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.

Same here! Brittany, weren't we on the same team last time? :)

Btw, any ideas for our team name? And who wants to be captain?


Brittany Lynn  | 449 comments Denise, I think we were.

As for captain, I don't mind being if no one else wants to.

Team name suggestions, two for the taking, that's all I got right now lol


Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ (wolffaerie17) | 2154 comments Two For the Win as team name

Cathy Galloway | 338 comments Brittany, thank you for volunteering to be captain.
I live in Michigan, near Detroit.

This is my first time playing. A roll of 5 means we read a 5th book in series or space 5 means a book off the Maybe shelf, right?


message 29: by Brittany Lynn (new)

Brittany Lynn  | 449 comments Yes that's right!


message 30: by Cathy (new)

Cathy Galloway | 338 comments Okay. Then I'm going to read Fangirl from the Maybe list.

Lord's Fall (Elder Races, #5) by Thea Harrison by Thea Harrison
Finished:2/9/14
Rating:4 Stars
Review:This is the fifth book of The Elder Races Series. Pia and Dragos from the first book are front and center for this book. Pia is trying to negotiate a new treaty with Elven Demesne to improve relations with the Wyr and Elven Demesne. Dragos doesn't want Pia to go but relents anyway. He's needed to supervisor the Sentinel Games. What will happen next is anyone's guess? Your answers await you in Lord's Fall.

Ceremony in Death (In Death, #5) by J.D. Robb Ceremony in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #5)
Finished: 11 February 2014
Rating: ****

Review:
While this wasn't one of my favourite books from the series, one can always rely on J.D. Robb to deliver an entertaining, fast-paced read. In this one, Eve is asked to conduct a confidential investigation into a fellow cop's death that might implicate her mentor Feeney. Linking that case to a number of ritual murders leads her to learn far more about the occult and the people who dabble in it in various forms than she ever wanted to know. A solid entry in the series, though especially towards the end I felt that Eve came across as unreasonably more bitchy than usual.

Read:Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Finished 2/11/14
Rating ****

Review:

This book started off a little slow, but it added a couple of unexpected elements that added to the story. Cath is a freshman in college, adjusting to being away from home. She is a very popular fanfiction writer but she uses her writing to withdraw from real life. I enjoyed watching her bloom throughout her first year in college.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Review:
This book has been a great read. I am so sad that it is over. It is the first in a series and OMG wow! This book was so hilarious. I was laughing from the very beginning. I loved the Paula Deen references and being inside Drew's head was a great POV. Out of the books I've read in 2014 so far, if I could be any one character it would be Kate. This was an easy read and one that I will highly recommend.
