This particular game requires that you complete LOST 2020 first, since you use the date of completion to determine your books for this game.

Directions:
Read 10 books which were:
1. added to your TBR in the past 6 months AND
2. were published prior to the date you completed LOST 2020 (part 1).

I can't believe it's time for this already! I've read 3 of 10, and was feeling good because the widget says I'm "on track." I never even got to "Found" last year, and I guess I may not this year either.

Dee (austhokie) | 2569 comments Dee

finished LOST: 12 September 2020 - can go back 6 months - purchased after March 12 2020

finished: 9/10

1 - Loving Their Vixen Mate - purchased March 17, 2020; published Sept 10, 2014 - not a horrible PNR but wasn't my favorite - likely because its book 4 in a series i've not read before (naughty me...) - but i'm intrigued enough that i want to see if i can get the previous 3. 3 stars.
2 - By the Hour - purchased March 23, 2020; published April 25, 2017 - this was much more on the psychological side of dominance and sexual relations - i liked it as it was something different - 3.5 stars
3 - Touch You Now - purchased April 1, 2020; published April 4 2020 - Carly Phillips is pretty much a go-to comfort read author for me - i didn't realize initially that this was a book that she republished, but thankfully i hadn't read it initially - decent comtemp romance - 3 stars.
4 - Chasing Dreams - purchased April 24, 2020; published March 19, 2018 - this book just disappointed me - it felt very clunkily written and the plot felt like i'd read it several times (injured ballerina comes home, falls in love, but wants to go back to the spotlight) - very underwhelmed...2 stars overall
5- Mine Until Moonrise - purchased May 8, 2020; published Sept 27. 2019 - i normally love Jennifer Bernard's stuff - but this one just felt forced to me - the romance was so-so and the chemistry just wasn't there - 2.5 stars
6 - Alien Mischief - purchased May 30, 2020; published Jan 31, 2019 - wasn't my favorite alien marriage romance - this is definately not a series you can pick up in the middle and understand, i really need to go back to the beginning i think - 2.5 stars
7 - The Chase - purchased June 1, 2020; published Aug 4, 2018 - this solidifyed why Elle Kennedy should be an autobuy author for - i loved seeing the guy being the introvert and the misunderstood girl felt unique, even if it wasn't really - but it did feel like the other guy was supposed to be the hero...not who it finally ended up being...so a bit conflicted...3 stars
8 - The Heartbeat Hypothesis - purchased June 12, 2020; published Mar 20, 2017 - decent NA romance; my biggest issue was that Jake just accepted Audra having his sisters heart with no huge issues and you never really found out what happened to her (just a lot of debate) - 3 stars
9 - Playing Dirty purchased July 12, 2020; published Jan 27, 2015 - ohh this one hit all my happy spots - and my not christmas secret santa bought me the first 2 in the series, so i can get caught up - enough spice without going overboard and there was a solid story supporting it. 3.5 stars
10 - Spurred - purchased July 25, 2020; published Jan 16, 2018 - decent erotic romance but i felt like you just got dumped into the story, there was no story building prior to the mc showing up and the 2 guys deciding she was theirs...3 stars

The date to use is 6 months back from September 4 (I.e., March 4) forward...no end date on adding....just be sure the book was published prior to Sept. 4

Actually, now I am not sure I understand how this works. Using the finish date of Sept 4 for Lost . . . Is any book added AFTER 9/4 also eligible for Found. Eg could a book added on 9/20 be counted as a found book?


message 50: by Dee (new)

Dee (austhokie) | 2569 comments they have to be added to be TBR in last 6 months; and published before the date you finished lost - personally, i'm horrible about adding newly purchased books to goodreads, so i just used my amazon records to pick my books
