Natalie (esaria) | 4306 comments Checking in!

...okay, so I was meant to be sleeping but I couldn’t resist checking Goodreads one last time XD

Also, I’ve put together a spreadsheet for the team to use to keep track of everything and have a whole bunch of formulas ready to calculate things if needed. Can link t to people tomorrow c:

Amazingly I'm the fastest reader in the team. O.o I don't think I've been at the top in a long time. :P


message 10: by Felicia (last edited Mar 23, 2018 06:41AM) (new)

Felicia I'm super excited for this one! I think a lot of what I'm going to read is probably going to be on KU. Because I think it'll be easiest to find books that will match whatever categories we get. I don't want to have to go out and buy books just for the challenge.

I'm gonna be throwing a ton of BRs at Alaina next month. :P

That works for me. Anything to get a fast turnover. ^-^

We have cards!!!!

(1)** 52. Yellow 'Draw Two' - Get two new categories instead of one! Both categories will be from the yellow cards, and will be chosen using random.org.

(letters must appear in order, but can be part of other words, such as; climbed, prescribed, obedient, unsuitable, unforgettable, unpredictable, inevitable.)(this list might help - Furniture In The Title) or, read books with items of furniture on the cover.
--- 33. Yellow Two - 'yellow 2' - Read books whose titles contain the letters 'C', 'I', and 'D' (for CID 31425) (Title must contain all 3 letters, but in any order.) (examples of words which contain 'C', 'I', and 'D' are accident, suicide, coincidence, lucid, and acid)

(3)** 53. Wild Card - Read ANY book.
(4)** 59. Wild Draw Four - Get four new categories/cards instead of one! (And, one of these categories/cards is guaranteed to be a Wild Card!)
---53. Wild Card - Read ANY book.

Felicia OMG! How exciting! We have to read how many books from each category before getting new cards again?


message 16: by Felicia (new)

Felicia How in the world are we going to keep track of all this? A ss probably won't work.

I think 4. I can post the rules here in a sec. A progress thread might work. I can create one to start with and then delete it later if we find a better solution. ^-^

Once 4 books have been completed for the same description, this category/card is completed, and the team will receive 10 bonus points. They will also be assigned a new category/card using random.org. (As categories are picked using random.org, teams may be assigned the same category/card more than once during the challenge.)

So I have 2 BRs planned and another almost planned. I'm also now going to find some BRs for books I want to read in April since we have so many Wild Cards. :)


message 21: by Felicia (new)

Felicia Holy cow. Four! I think I knew that subconsiously since reading the rules last week. But damn. Lol.

Okay, I'll look into some books and see which categories we have that I can contribute to.


message 22: by Felicia (new)

Felicia That's a good progress thread! I like it. :D


message 23: by Felicia (new)

Felicia Maybe we could do a ss? And just make the ss look like you did on the progress thread. And then we can do like we did this month where we have everyone fill in the space that they're working towards and then mark it finished when they're done?

The happy news is that that is 4 wildcards slots for each wild card we get so I think we have 12 books for wildcards available!

Sure. I'm horrible with technology though and Natalie said something in the first post about having made a spreadsheet so let's wait till we see her's and see if it works for us. ^-^

Hopefully it works! I'm super excited! :D

Me too! Messaging people I am for sure doing BR's with from CC and then finding a buttload of BR's in wanted BRs. ^-^


message 30: by Felicia (new)

Felicia You don't read on a Kindle do you? I forget what you say you read on. Would we be able to BR anything? Then we can kill two birds with one stone if we do lots of BRs.


message 31: by Felicia (new)

Felicia I suppose now would be the best time to organize my TBR list into actual categories. Lol.

I'm focusing on the Wildcard slots for now since I'm still figuring out my BRs and we might get another Wildcard once we complete one. :)


message 34: by Felicia (new)

Felicia Okay, I'm gonna be gone for a bit while I organize my TBR to KU books. Then I can try some planning. (:

If I can find a copy I can do Red Winter, The Vanishing Girl and First Year.

And I can definitely do Trickery since I bought a copy about a month ago. ^-^


message 49: by Felicia (new)

Felicia I've been meaning to start Red Winter forever now. And I really want to read Vanishing Girl. But Laura doens't plan on putting the next book out for quite some time so I don't know if I'd do that one. I'm already waiting on her Dark Harmony and now the next book after Pestilence. D:


message 50: by Felicia (new)

Felicia Do you have anything like KU on whatever you read on?
