Shanna_redwind | 654 comments I'm looking for a spot to put Magic Gifts. I know I had a place for it, but I left my edit window open for a long time, then it didn't end up saving. I've been reading through the tasks, but there are so many this season. Was there somewhere to put a book that had a team of 2 authors?

Wayne | 1288 comments You could also use it for 15.4 - Summer of Love, 1 book option: Fantasy MPG for Book 1, "Magic" in the title matches with Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band for Book 2.

Cat (cat_uk) | 2211 comments Help! I've got some books I'm struggling to fit in:

NPCs
Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal
Wytches, Vol. 1

Any thoughts?!


message 8: by Julia (new)

Julia (julia103) | 1612 comments Wytches, Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder works for Task 10.5 or 25.7 Option 1 (author initial in given phrases).

Wytches and NPCs both work for Task 15.4, Book 1 (genre=fantasy)

All three work for Task 15.1, Book 1 (first in series)

Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal works for Task 20.5 Option 1 (Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story)

Ms Marvel by G. Willow Wilson fits Task 25.8 Option 1 (author last name matches a president's last name)

Wytches and NPCs both fit Task 25.11 Option 1 (W=West, N=North)

Cat (cat_uk) | 2211 comments Thanks Julia - some good suggestions that I shall put to use, with a bit of reshuffling elsewhere!

Sarah (colinsmom) | 66 comments I was wondering if either of these books work within any of the challenges. The books I was wondering about are: Unlikely Loves: 43 Heartwarming True Stories from the Animal Kingdom by Jennifer S. Holland AND Dreamland by Sarah Dessen. Thank you for your help I really appreciate it.


message 11: by Andrea (new)

Andrea Dreamland works for 10.5 - author initials fit


message 12: by Julia (new)

Julia (julia103) | 1612 comments Unlikely Loves: 43 Heartwarming True Stories from the Animal Kingdom fits:
Task 10.7: The number 43 is on the cover.
Task 15.3, Book 1: author first initial J
Task 20.4, Option 3: main page genre Science Nature
Task 25.3, Option 3: title/subtitle letters ULHTSFTAK - anagram words include FAULT and SHAFT
Task 25.5, Option 2: does not have any of the main page genres listed
Task 30.7, Option 1: the letters in JUNETEENTH are in title/subtitle/author name

Dreamland fits:
Task 5.9: main page genre Romance
Task 10.5 (see above post by Andrea)
Task 20.3, Option B: more than 1000 reviews on GR
Task 25.7, Option 1: author initials fit


message 13: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (colinsmom) | 66 comments One more book, I'm sorry to do this but does anyone know where Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks would fit? Thank you in advance.


message 14: by Celeste (new)

Celeste (celesteryr) | 371 comments For Task 5.6 - Finding Wisdom
Does the author Sophocles work?

The male variant at the bottom of the page, 'sophos' is the beginning root of sopho-[cle]-s. It keeps the definition 'sophos = wisdom' true as Sophocles means "glorious wisdom".

Two immediately spring to mind.

10.7 requires a number written out in letters, so if you haven't got something else for that, it would work.

30.13 option two "wedding of my daughter" needs an author who's initials can be found in MRANDMRS, so it would fit there, too.


message 16: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 7512 comments any thoughts on Allegedly (I've already done the 15 point challenge it would fit into)


message 17: by Bryony (new)

Bryony (bryony46) | 362 comments What about 30.13, option C, book one. That requires a book published in 2017 that you've been looking forward to, so it might apply if you've been anticipating this book's publication?


message 18: by Cat (new)

Cat (cat_uk) | 2211 comments Isn't Jackson a president? 25.8 option 1?


message 19: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 7512 comments Ohhh thanks Cat!
