“The question,’ she replied, ‘is not whether you will love, hurt, dream, and die. It is what you will love, why you will hurt, when you will dream, and how you will die. This is your choice. You cannot pick the destination, only the path.”

Hi All! Sorry to be MIA right before kick-off, but I've only just got back to a sense of normality post Christmas!

Hope you all had great holidays, and not too much in the way of family dramas!

This thing is looking more & more terrifying every snippet of info they release - there's a website for logging things this time - eeeep!

But we'll be a GREAT team, that I know!


message 23: by Katie (new)

Katie | 1634 comments I did see that! We'll just have to be extra on top of things. :P

I'm really looking forward to seeing the website and how it works.

I've been working on getting myself organized (challenges, of course) for the new year so I can start it off right!


message 24: by Cat (new)

Cat (cat_uk) | 6506 comments Mod
Don't forget that this challenge is going on read dates, not start dates, so I for one am stacking up books to finish on 1st Jan!

And it's a good thing that we are in different timezones, with the 12 hour sabotage bid system.

We'll have to work out a strategy for bidding.

Oh! and a separate group probably, for planning & plotting.

I'll get on that now :)


message 26: by Katie (new)

Katie | 1634 comments I don't think we can use books started before the start date, though. If you start a book during round 1 and finish in round 2, then that can still count. Pretty sure of that, anyway. I'll go take a gander at the Pre-Challenge Chat. I think I saw this there.

Yes! That will work out well. With all the devious minds in this group, we'll certainly need space for planning and plotting. :)


message 28: by ✿~Danielle~✿ (new)

✿~Danielle~✿ (dmh1) | 4239 comments I think books need to be started after challenge starts. I think if a book started in round 1 but finished in round 2 that’s ok. But not starting before 1 January.


message 29: by Katie (new)

Katie | 1634 comments Yes, just located the post. Books must be started AFTER January 1. However, books started during one round and finished in another are ok to use.

That's what I thought too...

Shame, I have lots that would work otherwise! :)

glad you guys are here to keep me honest! I skimmed too quickly :(


message 32: by Katie (new)

Katie | 1634 comments I do that all the time. I think I had to correct myself a million times during WOBBLE!


message 33: by ✿~Danielle~✿ (new)

✿~Danielle~✿ (dmh1) | 4239 comments I have to remember minimum page count of 160. So used to 125 in AMMP.

I've invited them. I'm not friends with Amber (yet - waiting for her to accept), so if you guys are already on that, you could invite her


message 36: by Katie (new)

Katie | 1634 comments Danielle - YES! That's going to have to be a constant reminder.

Cat - *hangs head* I am not already on that. But I am now!!!!

whoop!
we are now all present & correct!

Amber - the good/bad news is that you've been thrown in with a pack of Dholes - we met & bonded during Wobble the other year, and have hung out together since then. I'm positive that you'll fit right in - but maybe we should all introduce ourselves.....

How about:
Home is...
Best Christmas present...
2018 resolution most doomed to failure...
Favourite book(s) / favourite author(s)...
Fun fact...

Amber M. McCarter (mommyultd) | 96 comments I've heard much praise (and maybe a few curses?) for this "Wobble" - guess I missed out!

I'm more concerned with being this team's handicap - looks like I'm your slowest reader!


message 41: by Cat (new)

Cat (cat_uk) | 6506 comments Mod
For me:
I'm Catherine IRL, but Cat here on GR. Don't ask, though I blame this mob entirely!

Home is... London, UK. or wherever my family is. I've no children myself, but do have a passel of niblings who I try to see often. Though 5 days with them over Christmas nearly killed me!

Best Christmas present... honestly, apart from the fruit & nut chocolate (really, Santa? no one likes fruit & nut chocolate!) they were all winners, especially as there was a good proportion of pretty books :) The funnest was a knit-your-own stuffed badger head! (thank goodness for audio books!)

