1 - 30 November 2018

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!

November
autopilot
blunt
bittersweet
crisp
duel
explicit
magnet
moon
nurse
rival



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.

audacity
barren
diary
parrot
refugee

and a bonus bonus
bovine




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.


Examples for 'Reversal'
Reverse - Laser Visions √ 15 May
p50-51 : There were a couple of bands Tam had that this person didn't, but none in the reverse.

Reversing - Sunset √ 10 Jul
p204 : Reversing his grip on his katana, he held it out to Nick.

Jane (PS) | 19170 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'.

After your servants come—ah, I hear pounding at the door, so you might as well open it and assure them there isn’t a corpse—I’ll go back to Lady Montbray and then to London.

9/10
AUTOPILOT - Sharing Samantha location 217, 21% (11/27/18)
"You my knight in shining armor?" I laugh darkly. "Not so shining or white armor, but yeah." "Well, I've never had a knight before." "That's a damn shame," I murmur. My hands slide to her on autopilot, before I can even stop myself.
BLUNT - Pack Challenge location 667, 23% (11/1/18)
Zach shook his head. His friend sure did have it bad for a woman who went screaming beyond the realm of blunt. Well, whatever floats your boat.
BITTERSWEET
CRISP - Fashionably Dead in Diapers location 2248, 71% (11/21/18)
My gut clenched and my fury grew. I backed up, gritted my teeth and tried again. Sparks and bursts of purple fire bounced off the walls as we all ducked to avoid frying to a crisp. Nothing.
DUEL - Wild Hunger location 439, 9% (11/4/18)
Allegedly the original Alpha, Rick Coleman, lost a duel to his teenage son, Trey. Instead of stepping aside to allow the teen to rule, Rick banished him.
EXPLICIT - Here Kitty, Kitty! location 133, 3% (11/11/18)
His brothers were around here somewhere. Why? He'd left them in Texas with explicit instructions not to come back until they had a signed property deal from that old wolf Marrec so they could build some stupid amusement park his father had his heart set on.
MAGNET - When He Was Bad location 1997, 51% (11/16/18)
"My fault?" Van began pulling off her clothes. "I'm Alpha Male of the Van Holtz Pack. That's a female magnet, doc. I should be knee-deep in pussy. Instead I'm madly in love with you. Can't imagine my life without you."
MOON - Go Fetch location 21, 1% (11/10/18)
He silently moved toward her. She sat on a rock, reading an oversized paperback book. Squinting, forced to use the moonlight and the light from the rave to illuminate whatever she read.
NURSE - Bound location 1279, 59% (11/5/18)
Once inside, Xander heads to the kitchen where he reaches into an overhead cupboard and pulls out an impressive-sized box, containing enough supplies to run a small hospital ward. "Nurse in a former life?" I joke. "If I was, I'd have better equipment."
RIVAL - Hell on Heels location 2144, 40% (11/8/18)
"Go to community college, make friends, visit your cousin Astrid, practice Black Magic, have fun. The usual." "Wait. Did you say community college? I've already graduated from a college that rivals most Ivy League institutions."

Bonus
4/5
AUDACITY - Fashionably Dead in Diapers location 2964, 93% (11/21/18)
He had betrayed The Kev's trust and he thought he was gray? I laughed at his audacity. He was delusional and he was going to die.
BARREN - Witches Don't Back Down location 3498, 88% (11/18/18)
I didn't see death lurking there. I saw nothing. A total absence of emotion or feeling. To have death, first you have to have life. I couldn't find anything in her eyes but a barren, brown color. Morgause didn't live. She existed.
DIARY - Allison and the Torrid Tea Party location 3020, 60% (11/26/18)
If I do get back home, I should grab my diary while I'm there. I'd even start a new one tonight if I felt I had the energy. But after the sex, the shooting, the dancing, and the poison…I have nothing left.
PARROT - Wild Hunger location 4638, 99% (11/4/18)
Frankie narrowed her eyes at him. "How do you know that?" "A little bird told me." "Well, since I don't have a parrot that could sell me out, I'm guessing that you're lying." "Oh my God. It's just a turn of phrase."
REFUGEE

Bonus-Bonus

1/1
BOVINE - Hybrid Misfit location 1161, 61% (11/29/18)
Even I couldn't resist the mouthwatering aroma of the prime rib placed in front of me, and even if the meat wasn't like any bovine stuff I'd eaten before, I ignored it because it was ambrosia in my mouth.

Carryovers

September
BURIAL - Embers location 4186, 73% (11/14/18)
Glaring at Thatcher, Harper said, "There's no such custom about burials in my lair. Even if there were, that bitch would get no courtesies from me."
PAPARAZZI - Embers location 2112, 37% (11/14/18)
It wasn't the first time they'd been followed. Sometimes it was paparazzi, sometimes it was someone hoping to pitch a business idea to him, sometimes it was a PI hired by business rival or even a nosy Prime.

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


November

autopilot

Blunt: "The effect was absolutely electrifying; Robin drew a breath and held it as he very carefully turned her hand over, so that her palm was facing up, and with one blunt finger, wordlessly traced the path of her life line to her wrist, scoring her with his touch, sparking a river of fire that ran down her arm and straight into her heart." Page 182
Material Girl by Julia London - ***** - 11/6/2018 - 482 Pages

bittersweet

Crisp: "The pages were made of paper of the finest quality, thin and crisp and edged in gold foil." Page 17

Cold Days by Jim Butcher - ***** - 11/1/2018 - 515 Pages
Explicit: "And some other part of me abruptly filled my mind with a violent and explicit image—my fist tangled in Lily’s hair, that soft gentle mouth under mine, her body writhing beneath my weight as I took her to the ground." Page 239
Cold Days by Jim Butcher - ***** - 11/1/2018 - 515 Pages
Magnet: "His hand closed tightly around her fingers, and Robin took a step forward, drawn like a magnet to the circle of his arms, attached by a powerful, physical current running between them." Page 182

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.

Examples for 'Reversal'
Reverse - Laser Visions √ 15 May
p50-51 : There were a couple of bands Tam had that this person didn't, but none in the reverse.

Reversing - Sunset √ 10 Jul
p204 : Reversing his grip on his katana, he held it out to Nick.
