This is where you request what puzzle you'd like, post your reviews, and ask for the letter(s) you'd like removed for your review. When you think you know the answer to the book hangman, you post your guess here too. There's no penalty for guessing an incorrect letter or title, but you do need to have at least one review/book posted for your current puzzle before making a guess and you only get one guess per book reviewed for that puzzle.

Example post:

Comes a Horseman by Robert Liparulo
Finished 2-4-2017

Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
Pages: 615
Letter: R
Bonus: E

(Letter R for "R"obert (author) & I get the bonus because the book is over 500 pages)


**Remember, if your book is over 500 pages, you can request a bonus letter, which can be any letter in the alphabet**

Tiffany, unless I'm missing something, that book can only be used for the letters O,S,G,M,A,M, not T. Since it has to be the first letter of the title, series, or authors' first/last name. Which letter would you like?


message 20: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany Marin (tiffers919) | 905 comments I thought T worked since the word The is in the title

Holly (hollymag321) | 119 comments Book - Maybe It's You
Author - Candace Calvert
Rating - 4 1/2 Stars
Review - I really like that the author focused a book on Sloane. She was a not so nice supporting character in the first two books. At the end of the second book you knew she was at a turning point. Loved the story line and everything that came out about Sloane's childhood.

I really enjoyed the story as well. It moved at a great pace and was interesting. I felt like the overall message of the story was told extremely well and will relate to many people.

Love it... and wonder if we might see Harper in the next story!

Holly (hollymag321) | 119 comments Book - Murder on the Moor
Author - Julianna Deering
Rating - 4 Stars
Review - Overall I enjoyed the story. I really like Drew and Madeline. They make a dynamic mystery solving couple with excellent chemistry.

The story moved slowly for me through most of it. The story did kick into high gear toward the end and I could hardly put it down. I had an idea of who was behind everything but didn't see how it actually played out.

I feel like the author takes her time developing the story to give readers a chance to really know the characters.

Enjoyable story and I hope to read more of Drew's mystery solving ways!

You're welcome. The letters have to be either the first letter of the title, series, or author's first or last name. S & A don't seem to fit that. Also, I'd remove all the scoring part, to make it easier for Melanie to update...if you can do that.
