1 - 30 November 2016

This challenge is to see if you can find all the words listed below within your reading for the month. You do not need to preselect a level.

The maximum number of words for each book is THREE. There is no page limit.

0-3 words : better luck next time
3-5 words : warming up
6-8 words : getting hotter
9-10 words : CHAMPION hunter!

November
cream
film
helpless
regret
repair
rinse
substance
surround
three
throat


Bonus
For our over-achievers who just need some extra words because the above weren't enough...

Unlike with the 10 words above - you must find the EXACT word to claim these bonus words, and I try to make them hard.

ad hoc (or ad-hoc)
belligerent
obsolete
pedal
squalid




To prove that you have found the word, please quote the page, percentage or LOC (Kindle) and include the sentence in which it appears.

Audiobooks are allowed so long as you can quote the page/%/LOC and the sentence. (Eg Using whispersync or finding that sentence in some other way.)

You must find the actual word or the word's root word must be at the core with the meaning essentially remaining the same ~ just turned into a noun, adjective, adverb etc. No prefixes or hyphenated extensions. An extension is allowed where it is often the accepted spelling eg goodbye or good-bye.

Where a word has more than one meaning, either meaning may be used. Eg coast (beachfront) or coast (moving without effort) etc

Please post all entries, updates, final posts and questions in this thread.


Examples for 'Reversal'
Reverse - Laser Visions √ 15 May
p50-51 : There were a couple of bands Tam had that this person didn't, but none in the reverse.

Reversing - Sunset √ 10 Jul
p204 : Reversing his grip on his katana, he held it out to Nick.

Jane (PS) | 19626 comments Tips for finding words - courtesy of Jennifer ♔Princess Penguin♔

Using Google books:
~Go here https://books.google.com/bkshp?hl=en&...
~Type in the name of your book
~Select your book
~On the left about midway down there will be a search bar, type your word in there.

Couple of things you need to know...
~you need to check every variety of the word you want so, let's say GROUP doesn't show up you would also need to type in GROUPS/ED/ING
~Unfortunately, 99% of the books on Google does not list page numbers (at least in my experience)

Using Amazon:
~You search for your book
~Once on your book page make sure you are on a version that is paperback or hardcover (Kindle editions will not work)
~On the left there will be a picture of your book and it should have "Search Inside" above it
~Click on the book and the search bar will be inside

You will not need to search separately for plurals but you will still need to search separately for -ed and -ing


***
You can also search for words in all the books loaded on your Kindle.

On the home page, use the 'search' function.
~ type in the word and select 'search my items'.

10/10

·CREAM - Norse Code location 729, 21% (11/5/16)
"That was mean, by the way, betraying me and cutting my head near off. But nicely done. Looks like I managed to teach you something after all." He took a sip from his mug. Whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles clung to his moustache.
·FILM - Right location 2072, 68% (11/16/16)
"To clarify, you mean filming yourself having sex with Sawyer?" "Uh, yeah. What else would I mean by a sex tape?" I dump a handful of chocolate chips into the blender and start peeling a banana.
·HELPLESS - Second Grave on the Left location 4170, 76% (11/25/16)
He laughed then cringed in helpless agony. He'd been in surgery for-like-ever, then in recovery, but they put him in a room because, despite the amount of blood loss, his wounds were no longer life threatening. "You here to get into my pants?" he asked.
·REGRET - The Unleashing location 2689, 52% (11/29/16)
He forced himself to pull away, both of them panting. Vig looked deep into her brown eyes. He wanted to make sure they understood each other completely, because he didn't want regrets later.
·REPAIR - The Unleashing location 5008, 97% (11/29/16)
The last time this happened, she'd let it sneak out that Yardley's nasal passages had collapsed and had to be repaired due to her "tragic" cocaine use. But the truth was that Yardley's nose had collapsed because it had been completely demolished by the ax head of a blood-soaked demon.
·RINSE - Right location 1724, 57% (11/16/16)
Sawyer rinses the razor under the tap and then brings it back to his face and I am downright mesmerized. I clear my throat and shift on the marble countertop.
·SUBSTANCE - Bedeviled & Beguiled location 982, 24% (11/20/16)
The demon was covered in black, grainy looking leather skin that seemed to ooze some kind of oily sunstance which made him look all shiny and wet. His flat, wide head was about eighty percent forehead. The rest of his facial geography was squashed into the remaining twenty percent.
·SURROUND - Not So Little Green Man location 651, 31% (11/6/16)
A tinkling laugh silenced him, and he returned his attention to Jassa. To Jassa, now seated inside the enclosure and surrounded by the yapping beasts. "Oh, Vroe, look at them!" They clamored all over her, tails flicking and tongues licking every inch of her skin the things reached.
·THREE - Poking the Vamp location 1522, 73% (11/1/16)
"Pretend we're flying a fighter jet, right? Well, this little bit of mojo is the eject button." Her gaze slipped over each of them. "Four corners on the count of three."
·THROAT - The Reaper's Mate location 351, 38% (11/7/16)
"How long have you been stalking me?" She struggles against my hold, and damn if her fight doesn't turn me on more. The spanking I'd pondered earlier resurfaces. "Stalking you?" I slide one hand to her delicate throat. "Just tonight."

BONUS
1/5

·AD HOC (or AD-HOC) -
·BELLIGERENT -
·OBSOLETE -
·PEDAL - Cash Remington and the Missing Heiress location 712, 78% (11/21/16)
I yank on the parking brake. It engages as I stomp on the brake pedal. The car comes to a screeching halt only inches from the steep drop-off.
·SQUALID -

CARRYOVERS
2/5
October
·EARSPLITTING - Born Sinner location 757, 18% (11/13/16)
I thrash to consciousness surrounded by heat. An earsplitting, animal-like screech pierces the night, ripping it wide open into a black expanse full of silver stars. No, not stars. Eyes. And there is no animal being slaughtered. The screaming is coming from me.
·QUIRKY -
·STEADFAST -
August
·ACROBAT - Born Sinner location 321, 8% (11/13/16)
Lily isn't the sweet, dainty princess I thought she was. This girl is something out of a Marvel movie, complete with blade wielding and acrobatics. I've never seen her move like that. I've never seen anyone move like that.
