❀While Christian is preferred, all genres are allowed.
❀You may reread a book for the challenge, it's not preferred but it is allowed. The book must be read in it's entirety, not just skimmed. You may not however reread a book that you used already for this challenge.
❀All books used for the challenge MUST be started AFTER the category is called. If you realize a book you've already started before the category would be a perfect fit for the challenge, you may restart it and then it will count - but only if you restart it.

Hey Team!! I'm excited for this challenge to start. Do either of you have any team name suggestions? I'll try to think of some, but right now it's time to watch some hockey! :)


message 9: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments Hi ladies! No ideas for a team name, maybe later. I'm a bit brain dead right now. Though I need to revive it a bit since there are two blog tour posts I need to work on for next week.


message 10: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments Hi Melanie and Rina! Excited to be on this team with you!

I was trying to google some ideas and saw a couple of cute ideas. Maybe one of these or a take on something like it. Bout as creative as I can get right now!

Chapter Chicks, Literary Ladies, Blogging Book Junkies, Blogging Book Buddies? ;-)


message 11: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
I like "Blogging Book Buddies" - since we are all book bloggers! Great name suggestions. :)

Do either of you want to be Team Captain? If not, I'm fine with being captain.


message 12: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments I don't have a burning desire to be captain :-) So, I am fine with you being it, as long as you don't mind!


message 13: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments I agree with Melanie, "Blogging Book Buddies" is a good name. Brittany, you've now been dubbed Captain of the Triple B. :-)


message 14: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
Yay! We have our team name!

Thank you for coming up with it, Brittany, and I don't mind being captain. I'll let Megan know our name and such.

Excited that the challenge will start tomorrow. :)


message 15: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments Sorry, I meant Melanie, must have been looking at Brittany's name when typing.

Yay for the team name! Quite curious how hard/easy it's going to be to find books for the various categories.


message 16: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
Me too. I've never done a book challenge like this before and I hope it's easy to find books. :)


message 17: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments It does sound fun! Glad we have a name! :-)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
The category is Main Female Character and the letter is "S".

I found my book. It's worth two points, since her first and last name start with S!


message 20: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
I found another book worth two points and it's available to loan, so if either of you want to read it, I can loan it to one of you. I'll DM you both the title. :)


message 21: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments I just borrowed a book and it just so happens that the main female character's name starts with an S! Yay! So Megan, if you want to read Melanie's suggestion that's fine by me.

Anyone know if we can read two books per category? (On the slim chance that that could actually happen.)


message 22: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
One book per category called. But, if we all finish our books before the deadline we'll get a bonus point. :)


message 23: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments I'm 2/3 way through my book, so I'm sure I'll finish it tonight. :-)


message 24: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments Finished with the first category called.
Main Female Character starts with "S"
I read A Home for My Heart by Anne Mateer by Anne Mateer. The main female character's name is Sadie Sillsby.
Read from 5/6/14 - 5/8/14

Just three days until the next category is called! I'm excited to see what it'll be. :)


message 28: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments Me too! My husband and I were watching the news last night and the woman anchor had a first and last name that started with "S". I turned to him and said, "Hey, I could get two points for her!" Wouldn't have noticed her name before :-) Made me look forward to seeing what the next category is!

I'm the same way! I still notice books that would have worked for the first team challenge (Book Cover Bingo).


message 30: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments Here's the review of my "S" book, Surrender Bay by Denise Hunter and Samantha is the name of the main female character. Finished reading it on May 6th. I enjoyed it but was kinda disappointed, probably b/c it wasn't quite what I was expecting:

Sorry you were disappointed in your read, Rina. It's neat how the book had an allegory of what unconditional love looks like, though. :)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
We should have 6 points now for week one and are tied with team one, Royal Reading Trio! :)


message 33: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments I did appreciate the allegory, but it was so late in the story that it became clear.

Way to go team 5! Curious about the next category!

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
The next category was called!

Animal
Letter: A

I thought this category was going to be really tough, but I already found my book. Worth two points. :)


message 35: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments Finished my Animal "A" Book.
I read Love Gone to the Dogs by Margaret Daley by Margaret Daley.
It has a dog named "Arnold" in the story.

That was fast, Brittany! :) I'll be starting my book sometime next week.


message 37: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments It was only 166 pages and a fast read.


message 38: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
I started my book and I'm 8% done. Will finish it soon. :)


message 39: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments It sure took me a long time to find a horse photo I liked to add to this review. Much longer than it took to write the review!

Anyway, I was fortunate to discover that the book I read last night had a horse named Annie in it. :-) The Truth Seeker (O'Malley #3) by Dee Henderson http://rinasreading.blogspot.com/2014...

Way to go, Rina! I'll be finishing my book within the next day or so and I'll post my review Monday. Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone! :)

Glad that worked out! I ended up with two different books on my kindle that had dogs with names beginning with "A". I chose the shorter book of the two ;-)

The next category was called: Color - Letter: N

Since covers count, I'll be reading Here to Stay (Where Love Begins #2) by Melissa Tagg (it has a navy blue color). It'll only be worth one point, but I can't think of a way to get two points for this week. Too hard! :)


message 44: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments I will be going for navy blue also. I will be reading A Promise to Protect by Liz Johnson , which has a lot of navy on it. Wish I could get a bonus because there is a Navy seal in the book! ;-)


message 45: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
Oooohhh, I wish that would count for a bonus too. ;) I read that book and thought it was great! :)


message 46: by Brittany (new)

Brittany | 958 comments I finished my book for Color & N. Loved it!
Color was navy blue
Read A Promise to Protect by Liz Johnson
Read from 5/26 - 5/28

message 47: by Rina (new)

Rina | 48 comments We have until Thursday right? I do hope one of the books I read on the planes this weekend will work. I'm back in the States for the next two months so I should have more time for reading and getting caught up on reviews. :-)


message 48: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9504 comments Mod
Yes, we have until Thursday night Pacific Time.

I'll be posting my review soon. I decided to read Blur by Steven James instead, since I didn't have the time yet to read Here To Stay.
