🌹Theme - Book Boyfriends🌹


Information required when posting your completion/s:

Date Task
Book/cover link
Page numbers
How book qualified, with links or cover as necessary.
Dated Completed with Rating.
If this is your second (or more) book for the task, also include that information.

Please include only this information. A small review may be included if desired, but is not required. No other discussion allowed though.

Although you will not need to make selection posts like in the PtP, your teammates might like ideas for what to read so sharing what you're reading could be very helpful. If you have any question if your book qualifies, it would be better to find out before you read it - ask your teammates or in the Q&A/Announcement thread.

Books must be 90 pages and MPG (Main Page Genre) Romance. Contemporary Romance, Historical Romance, Paranormal Romance or similar is acceptable, but it must be romance. Audiobooks and rereads are ok. Books can only be read once per person during the challenge even if it fits multiple categories. The same book can be read by teammates though. Once the task for the date is announced, you may not tag a book so that it fits or edit any lists - this must be done before the date begins.

🌹Theme - Book Boyfriends🌹


The dates will begin on Saturdays at 6 PM EST, at that time the task for each date will be announced. Books must be completed and posted by the following Friday at Midnight EST, except when 'Visiting the Family' when you will have until the second Friday. Roses will be awarded before the next date begins. Each date we will be working towards spelling out B-A-C-H-E-L-O-R. The potential tasks for each letter will be posted in advance, but you will not know which task will be used until the date begins.

Roses are earned by:
🌹 The first rose per team is earned for reading 4 books fitting the task during the date.
Bonus roses may be earned by:
🌹 The team that finishes 4 books and posts in the Q&A/Announcement thread first wins a bonus rose. Note, posting is required to earn this rose.
🌹 Teams with each member completing the task (with a minimum of 6 books read) earn an additional rose.
🌹 Teams finishing 8+ books during the date win an additional rose.

Teams will not be eliminated even if they earn no roses, they will have a chance to catch up by earning additional roses on other dates. Players will be eliminated if they do not complete the task on two consecutive dates. Eliminated players will not be replaced. Remember, players are allowed to read multiple books for a given date in order to earn bonuses and/or to make up for teammates who do not read their book or who have been eliminated.

🌹Theme - Book Boyfriends🌹


Captains, please reserve a few spaces for tracking.

Introduce yourselves to your teammates. Let then know where you are from, what your interests are in life and in books! Consider friending each other, that makes it easier to follow the goings on.

Your first task as a team is to come up with a team name. The theme if 'Book Boyfriend' and your team name should relate to that. Captains, please PM me your team name when you have decided.


message 5: by MountainKat, Moderator (new)

MountainKat | 19730 comments I will be tracking each team's completions and using the captains' tracking to confirm before awarding roses at the end of each date.


message 6: by MountainKat, Moderator (new)

MountainKat | 19730 comments Please allow your captain to reserve some tracking posts before commenting.

Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 766 comments Hi team! I'm Amanda and I live in South Carolina. I work full time as an accountant and I have a spoiled Yorkie named Bella. My favorite romance subgenres are contemporary and historical, but I enjoy reading most of them. I am terrible at coming up with anything creative for a team name. I will see what I can come up with.

My favorites are contemporary, erotic (menage,dark,bdsm, and a few others), pnr, the only historical is highlander, yum 😊 I also like romantic suspense/mysteries too.

I'm not good with coming up with names but how about

Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 766 comments I have not come up with anything creative, but I just noticed that Kat posted this up at the top. "The theme is 'Book Boyfriend' and your team name should relate to that."

Does anyone have a favorite book boyfriend? The name could be _________'s Beauties or something like that so it relates to the theme.

ETA: In looking at the other team names so far, they don't relate to the theme so maybe this doesn't matter. In that case, I am good with Romance Beauties.

The book does not have to start with a certain letter. It just has to fit the task and have a romance MPG.

MountainKat | 19730 comments I'm going to be more than a little picky here in my comments, just to point out some errors. You did earn three roses, though technically I should have only given two and I'm really stretching it to award that third rose. I'm allowing the posting errors this week, but won't going forward.

The biggest problem was rcgilbert's post: There is no link to the book as required; she did not include the date of completion in her first post that was before the deadline - it was added in a second post after the deadline; and she qualified the book with the title when only the précis or being tagged/shelved was acceptable. I am allowing this because the book was tagged billionaire (I assume, since I am not 100% sure of the book and am going by the link in the captain's tracking post) and I pointed that out to other teams throughout the week, I was not able to do so here because she posted so near the deadline. I will not accept incomplete posts without links and proper qualifications going forward.

Most of the other errors were how the book qualified. Like I said above, I had been correcting errors as I noticed and somehow missed several here. My mistake and I'm sorry! I am just pointing them out for future reference.

J.C. - Your second book, The Billionaire's Virgin, qualified by being tagged. The title doesn't count and it isn't in the précis.

Emelie - Saying the MC is a Billionaire, doesn't tell me how the book qualified. It is included in the précis for this book.

Carmen - Your second book qualifies by being tagged billionaire, it is not included in the précis. Looks like that might just be a copy/paste error.

Stefanie - Like Emelie, just saying the MC is billionaire doesn't tell me how you know that. In your book it is included in the précis.

Sorry to be so Grinch-y about it all, but hopefully it prevents future problems! 🤞🏼😊
