Lara (Bookish_turtle) | 833 comments Yay, so excited! This challenge is good, because basically any book you read can be counted. Try to get as many Buddy Reads as possible for the double points. So excited for this!


☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 6070 comments There is only 2 books I can BR but they both will get 12 points. A lot of people on here don't read the same genre that I do.

Same here! My first book will be one that I started in June, so it'll just be for the pages I've read this month.


message 22: by Lara (new)

Lara (Bookish_turtle) | 833 comments I'm doing lots of Buddy Reads this month, I'm working through Legendary & When Dimple Met Rishi at the moment.

I know the feeling! I'm about to be on holidays and should have plenty of time then, but I've had a busy few weeks before that!


message 28: by Quirks (new)

Quirks (quirkyopinions) | 7339 comments Hey, just popping in to say that I've finished two books so far. Just haven't gotten around to reviewing them. And I'm currently reading 'Fellowship of the Rings' and 'We Are the Ants'.


message 29: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12277 comments Posted my first book. Currently reading The Delusion: We All Have Our Demons The Delusion We All Have Our Demons (The Delusion #1) by Laura Gallier . Around 20% and it is really interesting so far.


message 30: by Sanah (new)

Sanah Shabbir (szs_30) | 505 comments Hey guys, sorry I haven't been active lately. I am on vacation and haven't gotten a ton of reading time. I am currently reading All the Light We Cannot See (we can still count books we started in june as long as we exclude the pages not read this month, right?) I have the rest of the Darkest Minds trilogy to finish and then I'll pick up a few more books this week!


message 31: by Melanie (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 12277 comments Finished and posted the Delusion. Now working on finishing up The Bones Will Speak (Gwen Marcey #2) by Carrie Stuart Parks


message 32: by Jamie (last edited Jul 08, 2018 02:16PM) (new)

Jamie | 11416 comments My reading progress:
The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien 34% BR, 500+ pgs=10 pts
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami 16% BR, 600+ pgs=12 pts
Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) by Amie Kaufman 16% BR, 600+ pgs=12 pts


Slow but steady progress but these are some big point books so when I do finish and post they'll help a lot.


So we are in last place, by a LOT, so lets see if we can all step it up and show everyone that we are still in this! I work a double shift today but then I have a couple days off so I hope to get some good reading in over the next few days! Lets catch up and re-join the race!

Special thanks to Lara and Melanie for being our current point leaders and pulling us along!


☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 6070 comments I'm about to post three reviews. I'm working on 3 more books. I do have a couple BR's coming up next week. Hopefully it will help some.


message 34: by Lara (new)

Lara (Bookish_turtle) | 833 comments Yay, come on guys, we can still do this!

Hello Team Three Headed Dog, just to let you know that I have messaged both Quirks and Sanah as they haven't posted reviews yet. We're on a slightly tighter schedule this month as I will be going on holiday on the 14th, so I will be looking to replace anybody who hasn't posted by the 12th. Thanks x

message 43: by Lara (new)

Lara (Bookish_turtle) | 833 comments The gap between scores is a lot smaller than it was before, though we're still behind by a bit. If you guys are able to get any buddy reads it would really boost our score!


☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 6070 comments I have one more BR. I try to get BR's but nobody seems to read the same books as me.
