message 8: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments Hello everyone!

I'm soo excited Bingo is starting again!

I'm gonna try to think of team names while I'm at work.

We also need to decide on team captain.

I'm just wondering, has anyone not played before?

Also, where is everybody from?

I live in Illinois.


message 9: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments Hi all! I've played the last two games of Bingo and I was captain last time :) I'll have a think of names too. I'm from Scotland!


Amy ~Lover of Books~ | 400 comments Hi, this is my first time playing this. I'm also from Illinois too Alyssa!


message 11: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments Amy if you need any help just ask! I've played a few times now and I'm happy to help :)


message 12: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments Lucky Sevens
Seven Sinners
Seven Sexy Supe's

Just a few suggestions :)


message 13: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Beyers (mandybeyers) | 346 comments *Woo hoo! Hi, Teammates! I played last round and I have also played in all the games over in the M/M Romance group. I guess I'm just a Bingo junkie!

*I'm from Texas

*Carlyn, I like all your suggestions :)

Thank you!

I like the first two suggestions.


message 15: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments Hey All!! I'm Kimberly from California.
This is my third time playing. I'm horrible at making up names, but I like the ones Carlyn thought of too.

I'll try to think up a name for our team but I can't promise it will be in English.


message 16: by Alyssa (last edited Jun 15, 2012 09:20PM) (new)

Alyssa (lyssad87) | 974 comments -- I like your suggestions, Carlyn. :-) (I totally forgot to think of some today. Whoops.)

--Yay, Amy! You're gonna have fun!

- This will be my 4th time playing Bingo. I missed out on Round 1. I, like Carlyn, was a captain last time. I wouldn't mind doing it again, and I guess Carlyn wouldn't mind either. (Maybe?) But, if either of you, Kimberly or Mandy, would like a shot at it, just speak up. :-)

So, I have managed to think of something for a team name while I was typing the previous stuff.

Carlyn kind of gave me the idea when she mentioned Seven Sinners. It made me think of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Here are my suggestions:

Seven Deadly Sins
Seven Deadly Ladies
Seven Deadly Sirens
5 of 7 Deadly Sins (cuz there is 5 of us on the team)
5/7 Deadly Sins
Seven Sexy Sins or Seven Sexy Sinners

Or just some kind of creature that is ferocious, with lots of teeth and claws. ROAR!!


Amy ~Lover of Books~ | 400 comments I like the Seven Deadly Sirens or the Seven Deadly Sins!


message 18: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments I'm voting for Seven Sexy Sins!

I've never been a captain, but I'd like to give it a try! Amy and Mandy, if either of would like to do it, cool with me!

This round is going to be FUN!!!


message 19: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments I'm happy to let someone else go for the captain :) and I like Seven Sexy Sins too :)


Amy ~Lover of Books~ | 400 comments I don't want to be captain since this is my first time playing this.


message 21: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments that's what I did Amy. I played two rounds and then I was captain so I could understand how the game worked. :)


message 22: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments Is everyone okay with Kimberly being Captain and the team name being Seven Sexy Sins? BTW I'm going to send out friend requests, it help's to keep track of how everyone is getting on :)


message 23: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments Sounds like a plan to me!

How about this:
I'll send Steph a message letting her know I'm captain of Team Seven Sexy Sins so we can get the party started!


message 24: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29004 comments Love the name, ladies! Happy Reading!

I've never read anything by Kelley Armstrong. I hear she's a good author but I've never been drawn to her. I'm looking forward to your review!

I've only read her YA book series, The Darkest Powers and the first book, The Gathering in the Darkness Rising series by her and I enjoyed these books. I have not read any of her adult series before.
--------------------------------------------------
Is it all right if I change The Calling (Darkness Rising, #2) by Kelley Armstrong as my free space book and Ascend by Amanda Hocking my young adult paranormal?


message 36: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments I'm going to read Infinity (Chronicles of Nick, #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon for the YA shelf.

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments Kimberly's review of Shadowland
3 stars, Finished 17 June

I don't normally like YA books because I can't get into the mindset of a teenager anymore.
This teenager was different. I swear she's a 30 year old in the mind of a 16 year old.
I laughed while reading this. The lines the author gave Suze, the mediator, were funny. Who tells her fellow classmate she's going to break her fingers after school during her first two days of school?
I guess the author wanted to portray Suze as a confident teenager trying to adapt to her new environment because all of the years she's spent dealing with ghosts who are trying to adapte to the fact that they are in a new environment now that they're dead.
OMG! Did that possible run-on sentence sound like I'm trying to write a term paper about this book?

This series sounds like it could be fun to keep up with.


message 41: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments WOO HOO! I figured out how to link to a review!!!

The powers of cut and paste are flowing though me.
heheheheeee! :D


message 42: by Mandy (new)

Mandy Beyers (mandybeyers) | 346 comments I am going to read Need (Need, #1) by Carrie Jones for ya-paranormal. I haven't picked my free space book yet :)

Hope you all have had a great weekend!


message 43: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments ROFL! Go, Kimberly! Love your "headin-to-term-paper-territory" review!


message 44: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments I'm going to read Angels of Darkness by Ilona Andrews for the free space read!


message 45: by Carlyn (new)

Carlyn | 466 comments So how is everyone getting on with their books? I'm almost finished my YA book then I'll start on my free space.

Carlyn | 466 comments Infinity (Chronicles of Nick, #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Shelf: Young Adult Paranormal
Finished: 19/06/2012
Rating: 4 Stars.


I'm a really big fan of Sherrilyn's Dark Hunter series but I'm not a big fan of YA (it makes me feel old now!) so I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book, but I'm happy to report I was very wrong! I loved it!
I always liked Nick as he had a wicked sense of humour and because he took care of the people he loved so it was great to go back to his teenage years to see what really shaped him and to see how he became involved in the Dark Hunter world in the first place.
As usual the writing is fantastic by Kenyon and the characters are some of the best I have read. You easily fall in love with every single one of them.
I will happily read the next installment in the Chronicals of Nick series and I would easily recommend it to anyone.


Amy ~Lover of Books~ | 400 comments I finished my free space book: The Calling (Darkness Rising, #2) by Kelley Armstrong (Finished 6/19/2012 - 5 stars)

Review/Thoughts:
It was an amazing book! I enjoyed all the action that was going on. There was a lot tension between everyone which is understandable because they escaped a helicopter crash and is on the run from some people. I'll definitely read the third and final book in this trilogy due to release sometime in 2013.

(I hope that's good enough for a review/my thoughts on this book. I'll now move on to my young adult paranormal book which I've got on hand)

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments Hey Team!
I was on a roll reading this past weekend but I've slowed down. I finished my YA book in one sitting, which is rare for me. I started my Free Space book and I'm taking my time with that one.
How's everyone else doing?


message 49: by Kimberly (new)

Kimberly (gravy) | 530 comments Carlyn - Did you mean "19/06/2012" for your review date?

Amy - I think the review looks good. I'm glad you liked the book. I'll have to put it on my potential TBR list.

:D

Thanks! It was hard writing it without spoiling it since it is book two in the series.
