Does anyone want to be a tracker or should I do it? Or should we make like a google spreadsheet?? Since we have to complete each thing once and then we get to start all over.


Laura (acquariusgb) (acquariusgb) | 442 comments Hi, just checking in!
It's strange being in the Suicide Squad team. I still haven't seen the movie! LOL

Google spreadsheet sounds good, it might be easier since there are a lot of categories and it's a two months challenge.

Googl..."


okay :D do you guys want it on private so that the other teams can't see..or public because not everyone has checked in?


Laura (acquariusgb) (acquariusgb) | 442 comments I'm for sure going to read: Ice Wolves (Elementals, #1) by Amie Kaufman . It can fit different categories like shapeshifting or twins.

Here are some books that could count as extra points:
Wonder Woman Warbringer (DC Icons, #1) by Leigh Bardugo
Black Panther The Young Prince by Ronald L. Smith
The Flash The Haunting of Barry Allen by Susan Griffith

Jenn (tellingmelies) | 2167 comments I added 3 to the spreadsheet that I know for sure I'm reading. Let me know if I either did it wrong or anything lol. I will add more later when I can go through more books and also see what other people are doing :)

Omg yay you can see it! That means I didn’t screw it up. I haven’t checked it yet since I just got home. I’ll do that right now 😏 also sorry for being a terrible team captain Work this week going to kick my butt because it’s quarter end and my boss from Colorado is here. I’m already in overtime and it’s Tuesday 😩

Just looked and it looks great! I haven't thought about what books I'm going to read. I was thinking I could just take whatever people don't claim since I read books pretty quickly? Maybe?


Laura (acquariusgb) (acquariusgb) | 442 comments hi everyone, how is it going?
do you think Defy the Stars will be okay for A book with a non-human main character?According to the synopsis one of the characters is a machine.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Yes, Laura. It looks like that would work. I haven't read it, but the description definitely sounds like it would work!

Great! Ok, thanks : )


Laura (acquariusgb) (acquariusgb) | 442 comments for inventor/ scientist there's Iron Man The Gauntlet by Eoin Colfer .
unfortunately it's not with kindle unlimited so I don't know where to get it.

message 32: by Carolina (new)

Carolina Figueiredo (ghani_chan) | 39 comments I have a question. If onw category is claimed, like for example "Captain America - A book set during WW2", I can't read a book like this as well? Or that's not a problem?

One book per category. So there are two categories per super hero. If your book can work for another category than we can use. Because we once we complete all of the categories, it resets.


message 34: by Carolina (new)

Carolina Figueiredo (ghani_chan) | 39 comments Ah, ok. So one can work for more than one cathegory. Ok, the. Thank you.


message 35: by Alaina, Head of Monthly Challenges & Keeper of BR Threads (new)

Alaina (ameserole) | 52014 comments Mod
But with how many people are on each team we could get through the categories pretty quickly. Maybe.


message 36: by Carolina (new)

Carolina Figueiredo (ghani_chan) | 39 comments Yes, that's true


message 37: by Carolina (new)

Carolina Figueiredo (ghani_chan) | 39 comments One question. If I read Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda in Portuguese (my native language), does it count as a translated book?

message 44: by kayla ♡ (new)

kayla ♡ (kaysmagiclibrary) | 18 comments Hey guys! I'm trying to figure out what books I'm going to read for the challenge and I'm having trouble picking.

For the book that deals with mental health I have a few but I can't decide. There's Will Grayson, Will Grayson or Fangirl or Finding Audrey

All three of these books deal with mental illness but there's also Turtles All the Way Down

I really liked Fangirl and Finding Audrey!


Laura (acquariusgb) (acquariusgb) | 442 comments Happy April!!!

I'm nearly finished with the first book. I'll probably have a review up tomorrow!

Happy reading! : )

Woohoo! I haven't read anything yet! However, that doesn't mean I wont finish a book or four later today. Just been busy at work.


message 48: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (longy207) | 219 comments This may be a silly question but what are the rules for the spreadsheet? A lot of the spaces have been claimed and I know it's probably my fault for not doing any planning but not many of the books I will be reading will fit in.

I know I've done other challenges where instead of claiming books we just put in the ones we're currently reading but I don't know if that's the case here.

At this point there's not much point in me continuing with this challenge as I haven't got any books that will fit the currently empty spaces


Laura (acquariusgb) (acquariusgb) | 442 comments More categories are actually free.
I see Simon vs the Homo Sapiens more than once, but I think it's one book per category. It depends which one will Carolina put it under at the end.

what books are you planning on reading? If you want you can ask if they are willing to move their book to another spot. In that last challenge, if people already claimed a spot but haven't finished their book.. we would just ask if we could take that spot and see if they could move their book to somewhere else.
