44/50

The Case of the Green-Dressed Ghost (Dr Ribero's Agency of the Supernatural Book 1) by Lucy Banks (5/2/15)

1. Accent - His accent was surprisingly rich, and the words flowed round the room like velvet, laden with Spanish undulations, like the tossing of a midnight ocean. (loc 318)
3. Bar - “Would you like a quinoa and hemp bar?” (loc 843)
7. Brass - He’d imagined a stained glass affair, complete with polished brass letterbox and neoclassical pillars. (p 20)
9. County - His most celebrated work, Haytor by Twilight, was exhibited in the Devon County Museum in 1845, shortly after his return from Italy. (loc 2574)
20. Form - Sure enough, the familiar spherical form of Lord Flanburgh could be seen, marching down the stone stairs to greet them. (loc 1169)
21. Genre - It's rather like one of those horror films, he fretted, not that he had much taste for the genre. (loc 120)
22. Glee - Her tone was full of ill-disguised glee, to such a degree that he almost expected her to start rubbing her hands together like a Machiavellian pantomime villain. (loc 575)
25. Half - Her lips tautened to a thin line, and she leant back, glowering over half-rimmed spectacles. (loc 148)
31. Key - Delving into the deep pockets of her voluminous skirts, she pulled out a key, then puffed over to the door like a sponge bobbing in bathwater. (loc 614)
32. Loud - If it had been a different situation, a different place and time, he would have laughed out loud. (loc 148)
34. Major - Judging by his date of death, he hadn't experienced any major problems on his return to England, and had lived there perfectly happily for several years. (loc 2809)
35. Measure - He coughed again and smoothed down his shirt for good measure, waiting for at least one person to smile. (loc 143)
36. Natural - In stark contrast, this woman had all the natural warmth and gentleness of an over-sharpened pencil. (loc 148)
37. Note - It was a strange note, indicating a level of intimacy between sender and recipient, but beyond that he couldn't discern much, only the name and address of the mysterious agency. (loc 35)
38. Organ - "It's my very favourite organ," Mike replied. (loc 1500)
39. Phrase - "Hang on, where did you learn the phrase? (loc 1039)
40. Pitch - In the pitch blackness of the upper hallway, he shuddered suddenly. (loc 815)
43. Record - But for the record, you were looking at the real thing. (loc 711)
44. Rest - The room was so much at odds with the rest of the building that it had completely thrown him off guard, leaving him as confused as a hook-caught fish hauled from the water. (loc 148)
45. Rhythm - Kester, whose heart had nearly settled back into its normal rhythm, felt his chest go tight once more. (loc 2209)
47. Sharp - Her fingers pressed against one another, forming a sharp triangle of disapproval. (loc 147)
48. Song + 49. Time - For two hours, they'd entertained themselves by playing "guess that song", but it wasn't a great way to pass the time, given that they liked completely different music. (loc 1736)
50. Voice - His voice wavered in the silence. (loc 74)

A Kiss for Christmas by Melody Grace (5/5/19)

5. Beat - But Dash didn't miss a beat. (loc 243)
8. Choir - They stayed like that for a long moment watching the choir long enough for Dash to breathe in the scent of her, her silky hair tickling his chin. (loc 893)
10. Dance - They both bobbed in an awkward mirror dance until he finally stood aside with a chuckle to let her through. (loc 703)
11. Dominant - He always seemed so gentle and polite around Juliet, I never for a moment guessed he could have this darker, dominant side lurking beneath all those preppy Oxford shirts. (loc 3852)
12. Drum - His pulse beat like a wild drum in his ears, power surging through him as he dug his fingertips into her lush thighs and took them both higher. (loc 1108)
17. Flag - "Excuse me," I flag a passing security guy. (loc 1716)
18. Flat - From flirting to ice-cold in five seconds flat. (loc 842)
24. Guitar - "That was before I picked up a guitar." (loc 2679)
30. Jazz - I make jazz hands, then immediately wish the ground would swallow me up. (loc 3231)
33. Lyric - There's nobody to bounce ideas off the same way - and no one to call me out when I wind up obsessing over a single lyric or rhythm track. (loc 1805)
41. Play - She couldn't play this game any longer, she needed him too much. (loc 1069)
42. Practice - A I rinse off under the steaming power jets, I try to practice my best nonchalant smile. (loc 2600)
46. Score - "Another way to score points." (loc 2174)

