting the reviews, as long as it's in a timely manner you're good :) go get some sleep!
