I did some research, but I haven't decided on what books I'm going to read yet.

Here are some books I'm really interested in:
The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand My Name Is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout Crazy by Han Nolan Good as Gone by Amy Gentry

And here are some I'm not sure about yet:
Crazy Rich Asians (Crazy Rich Asians #1) by Kevin Kwan Crazy Good (Crazy Good, #1) by Rachel Robinson A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1) by Patrick Rothfuss

I didn't manage to find anything that interested me for violet, but I found something for the other categories at least.

Looks good! I'm considering reading Crazy Good as well, but I'll probably end up reading Crazy by Han Nolan instead, since it seems more like my kind of book.

message 32: by Johanna (new)

Johanna (johanna_e) | 174 comments Have you managed to find any books for Violet? I saw that Vanessa had one, but other than that I haven't seen any. Maybe we should pass on that one, what do you think?

I found one Violet but it's in spanish edition and I don't know if it counts and besides I already read it. We can choose another word or just don't do the Violet word? Since there is none other book with that word


message 34: by Vanessa Marie (new)

Vanessa Marie Liers (vanessa_liers) | 76 comments There are a few books that I want to read that have the word Violet in the title. I'll list them here, if anyone is interested.

Living Violet (The Cambion Chronicles, #1) by Jaime Reed Violet Ink by Rebecca Westcott Violet is Blue (Hothouse #1) by Tawny Stokes Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph

This book has Violet in the series title: Embrace (The Violet Eden Chapters, #1) by Jessica Shirvington

Haley (haleymadd) | 1272 comments I found these books for the categories if anyone wants to buddy read one with me?

The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord You Don't Know My Name (The Black Angel Chronicles #1) by Kristen Orlando Code Name Verity (Code Name Verity, #1) by Elizabeth Wein

Hi! That looks awesome. Could you please add the books to the spreadsheet? I think they'll fill that category.

So can we have the BR for Code Name Verity ?You can choose the date..I will be fine with it:)


message 40: by Johanna (new)

Johanna (johanna_e) | 174 comments Hi everyone!

We seem to be able to fill the Violet category, which I thought would be almost impossible at first, so that's really good!

It would also be great if everyone could add their books to the spreadsheet, so we can see if it's any category that we might not be able to fill and get a new word instead.


message 41: by — Massiel (new)

— Massiel (rollitosdecanela) | 2313 comments @Johanna Okay, I'll do it
@Nivedita Of course! We can start it after I finish with Speak, I'll sent you a message when I finish it :)

If you are still interested in doing a buddy read for Embrace, I can start it tomorrow.


message 43: by Haley (new)

Haley (haleymadd) | 1272 comments I won't be able to start tomorrow, but sunday I can :)


message 44: by Haley (new)

Haley (haleymadd) | 1272 comments Vanessa I would love to buddy read What Light by Jay Asher with you if you want!


message 45: by — Massiel (new)

— Massiel (rollitosdecanela) | 2313 comments So... I'm a little confused. There's a "Book that doesn't fit current key words"... It means every other book I read counts? That doesn't have the key words, of course


message 46: by Vanessa Marie (new)

Vanessa Marie Liers (vanessa_liers) | 76 comments @Haley Sunday for Embrace works for me. When were you thinking of starting What Light, I'm good to start any day.

message 50: by Jeanine (new)

Jeanine Carstairs (daechwita) | 967 comments Guys! I have a question about our spreadsheet :) The books / team members per keyword is limited to four. I just finished The School for Good and Evil for "good". Can I still write a review and include it in the review thread?
