Jenne  (JennetheInstigator) | 7439 comments 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.

Angie ~aka Reading Machine~ (wolffaerie17) | 2133 comments Hello fellow teammates! Super excited to play this again! I know that I don't want to be captain. Here are my ideas for team name:

One for the road
One for the win
One Rockin' Readers

Jennifer H | 801 comments Hi Everyone! It is good to see you all. I would prefer not being captain but if nobody else wants to do it I can. I'm not great at coming up with names. The only thing I can come up with is "The Oneders"

Sue Morris | 1095 comments Hi team,

I am so ready to start.... lol I don't want to be captain and I like the Onodera name.....I don't think it has been used yet....


message 8: by Wanda (new)

Wanda (oma1229) | 278 comments Well, I too do not want to be captain, I vote that Jennifer our own Princess Penguin be our captain. I am sure she has a special touch with the dice! I am happy with any name and think that Jennifer should be allowed to make the choice for name. Looking forward to playing with all of you!

Jennifer H | 801 comments I was thinking last night while I should have been asleep and I thought of another name which I like more..."Onderful Ones" what do you guys think?

I am in the Eastern time zone so that means I will have to stay up til 1 am to start at midnight. That shouldn't be a problem most nights (I tend to be a night owl) but I'll try and let you know if I'm going to have to post later.

Rating: ♥♥♥♥

I have always enjoyed reading Linda Howard's books, they are generally a hot, sexy read that provides some great entertainment. This story-line wasn't as great as most of her books, but it wasn't really bad either...I guess I just felt that it was a little flat when compared to her other stories.
If you've never read a Howard book you'll enjoy this, but be sure to check out here other works as well, you won't be disappointed!

Born in Blood (The Sentinels, #1) by Alexandra Ivy
Finished:4/21/2014
Rating:4stars
Review: I loved this book and can't wait for the next one....I so missed the BDB series when I finished it and this one takes up where it left......lol

Sergeant Duncan O’Conner has seen it all before. A beautiful erotic dancer is found murdered in her home—no suspect, no motive. But there’s one clue: she’s missing her heart. It’s enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro—one of the dead-channeling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It’s a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desperate measures.

Unlike the other “high-bloods” in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer’s final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls. A ravenous force that will put Callie’s skills to the test, O’Conner’s career at risk, and both their hearts on the line…literally.

Dance of Shadows (Dance of Shadows, #1) by Yelena Black
Finished:4/25/2014
Rating:4 stars
Review: I had mixed feelings on this book.....Though the starry line was good,it was alittle childish dealing with 15 yr olds and was rather long at parts....

Dancing with someone is an act of trust. Elegant and intimate; you're close enough to kiss, close enough to feel your partner's heartbeat. But for Vanessa, dance is deadly – and she must be very careful who she trusts . . .

Vanessa Adler attends an elite ballet school – the same one her older sister, Margaret, attended before she disappeared. Vanessa feels she can never live up to her sister's shining reputation. But Vanessa, with her glorious red hair and fair skin, has a kind of power when she dances – she loses herself in the music, breathes different air, and the world around her turns to flames . . .

Soon she attracts the attention of three men: gorgeous Zep, mysterious Justin, and the great, enigmatic choreographer Josef Zhalkovsky. When Josef asks Vanessa to dance the lead in the Firebird, she has little idea of the danger that lies ahead – and the burning forces about to be unleashed . . .

This book definitely met my expectations! It was just as thrilling and interesting as the last two books in her series. Of course, you should not get this one unless you've read the first two (since it is a series). Larkin is an exceptional writer and captures the flapper era well.
