Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Hiya, Team Caps! Thanks for volunteering to guide your team through a round of BookShelf Bingo!

Your job, should you choose to accept it, will require a few things:
1 ~ Be our go-to person should we have any questions about your team
2 ~ Organize your teammate's weekly reads for each shelf/category so that the BSB Ninjas can quickly and easily verify and approve your stamp request(s)
2a ~ Create a master list in a post (preferably on the first page of your team's thread) and update it weekly or as often as necessary
2b ~ Post your team's stats on the Captain's Log prior to requesting a stamp
3 ~ Encourage and motivate your team (you may also ask to borrow Judithe's whip whenever necessary)
4 ~ Post regularly to ensure your team is communicating and on track each week
4a ~ Send them a PM and friendly poke if they haven't posted at least once a week, noted their book choice, and/or appear to have dropped out of webspace
5 ~ Send us a PM (Steph, Sandra or Judithe) should you need us for any reason throughout the game

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments Hello!

I recognize both of you from other games. Wow only 3 players per team.

I would really prefer not to be captain. I'm getting married 10/5 and then going on my honeymoon to Disney. So I might get a bit behind on a couple of shelves for a bit. But early enough in the game where I can easily catch up. I have my fingers crossed that I'll have a short kindle book on hand for at least one of the shelves that called around then. I'm sure I'll do at least a little reading here and there.

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Yay! Happy engagement/upcoming wedding, Mary! That's exciting! Congratulations!!


message 8: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments Thank you. We've been living together for 3 years so it's not going to be a huge change. We're just making it legal. Really looking forward to doing Disney without a little kid in toe.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I can tell you from experience that visiting disney world without kids is a lot of fun.

Hi Moondance - if you're willing to be captain, that would be great!

this is one of my favorite games to play and I always find new books and series.

Hi BarbaraAnn! I’ll be happy to captain. It won’t be hard with just three of us.
I suck at team names. I can check the name generator unless either of you have something in mind.


message 14: by BarbaraAnn (new)

BarbaraAnn | 247 comments I have no imagination with names. I did see a team recently use the name Book Hoarders which i thought was creative. I also saw a book club recommendation for Wild Readers which might work.


message 15: by Moondance (last edited Sep 16, 2019 04:53PM) (new)

Moondance (moondance120) | 1746 comments I like both of those.


message 16: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23482 comments Mary, congratulations!!!!!! Glad all that angst over sharing closet space worked out :D


message 17: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments LOL. I still have a little resentment about giving up one of my closets after finally acquiring enough closet space. But I have a kid almost done with college and big plans for her room.


message 18: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23482 comments LOL Does she know that?


message 19: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments Yep. I’ve already moved some clothes into one of her closets.


message 20: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23482 comments Hahahaha


message 21: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments I'm not very good at team names either.

Buried in Books?
Cereal Readers?
The Miss Readers or Ms Readers?
The Logophiles? (a lover of words)


message 22: by Moondance (new)

Moondance (moondance120) | 1746 comments A few I found:

Reading Banshees
Oracles of the Written Word
Mystic Readers
Book Mages

Enjoy! We've been to Disney several times (and have no kids) and really enjoyed it. Although, I'm now a bigger fan of Universal's Harry Potter World. 🤓

Harry potter world sounds amazing


message 25: by BarbaraAnn (new)

BarbaraAnn | 247 comments All of the names look good. I'll vote for Cereal Readers but am ok with anything


message 26: by Moondance (new)

Moondance (moondance120) | 1746 comments Cereal Readers works for me.


message 27: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments Wow. I don't think I've ever had a name suggestion of mine chosen before. I feel so special now.

I usually get hung up on putting the team number in the name.


message 28: by Mary C (last edited Sep 18, 2019 07:23AM) (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments I have a meeting every other Wed for the Elks Lodge (I'm the secretary). Hopefully if we get the opportunity for a winning shelf call, it will fall on a non-meeting week. Because the projected shelf call time is 6pm my time.

It was, kinda like walking around the movie set. So fun!


message 30: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments We did Universal Studios are few years ago. But I know they've expanded Harry Potter World since then so I'm sure we'll be back soon.

Get some rest.


message 37: by Moondance (new)

Moondance (moondance120) | 1746 comments I'm waiting until tomorrow to list my Free Space just in case it works with another challenge.


message 38: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments I'm leaning towards Summoned to Thirteenth Grave for angels. But I might change that once they put out the last set of Lava tasks. I'm hoping they'll do that tomorrow. Hoping I can work a free space and angel book into the first set of tasks.


message 39: by BarbaraAnn (new)

BarbaraAnn | 247 comments I’m also waiting on my free space as I’m playing a team game based on series books


message 40: by Moondance (new)

Moondance (moondance120) | 1746 comments My other challenge did not help me out so I will look for a book for Free Space.

That would be nice.


message 44: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23482 comments I agree, I always make sure to add the release date when I add books, but most probably don't have that.


message 45: by Mary C (new)

Mary C (marymaryalwayscontrary) | 2423 comments I might read Heartless myself. Works for something prickly on cover.


message 46: by BarbaraAnn (new)

BarbaraAnn | 247 comments For free space. i'll read Blaze of Memory which is part of the Psy-Changling series, which is #1 on SOS best paranormal romance series Blaze of Memory (Psy-Changeling #7) by Nalini Singh

BarbaraAnn | 247 comments Week 1 - Angels Completion Post:
The Beautiful Ashes by Jeaniene Frost The Beautiful Ashes (Broken Destiny, #1) by Jeaniene Frost

pgs: 384
Qualification - tagged: 127 times
finished: 9/22/19
rating: ***

review: I've really liked Jeaniene Frost's other books and considering Angels are my least favorite paranormal books, this was better than I thought it would be. The basic plot is Ivy is destined to save the world, Adrian is destined to betray her and destroy the world and they're destined to fall in love. I'll continue the series at some point if it fits into another challenge, but no rush.

This is on my TBR pile. I’ve been hesitant to start it.


message 49: by Moondance (new)

Moondance (moondance120) | 1746 comments My Angel book should be at the library tomorrow. I’m almost finished with my Free Space. I didn’t expect the Queen of Hearts to make me care for her and then break my heart.

Heartless Marissa Meyer
Heartless by Marissa Meyer

3rd book on Best of Stand alone

Read: 09.22.19
Rating: 5 stars
Review:

Three luscious lemon tarts glistened up at Catherine.

Lady Catherine "Cath" Pinkerton is the daughter of the Marquess of Rock Turtle Cove. She is also a young girl whose dream is to open a bakery with her maid and best friend, Mary Ann. The King of Hearts takes a liking to Cath and her whole world changes.

Wow, wow and wow! I didn't know what to expect from this telling of Wonderland. I never planned to care for Cath and her desire to be a baker and choose the man of her dreams. I experienced her dismay when the King seems set on wooing her. I felt the first bloom of love when she falls for Jest, the court joker. Even knowing where Cath would end, I loved her character.

It was a pleasure to visit Wonderland and all it's marvelous occupants. The characters come to life on the pages and the book flows with the story.

This is a story of family obligation, first love, deep friendship, despair and finally true heartlessness. Each page had me turning to see what would happen next. I never expected the ending to break my heart.

I will think of Cath as she was before her heart was broken. I think I'll have to revisit Wonderland with Alice soon.

An excellent book!