2018 resolution most doomed to failure... My flat is overflowing with books, and I am maxed out on bookshelves. So I need to cull some books. I'm coming out in a cold sweat just thining about it. I'll set an achievable target of 20 books I think! Actually, that's probably like, 1% ... maybe I should aim larger?

Favourite books... would include Wuthering Heights, Catch-22, 1984. Favourite authors... Terry Pratchett. Hands down. The only reason there's not a title of his in my favourite books is because I LOVE THEM ALL!!! (well, 80%) Generally, fantasy / sci-fi is my go-to genre, but I read everything & anything :)

Fun fact... How do you tell the difference between sheep & goats?? (view spoiler)

Do NOT think that! We all read at different paces, and everything will help. So long as you don't vanish on us you will be a perfect teamie!

Wobble was pretty intense, but fun!

You’ll be fine. Everyone read differently and you’ll contribute awesomely.

✿~Danielle~✿ (dmh1) | 4239 comments Home is... sunny Wales (although not really sunny)


Best Christmas present... Christmas was fantastic. Great spending more time with family. I had pretty super presents, gift cards for books, new headphones and plenty of other great gifts. While it wasn’t technically gift, I had a new Kindle a last week as old one died. But then the new one wouldn’t work, so was without one for days :( Finally had a fix on Christmas Eve, so felt like a Christmas present. I’m just glad it’s all sorted before the new year and new challenges. It was hard not having one.


2018 resolution most doomed to failure... it’s not really a resolution but I do want to read more of the books I bought years ago (some 4+ years ago) and get them off my TBR. Whether I actually do it is another matter.


Favourite book(s) / favourite author(s)... it’s hard to choose favourite books. Favourite authors are Anna Bishop, Kristen Ashley, J.D. Robb, Nalini Singh, Faith Hunter. My main genres to read are Romance and Fantasy, with some sci-fi thrown in.


Fun fact...

Been meaning to read one of his books.

Amber M. McCarter (mommyultd) | 96 comments

Ok, let's see...

Home is: The Olympic Peninsula in WA state; or, alternatively, my five kiddos, two kitties, and parents - because really, the location is irrelevant aside from the fact that that is where we all are :)

Best Christmas present: Hmm... That would have to be a gift certificate to a local "crystal shop" - looking forward to some treasure hunting!

2018 resolution most doomed to failure: None. I'm not making any. Why set myself up for failure? ;)

Favourite book(s)/favourite author(s): I can never answer this sort of question. I love so many. I can't even pick a genre. Heck, I can't even really choose between fiction or non-fiction lol Definitely a leaning toward sci-fi though...

Fun fact: I considered just leaving this off, and pretending I "missed" it. But decided to upgrade my laziness to "fact status" instead.

Katie | 1634 comments You're going to be great, Amber!!! It doesn't really matter how quick you read, as long as you stick with us and pop in here to talk to us nuts every so often. :P

I'm good for that ;)


message 49: by Katie (new)

Katie | 1634 comments Home is...Pittsburgh, PA home of the fiercest sports fans I've ever come across. No really...it's scary.

Best Christmas present...hm...I got some good ones this year. My favorite might be a game called Exploding Kittens.

2018 resolution most doomed to failure...well, there's the standard lose some weight, which will most likely end in failure, but I shall do my best.

Favourite book(s) / favourite author(s)...this is a hard one. Actually, my list lines up almost exactly with Danielle's with the exception of JD Robb and sci-fi. Not a huge fan of those.

Fun fact...I'm scared to death of moths.


message 50: by ✿~Danielle~✿ (new)

✿~Danielle~✿ (dmh1) | 4239 comments Anyone read the book of which we’re named after?

I’ve read the first two in the series, but not this one yet. I’m wanting to reread books one and two first, but as they’re over 1000 pages each, I’ve not been able too yet! I was debating about getting the audios, but as they are 45+ hours. I think I’ll have more luck reading a 1000 pages over listening to 45 hours.
