April 2019 Scavenger Hunt
Begins: 01Apr19 / Ends: 30Apr19


.

Your challenge is to find the following words/phrases in the TEXT of the books you are reading this month.

You are NOT restricted to one book / one word; you may find as many of the words/phrases in a single book as you like. If you find all the words in one book you are really lucky!

This month's scavenger list are words that were found in
The Constant Princess (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels, #6) by Philippa Gregory The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory
NOTE - you may NOT use this book for the scavenger hunt!


BASIC word list
ale
battle
cushion
entertainment
gesture
ivory
joint
laughter
obedient
quarrel
rumor
suite
underwear
widow
young

Optional/BONUS word list
father-in-law
harem
musk
pomegranate
tureen




===========================================

Unless a variation is specified above, words must match exactly, with the following exceptions: I will accept a plural/singular version, or differences in spelling between British and American English (e.g. honor or honour). But those are the ONLY deviations allowed. So if you are looking for "vivid" - I will NOT allow "vividly."

All books used must be a minimum of 100 pages long - Page length determined by HARDCOVER 1st edition. If there is no Hardcover, then the most popular paperback governs page #.

You may read in any format - text, audio or e-book. If using audio or e-book I suggest using Amazon.com's "look inside" feature to get a page number for you quote.

You MUST finish the book before you can claim credit for finding the word/phrase.

EXAMPLE of a successful post:
Special - The Cat Who Saw Red ✔ - 29Jan19 - pg 91 - "What's her special interest in food?"

Have Fun!
