Awesome! We still have like... 8 hours to go yet here in the states. What are you reading first?!


message 24: by Noella (new)

Noella (kookiemonstar) | 3723 comments I'm starting with Last Breath (Morganville Vampires #11)
What will you read first?


message 25: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Mathis (betwixtthesepages) | 1681 comments Noella wrote: "I'm starting with Last Breath (Morganville Vampires #11)

Uhm. I'm starting the month off with a buddy read-- Between the Lines, by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer.

I'll also be reading Nirvana, by J.R. Stewart.


message 26: by Noella (new)

Noella (kookiemonstar) | 3723 comments Ooh Between the Lines sounds really interesting. I might hunt down a copy and join you later in the month :)


message 27: by Elizabeth (new)

Awesome! Yeah, it sounds WAY fun and the text is all colored and there are illustrations and I just... Also, there's a companion novel (Off the Page) and they have a youtube channel for the prince?!?! Like...all sorts of awesome going on with these books.


message 28: by Noella (new)

Noella (kookiemonstar) | 3723 comments Hahah that's cool


message 29: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Finally started a few books. Was trying to cut back to about 12 this month, but I think it's going to be more like 20-30. Oh well.


message 30: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Mathis (betwixtthesepages) | 1681 comments @Courtney I'm always at jealous of how much reading you get done! It's awesome. :)


message 31: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Elizabeth, I'm always amazed at how much you and everyone else read!

Until joining this group I had never read more than 70 books a year. Now I'm getting close to 200. It's kind of insane for me.


message 32: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments I did not forget about this challenge- just finishing up a few reads I started at the end of August


message 33: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments I didn't think you had forgotten. :) I hope you enjoyed your reads from August!


message 34: by Noella (new)

Noella (kookiemonstar) | 3723 comments How's it going everyone?

I just found a buddy for my 400 page book. So it means I can rack up 8 points once I'm done. Hooray XD


message 35: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Yay! Going well. I'm working on three books. One is a buddy and it's over 1000 pages so that'll be 12 points. I won't be finished with that one for ages though.


message 36: by Noella (new)

Noella (kookiemonstar) | 3723 comments Oh wow that's a monster of a read!


message 37: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments It is. It's Words of Radiance. It's my second time reading it. Love Sanderson's books.


message 38: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments I've finished my first book of September
Enchanter's Echo
Anise Rae
262 pages

and my link to the review
https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

Is that all I need?


message 39: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Also include the link to the edition of the book with that number of pages. There's actually an edition with 274 pages (I guess for this challenge they would give the same number of points though).

Leave it in our team review thread: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...


message 40: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments sweet, so how many points is that?


message 41: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments also how do i put a picture in?


message 42: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments I think that's two points. If

Above the comment box there is an option to add book/author click that and search for the book you want. At the bottom there is an option to use cover or link, choose cover.


message 43: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 1599 comments done- will you check it to see if it's right please


message 44: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments Yep, that looks fine. And the link to the title is fine if you don't get the picture up. :)


message 45: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 3719 comments @Elizabeth I see you have a buddy read for Cress scheduled. If I can fit it in I might join you. :)

That would be awesome if you do--would you like the link to the thread just in case, or just want to let me know if you decide to join before we start and get it then?


message 47: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Mathis (betwixtthesepages) | 1681 comments Also, just finished my first book for the month. Gave it 5 stars--September is off to an epic start! :D

How is everyone today (or this evening, as it's currently almost 6 pm my time)???

200 is epic! I've read... 114? books so far this year, which is crazy to me; this is the first year I've really READ so much, before now I'd go through phases but never read consistently despite loving books. I've discovered a TON of reads I'd never have found otherwise!
