Review thread: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

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.

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Books I want to read:


message 3: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Does anyone have a preference as to which number they want? I vote 30.


message 4: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Also, I have a suggestion as to how we should go about this. Again, this is just a suggestionso we can take it or leave it.
I think we should take a guess as we post our reviews as this is usually updated more than once a day. That way, we have more of a chance of getting the title/quote. If, however, the thread has not been updated by the time another person posts a review, I think we should hold the second guess until the mods have confirmed the first one. Does this make sense?

message 16: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments I was just about to post here that I am going to go ahead and request it. It's like you read my mind.:)


message 17: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments I think the puzzle is only posted on the review thread, but if we want I can post new puzzles at the end of my first post along with what we've solved for easy access. Once we complete it, I can delete it and post the new one. Otherwise, we can just check the review thread.


message 18: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments That's ok Jackie. U already posted the review thread here on the top so everyone could just look at review thread. Thanks for all your hard work. I'm so excited to start. I plan to read at least 23 books this month. I was on fun last month and read 18 and the month and in May I was in a serious team and I read 30 so I know I can do it. I went to the library last week and requested most of my GBRs books. I'm only missing 1 but so far I've got 12 of my planned to read books.


message 19: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Nice job! I think I'll read 15, but I'll try and do more. Don't know I'll do 23, but we'll see.:)

Remi (remivfoliage) aaaaah!!! I'm here. Sorry that I didnt see this.


message 22: by Remi (new)

Remi (remivfoliage) I think I can probably read 15 books in August.


message 23: by Cinthia (new)

That's good :) the rules for a serious group I Think is 12 or more so you will be fine.


message 24: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments We just got our board posted. It looks like we have a one word title.


message 25: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments That looks tough.


message 26: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments True, but it might be easier since we're a serious team. Plus, I know my first book is a BR so that helps.


message 27: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments I still have 12 hrs before I can start ;( my first book is a BR too.. So That's at least 4 letters we can guess on the first day. :)


message 28: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Same! Ahh well, we will just have to step on it.:)


message 29: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments IMPULSE by ELLEN HOPKINS? Just a guess.


message 30: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments PERFECT by ELLEN HOPKINS?


message 31: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Good ideas. I will either start with Everneath or The Sword of Summer, both buddy reads that can help with those guesses.


message 32: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments Awesome. I'm reading everneath too. I will also do My lady Jane.


message 33: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Let's try E and S first.


message 34: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments I like that!!! Our odds will be better.


message 35: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments Yes. Whoever posts the first book then could guess that and then we will wait to see what the mods say.


message 36: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Based on how those letters pan out, the next person can try and make a guess if they fit with your theories. How does that sound.


message 37: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments Yep. I'm glad we have a plan going in instead of going blind. Well... we r going blind cuz we have to guess lol.


message 38: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments I'm so glad that we are all checked in now. This will be so much smoother.

Yes, but I think of having a plan and having to guess more of going in partially blind. And, if I may, I'm going in literally blind as I can't see. haha:) Sorry, I couldn't help it.


message 40: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments Haha..


message 41: by Remi (new)

Remi (remivfoliage) it's really hard to guess. I don't have any TBR book with 7 letters in the title.


message 42: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments So maybe this is a dumb question but say we guess E and there are 3 E's. We get all the E's right?

Yep.:)


message 44: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments 40 more minutes.. The suspense is killing me.


message 45: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Same! I'm going to try and fly through Everneath. Need to sleep, but arg! It sucks because I use GR time instead of my own but technically I could have started.


message 46: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments have my first three books ready to go.


message 47: by Cinthia (last edited Aug 01, 2016 04:11AM) (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments I finished What Really Happened in Peru (The Bane Chronicles, #1) by Cassandra Clare I'm almost done with My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand but wanted to do a quick read...

I'm gonna guess I see what happens...


message 48: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments Well that sucks. My guess was way off:(


message 49: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia | 6299 comments Just finished Lady Jane BR but I don't know if I should post and guess letter or wait til maybe someone has a clue with the letter we already have?


message 50: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Who is the author?
