MountainKat | 19170 comments I think most of you know each other, at least a little, but feel free to introduce yourself again. Please give any relevant information, especially time zone as that helps know when it is best to communicate. 😊

Please select a team leader to help keep track of where your team is in any given task. And as necessary guide discussions for task decisions. Any teammate can report your completions though.

Remember, it is the team's responsibility to notify the host (me) if a teammate fails to complete the task in a timely manner or otherwise goes missing! I am not checking all the team threads regularly to notice and may only check when notified a task is complete.

PS - If you want to be known as anything other than Team 3, you are free to come up with a team name. 😉

I think we need your 5 favourite books as recs.

I should have your personal details like when you joined RRRC, birth month, and to read / read shelves... Pretty sure you were born in the 60s...?

If you otherwise have an opinion on any of the 100 categories, please let us know. Give them a quick review if you can.


message 20: by Jane (PS), Moderator (new)

Jane (PS) | 19344 comments #12 - read a book recommended to you by a teammate.

Could you look at this one as well Michaelle? Make a rec to each of the 3 of us - soonish? You can pick something new OR use our To Read shelves for inspiration (and to avoid double-ups on ones we've already read) 😁

I'll get all our To Read shelves up soon @ #28.

Let me know if YOU have one that you would particularly like me to use for #28.


message 21: by ⚣Michaelle⚣ (new)

⚣Michaelle⚣ (michaelle) | 1187 comments Ok, so I went with your TBR shelves, books I've read and rated highly.

Recs for Shannon:
Trailer Trash
What Remains
The Soldier's Scoundrel

Recs for Lisa:
Ink and Shadows
Kindred Hearts
Dark Edge of Honor


Recs for Jane:
Captive Prince
Inertia
Earth Fathers Are Weird


(I went with 3; if we should only rec one per person, pick the first one please.)

MY 5 Favorite Books:

Whisper x 5

LOL, okay that probably won't work, so add
The 5th Gender
Gyrfalcon (that whole series, TBH)
Bone Rider
Beyond Eden

My TBR: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list... (There's 4000+ books on there so I'm sure you guys can find something to rec me! If this is called on a Bingo category call day, lol, I'd appreciate one that would count there.)

As for the categories, the only one I see that I'm a little iffy on is the series. Is that one any better than Cold Case Psychic? I tried 2 of those and wasn't impressed.

And I'm a little constrained this time around by having to use older books I might already have and haven't gotten to yet, or KU.

Do you have any other series suggestions?

My preference is for ones with Audiobooks since I struggle to get through actual reading now. I fall asleep and it takes me weeks to read one!! LOL!

I don't love them, but maybe some sort of Mpreg options? or that Aiden Bates ones that I haven't ever read etc?

Clutch - Book 2 Bond is my absolute fav this year, but you HAVE to read Clutch first.
Seven Summer Nights
The High King's Golden Tongue
A Villain for Christmas
Stand in Place

(I think I have all of you with at least 2 that you haven't read...)

Shannon - Imagines (5 stars - much better than book 1) Not long enough!
Truth and Consequences
Michaelle - Spirit (Its been a while but I loved this)
Lisa - Rule Breaker or next. Not sure why you have read book 3, but not 1 or 2...

From what I can work out:

Cabrini Law - J, L, M
Fake Boyfriend - J, M
Iron and Works - J, M
Free Fall - J, M
Haven Hart Universe - J, M

Books outstanding and on their shelves for the initials noted. Guessing they all work for you Shannon?

Perhaps Lisa is happy to read some of these series even though they aren't on her shelves?

Cabrini Law definitely suits everyone though. Go with that one for the first series by same author. We can work on the second one as we go :)

Gosh - I missed we all had to read a different book in the same series! I haven't read Cabrini Law, so maybe that one suits?

**edit**
You and M are both currently reading book 2.
Shannon and I haven't read book 1

Hmmm - not ideal.

***edit***

If you all can stand it, I keep coming that to hose mpreg books where it doesn't matter which book you read in the series.

Alternatively we go back to the Protectors - and some of us can do a reread or something...

Im good with MPreg. Do you think the 150 pages minimum might be an issue.

I am starting my journey back to the UK today after 3 weeks in France.
Eurostar very kindly cancelled my train tonight from Paris to London so I gave rebooked for tomorrow morning, so I now have a night in Paris in a hotel so will finish my recs tonight and have a look for some series.
If possible, Id rather not re-read.


message 34: by Shannon (new)

Shannon (pokey36) | 1556 comments I'm not sure the order matters in Cabrini Law and I'm reading the first one now for Bingo, so I could go #2 or higher.

I've got 6 to re-read via audio and 7 & 8 I haven't read or listened to yet. So I'm good with that one. (I'd like to do the audio before I start the next one, so if we do that series, is anyone else up to #6? If not, I'll claim it.)
