UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments November’s Spell The Month Challenge duration – November 1-30

Using the first letter in the title, or the authors first or last name, spell “November,” “Thankful,” or “Veteran’s Day.”


Example –

N - Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs - Molly Harper
O -
V -
E -
M - Mary Wine - In The Warrior's Bed
B -
E -
R - Roberts, Nora - Vision in White

Please post your stats as x/x so they’re easy for me to spot and update. Truly, I injured my hip in September when I was bending over and using my toes to count! ;)

There are no other restrictions to this challenge. You can post your books any time, and change them as often as you want to, but you can't begin before November 1st.

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Glad to have you, ladies!


message 10: by Katherine (new)

Katherine | 828 comments I need a "U" book, either author or title. Any suggestions?

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Until You by McNaught

Until You by Bertrice Small

Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane

A couple from my TBR list...
Uncertain Magic
Until Forever


message 14: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments You're welcome, Katherine.

There's also Unlawful Contact (I-Team, #3) by Pamela Clare which was amazing and ... you know, a good place to check would be the Spell August threads. Those might be archived now. I'll go check.


message 15: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Here are a couple more -

Upon The Midnight Clear (Dark-Hunter, #12) (Dream-Hunter, #2) by Sherrilyn Kenyon Until Forever by Johanna Lindsey An Unforgettable Lady (Platinum Romance Series) by J.R. Ward


message 16: by Katherine (new)

Katherine | 828 comments What a good idea, I will check the spell August thread. Also you girls have given amazing suggestions. Now I have the problem of deciding. LOL I've wanted to start the I-team series but probably don't want to read out of order and I also want to read Until Forever. For now I put Until You but that might change since I've read it. Thanks again Dhes and Christine.


message 17: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments You're welcome, Katherine! I remember struggling with the U's as well. Good luck!

AND, while I hate condoning reading a book out of order, Unlawful Contact could be read alone without ruining the storyline. HOWEVER, you'll miss the development of a fun relationship that shows up in both UC and NE if you skip Hard Evidence.


message 18: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 39 comments Count me in Dhestiny! I won't be able to finish my October challenge, but I think I'll have more time in November.

But you can still bow at my cyber feet if I finish!

Dina (missdina) | 718 comments I've been listing those two books in several challenges for months, but I always end up reading something else. You know me, I'm too fickle to stick with what I list, LOL.


message 48: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Me too! As a matter of fact, I just posted that very thing, with that very word, "fickle," on another thread. I'm so, so fickle! That's why I try to make these challenges so flexible.

HA! I'm going to start calling them Fickle Friendly Challenges :)
