We keep our scores here so we wouldn't forget. Say, you finish a book that was a theme ARC - then you come to this thread and say:

"My current score is XX for finishing X book for Y theme. I have also scored X points because it was an old ARC. This puts my score at a total of XX."

Think of it as a notepad so we won't lose track!

I would present an example for you, but I have yet to earn ANY score xD

You can see what actions are worth what scores on this thread.

Sheila G (foalsfictionandfiligrere) Okey dokey! I'm going to get this started, so I can keep track as I go along! Otherwise, I'll forget what I've posted and not posted later on.

AS OF 10/12/17:

100 points for finishing 2 reads within ARC monthly topic
40 points for finishing 4 other ARCs outside of topic
20 points for 4 about posts giving a synopsis of each book
10 points for 2 review link shared with the group

CURRENT TOTAL: 170 points

Hopefully, I tallied everything correctly! I'm assuming that finishing an ARC topic read does not fall under the "finish any ARC" category since it has its own...if it does, then my total would be 190 points.

message 9: by Grace (new)

Grace (turnspageslowly) | 13 comments Now that I’ve completed my ARC for this months theme, I have 60 points!

— 50 points for completing a theme book
— 5 points for posting my review
— 5 points for one post in the discussion topics

I will forever be guilty of requesting more ARCs, even when I promise myself I’m “only looking for just a second”. 😓


Evelina | AvalinahsBooks (avalinahsbooks) | 219 comments Mod
So I have 70 points now, yay! I am obviously not going to catch up with you girls, but I'm still super proud, especially because that ARC was a year old and also it turned out to be really good! Don't know when I'll review it though, no more slots on the blog xD

Marta, you are also on a roll, congrats!
Grace, you also get 5 points for starting a theme book in the first place! So you have 65 :)


message 11: by Marta (new)

Marta Pascual Perez (martapasperez) | 21 comments So basically I am on fire and I finished another ARC, but it doesn't fit on the topic son is just +10 for me. I don't share my review as the book is only written in Spanish as so is my review. So far my total score is 165 points.


message 12: by Marta (new)

Marta Pascual Perez (martapasperez) | 21 comments my socre is 125 (some day in the future I will learn how to write)

You read 12 ARCs this month? :0 wow! We are only counting ARCs, not regular books. Saying just in case :D
I have only read like 4 books T_T time.... grrr


message 15: by Sheila (last edited Oct 19, 2017 09:46AM) (new)

Sheila G (foalsfictionandfiligrere) As of 10/17/17: I was at 190 points, but I finished reading another ARC (not theme related), so I'm now at 200 points.

Further Update:

10 points for not requesting arcs for one week
5 points for starting a themed book (The Ninth Circle, Book 1: Fire)
5 points for giving a synopsis of the book in the conversation thread for The Ninth Circle, Book 1: Fire

Current total 220 points

Update 10/19/17 My mistake, NOW I haven't requested ARCs for a week, so now my current total is 220 points.

Lauren (Northern Plunder) (northernplunder) As of 19/10/2017:
- 50 points for finished an ARC that was in topic: i finished TSIYH it was ok
- 20 points for finishing any ARC: Lighter Than My Shadow + Carnivore: The most controversial debut literary thriller of 2017
- 30 points for not requesting anything for a week: I lasted 24 days.
- 15 points for posting an update on what your book is: [1 | 2 | 3 ]
- 10 points for starting a theme ARC: There's Someone Inside Your House which is horror and Blackbird which isn't a horror but I'm thinking it maybe counts as its a mystery about a missing sister? and tonnes of mysterious blackbirds?

Current total: 125


message 17: by Marta (new)

Marta Pascual Perez (martapasperez) | 21 comments Hii!
So I have finished an other ARC, and for now I will be reading a couple of regular books.
My current score is 145 because in addition to my previous updates :
-I have finished an ARC. 10 points as it was not related to the topic.
-I have intervened twice in the discussion topic. 10 points.
Good luck with your reading!!


Evelina | AvalinahsBooks (avalinahsbooks) | 219 comments Mod
I can't believe I am the group leader and I have the least amount of points xD !!! I have 80 mow, cause I resisted requesting the week before. But not last week! Grah.


message 19: by Grace (new)

Grace (turnspageslowly) | 13 comments So I had 65 points earlier this month. I've completed two more ARCs, one of which actually fit with the theme of Creeptober, adding 50 points for one and 10 points for the other, bringing my total to 125. I also shared my two reviews of these books, which I completely recommend, so that adds 5 points for each review.

I believe my final score is up to 135. :)
