This one could fit B-9 - read a book written by Goodreads Author. But I've banked it for now. That task is a miss task, so we will wait a bit.

Banked... Might work for H-2 or B-9. A bit confusing because of multiple authors.

I agree, I wasn't sure what to suggest, since there are so many authors. At least it works for A-1, if nothing else.

You haven't read for D-5 (fantasy) yet so I used it there. Can you please check what you've read so far in our tracking tab and try to read for what you haven't yet? Today we get the last batch of tasks for battleships and books can't be brought to Olympic Games so if we can have as few banked books as possible it would be great. New tasks will be available shortly and you can check them to see what you can read.

I've been looking at Olympic Games events and there's one that is suited exactly for you :) More will be known later in the week but I can't say more for now.

I just read a fantasy book... Planned it like that. Don't have any more paranormal books, I think...

The Serpent's Shadow - Rick Riordan
Task: Fantasy

@Gea The only reason I read a bunch of books that didn't fit the tasks was because they were the only books that I had with me at the time. Better to read and bank than to only read, right?


message 45: by Gea (new)

Gea (gea89) | 1480 comments Yes, you're right :) I used all of your books and two were left, one will be used for B-5 (setting mainland Europe) and another one will be used later when we get a counterpart for a miss task.

I didn't use your above book for paranormal as it was only shelved as such by 6 people

Wasn't sure if Paranormal > Ghost counted, therefore the questionmark. :)


message 48: by Gea (new)

Gea (gea89) | 1480 comments I wasn't either, but then went to the list of all genres and there performed a search for paranormal and it appeared separately and shelved by only 6 people :/

You have one Fantasy task you can still use and two YA ones. This also works for romance (one task left for you). Do you want to use it for fantasy or any of two other tasks?
