Karen Barber | 10142 comments Signing in. Hi all. It was nice to get back to a team in January - looking forward to chatting with you all.


message 3: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments Looking forward to it too, Karen! I love challenges where you have to fit everything into categories. It's fun trying to figure out what you can read.


message 4: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10142 comments I'm just trying to look through some of my ARCs and TBR pile. I'm setting up a shelf of what I'd like to try and read for the Feb challenge. If you want to buddy up for any, let me know.


message 5: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments I do the same thing where I plan out what I'm gonna read for the entire month so I'm never left wondering what my next book will be.

❤ Aly ❤ | 3578 comments I'm trying to plan my first book.. still trying to finish stuff up for this month


message 16: by Iris (new)

Iris (purplexlady) | 690 comments Hi everyone :)
I'm trying to plan my books for this month, don't know what I'll read yet, but there's still a bit of time left :)


message 17: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments Hi Irish! I might start reading my book for the challenge a little later. I'm reading a book that I can't seem to get through.


message 18: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10142 comments I messed up with a NetGalley ARC-ended up with a 5 book series instead of one book (to review by 8th Feb). Not quite sure what I'll start with this month.


message 19: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10142 comments One day to go...looking forward to this one. Think I'll start with The Raven Boys tomorrow.


message 20: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments So what are the books we are suppose to be reading?


message 21: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments Carolyn wrote: "So what are the books we are suppose to be reading?"

I've listed the categories at the top of our thread for our convenience. The books have to fit any of those categories.


message 22: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10142 comments I 'started' the new Sarah Pinborough and have read 0 pages so far. It's got an average of 4.5 rating, so would it work for the Feb challenge?


message 23: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments I'm gonna read Essential Maps for the Lost. It will fit in the E category.

Yep!


message 25: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10142 comments Thought so...I've been desperate to read it, but once I start I think I'll find it hard to put down.


message 26: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10142 comments About halfway through Raven Boys-need a curl up and read day I think!


message 27: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments I'm pretty sure I did good at school today. More reading later. I read 92 pages at school today, so it's a good start.


message 28: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments I like to read multiple books at once. Currently have 2 on Kindle and one audiobook.
Written in My Own Heart's Blood: I'll be reading this on and off for the whole month.
Two Graves
Alice in Wonderland on audio. This will probably be the first I finish.


message 29: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments I read a little bit more this afternoon. Page 124.


message 30: by Iris (new)

Iris (purplexlady) | 690 comments I'm reading Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver... don't know how I feel about it, but I just read a bit over 100 pages


message 31: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10142 comments I found it odd, until you get to the end.


message 32: by ❤ Aly ❤ (new)

❤ Aly ❤ | 3578 comments Well I posted my first review earlier today.

It may not have been the highest page count. I couldn't view all the other versions when I posted.


message 33: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments I'm so close to being done. I'm hoping I can post today.


message 34: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments What would Wink, Poppy, Midnight fall in for the category?

Abby | 5454 comments Carolyn wrote: "What would Wink, Poppy, Midnight fall in for the category?"

message 40: by Abby (new)

Abby | 5454 comments You guys are making me feel slow. I've been running childcare for an event all weekend, so I'm a bit behind, but will be free from that come Monday until 2 weeks from now when I have to do it all again.


message 41: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn Elaine | 2257 comments I'm slowly trying to get through yet another book. This one might take me awhile.
