✨Skye✨ | 3161 comments I haven't planned any reads as I'm waiting for the cards to be dealt and I'll go from that. It might be an idea to organise most of our BRs within our team so try and make sure every read is a BR :)

✨Skye✨ | 3161 comments Our cards-

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.
---31. Yellow Zero - 'Mello Yello Zero' - Read books which feature the word 'sweet' in the title (can be a part of another word such as sweetness, sweetly, sweetheart, sweetest), or books shelved/tagged as 'Sweet' (this shelf might help - Popular Sweet Books), or books appearing on this list - Sweet Summer Reads 2010.
---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)
(2)**39. Yellow Eight - 'Yellow Eight' - Read books by author's called 'Richard', books tagged as 'Richard', or with main characters called 'Richard'. (for 'Richard Wentworth') (can be first or last name, and can also be Richards or Richardson) (this shelf might help Richard Books)

Redwine), or read books by an author with the surname 'Green' (names containing the word 'Green' are also okay, such as 'Greene', 'Greenland', 'Greenwich')

I believe I have dates set up for Turtles All the Way Down and Sleeping Giants. I need to go through all my messages to find out when though! I'm very unorganised this month, I apologise. You can choose the dates for the others :)
