Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12212 comments I'm super excited too!! I went solo in July's challenge, so I'm rested and ready to go crazy reading this month. Lol ;)


message 6: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12212 comments My first book will be good for letters C, G, K, and B. It's also a buddy read, so I'll pick a vowel. I'm thinking letter C for the book and then bonus letter E. Sound good?


message 7: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Gunter | 2635 comments Hi everyone! :) I'm really excited to take part this month! I haven't decided yet what I'm planning to read, but I'll try and come up with a list :)

I mostly added it to my list since it's the GBR from another group. It does sound interesting though. ^-^

It's worse when you have to find a YA book for that extra point. I'd keep forgetting or get fed up and just submit a one point book. :/


message 20: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12212 comments Finished my first book! I'll go post as soon as possible. I think I know our current puzzle, so I'll put a guess in as soon as Abbie responds. :)

message 30: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12212 comments It's possible that our current puzzle is "Afterworlds" by Scott Westerfeld. Just going off of the empty puzzle...it fits. lol ;)

Thanks!! Do you want me to request/make the thread?


message 39: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12212 comments What puzzle number do you guys want to do next? I'm pretty positive our current one is The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love and put in the guess.

message 41: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12212 comments That was the correct book - Abbie just confirmed. :D It was an easy one! :D I guess I'll go with puzzle number 1, since Abbie is online right now and that way we can get it up? Hope that's okay...

Definitely waiting...as I've been wrong twice now with my initial thought at our empty puzzles. ;) Just wanted to throw it out there so I wouldn't forget the title. O.o

I never knew you could lose points for an incorrect guess, but I know you can't make a guess until a book has been read/posted for the current puzzle.

I should go ask Abbie then to make sure. I would never want to make a guess that I wasn't 100% sure on if that was the case. :/
