Wait are there prompts? To "kill" the ghosts?


message 5: by Aarja, Founder & Groovy Thinker :D (new)

Aarja (groovythinker) | 1885 comments Mod
Yes! In the SS (spreadsheet).

I know I'm supposed to be a mod so most people might ask me but I am confused :d

Um can you just tell me here... I am really confused.. sorry.

Okay! So, in the SS (click the link), you have the ghosts. And prompts. And related to those prompts, you have to complete your books. If at the start, you start a random book, check after reading in which prompts it would fit. For example, I start a book which is the script of the play 'Wicked'. After reading, I can fit it in the prompt - 'Read a book that features floating or flying.'

Questions :-

Will we get extra points if we read it with our team member or any of our friends??

Do we have to read with every prompt in order to kill the ghosts??

Hey Ayesha!
Ok I had similar questions that Aarja answered so I'll reply
Yes for a buddy read there are extra points, but the buddy read has to be within the group, and also there are certain buddy read rules that you can find in the rules folder of the group.
We don't have to follow all the prompts, but on killing a ghost we get extra points. But we can definitely read books outside of prompts, then we will get points as per the number of pages.
And also I think that one of the prompts is enough to kill that one ghost, but I'm not very sure about that, so I'll wait for Aarja to reply.
Hope that cleared up some things :)

Aarja (groovythinker) | 1885 comments Mod
Oh, so basically you have to read all the 6 prompts in order to kill one ghost. They don't have to be in order, you can read any prompt from the ones you got :)


message 12: by Aahana , aka Aelin Whitethorn :) (new)

Aahana  ♥ | 1006 comments Mod
Alright, but if one book follows more than one of those prompts, it counts right?


message 13: by Aarja, Founder & Groovy Thinker :D (new)

Aarja (groovythinker) | 1885 comments Mod
No...you have to read 18 different books, for now. And according to your goals, I'm sure you will accomplish it :D


message 14: by Aahana , aka Aelin Whitethorn :) (new)

Aahana  ♥ | 1006 comments Mod
OK! :)

So team, what all are you planning to read for the challenge?

My tbr -

Siege and Storm
Ruin and Rising
The Sun Sister
Six of Crows
Crooked Kingdom
Breathless
The Assassin's Blade
Sense and Sensibilty

Then I have some e-books I want to read but I am not sure which, but hopefully they will be something that can match the prompts.


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

I was also planning on reading Ruin and Rising! And I'm thinking of reading Renegades and the first book in the Shaw Confessions.

Have you read all the previous books of Shadow and Bone? Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm?


message 25: by Aahana , aka Aelin Whitethorn :) (new)

Aahana  ♥ | 1006 comments Mod
Ooh yeah, Renegades, I want to read that sometime too.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

I have read both Shadow And Bone and Siege And Storm. I was thinking of just reading Ruin And Rising books I don't really remember what happened in it... Is this your first time reading the series or are you rereading it?


message 27: by Aahana , aka Aelin Whitethorn :) (new)

Aahana  ♥ | 1006 comments Mod
First time! It's so good so far :)

Yeah, I mean, I read it after I watched the movie and I loved that movie. So apparently I liked the book too, but that was like six years ago when I used to have a crush on Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner and that changed. Probably my book taste is changed.
It doesn't deserve all the hate it gets. It's a pretty little mediocre fantasy...Oh you know, you can read Midnight Sun without actually reading the other books because it's the same story from different perspective.

We start today!
Please watch out for the prompts! It's fine if you don't look for a book that specifically matches the prompts, but some of them can be there in the books you may read. Like twilight might have some of the prompts. Please pay attention to that, it will get us extra points!


message 45: by Aahana , aka Aelin Whitethorn :) (new)

Aahana  ♥ | 1006 comments Mod
And also, I can manage the spreadsheet! As soon as you think you find a prompt, please put a message here along with the number of pages in the book and the page on which the prompt matches. I'll add it to the spreadsheet. I already got some, so watch out for that :)


message 46: by Aahana , aka Aelin Whitethorn :) (new)

Aahana  ♥ | 1006 comments Mod
And I have almost covered all of Ghost 1 with my 4 books (currently reading and will read this month) so we got that one! Just 2 prompts in it are left, please check it out and tell me if you have them! i'll add your name so you get credit for finishing the prompt.


message 47: by Aahana , aka Aelin Whitethorn :) (new)

Aahana  ♥ | 1006 comments Mod
And also, you let me know if you follow a prompt and I'll do the needful. But you also need to post your books in the review thread, regardless of the prompts, in the format mentioned in the thread, to get the page points!
BTW be sure to post in the thread title - Team Unicorn review, so we don't accidentally give our points to another team :D

message 49: by Aahana , aka Aelin Whitethorn :) (new)

Aahana  ♥ | 1006 comments Mod
Sure sara! You can start reading, check out the spreadsheet, and try to follow the prompts. Like im sure someone will read a book with the word "smile" in it! So please look out for that. And once you get a prompt, comment the details as mentioned in the spreadsheet here, so I'll add them in there.
Also post the books on the team unicorn review thread, so we can get the page points, independent of the prompts!
