Jane (PS) | 19323 comments Monthly Word Hunt
1 - 30 April 2018

This challenge is to see if you can find all the words listed below within your reading for the month. You do not need to preselect a level.

The maximum number of words for each book is THREE. There is no page limit.

0-3 words : better luck next time
3-5 words : warming up
6-8 words : getting hotter
9-10 words : CHAMPION hunter!

April
bud
chocolate
egg
festival
freight
green
nest
rabbit
relevant
once



Bonus
For our over-achievers who just need some extra words because the above weren't enough...

Unlike with the 10 words above - you must find the EXACT word to claim these bonus words, and I try to make them hard.

cocoa
goal
relent
scrambled
tan




To prove that you have found the word, please quote the page, percentage or LOC (Kindle) and include the sentence in which it appears.

Audiobooks are allowed so long as you can quote the page/%/LOC and the sentence. (Eg Using whispersync or finding that sentence in some other way.)

You must find the actual word or the word's root word must be at the core with the meaning essentially remaining the same ~ just turned into a noun, adjective, adverb etc. No prefixes or hyphenated extensions. An extension is allowed where it is often the accepted spelling eg goodbye or good-bye.

Where a word has more than one meaning, either meaning may be used. Eg coast (beachfront) or coast (moving without effort) etc

Please post all entries, updates, final posts and questions in this thread.


Examples for 'Reversal'
Reverse - Laser Visions √ 15 May
p50-51 : There were a couple of bands Tam had that this person didn't, but none in the reverse.

Reversing - Sunset √ 10 Jul
p204 : Reversing his grip on his katana, he held it out to Nick.

Jane (PS) | 19323 comments Tips for finding words - courtesy of Jennifer ♔Princess Penguin♔

Using Google books:
~Go here https://books.google.com/bkshp?hl=en&...
~Type in the name of your book
~Select your book
~On the left about midway down there will be a search bar, type your word in there.

Couple of things you need to know...
~you need to check every variety of the word you want so, let's say GROUP doesn't show up you would also need to type in GROUPS/ED/ING
~Unfortunately, 99% of the books on Google does not list page numbers (at least in my experience)

Using Amazon:
~You search for your book
~Once on your book page make sure you are on a version that is paperback or hardcover (Kindle editions will not work)
~On the left there will be a picture of your book and it should have "Search Inside" above it
~Click on the book and the search bar will be inside

You will not need to search separately for plurals but you will still need to search separately for -ed and -ing


***
You can also search for words in all the books loaded on your Kindle.

On the home page, use the 'search' function.
~ type in the word and select 'search my items'.

9/10

BUD - Pocket Full of Posies location 4567, 41% (in Lost in Limbo) (4/28/18)
"Your turn," he said, holding the cup out to me. "Did you lose your taste buds or something?" I huffed, taking the tea from him. "Oh, no. I taste just fine." He gave me a wink.
CHOCOLATE - My Commander location 1258, 39% (4/25/18)
"Son, how violent is yer woman?" The older man asked sounding curious. Aiden leaned in and whispered. "She knocked me unconscious once with the back of my toilet." The older man's eyes widened. "Better get you some chocolate bars. You can throw those from a distance."
EGG - How to Drive a Dragon Crazy location 20496, 82% (in G.A. Aiken Dragon Bundle) (4/4/18)
The speech she'd given more than once over the years to Éibhear, and when they were much younger, to her older sons. The one that included things like: "I'm sure your father didn't mean that." "Of course your father loves you." "No. He didn't try to sell your egg to the highest human bidder." "And of course, he never tried to kill you while you slept!"
FESTIVAL - Death and Beauty location 1279, 79% (4/12/18)
First Frigg, Bragi, and Nanna traveled to the major cities. They played in auditoriums, at fairs and festivals. They would make entire cities cry, filling the streets with weeping mortals, or dwarves, or Light-elves.
FREIGHT
GREEN - Fire Me Up location 370, 7% (4/16/18)
"Uncle Damian is giving me another chance to prove that I can transport a priceless object without having it stolen by a certain green-eyed dragon in hunk form. It doesn't have any gold on it, so it should be safe enough from him.…"
NEST - Dead Vampires Don't Date location 1489, 37% (4/19/18)
"Xavier, huh?" Petey directed his question towards Morgan. "That's a pretty damn big nest, Mistress Morgan." I cleared my throat. Petey locked eyeballs with me. I didn't like it, then again I hadn't liked much of my life the past few days either.
RABBIT - Four Psychos location 384, 10% (4/7/18)
After recapping my walk down memory lane, telling them how I watched them, when I watched them, how I enjoyed it…I sound like a totally crazy girl in the bushes with binoculars and a rabbit. Not that furry-friend kind of rabbit.
RELEVANT - Fire Me Up location 3306, 58% (4/16/18)
Paolo and he exchanged glances. Meaningful glances. "I believe that information is not relevant. Know simply that it would be most…unpleasant." Oh, great. He was talking about supernatural torture.
ONCE - Playing with Fire: A Magical Romantic Comedy location 1286, 24% (4/22/18)
"God save my soul, but yes. You can solve this problem once-and only once-with fire. Only this once."

Bonus
4/5

COCOA
GOAL - Before Midnight location 1870, 58% (4/29/18)
"Ah yes," the witch mused. "I imagine many mothers and daughters will try to get you to stay a little longer in the hopes of…distracting you from your goal."
RELENT - The Purple Alien Prince's Pregnant Captive location 851, 59% (4/10/18)
"You belong with me." He would not relent on this point. His soul cried out with the thought of being without Baila for the remainder of his life.
SCRAMBLED - Lucifer's Daughter location 215, 14% (4/9/18)
I was pretty sure I was staring at a blonde Adonis because there was no possible way his face could be any more handsome. His full lips quirked up at me and I scrambled to stop my staring.
TAN - Lucifer's Daughter location 84, 7% (4/9/18)
"Kendall, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we split up because he fucked you in a broom closet, and unless 'God' is what you call your vagina nowadays, I think you're fooling yourself." I gave her my most mocking of smiles and made a shooing motion with my hand. Even beneath the orange of her spray tan, I could see her face reddening.

ESCALATING - How to Drive a Dragon Crazy location 20735, 83% (in G.A. Aiken Dragon Bundle) (4/4/18)
"Did you start all this?" "I'd really say that Keita started it, but I did escalate the argument to the free-for-all you see before you." "Nicely handled, little brother. I'm usually the only one who creates this level of discord."
SPONGE - Lucifer's Daughter location 1897, 96% (4/9/18)

I have found EVERY iteration of "relent" except ya know..."relent". LOL
