Review: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

**NEW RULE** For this June challenge and our previous two month one, we are doing something a little different. At the end of our Series Quarterly Challenge there will be one winner that wins a prize of getting to choose a book from bookdepository.com. They can pick any book up to $10. For this to happen, we will be combining the points from the two month challenge, our June challenge, and our Series Quarterly together to pick that winner.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8237 comments Ok. Here are the books I have planned. Don't know that I will get to all of them, but we shall see. If you want to buddy, I'm up for it.

The Blue Sword (Damar, #1) by Robin McKinley Starting June 1st in another group
Behemoth (Leviathan, #2) by Scott Westerfeld With Alaina and Jamie...can't remember the date
Age of Swords (The Legends of the First Empire, #2) by Michael J. Sullivan Starting 1st with another group
Inkheart (Inkworld, #1) by Cornelia Funke starting 5th with Alaina and Jamie
Sins of Empire (Gods of Blood and Powder, #1) by Brian McClellan starting 20th in another group
The Tombs of Atuan (Earthsea Cycle, #2) by Ursula K. Le Guin starting 22nd in another group
The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #3) by Rick Riordan around 20th in another group
Rise of Empire (The Riyria Revelations, #3-4) by Michael J. Sullivan may be reading around 15th in another group


message 8: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8237 comments Ok. That is being very ambitious. A couple should be audio though, so that should help.


message 9: by C.P. (last edited May 17, 2018 02:36PM) (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8237 comments Also want to try and read Twelve Kings in Sharakhai (The Song of the Shattered Sands, #1) by Bradley P. Beaulieu if it comes available at the library.

If I have to leave out anything, Age of Swords and Rise of Empire will likely be the ones set aside since I've already read them. Unless something else isn't catching my attention.

With working, getting my business started, writing my novel, and horse stuff I'm not sure how much time I will have for reading. I wish I had more of these on audio! I think I only have like three to do on audio.

I'm already pushing myself to get to 20. My average is somewhere around 8-15.


message 25: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8237 comments It helps me if I don't plan too much. Right now anyway. Too much planning ahead was making me read less.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8237 comments Jackie, you haven't been around since all the new mods were added, have you?

Bookbuyer is a mod and you know her. And Rainy, who you should remember as well. I don't think that Alaina of Felicia were in the group last you were able to be active.


message 39: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments Yes, I was around when they were all added!

I sent three of them to you because the other challenges for the rest of the year show that I shared them with you already.

Hello!! I'm definitely going to have Inkheart, Dirty, and maybe another book done today. Don't know yet! I'm also going to start my audio of either midnight jewel or love from both sides after inkheart <3


message 44: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments I will have the midnight Jewel done today. I will also post my review for the breakdown and the midnight Jewel. I will then start another book.

Was it good? Sorry I didn't get a lot of reading done - I'm about halfway through two kindle books but totally got distracted by the caps game!! OH AND WE WON!


message 47: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments It's fine. It was pretty good. I liked it more than the last one.

Alaina (ameserole) | 63648 comments Mod
I’ll probably get that audio done tomorrow while at work then. Hopefully I like it more than the last one.


message 49: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments It was kind of long. I didn't like this narrator as much.
