Lisarenee | 7659 comments Wow! This one sounds challenging. It's amazing there is some places that keeps track of what state books take place in.


Lacy♪ ♫Movements of a Demigod ♪ ♫ (lb3553) | 466 comments This definitely sound challenging, but I will definitely give it a try.

Heather T (horrorvacui000) I don't know if I'm actually going to participate in this, but if you guys don't mind I wouldn't mind helping you find books that fit for different states. I don't know if you want me to post here or make a side thread. Just let me know.
It's a great idea for a challenge.


message 6: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments Heather, Good idea. I'll try to make a post for keeping track of what books take place in what states.

Oddrun, We could always spin off with another challenge in the future going towards other places.


message 7: by Stephanie (new)

Stephanie Tuell (booksloveme) | 111 comments I think an outside thread where everyone can list where a book takes place would be good idea.


message 8: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments Made it. It's listed in the Reading Challenges folder under the Topic heading - Log for Keeping Track of Books for 50 States Challenge. Feel free to add books. I'll try to sort them out at the top for everyone.

message 13: by Lisarenee (new)

Lisarenee | 7659 comments I need to go out and buy No Mercy. Thanks for reminding me it's out Lacy. How was Raised by Wolves?


Lacy♪ ♫Movements of a Demigod ♪ ♫ (lb3553) | 466 comments I really enjoyed Raised by Wolves. It was different from what I had expected. Some of the people I know who have read it said that it annoying and a little repetitive because it gives you glimpses into the wolves' mind. Since their thinking is more simplistic than a humans their thoughts are one word sentances that are mostly based on their needs which I found to be kinda cool. I definitely would recommend that you try it.

I didn’t like it much. It was annoying and too much like Twilight; the whole wolf connection, breaking out of the pack to form a new one, love connection at first sight.


Lacy♪ ♫Movements of a Demigod ♪ ♫ (lb3553) | 466 comments Yeah I didn't much care for the whole love connection at first sight either. Normally if it is a bit annoying I can look past it but Twilight was beyond ridiculous. I felt like Byrn was more relatable than Bella. I think that the next book will be better, but for a first in a series I though it was good.


message 17: by Sashana (new)

Sashana I plan to read the second book though; I’m interested to see what will happen.


Lacy♪ ♫Movements of a Demigod ♪ ♫ (lb3553) | 466 comments Yeah, it is definitely on my TBR list.

You just need to do like me and get yourself and excel spreadsheet to keep them all straight and try to find books that will work for as many challenges as possible. Now that I think about this I may have an obsession. :)


message 30: by Sashana (new)

Sashana I might have to do that, I have no clue how to use excel though; I'm going to make some shelves for challenges too.

That's good, Lacy. You set a goal and read the books. I'm too scatter brained, but I do want to finish all the challenges that I entered though.

Heather T (horrorvacui000) Rebecca, how was Heat Wave? I've been in the middle of it for a year now. I didn't get bored with it, but I put it down to finish a library book and never went back.


message 36: by Rebecca NJ (last edited Sep 24, 2010 05:20PM) (new)

Rebecca NJ (njreader) | 1945 comments Heather, Heat Wave was good. The one thing that bothered me while I was reading it was the closeness to the TV show (even cases I might have remembered) when in hindsight I realized that it should be because he was "Rick Castle." I would recommend finishing it if you are a fan of the show.


message 37: by Sashana (new)

Sashana Where would I put Water for Elephants? They travel around a lot in this book.

Sashana Lacy, how did you know before hand which state the books took place in?


Lacy♪ ♫Movements of a Demigod ♪ ♫ (lb3553) | 466 comments On our library's website you can actually loook up books by where they take place at. That helped me to come up with a list of books to read, but some of them may change later on.


message 41: by Sashana (new)

Sashana Wow, that's a cool feature to have.


Lacy♪ ♫Movements of a Demigod ♪ ♫ (lb3553) | 466 comments Yeah, I didn't even know they had it until I was requesting books the other day and saw that you could filter the search by that.


message 43: by Sashana (new)

Sashana I just checked my library's website, it can't do it.


Lacy♪ ♫Movements of a Demigod ♪ ♫ (lb3553) | 466 comments That sucks! It will definitely make it harder to find books to read.

message 47: by Theresa (new)

Theresa | 6 comments WOW! I would love to tackle this challenge. I will accept all hints help and otherwise useful info. I sorry i am not understanding how to list though. Would someone be kind enough to explain this to me?! thanks theresa


message 48: by Deana (new)

Deana Pittman just copy and post the state list.....then as you read a book that is set in that state, just add it (or list books you want to read and cross off as you read....this seems to be a very flexible group!)


message 49: by Theresa (new)

Theresa | 6 comments thank you sweetie! As soon as my son or grandkids get here i will ask them to do that. I am not sure what you mean or know how,so thank you again soo much. I was able to print list for my own use but that is the extent of my know how other than email. lol


message 50: by Deana (new)

Deana Pittman You can type your list of states.....and then each time you want to add something, go back to that message and choose "edit" and it will let you go back in and type another book, etc. or type "FINISHED" by a book on your list. It is really easy.....I still have trouble with the crossing out! Ha!