The Early Cases of Hercule Poirot by Agatha Christie (5/21/19)

14. Eighth - Poirot moved a plate of bread and butter the eighth of an inch, and said sharply: "Be exact, my friend." (loc 371)

Carly (car88) | 63 comments MAY 2019 - SCAVENGER HUNT
MUSIC

·Post 26 *FINISHED*

42/50
ACCENT - #11 (loc 617, 8%)
"Nah," I put on my best British accent. "It's only a flesh wound." Both of them stared at me blankly. "Monty Python? Come on people." I sighed and laid back. "I'm dying here."
ALTO
BAR - #5 (loc 17, 3%)
And he'd definitely done something right in his life because Karma had now delivered her here, in person, in his bar. In those heels.
BASS
BEAT - #2 (loc 108, 4%)
"Daisy, stop hitting your brother," I yelled. "We didn't get him patched up so you could beat on him." "He deserves it. Leaving empty cartons of ice cream in the freezer is bullshit."
BLUES - #7 (loc 1243, 43%)
Dozens of brightly colored canvases line the street, abstract slashes of greens and blues morphing into a sketch of Bourbon Street.
BRASS - #7 (loc 2374, 80%)
The metal grows hotter under my touch, the molten steel of the frame binding with the decorative brass edges of the door, sealing her in.
CHOIR - #3 (loc 1629, 70%)
David, Frank, and Ray all chuckled. David nodded. "Preaching to the choir, my friend." I loved a good bro' moment just as much as anyone, but I was anxious with hope for the first time in a long while.
COUNTRY - #3 (loc 527, 24%)
"He was funny. Kind. Smart. Really smart. His only flaw was his love of country music."
DANCE - #11 (loc 1363, 18%)
"Do I make you uncomfortable?" Odin peered down at me strangely. "I don't generally dance with my enemies," I shrugged. "Just a policy."
DOMINANT - #2 (loc 1332, 31%)
"Can't you localize that to her?" "I am," he said, his vicious, stormy eyes locked on mine. Challenging. Dominant. "You're only getting the peripheral magic." He stepped farther into the bedroom. "Alexis, let him go. That's an order." "It's not"-I squeezed harder-"working hours."
DRUM - #1 (loc 3260, 95%)
He could smell brimstone and smoke, but Leo was worried those acrid scents just came from his own beast. His heart beat like a freaking drum inside his chest, and hope clawed at him.
DUET
EIGHTH - #12 (loc 1310, 58%)
When she saw the contents of the eighth stall, she stopped short, her blood turning to ice.
EMBELLISH
ENCORE - #4 (loc 3570, 70%)
"He just popped a cork that's been compacting for a long, long time, love. He's going to have to sleep it off for awhile," Arion tells her. "Emit's already naked if you're expecting an encore for your birthday breakfast," he adds.
FLAG - #5 (loc 303, 31%)
And if that wasn't a huge, red, this-ain't-just-a-fling flag, he didn't know what was.
FLAT - #4 (loc 1411, 28%)
Usually it's mostly flat, but in these jeans, it looks like my belly button has turned into an ass crack.
FLUTE - #7 (loc 1604, 55%)
Phenex waits at the bar, sipping something red out of a champagne flute and looking immensely proud of himself.
FORM - #1 (loc 1345, 39%)
"No!" Did she look like she had time to fill in a patient form? Dax's blood was all over her.
GENRE
GLEE - #2 (loc 728, 18%)
"Holy shit, Alexis. You're a fucking fountain of power. No wonder Kieran is basically pissing himself in glee."
GRAVE - #9 (loc 7014, 66%)
He tossed poor, headless Clarissa aside. "She returns to the grave, eternally unmourned." "Most zombies do," Avalon allowed philosophically.
GUITAR - #6 (loc 1638, 43%)
But if he ever screws her over, he'll find himself playing guitar with his toes and singing out his asshole.
HALF - #9 (loc 9022, 84%)
Trystan didn't even bother to turn around to eviscerate him. He somehow chopped the man in half with his back turned.
HARMONY - #2 (loc 2197, 51%)
The view took his breath away, easily the very best thing about his father's house. It made the odd choice of décor almost bearable. It also had a way of melting his stress and loosening his shoulders, allowing him a few quiet moments of harmony.
HYMN
IMPROVISE
INTERVAL
JAZZ - #4 (loc 2067, 41%)
"Boom." The vampire pauses to give me jazz hands.
KEY - #1 (loc 1317, 38%)
No helpful driver had left keys behind. So she hot-wired the truck.
LOUD - #8 (loc 845, 45%)
