message 12: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments So I've got at least one book for every category but photography. #6 and #2 is easiest for me though. :)

How do you guys want to do this? Should we make a spreadsheet? Divide categories? Claim as we go?


Mrs. Allen 107 (The Kansan Reader) (thekansanreader) I will have my planning up hopefully after memorial weekend.

KK. :)


message 15: by ~ Giulia ~ (new)

~ Giulia ~ | 689 comments I think I have no books for #6
Might have something for #3

Can we switch books around once the review is posted and the category is closed?

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Also I just realized I never posted the answer to your question that I got from the mods. So here it is:

If you have a category, say category 1 closed, and you have a book that would fit it better and one from that category you can replace it with, yes. You can't switch books from a category that's closed if you have nothing to replace it with.

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Only about 24 hours left till the challenge begins? What is everyone starting off with?

I'll be staring with Red Rising (Red Rising, #1) by Pierce Brown (#2) and Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts (#6)

I think I'll start with The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman for #3


Mrs. Allen 107 (The Kansan Reader) (thekansanreader) I'm starting off with The V Girl by Mya Robarts for Plus one.


message 23: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments **Remember that three books must be read in order for a category to be considered complete.**


message 25: by Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) (last edited May 31, 2017 10:33PM) (new)

Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments I'm going to start off with Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

That will work for #3 A book Published in June.


Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments So right now looks like we have:

#1- 1 book (Jamie reading)

#3-2 Books (Myself and Bookbuyer)

#6-

#23-

So we still need:

#1- 2 more Books needed

#3- 1 more Book needed

#6- 3 Books needed

#23- 3 Books needed


message 27: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Does anybody HAVE a book for #23? It seems like it could be a hard one so we should pass on it early if we can.


Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments I'm trying to find some lists with photography but all I'm finding so far are Non-Fiction type photography books. Maybe someone else has some ideas? If not maybe we should pass. But we might get it again later on.


Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments Also I'm going to read Pointe, Claw by Amber J. Keyser for #6.
Read a new release (Jan-June 2017)


Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments So update on our status is:

#1- 1 book (Jamie reading)

#3-2 Books (Myself and Bookbuyer)

#6- 1 Book (Myself)

#23-

So we still need:

#1- 2 more Books needed

#3- 1 more Book needed

#6- 2 Books needed

#23- 3 Books needed


Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments I found at least one good list for books on photography.

https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/2...

If I find more I will post more links.

Colleen you accidentally wrote #1 instead of #2 in your tracking thread. ^-^


message 33: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (last edited Jun 01, 2017 01:27AM) (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Also I will definitely be reading these books so you can add these ones as well to the list. :)

Red Rising (Red Rising, #1) by Pierce Brown (#2)
Royal Bastards by Andrew Shvarts (#6)
The Burning Sky (The Elemental Trilogy, #1) by Sherry Thomas (#2)
Paranormalcy (Paranormalcy, #1) by Kiersten White (#2)
Now I Rise (The Conqueror's Saga, #2) by Kiersten White (#3)

I don't know which one you originally counted so there might be a double here. :/


message 34: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments So I've started Red Rising (4%). I'm hoping to get half done today and also at least half done of Royal Bastards.


message 35: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments Thanks Colleen☺️


message 36: by ~ Giulia ~ (new)

~ Giulia ~ | 689 comments For now, I've only added the 2 books that Bookbuyer has already started, I'll add the others later.
Tell me if I've got something wrong :)

Looks good to me. :)


message 38: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Now we must need to know what Maya is reading. Hopefully she has something for photography. :)


message 39: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments I've started Red Winter (Red Winter Trilogy #1) by Annette Marie (3%) which I'll have to use for #2 as well. :/


Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments Ur welcome Jackie...I hope that was OK?!


message 41: by Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) (last edited Jun 01, 2017 09:12AM) (new)

Colleen (Colleensreadingadventures) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments That looks great Bookbuyer! I'm going to try to find some links for photography but that one list had quite a few books so I think we could probably find something in that if we want to keep it.

I own a few of the books on that list but none of them are books I really want to read so I have some if we're desperate but I'd prefer to pass if it comes to that. :/

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments ****#23 has been altered, you may now use books that have a photograph on the cover (this would include Polaroids, framed pictures, etc) or a book that involves photography.****

Lol...that makes sense!

YAY! Thank you! That should help a lot! :D

Courtney I found this list under Photography and since its been altered I was wondering if we could use books from this list?

message 48: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments That list seems to only include covers that have a lens flare, but not be about photography or have a photograph on the cover, so I don't think most of those would work.

Here are a couple of lists with books that should work: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/7...
