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

Can someone please contact Vicki :)


message 9: by ☘KathyD☘ (new)

☘KathyD☘ | 422 comments Stacey. . .how do you feel about being captain?


message 10: by Stacey (last edited Sep 18, 2019 08:10AM) (new)

Stacey (boydsmom) | 328 comments I would rather not Captain as I'm currently Captaining in 2 other challenges, but can do it if necessary.

I'll try to PM Vicki.

And to be honest, I'm terrible with coming up with names, so if you have any ideas, they will probably be better than anything I can come up with. :)


message 11: by ☘KathyD☘ (new)

☘KathyD☘ | 422 comments I'll give captain a try. . .I haven't done it, so please bare with me. =)
As for names. . .I suck at it also. . .I'll see what I can come up with though!


message 12: by Stacey (new)

Stacey (boydsmom) | 328 comments We'll try to make it easy on you. :)

We can try to make something out of our names, or something Bingo-ish, or I can hit one of the random name generators -- which are usually humorous -- we may end up the Happy Hippopotamuses or something. ;P


message 13: by ☘KathyD☘ (new)

☘KathyD☘ | 422 comments I hit up one of those name generators. . .the first name I got. . .Jumping Bedtime Operatives. . .the ones that came after weren't too fun or funny. . .I'll see what else I can come up with! =)


message 14: by ☘KathyD☘ (new)

☘KathyD☘ | 422 comments OK. . .that name generator thing is hysterical! I've never seen so many strange word combos ever. . .and I'm an editor!

Here are a few that stood out to me that we could probably tweak to work. . .I'm very much open to any and all ideas! =)

Mysterious Slammers (Mysterious KSV)
The Novelty Diggers (Novelty Readers)
Optimistic Puppets (Optimistic Bingo Readers)
Dirty Court Llamas (just seriously funny)
Humble Laughing Grumblers (Laughing Grumblers)


message 15: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 124 comments Hey girls, how's everyone? Thanks to Stacey for PMing me or I'd have never found this! I don't know how I miss these things and others find them right away, but thanks.

I had the "thrill" of being on jury duty all day yesterday so when I got home I was pretty wiped out so I did read but didn't get on the computer much, but I'm sorry to get here so late.

Names...hmmmm...
Triple Threat Bingo Babes (Broads, Beasts) ??
Triple Threat Bingo Busters
Bingo Buster Babes (gotta be something other than babes, but I love alliteration!)
Wazz up Bingo Girls
Hustlin' Honeys
Bingo Bunnies
Beauties Busting Bingo

Review — Another great installment in this series! This book rings in the new year with an obsessed fan killing for Eve. I enjoyed how the story came together and unfolded, and of course spending time with beloved characters...I can’t believe I’ve reached the 40-book mark with this series.

Week 1 Angels

The Savior (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #17) by J.R. Ward
The Savior, J.R. Ward – 9/24/19 – ✮✮✮✮✮
Pages: 416
Review — I was over the moon when I heard Murhder’s story was going to be told! This book did not disappoint. Murhder’s history has been told in pieces here and there throughout the series. He’s been an interesting enigma that I wanted to know more about. . .now that I know more. . .I want more! It’s hard to have just one favorite brother with so many amazing males to choose from, but Murhder is a top five favorite for certain!

For as amazing as this story was, there was a lot of angst and pain. John Matthew and Xhex had some stumbling blocks—especially with Murhder back in the picture—and Sarah had her own demons to battle beyond wrapping her head around another species.

Murhder and Sarah don’t make a lot of sense on paper, so to say. However, they really do work. All things considered in this world, these two have the most straightforward and sort of uncomplicated path to each other. There are plenty of things that try to keep them apart, but somehow they manage to discuss and deal as adults. While there is never a true “happily ever after” in real life, I appreciate Ms. Ward’s approach with her various characters and couples. In this case, there was enough going on with each character as an individual that there didn’t need to be a ton of extra drama to make them work. I look forward to more Murhder and Sarah in future installments. . .and have to find the patience now that I’m caught up on the series!

Hey y'all! The week is going well for me -- but I'm off Friday to go to the beach, so that makes for a nice week anytime.

I should have my book finished sometime early Thursday -- I had a meeting during reading time yesterday that set me back a day. And I'll post my Free space book later tonight.

Kathy, have you read all the BDB books? There are a few in the middle that I have NO desire to read, but I'm trying to figure out if I can pick the series back up again because the last few books look pretty good.


message 40: by ☘KathyD☘ (new)

☘KathyD☘ | 422 comments I have indeed! I have Blood Truth to read yet, but that's on next month's list of books. It's part of the BDB legacy series. I love the series. . .but I did a reread of it over the past year and a half and I have to say, missing a book in the series will mean you miss some of the story building of other characters. . .some that may be the focus of future books. If that doesn't bother you, then I say skip ahead.

Now I just have to be patient for November to come so I can read Where Winter Finds You. . .then I have to wait until spring for The Sinner!

Rating: 5 amazing stars

Review

Wow! Just wow! Can Jennifer L. Armentrout ever write! She is the one who introduced me to sci-fi with Obsidian and I've been a fan ever since. I read book 1 in The Dark Elements series quite a while back so it's hard to remember a lot but I do remember being team Roth. Now I'm more conflicted. I grew to like Zayne a LOT more in book 2 and I thought I might be leaning toward him but I just can't do it. Roth is just so protective

The world buiding that Armentrout does in this series is nothing short of incredible and so credible! She throws in those plot twists that you just never see coming and she leaves the ending the way she did! BUT I inadvertently read book 3 in August of last year so I already know what happens next; however, I have to re-read it now while book 2 is fresh in my mind. LOL


message 42: by Vicki (new)

Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 124 comments Does our vampire book have to be off the one list we were given? Also, just double checking, our books need to be 200 or more pages, right?


message 43: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23482 comments There were 2 lists given Vicki, the popular list and the SOS Bookshelf Vampire shelf.

But any book that is tagged vampires qualifies, and yes minimum page count is 200.

Pages: 242
How it Fits: MPG Paranormal>Angels
Rating: 3 stars
Review: Angels (outside of Nalini Singh) are really not my favorite characters -- so this was actually not terrible. The MC is likeable -- although she is apparently a special snowflake that has powers she hasn't found yet, and at least 3 men are fighting over her so that's a little eyerolling. The story and world were interesting and there seems to be room to grow and the overarching story is intriguing. The pacing was a bit off though. Some things felt really rushed and way too much time was spent on others. But maybe that will even out in the next few books.
