Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4973 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.

All the titles you have to guess have been numbered. The numbers you choose will determine which titles you get.


message 9: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4973 comments First one:

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ * _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ By _ _ _ * _ _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Last name of the person is hyphenated.

PNJ (EmergencyRN) | 53 comments Hey guys! Sorry I am late in checking in but have been quite ill. If someone could message me when we need things that would be great. I've had a stroke and it's hard to follow chat, but I am an extremely rapid reader. Happy reading all and glad to be here!

No problem! Hope you're feeling better soon! Let us know what you need from us as well, or feel free to send me a message if that's easier for you! ☺

Abbie - will Ashwag still be joining us?


message 17: by Danielle ♥ (last edited Aug 01, 2016 07:21PM) (new)

Danielle ♥ (daniellewaltz) | 2219 comments I just finished by first book and guessed an E! They haven't responded yet, but this is what we have so far, minus the E:

S _ r _ _ _ _ _ _ * S _ _ _ _ _ _ _ By _ _ _ * _ _ _ _ _ r - _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _


message 18: by Brooke (last edited Aug 01, 2016 11:40PM) (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4973 comments I have an E, G, K, and C to play, waiting for the Es to be added first. hoping we can guess it after that point.


message 19: by Brooke (new)

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4973 comments S _ r _ _ _ _ _ _ * S _ _ _ _ _ _ _ By _ _ _ * _ _ _ _ er - _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

the vowel has betrayed us.

Brooke ♥booklife4life♥ (booklife4life) | 4973 comments oh forgot to say, the second book is a BR so i can pick a bonus letter :D i'll probably go with U if i can't solve it with the O/I

What all have you read so far? i don't like to waste books, so i've been just doing one review every day and seeing if i can guess off that since we have been down 2 players.


ɑƨħŵɑɡ ♥Team Magnus Damora FOREVER♥ (unheard) | 2446 comments I finished one book on the 1st but it won't count since I've started it before. Now I am close to finishing two books one is BR..

What all have you read so far? ..."


So far I have read My Best Friend's Exorcism by Grady Hendrix , Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (Harry Potter, #8) by John Tiffany , & Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley . I am currently reading This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1) by Victoria Schwab & With Malice by Eileen Cook & I'm looking for a buddy to read With Malice with me for more points/guesses, if any of you are interested in it. Unfortunately With malice doesn't count for the Spelling Bee because there are no W's in "Mega Month Challenge" ☹ but I really want to read it, everyone on Booktube is talking about it.

Hi there! Welcome! Hope your tryouts went well! Are you going to be able to read around 12 books this month, with the dance stuff and the convention next week? We're really going to need your help!

Danielle ♥ (daniellewaltz) | 2219 comments @Ashwag, for the review you just posted for Mercer Girls by Libbie Hawker by Libbie Hawker can you guess L for that, so I can guess M for With Malice by Eileen Cook (I just posted my review)?? The only other available letter for me to guess would be W, and I think M is a better guess than W ☺
