Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments Hello!


message 4: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments We already got our first 5 words, so I made a spreadsheet for tracking, and we can start planning what everyone is going to read. I also added an "on hold" section in case someone reads a book that doesn't fit a word at the moment, but it can come to fit something later. It's here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/...

message 9: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments I really want to read Big Little Lies, do you wanna set a buddy read for it?


message 10: by Tayane (last edited May 25, 2017 01:08PM) (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments I was also planning to read Perfect (book 3 on the Pretty Little Liars series) for "little". I need to look for some books for the other words.


message 11: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (ladygator71) | 118 comments A buddy read for Big Little Lies would be great! Let me know

I also have Perfect but haven't read any of the others yet.


message 12: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments Great! Can we set it for the 3rd? I'm not sure how the beginning of the month is going to be for me hahaha.

Pretty Little Liars is really fun and quick to read, you could read the first one for "little" as well if you feel like it :)

Lesa Divine | 1490 comments Woohoo I found my team lol. Hey everyone.

Welcome!! Hahaha


message 15: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (ladygator71) | 118 comments The 3rd is good for me.

Let me know how you want to set it up. Honestly, I've never really done an actual buddy read before.


message 16: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (ladygator71) | 118 comments Question. If we buddy read Big Little Lies that knocks out two of the "little" category correct?

Yes :)

Well, I'm gonna ask the mods to restart the thread for the BR (if it doesn't exist yet, I'll start one on my own), and we comment about the book on this thread as we read, talking about what we're thinking, sharing thoughts etc. I'll link you the thread when it's done.


message 18: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (ladygator71) | 118 comments Sounds good


message 19: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments Here's the link to the Big Little Lies thread: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Now we just need to way 'til the 3rd :D


message 20: by Sophie (new)

Sophie Katrani (sophiekatrani) | 229 comments Jennifer we could BR Pretty Little Liars together if you are interested. Let me know.


message 21: by Lesa (new)

Lesa Divine | 1490 comments I think I might start off with pretty little liars too. Going to library tomorrow going to look around.

message 24: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments And don't forget to update the spreadsheet with the books you're going to read.

message 33: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments If we read what we've put on the spreadsheet, we already have "life" and "little" filled, so we just need "hot", "cure" and "thing".


message 34: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments Hello, TJ!


message 35: by Jordan (new)

Jordan | 95 comments Checking in!


message 36: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments Welcome, Jordan!


message 37: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments Michalina and Jennifer, do you want to BR White Hot Kiss (The Dark Elements, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout ?


message 38: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (ladygator71) | 118 comments Sounds good! When did you want to start this one?


message 39: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments What about the 5th?


message 40: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (ladygator71) | 118 comments That will work 😊


message 41: by Michalina (new)

Michalina (bookovelove) | 102 comments I'm also happy with that :)


message 42: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments Alright, I'll ask for it :D


message 43: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments Hello! :)


message 44: by T.J. (new)

T.J. Burns | 2720 comments Here's a bit of interesting info for this challenge:

I asked the mods: "I know different forms of the word count, like for "hot", we can use "hots", "hotty," "hotplate," etc. Can we also use the word if the key word is part of another word, like "shot" or "photo"?

And the answer is YES!

Also the author's name counts, so the group buddy read by Terry SchHOTt would count for "hot":

https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

My daughter and I want to read a book by Kathryn Littlewood, so that would count for "little" too.


message 45: by Tayane (new)

Tayane Cristie (taycristie) | 2865 comments That's great! We have already set all the books for "little", "life" and "thing" at the moment, and I think we need only one for "hot" and two or three for "cure" (I'm on my phone so I can't check it out, google docs don't open on it xD).


message 46: by T.J. (new)

T.J. Burns | 2720 comments Just thought I'd mention it -- we could get words again because selection is random. Hope we get a wild card or two... :D

Wildcard would be really helpful! "The" too hahaha.


message 48: by T.J. (last edited May 31, 2017 02:27PM) (new)

T.J. Burns | 2720 comments Yes! I've got some "the" books to read!

I've added you all as friends!


message 50: by Sophie (new)
