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:

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

Review

Susan Mallory is one the authors who introduced me to contemporary romance, I have read nearly all of her Fool's Gold books but for some reason hadn't really gone out of that series. Based on the description for this book I had though that I wouldn't like it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I fell in love with the Family and Zach, though David was a little brat who had no business asking someone to marry him if he was just going to cheat. But I digress, it was romantic and fun, and when the family went through some tough things I felt it with them.

Honestly the only reason I didn't give this a 5 star is because I felt that the relationship between Katie and Zach could have been more of the main focus, months literally went buy without me realizing it because nothing happened. One day they meet, a few things happen and next thing you know they've been working together for 4 months. Like where did the time go?

Overall I think this was an excellent introduction to the series, and thank god David and Mia didn't get married cause David was an immature brat compared to Mia.

Fallen Academy Year One (Fallen Academy, #1) by Leia Stone
Review: I enjoyed this story. The setting for this story about Angels is in Los Angeles after it is affected by the war between good and evil. Symbolically the north part of the city is where the Fallen Academy is located and in the southern part of the city the Tainted Academy is located. In place of college, the main character Brielle Atwater along with others in her class, are forced to attend technical training at one the schools according to the gifts they were exposed to as small children in the war. The challenges of the first year are highlighted. There were some things in the book that were distracting but I was entertained despite the missteps. I will read on in this series😊

Rating: 3 stars
Review:

I don't know if it's because it has been so long since I've read the other two books. But I didn't really enjoy this one as much as the others. I remember really loving the first book, and being excited to read the second one. This one just missed the mark for me. It was still enjoyable to read, and I'm glad I finished the trilogy, and there was a HEA, but it just didn't capture as much as the other books.

Also I am more than halfway done my book and will be done tomorrow most likely, then the Angels shelf call will be completed.

Today is a shelf call day as well, so once it's been posted I will post the link in this thread