Lance followed and grinned at Roi. "Asshole," Roi whispered under his breath, just loud enough for Lance to hear.
LYRIC - #11 (loc 1464, 20%)
"I randomly spout lyrics and poetry when I'm reading the cards. Usually Shakespeare."
MAJOR - #6 (loc 1760, 46%)
"What? It wasn't me," I lie. But only because ego is the major reason most criminal masterminds get caught.
MEASURE - #9 (loc 6665, 62%)
His wife completely believed in him. If he'd lost the game, she still would have believed in him. The value of that was beyond measure.
NATURAL - #6 (loc 557, 16%)
"I meant your ass. It's not natural." Heh. She likes my ass. If being a SEAL makes me a god, then clearly i have the ass of a god.
NOTE - #1 (loc 1066, 31%)
"She has a name that she uses. She's not a thing. She doesn't like to be called Fate. She's Mora." "Right. Mental note." Luke stood on the other side of the sofa, and his glare was on Leo.
ORGAN - #11 (loc 5939, 80%)
He couldn't see the layers of skin, tissues, bones, and organs or stop them with a thought.
PHRASE - #6 (loc 222, 8%)
The Ass of Glory plants his hands behind me on the table, trapping me between two tree trunks that suddenly make me understand the phrase arm porn.
PITCH - #9 (loc 2315, 22%)
Midas pitched the bastard out a second story window. It had taken an extra moment to open the window, but it had been worth it.
PLAY - #2 (loc 1461, 34%)
"I've got a semi-lady wood. He's nothing but a toddler in the Demigod sandbox, but it looks like he's able to play with the big boys."
PRACTICE - #6 (loc 1402, 37%)
"Oh, sure. Here, cat. Puke in a bag. Because we practice that all the time."
RECORD - #9 (loc 3285, 31%)
"I'm selfish, greedy, narcissistic, and - in short - irredeemably Bad." "I don't believe any of that." "You should. It's a matter of public record."
REST - #4 (loc 1912, 38%)
Shera is suddenly at my side, tapping her foot impatiently. "If you miss his entrance, I'll never hear the end of it. Don't make me carry you. It'll just look utterly ridiculous, and neither of us will feel pretty for the rest of the night."
RHYTHM - #4 (loc 2010, 40%)
When he turns and puts out his hand like he's expecting me to dance with him, I get really nervous. Fun fact: fish out of water have better rhythm than I do.
SCORE - #8 (loc 1299, 69%)
Missy took aim, fired, and scored a direct hit to his groin before reloading and then shooting Roi right between the eyes. Neither dart stuck.
SHARP - #2 (loc 4064, 92%)
Intelligent hazel eyes stared out from a wolf's face, and a long pink tongue lolled out over sharp white teeth. "His teeth are even lovely and white in wolf form," I marveled. "See, Mordecai? See why I always harp on you about hygiene?"
SONG - #10 (loc 449, 36%)
·What is your favorite song? I could sing it for you, but you wouldn't be able to hear it. Only alpacas and very rare mice have the ability to hear The Silent Song.
TIME - #1 (loc 37, 1%)
One was good…wings spread from his back. Angels bowed to him. And his brother…he had a really fucking good time as he did his very, very bad things.
VOICE - #3 (loc 162, 9%)
"Eww," the final voice mewled. "There's goo leaking from his face." I rolled my eyes.

Carryovers
1/5
Bowling
MIXER
State Fair
BUMPER CARS
CORN DOG
FERRIS WHEEL - #6 (loc 2695, 70%)
He releases my lips and drops his head into the crook of my shoulder and groans as his release overtakes him, coming with me on the ferris wheel of delight, except I'm pretty sure his heart isn't spinning on the merry go round of terror.
Chicago
PIONEER

Sue Lauzon | 197 comments I have had a slow start to this month due to some personal stuff I need to take care of (my house is in chaos due to a flood in the basement). My reading has been put on the back burner, so to speak. Managed to find a small block of time this morning to do some and managed to find 5 words in that short time. Just one observation and I apologize if someone has already brought it to your attention JoAnne. You have the word county on the list. Should this word be country. I can't see what the word county has to do with the theme of music lol.

I have lists that I choose words from and I try to have some words that are easy and some not so easy to find.
