This challenge is to see if you can find all the words listed below within your reading for the month. You do not need to preselect a level.

The maximum number of words for each book is THREE. There is no page limit.

0-3 words : better luck next time
3-5 words : warming up
6-8 words : getting hotter
9-10 words : CHAMPION hunter!

June
adorable
atmosphere
copper
crowded
heap
horizon
joke
market
tomato
yawn



Bonus
For our over-achievers who just need some extra words because the above weren't enough...

Unlike with the 10 words above - you must find the EXACT word to claim these bonus words, and I try to make them hard.

dime
gymnast
limousine
unbiased
vegetables

and a bonus bonus
ill-fated




To prove that you have found the word, please quote the page, percentage or LOC (Kindle) and include the sentence in which it appears.

Audiobooks are allowed so long as you can quote the page/%/LOC and the sentence. (Eg Using whispersync or finding that sentence in some other way.)

You must find the actual word or the word's root word must be at the core with the meaning essentially remaining the same ~ just turned into a noun, adjective, adverb etc. No prefixes or hyphenated extensions. An extension is allowed where it is often the accepted spelling eg goodbye or good-bye.

Where a word has more than one meaning, either meaning may be used. Eg coast (beachfront) or coast (moving without effort) etc

Please post all entries, updates, final posts and questions in this thread.

Jane (PS) | 21315 comments Tips for finding words - courtesy of Jennifer ♔Princess Penguin♔

Using Google books:
~Go here https://books.google.com/bkshp?hl=en&...
~Type in the name of your book
~Select your book
~On the left about midway down there will be a search bar, type your word in there.

Couple of things you need to know...
~you need to check every variety of the word you want so, let's say GROUP doesn't show up you would also need to type in GROUPS/ED/ING
~Unfortunately, 99% of the books on Google does not list page numbers (at least in my experience)

Using Amazon:
~You search for your book
~Once on your book page make sure you are on a version that is paperback or hardcover (Kindle editions will not work)
~On the left there will be a picture of your book and it should have "Search Inside" above it
~Click on the book and the search bar will be inside

You will not need to search separately for plurals but you will still need to search separately for -ed and -ing


***
You can also search for words in all the books loaded on your Kindle.

On the home page, use the 'search' function.
~ type in the word and select 'search my items'.

10/10
ADORABLE - Jail House Rock location 436, 44% (6/19/18)
He's leaning in too close to her for his own good, and I can see, even from here, that he's trying to get a look down her adorable puppy dog scrubs. I'm out of my seat and pushing through the door to get to the back office before you can say vagina.
ATMOSPHERE - Lure of Oblivion location 4616, 94% (6/7/18)
As Marlon made pancakes and Yvonne made coffee, more and more people came downstairs for breakfast. Considering the night before had been on hell of a fuckup, it was surprising that the atmosphere was… peaceful. The arrival of a car ruined it.
COPPER - Lure of Oblivion location 2267, 47% (6/7/18)
The door opened, and a slender, quirkily dressed female with long hair made up of gold, copper, dark-red, and plum-purple streaks smiled at them. She also wore a baby sling. As the sling faced inward, Gwen could only make out tiny limbs, and a little mop of short, dark curls.
CROWDED - Vikings: The Truth About Lagertha and Ragnar location 2076, 42% (6/23/18)
That night, as everyone crowded around the fire, Lagertha relaxed with her drink and watched the warriors as they settled in for the night.
HEAP - Three Trials location 2281, 57% (6/12/18)
Now that I've apparently died-again-one of those assholes finally got me my roses. Whichever one it was, they're my new favorite. I don't even care if it's Jude; this ones a win. "Lovely," I say to myself, grinning at the heaps of roses surrounding me, even though the ones under me smell like they're burning.
HORIZON - Beasting Beauty location 222, 20% (6/22/18)
That wasn't in the cards for me, not anymore. Love was a fucking sinking ship-a sunset being swallowed by the sea over the horizon. …I just had no idea how fucking wrong I was yet.
JOKE - Mikhail location 538, 17% (6/4/18)
"Straying off the map into unknown territory, are we?" He chuckled as though it was some private joke. "Here there be dragons."
MARKET - Burn location 3802, 62% (6/9/18)
"They're just knicknacks. You know, sentimental stuff." She lifted out a hand-painted skeleton-shaped trinket box. "I got this from a market in Mexico. We didn't live there long, but I loved it there."
TOMATO - Light My Fire location 469, 13% (6/29/18)
Amelie agreed. "But Aisling…there has been some talk." "Oh? About what? Oooh, stuffed tomatoes! Thank you, they look delicious."
YAWN - Daddy Duke location 423, 6% (6/4/18)
Faith left late, and even though I'd made a big show of yawning when I walked her out to her frankly gorgeous new red sports car, I wasn't tired.

Bonus
4/5
DIME - 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover location 1208, 25% (6/18/18)
In fact, they managed to avoid looking at her altogether. She could have been a ghost freely strolling the weathered boards. Or someone who didn't need luck in pitching dimes or trying the ring toss to win a prize.
GYMNAST
LIMOUSINE - 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover location 4077, 85% (6/18/18)
She was positive the tall bald-headed man that approached her could easily bench press the limousine and not even break a sweat. "Master Tyge Foulshadow," she stated, handing him the card.
UNBIASED - Burn location 2921, 47% (6/9/18)
"That not only takes away my voice, it takes away your right to have an unbiased opinion. He doesn't promise you a voice. He promises you the illusion of a voice."
VEGETABLES - Light My Fire location 396, 11% (6/29/18)
"Yeah. The Akashic plain, actually. You know-the place everyone calls limbo? Where demons who don't eat their vegetables go?" Amelie just looked at me.

COCOA - Three Trials location 1632, 40% (6/12/18)
"You were my favorite earlier. Gage has now replaced you once again," I tell him idly as he passes me the last jar of alcohol. I'm stunned a little to taste a rich cocoa flavor instead of cinnamon like last time. I guess Kai prefers a different taste, and it's something new I get to learn about them.
