Please post reviews as follows:
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Review: post link
Buddy: post link
Pages: # + post link
Words: Time
How it fits: “Stuart needs "space" and "time," as if this were physics and not a human relationship.”

Rules:
*Books must be read and reviewed from April 1st to June 30th. Winners will be announced on July 1st.
*Books must be 100 pages to count (using the most rated edition on GR)
**Books read that are under 100 pages will count toward page points
**Books that are DNF’d can count toward pages. A review and/or status updates is still required.
**Manga/graphic novels and poetry books will not be accepted for this challenge.
*Four or more detailed status updates can be used in place of a review.
*Buddy reads must take place within this group to count for bonus points.
**You must make a minimum of four comments on a buddy read to earn points.

Points:
*One point for every book read and reviewed that works with one of the below categories
*Three points for every buddy read that takes place within our group (you must leave four comments on the thread for it to count).
*Five points for reading and participating in the group book of the month discussion (must leave four comments on the thread to count)
*Five points for every 1000 pages read
*50 bonus points if you find every word on the list (this is repeatable. Ex: you find each word twice, you’ll get 100 bonus points)

The general challenge rules can be found here.

How to find Words:
Words from the word list should be found as you read your book. When you turn in your review for a book you will list the word(s) found and give the sentence and page number/percent where the word was found within the book. If you listen to an audiobook, try to find a kindle copy and search for words if you can’t remember their location.

**one book can be used for multiple words. (up to a limit of 5 words per book)
For example:
Diadem of Blood and Bones by Ripley Proserpina has the words summer, coffee, date, book, meeting, tired, etc. in the text. You would choose up to five (5) words off the scavenger hunt list to use for this book.

**when posting reviews do not edit your posts as Andrea will not know what the original posted words were. Please reply to your original message and let Andrea know what you want to change. You can change up to 20 words so pick your words carefully!

Night After Night (Seductive Nights, #1) by Lauren Blakely
Review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
Pages: 250
Words: Water, Work, White, Night, Time
How it fits: “Seriously? Did he think that line was going to work? She headed to the other end of the bar to tend to a pair of blondes in low-cut halter tops, hoping they’d be less likely to hit on her. It was San Francisco though, so you never knew. But then, she was used to it. Being propositioned simply came with the territory of tending bar, and Julia Bell let all the come-on lines she heard roll off her every night, like water off a duck’s back. Most of the time she barely even noticed them – they became the white noise, along with sounds of beers being poured, glasses being washed, music being played overhead at the bar she was part owner of.”

("It is rare," the king began and his voice was as cold as the ice itself, "that we are visited by a deity.")
90 %

Es gab nicht einmal einen großen Kleiderschrank, hinter dessen Mänteln ein Abenteuer warten konnte.
(There wasn't even a large wardrobe, in which an adventure might be waiting behind the coats.)
26 %

Wie eine warme Tasse Tee nach einem langen Wintertag im Schnee.
(Like a warm cup of tea after a long winter's day in the snow.
