Em⋆ | 674 comments Chloe I want to read Red Queen too, so if you want, we could BR it!


message 24: by Katarzyna (new)

Katarzyna | 114 comments I'd love to do a BR of Red Queen with you! Let me know when you would like to start. 😊


message 25: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2362 comments Do we just pick any card?


message 26: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2362 comments I figured it out.

I was wondering, I started A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3) by Sarah J. Maas back in June of last year and I am going to start over. I still have 444 pages to read. Since I am starting from the beginning can I count that book? I have to start over because I have no clue what was happening in this book at all. It's been to long.

I also have a book I would like to read that I have coming to me from the library called Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons, #1) by Christina Lauren that fits that category and I was wondering if I can take 2 spots on one card?

I will wait to hear back before I decide on more books


message 27: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (candypie23) | 12 comments I’m still trying to figure this out...so our first book we have to read a book that begins with the LETTERS D,I,E, and or T?


message 28: by Katarzyna (new)

Katarzyna | 114 comments Hi Susan! Yes, you can count that book, as well as take up two spots on one card.
Hi Tammy! For that card, the title of the book has to contain all of those letters, but they can be in any order and in any of the words within the title.

I hope that helps! :)


message 29: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2362 comments I have taken quite a few spots and if anyone needs to bump me please do. These are the books I will for sure be reading the first week because I am using them for other challenges too.

A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3) by Sarah J. Maas Sweet Filthy Boy (Wild Seasons, #1) by Christina Lauren and Obsidio (The Illuminae Files, #3) by Amie Kaufman

those 3 books will be read the first week in April so those are the only ones I will ask you don't bump me from.

I am really excited for this challenge to start. I am looking forward to restarting ACOWAR and of course I am dying to read Obsidio


message 30: by Em⋆ (new)

Em⋆ | 674 comments Great Chloe :) Does April 9th works for you? If not, we can choose another day!


message 31: by Katarzyna (new)

Katarzyna | 114 comments April 9th works great for me to buddy read Red Queen! I can't wait!


message 32: by Em⋆ (new)

Em⋆ | 674 comments Awesome! I'll request the thread for the 9th then


message 33: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2362 comments Can I join you both in the buddy read for Red Queen?


message 34: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2362 comments It's a series I have always wanted to read and doing a buddy read will make me read it finally


message 35: by Em⋆ (new)

Em⋆ | 674 comments Of course Susan!! The more the merrier 😀

Hi Team Palma, just to let you know that I am adding Carrie to your team ☺


message 38: by Carrie (new)

Carrie (boombaby13) | 4289 comments Hey everyone! I decided to join fun since I didn't know if the books I need to read would fit categories but it looks like you guys have a ton of cards so I should be able to squeeze them in somewhere. :)


message 39: by Em⋆ (last edited Mar 31, 2018 06:03AM) (new)

Em⋆ | 674 comments Hi Carrie! Yes, we have a lot and also 3 wild cars, so I don't think we'll have a problem fitting book for now. 😀


message 40: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (candypie23) | 12 comments Tomorrow is April so do we choose are own book to read in the Challenge or do we all read the same book!!! I’m excited to get started!!!


message 41: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (candypie23) | 12 comments And if we are reading our own books I’m reading Children of Blood and Bone. That have the LETTERS D.I.E. In the title!!!


message 42: by Em⋆ (new)

Em⋆ | 674 comments Hi Tammy. We dont need to read the same book, we can read our own or BR one. And also you can use whatever card you like, not necessarily in the order that they are in the thread.

As Lucia said you can read whatever you want then just find a spot to put them but the category with D I E also needs a T so it wouldn't fit that one. There's things like one with a B or a female lead etc though that it might fit.


message 44: by Clarice (new)

Clarice Harmor Something was going wrong with my app I finally got it working, hopefully I’m not to late checking in.


message 45: by Em⋆ (new)

Em⋆ | 674 comments It's all right Clarice, I've checked you in! :)


message 46: by Carrie (new)

Carrie (boombaby13) | 4289 comments Lucia - I moved your City of Glass down a wild card section and put my finished read in the first so we will finish that one. :)


message 47: by Em⋆ (new)

Em⋆ | 674 comments Awesome! Since you are a fast reader feel free to switch any of my books to another category :)


message 48: by Carrie (new)

Carrie (boombaby13) | 4289 comments Haha I know I've been going non-stop trying to keep up with the publication dates with my ARCs, have had text-to-speech on almost all day everyday and down to my last two reviews for the 10th finally. LOL


message 49: by Em⋆ (new)

Em⋆ | 674 comments I'm glad you could make it on time!

Hello Team Palma, just to let you know that Carrie has offered to move to a serious team who are struggling, so she will be leaving you. I'll move her points, but those books which are already locked into categories, will not be taken away from you, and neither will your bonus points for completing categories. Thank you for understanding ☺
