message 8: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments Now I have one question, that V. Name one, how do I find that out? Since the link to the generator links to dates and not names.


message 9: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments And also I need help with the Cowboy thing. If anyone has suggestions for YA (or very, very, very tame NA), let me know. I tried listopias, but the amount of naked/half naked cowboys and the fact 90% of those books are adult/NA didn't help.

At the top there is a link to 'Random Generators' and then scroll down to 'Name Generators'.

As for cowboy books, here are a few that I found.

Lost and Found (Lost and Found, #1) by Nicole Williams and Chasing Nikki (Chasing Nikki, #1) by Lacey Weatherford are on a ranch I think?

Ashfall (Ashfall, #1) by Mike Mullin they grow something at the end of the book. I just don't remember what it was! lol! It's really good if you like dystopian books.

Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley and Chasing McCree (Chasing McCree, #1) by J.C. Isabella have cowboys on the cover

Not a Drop to Drink (Not a Drop to Drink, #1) by Mindy McGinnis the MC had a garden

That's all I could find on a quick search. Not sure how tame they will be but I hope you find something you like. :)


message 11: by Mehsi (last edited May 25, 2014 03:12AM) (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments I cannot for life find it, could you post the link? I checked like 4 times, so I might just have missed it. Again the name generator for the name one, isn't a name generator, it leads to the dates generator.

Thanks so very much for the books! I will be sure to check them out. :) Some seem really interesting and I hope they count.
