Abby | 5454 comments Ways to earn points:

• For every book read, you and your team will earn one point.

• For every buddy read you participate in, you and your team will earn one point.

• For every title or quote guessed correctly, your team will earn 4 points.

Rules:

• Books must be read from the 1st of August to the 31st of August 2016.

• Books must be at least 100 pages in length, 150 pages for middle grade books, and 300 pages for poetry books/books written in verse.

• Buddy read must take place in our group to count.

• Letters guessed have to be the first letter in the book title / author's name to count, unless it's a bonus guess (from taking part in a buddy read for the book you read and reviewed.)

• Letter guesses have to be based on the English title. (However, you can still read the book in any language you like.)

• Your team have to read at least 1 book before making a guess, and you only get one guess per book read.

Abby | 5454 comments The Hangman challenge is my fav! We had a blast with it last year.


message 8: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Scott | 2393 comments I've never done it before :) I think I did some of the challenges last year, but not this one!


message 9: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments Yeah, it was August of last year. I guess they do it every year for the Mega Month Challenge.

message 17: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments I think I've got the first one, ladies! It's Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson. Shall I go ahead and make the guess?

Yay! Sure, you go ahead and make the guess and then we choose a new number. I'm right now in the middle of two books, tomorrow I'll have one of them finished for sure and it's a BR.


message 19: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments I'll put the # on the thread too. How's 100 sound?


message 20: by Laura (new)

Laura | 620 comments I've finished my first book and I've guessed 2 letters ^-^


message 21: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments We get a free guess! What letter should we do?


message 22: by Laura (new)

Laura | 620 comments Abby wrote: "We get a free guess! What letter should we do?"

I don't know... maybe a vowel? I chose 2 already for this book so anyone else choose :)


message 23: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments Looks like we're the only two commenting on this thread anyway, Laura. I'd go with E, since it's a common vowel and not many books have it in the title.

Go ahead!


message 25: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Scott | 2393 comments Reading my first book at the moment, but it's quite a big one :) It's a buddy read though, and so is my next one!


message 26: by Laura (new)

Laura | 620 comments I finished my second book ( Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3) by Maggie Stiefvater ) and I'm going to guess now 2 more letters ^-^


message 27: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments Great job guessing, Noella!

I'll be finishing a book tonight, review will probably go up tomorrow. Buddy read so I get 2 letters!


message 28: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments How's everyone doing?


message 29: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Scott | 2393 comments I planned my month terribly, and I'm still chugging through my massive book. I'm starting another one now though so I can catch up, and it's a buddy read, so I do plan to try and catch up! You guys are doing really well though, I'm sorry for not helping :)


message 30: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments I do the same thing, Victoria. Have to read those massive books sometime, challenge or not. Just good to know you're not MIA. :)
