Team name ideas anyone?


message 12: by Stacey (new)

Stacey (boydsmom) | 317 comments To be honest I'm terrible at naming anything. No imagination or cleverness here. So hopefully someone else has some good ideas.

I am usually a better team member than captain, but I am okay to do it this time around if no one else wants to.

Hope you all are having a good holiday weekend --- at least those in the States. :)


message 13: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments I don't have any name ideas either.


message 14: by Amber (new)

Amber | 155 comments Team name ideas: The Bookworm, The Roaring Readers, The Book Beauties, Book Geeks, Quiet....I'm Reading

I'm not up for Captain this time around, I'm just getting back to GR and my RL schedule is messy right now.

Jade aka MrsTosh (mrstosh) | 938 comments Hi all,

Hope everyone had a nice weekend, it was a public holiday here in the UK yesterday so I got an extra day off work, but unfortunately, it rained all day ;(

Group Names - Using Ambers idea and tweaking it what about The Roarin9 Readers, Readin9 9irls or Readin9 9urus or just plain T9 or the Niners.

Rather not be captain but will if nobody else wants the job. I have quite a lot on at the moment so probably won't get on here every day.


message 17: by Louise (new)

Louise | 1111 comments Like Readin9 9irls Or Readin9 9urus.

Can Captain if needed rolls are @6am UK time so can post roll before heading off to work.

I like those 2 options as well!

Louise, if you would like to be Captain, feel free. :) I don't mind doing it, but I will not be up to roll until 6am Eastern, so that puts it around noon your time, correct?

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments I like Readin9 9irls.

Louise | 1111 comments Less than 10 hours to go then we can roll. This time there are bonus points available which we can use.

Bonus Points
✸Teams will have a chance to earn 1 Free Pass to roll. To earn your free pass your team has to complete their reads a day before the next roll. Once your team has done this you will have 1 free pass. The free pass will allow a team to roll if they are missing a review(s) before the cutoff. Once you've used it, you can't earn another one. It's a one-time shot. NOTE: The free pass may not be used for the win.
✸ One point can be earned for reading three or more books in a series
✸ One point can be earned One point can be earned for reading a book that > 500 pages
✸ One point can be earned for starting and finishing a series (there must be more than 4 books in that series...I will entertain series with spin-offs) ~ no re-reads on this one.
✸ One point can be earned for never picking a book from the alternate lists (earned week before winning roll)
****Each of those can only be earned ONCE. So That is a FREE PASS and a total of 4 bonus points****


message 29: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments What do you mean by the last one?

And for the series books, do they have to be different books from the same series that have to be read by different people?


message 30: by Louise (new)

Louise | 1111 comments When we get our roll there is an option to read the a series book or pick from the alternate list.

Each point is available only once and have to be read by the same person.

message 32: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments So we should try our hardest to read a 6th in series, right?

I'm sorry for asking this, but I'll only ask it once. Can we count books we've already started? I'm reading the 6th in a series right now, and I started it 2 hours ago. I seriously hope we can.. Otherwise I'm not sure what to do, as I don't have another 6th in series with me. All of my books are at my parents' house, and I've moved out. I go up there every 2 weeks.


message 33: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Oh no, I can't count it... Oh gosh I'll need to find time to count The Spook's Sacrifice (The Last Apprentice / Wardstone Chronicles, #6) by Joseph Delaney now.

Jade aka MrsTosh (mrstosh) | 938 comments I am going to go with magic - Caraval (Caraval, #1) by Stephanie Garber


message 35: by Stacey (new)

Stacey (boydsmom) | 317 comments Maddison, in some other challenges I've done, they will let you count it if you go back to the beginning. Not sure if you want to do that, but you could check?

I'm going to read By a Thread (Elemental Assassin, #6) by Jennifer Estep for #6 in series.


message 36: by Carrie (new)

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) | 513 comments Off to look at my books to see what I have lined up for June and see what fits.


message 37: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Oh wait, so we can just read a magic book? Thought we were going for no alternates.

Yeah but I'm 20 pages from the end now XD Oh well, I'll just figure something else out.


message 38: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments So for magic, it just has to be shelved magic?


message 39: by Carrie (new)

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) | 513 comments I'm going to read Johanna's Bridegroom (Hannah's Daughters, #6) by Emma Miller it's #6 in a series, Lol I haven't read the other books but it's a quick book that I have that works for the #6. Besides most of the harlequin lines don't really have a major ongoing connection.


message 40: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments Lol that's what I can't do. I can't read books out of order.

Oh waaaiiiit do we only need to read no alternates the week before the winning roll??


message 41: by Maddie (last edited Jun 02, 2017 05:40AM) (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3585 comments I'll be reading Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1) by Laini Taylor for magic. Yaayyy I don't need to fit in another read, as this one's already planned!

message 48: by Amber (new)

Amber | 155 comments Week 1
Spot: 6
Always You (Fated Hearts, #6) by Aimee Nicole Walker
Book: Always You by Aimee Nicole Walker
Pages: 221
How it Fits: Book 6 in the Fated Hearts Series
Finished: 6/4
Rating: 4 stars

Review: This was a nice feel good/comfort read. It had two nice guys fall in love without a lot of drama and misunderstandings. The set up in the beginning of the story was the standard friends who wanted each other but didn't realize their feelings were mutual. Then the standard lets pretend to be boyfriends for a family event. Then the book did something that completely shocked me. It took that set up and threw it out the window and got down to the couple admitting their attraction and acting on it. No stumbling around or misunderstandings or hiding things. I loved it.

This book also included big understanding families, girl best friends, and a couple of exs just to add a little drama. Each guy had their own version of troubled past but these thing were just small bumps on their romance road.

Woooooooow I had no idea what I was getting myself into. This was way higher than my expectations! The realities in this are amazing! I love all of the mystery, the romantic pulls, the way a lot of the different points in the story tied in with each other. It stretched my imagination with all of the (view spoiler), but I think I started to get the hang of them. I was amazed when I found out what (view spoiler) I knew as soon as Akiva mentioned (view spoiler) One thing I was confused about when (view spoiler) took away from the awesomeness of the moment. But then, when he revealed that (view spoiler) If I was Karou I would be completely 100% torn up. I myself felt torn up figuring that out!! I love all of the characters, particularly the way (view spoiler) Wonder what's happened with (view spoiler) One thing I do know for sure is that I will be continuing the series.
