HIIII GUYS! :D

We are going to do so well next month I am so excited!! Going to really push myself during a readathon first week and also last 11 days of the month when I don't have uni
I do have a test 4th August though 😕
Which is going to be really tough.

BUT I WILL READ HEAPS! And I'm going to get super competitive so be prepared for me to get pushy. I didn't realise there would be so many bloody medium teams! It's insane!


message 12: by Klancy (new)

Klancy | 1339 comments Hi, Maddison!! :) That’s so cool you’re doing a readathon. They definitely help to push me to read more. I usually read about 7 books a month, but I really want to push myself for this challenge so feel free to be pushy with me. XD

But I know. A lot of people signed up for medium teams this time. I think it’s because sometimes the people who sign up for just for fun don’t participate


message 13: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
And also because this is MMC and everyone's really excited.

Yeah I'll push you I'm good to do that :p

message 16: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
Actually majority of them XD Particularly new people. The people I recognise are all fine with participating, probably because I recognise them due to their level of participation, but the others. Hhhmmmm. Take this month. Jackie has given us 3 points...

Welcome to the team! :)

I’ve been wanting to read Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas for a long time now, so I’m hoping I’ll get the chance to read it this month. Other than that, I don’t really have a plan yet. 😬 What about you guys?


message 22: by Jacquelyn (new)

Jacquelyn Simon (jacquelynrose94) | 2171 comments I’ve really been wanting to read Poison Study (Study, #1) by Maria V. Snyder
Other than that, I have no idea hahaha

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
Alpha (Shifters, #6) by Rachel Vincent Must be so nice not to have plans guys XD I haven't planned reads like I have next month for so long and it's already stressing me out, but it's the motivation I need.

Smith Stray (Shifters, #1) by Rachel Vincent Shift (Shifters, #5) by Rachel Vincent Rogue (Shifters, #2) by Rachel Vincent Pride (Shifters, #3) by Rachel Vincent Prey (Shifters, #4) by Rachel Vincent
the rest of Wideacre (The Wideacre Trilogy, #1) by Philippa Gregory (so majority of it XD) and also the rest of Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

Now for my audios:

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
I won't get to all of those physicals, no way, but they're all priorities so I'll just start from the start XD

I should also get through more audios than that, that's just a starting point.


message 25: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
Klancy you can jump in on the BR for Heir of Fire, as it's a series BR for the Throne of Glass books. I think Nicole's also planning on reading them, and maybe Shae? At least the first 2. We're desperately trying to read them all before Kingdom of Ash comes out.


message 26: by Jacquelyn (new)

Jacquelyn Simon (jacquelynrose94) | 2171 comments And I’m going to try to br them as well


message 27: by Himanshu (new)

Himanshu Saliya (him186) | 120 comments I am also going try my best in August.

I've just included a list of how the challenge works on the Review thread, copied it from the explanation.

Perfect, thanks! I’ll definitely BR Heir of Fire! I’ve also been wanting to read Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1) by Alexandra Bracken and Shadow and Bone (Grisha Verse, #1) by Leigh Bardugo so we could BR them for our board 👌🏻 It looks like there are BRs planned for Six of Crows and Darkest Minds, so we would just need to request for Shadow and Bone

Also, when BRs are confirmed, I can post links to the chats on my first post in this thread to make it easier for everyone to find them if they want to join in later


message 34: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
Nope there's threads for them all :)

Oh that's a good idea! :D

DM: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Grishaverse: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
Throne of Glass: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

We are just reading Six of Crows on the Grisha thread we think. It's the same universe.


message 35: by Klancy (new)

Klancy | 1339 comments I added all the threads and dates to my first post!

Klancy | 1339 comments I’ve also been wanting to read To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo if anyone wants to BR it with me!

Also, do you guys think we should make an excel sheet to keep track of what everyone is reading for each letter??

Sure! The 7th is good :)


message 40: by Klancy (new)

Klancy | 1339 comments Yay! I’ll request a thread 👌🏻

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
Yay I love how easy it is to chat with you guys <3

And I'm not sure when I'll be reading ToG, but it won't be the 5th. At least I know that the thread will be ongoing so I can start anytime XD

I like the idea of an Excel sheet, that way people can claim letters, as we're only allowed one letter per word. I believe we can bank letters though if we need to, so if there is a double-up we can save it. I am also willing to branch out a bit through my audios if we need some harder letters filled.

I would also like to take J in Jandy with the J in Jenny Han. It's my first audio of the month, hoping to get it done that same day. Also I'll be starting around 19 hours ahead of you guys or something like that because of time zone differences, so I should have points up before anyone else even starts :D

Also sucks that my first physical can only tick off one letter XD TDMAB only appear once each in our first set. Hopefully someone can get to an E!


message 43: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
Also looks like I'm going to have to bank Shadow and Bone (and possibly Siege and Storm) as they're both the same letters in title and author. Depends what's left when I get to them. It'll be a while, and I'm hoping to speed through these sets guys!

Oh, yes! We’ll be able to start early :)

I made a rough excel sheet. Basically, I labeled the first two boards and the letters we need to complete them. I left 3 spaces beneath each letter just in case multiple of us on the team end up buddy reading a book together. But feel free to start filling in letters you want to claim! This is the link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/...

I’m also including the second and third boards so we can track which books we’re banking. Let me know if the link doesn’t work!


message 45: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
The link works, and I just requested access to edit it :)

I'm going to ask Sarah if we need to count one book for all of the letters, because with all of the BRs that we will be doing, we'll have too many banked books... And if we only count for one letter rather than all of the s's (say) then we'll get more points.

Klancy | 1339 comments Maddison, have you heard anything from Nicole?


Nicole's Book Diaries (nicolesbookdiaries) | 2308 comments I'm here! Sorry guys. I'm super busy with school. I will be more active in August!

Sorry I disappeared, I must have missed a notification.

So what's everyone else reading? Have they put their books into the ss?

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 46290 comments Mod
Added my books to the spreadsheet. Can't wait for tomorrow I'll be finishing up my first audio before anyone else gets to the start time XD I'm 19hr ahead I think.
