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 | 19211 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.

Lisa (mooselover) | 2031 comments Hi
My name is Lisa. I live in London, England although I am originally from New Haven, CT.
I work for a large British retailer in their Head Office and in February I will have completed 34 years service.
I am an exclusive MM reader and have been since April 2013.
I take part in only a few challenges throughout the year because I co-ordinate the Team Challenges in another group which keeps me busy all year.

I am going to friend you all because I had a lot of people who were able to friend me and bypass my question, so I made it impossible hard to answer.

Sassafrass (sass-a-frass) | 3235 comments Hi Laura, and Hi to the rest of the team.

I'm Sassafrass and I live in the US on the East Coast (Pennsylvania) with my husband, a tween and teen, and my dog. It's a zoo in my house most days and I love to be able to escape into a good book.

I love all types of books but my least favorites are Christian/Inspirational and Non-fiction. I can usually find something to read in any genre though so if forced to read those I can make it work.

My favorite genre is contemporary with UF/PNR coming up a close second.

I too am going on vacation, I leave on the 16th so I can make my choice of book before leaving and read it while I'm gone for sure. I'll have some internet so I can check in while I'm away too because I don't get back until the 23rd.

Fran | 10936 comments Hi everyone! I'm Fran, and like all of you, very excited to play!
I'm in NY with my hubby and three kids, two in their 20s and a high school senior. I teach preschool and I love reading romance.

I read both mm and mf, with Contemporary being my favorite romance sub-genre. I love humor, sweetness, holiday, insta-love :)

I might be away for a few days towards the end of December, but I will have internet and will post from my phone.
