BarbaraAnn | 297 comments Hi, I've only been active on goodreads for a few months and this will be my first group challenge. I'm really looking forward to this. I took a look at my TBR pile, which I think will carry me throughout several lifetimes. I love continuing characters, so there are hundreds of series books I want to read. This challenge will definitely help.

V_Nerdbooks | 5307 comments okay guys roll 1 week 1

5+4=9

Landing us on spot 9

#9 in a series
Alternatively you can read #9 California

Books must be in by Thursday evening


message 28: by Abbie (new)

Abbie | 1 comments Oh wow...this is today???


message 29: by BarbaraAnn (new)

BarbaraAnn | 297 comments Thanks! Se7en sounds good to me. I don't have any series with #9 ready to read, but I'll go with the alternate. The Art of Detection. It's the last book of the series so I'll actually be able to finish a series! Usually, I'm queen of unfinished series.


message 30: by Abbie (new)

Abbie | 1 comments Yup, I have to go with California as well for the first one


message 31: by Joanne (last edited Jan 15, 2016 04:39AM) (new)

Joanne I don't have any series that high either but luckily California is pretty easy. I have a couple of options for this one, just have to decide which one I will pick.

Edit: Decided on November 9 by Colleen Hoover by Colleen Hoover


message 32: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 5307 comments Loved that one Joanne


message 33: by Esther (new)

I love that series Esther. I forgot it's mostly based in San Francisco.


message 35: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 5307 comments I rolled the dice this morning before I went to work so I expect only just sat down to check my books.......umm #9......nope!


message 36: by Amber (new)

Amber | 155 comments No, nines for me either. So I'll have to go for California as well.


message 37: by Abbie (new)

Abbie | 1 comments Next time roll lower V....


message 38: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 5307 comments Haha I'll try, I'm trying to find something to fill a few challenges at once!
I'm trying to find a ROMANCE set in ASIA with a Y author and with a possibility of it being #9 in a series.............hmm anyone lol


message 39: by Joanne (new)

Joanne The ghost bride by Yangsze Choo is tagged as romance and Asia. Not a number 9 though.


message 40: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 5307 comments oooh thanks Joanne :•)


message 41: by Abbie (new)

Abbie | 1 comments Ohhh, The Ghost Bride is Super good...I even liked that one


message 42: by Esther (new)

Esther | 60 comments When we finish our book for the week, do we post the review on this thread?


message 43: by V_Nerdbooks (new)

V_Nerdbooks | 5307 comments Yes Esther, just a quick review with the date finished and the rating


message 44: by Esther (new)

Esther | 60 comments I finished Rosemary and Rue today (17th January 2016). I would give it a solid 3 out of 5 stars (which in my world means I liked it). It is the first book in a series, but it is set in California which is the alternate for this week.

It was a fun and rewarding read. I'm not a huge fan of the who-dunn-it style but I do like Seanan Mcguire and also enjoyed her Indexing. I like the fact that it feels like she has always done her research properly, so her fairies aren't just fairies for the sake of it. They're embedded in the traditional legends. Her characters are also always very real and she adds an additional layer of insight to her fun stories. This book has been waiting on my Kindle for a while and I'm so glad I was finally prodded into reading it. I will definitely keep going with this series.
