Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Hi, ladies!
A new player to our group and the game, Midnite Marie, signed up then disappeared. Not only from our group, but from GR. Her profile has been deleted.

This left an opening on your team. I have contacted Taly, a returning player, to see if she's interested in joining in this round. If she doesn't respond in time, or if she declines, Lisa Kay will jump it to save the day. :)

So, don't worry, before the game starts on Sunday, you will have a full team of 5 players.

I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, please feel free to work on a team name and select a team captain.


Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments YAY Hi everyone! I'm really excited about Bingo! I'm from Australia, how about everyone else? It's my 2nd time playing.


message 8: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments Hi, everyone! I'm the "insurance" - LOL! Thought I'd stop by and at least say "Hi!" I've never played before, but I'm willing to give it a whirl, if I'm needed. Looks soooooo fun.

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments You're welcome, Lisa! Happy Reading!


Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments Yippee, glad to see there's someone else from Australia too! Hi everyone! :)

Hi Midu, miss you too! I should come visit you at The Nexus more often!

This is my 2nd round of Bingo, how about you guys?


message 22: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments Hi, Jeann! I've never played b/f, so I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of questions.


Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments No problem, it's pretty straightforward and gets easier as it goes! You'll definitely enjoy Bingo, it's a great way to meet people and cross books off the big to-read list :)


message 24: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments I have a question about the "male-lead" shelf. What if a book is tagged that way only once, but is tagged "male-pov" a lot more. Is once enough, or does it have to be a "top-shelf"?


message 25: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6371 comments It has to be on the shelf...that is the only requirement. Sooooo...if one person has put the book you want to read on that shelf, bless them, and happily read away!


message 26: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments Ah! Good to know, Judithe! Thank you.


message 27: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments I’m just throwing these out there. I'm open to anything.

Possible names for our team:

Five of Fifteen – or is that too confusing with both numbers?

15 Minutes of Fame

The age of a quinceañera, a Hispanic girl celebrating her fifteenth birthday. Thus, Spanish bingo callers might refer to the number 15 as la niña bonita (the beautiful girl). So, maybe La Niñas Bonita

Group 15 of the periodic table are sometimes known as the "Pnictogens".

Fiction’s Fifteen

Fifteenth Page

Factor Fifteen

Fabulous Fifteen

Favorable Fifteen

Flourishing Fifteen

Game of Fifteen – there is a game by this name. It is also known as:

Mystic Square – so Mystic Square 15, maybe?


message 28: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments So, for "young-adult-paranormal" I am going to read/listen to Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor. This one won an "Audie" award this year.

For my "free space" (yes, I checked; it is on SOS's bookshelf) it will be A Bad Day for Sorry, by Sophie Littlefield. I have already read it (when it first came out), but I've heard it is very well narrated and I wanted an excuse to buy it, LOL!

Hopefully, I'll get to both of these this week.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1) by Laini Taylor A Bad Day for Sorry (Bad Day, #1) by Sophie Littlefield

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments Since they wanted to know, I just now posted the following in the main discussion thread:
"Team #15's card & list are correct when compared to the Google Spreadsheet, Judithe & Steph!!"



message 30: by Juana "Darkness" (last edited Jun 16, 2012 09:35PM) (new)

Juana "Darkness" Duran | 172 comments Hey guys nice to meet all of you. My name is Juana. For Young-Adults Paranormal Romance I pick: The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, #3) by Kelley Armstrong .

For the name I think Favorable Fifteen.


message 31: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments Hi, Juana! I'm Lisa Kay. This is my first BSB. I haven't read that one. Looks good.


message 32: by Juana "Darkness" (new)

Juana "Darkness" Duran | 172 comments I've read almost the whole series and it's good, I just have to finish this one. This is my second time playing, its really fun, you'll enjoy it Lisa.


message 33: by Jeann (Happy Indulgence) (last edited Jun 17, 2012 12:50AM) (new)

Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments How about Ferocious Fifteen?

I'll have a look at the shelf later, anyone want tone teamcaptain? I'm happy to be :)


message 34: by Juana "Darkness" (new)

Juana "Darkness" Duran | 172 comments I don't think that I could be team captain, I'm hardly on and if I do get on the computer its too check e-mails and to up date my challenges that I'm in.


message 35: by Steph, Road Tripper!! (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28164 comments Jessica, I sent Amy a PM. I'm sure she'll be by soon, but if you don't hear from her this week, lemme know.


message 36: by Jeann (Happy Indulgence) (last edited Jun 17, 2012 12:47AM) (new)

Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments Awesome I'll be the captain if no one else has any objections hehe :)

My YA Paranormal read - The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2) by Richelle Mead


message 37: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments Hi, Jessica! Sorry, didn't see your post until just now. I see we posted at the exact same time, but still, I didn't go off line right away. Hmmm... Anywayz...

Flirtatious Fifteen

Ferocious Fifteen


or even Ferociously Flirtatious Fifteen if fine with me.


message 38: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments Jeann, whomever wants to be captain is fine by me, too.

I hope we hear from Amy. Does anyone know her?

I haven't read anything by Richelle Mead yet, as I just started reading YA within the last year; however, I have her on my radar. Trying to decide which series should be my first.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments I sent everyone "friend-invites" except Amy... as I'm not sure which Amy she is.

message 43: by ♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ (last edited Jun 17, 2012 04:58PM) (new)

♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments ok... Just reading all the posts to catch up.

I live outside Memphis, TN (in the country). People don't say their from Memphis, but I figure that pinpoints the area I'm in.

Grew up in CA (Orange County). I go there every summer for a month, but not this one because we are having a pool put in & one thing after another our 10 weeks turned into 3 months already with a month worth of work left. Since I am leaving (with a computer this time)during all of this, I am only staying a couple weeks to shop & restock my wine supply...

This weekend we went to Nashville, to shop. Memphis lacks stores, but my husbands business is here, so we are stuck... Hmmm. what else...

YA is tough... I don't like it. I have YA's living here, so I've read all the good stuff already & I absolutely HATE teenage angst. I read fast, so no worries! I am finishing up a book & have another I have to do. I found a book I lost, so I will restart it for my freespace. I forgot what it was about!

Freespace:

My Lord Vampire (Immortal Rogues, #1) by Alexandra Ivy


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments Oh... I have played this 4 times now & the connect 4 one once...


Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments OK I just sent everyone a friend request. Thanks for the introduction Amy, it's so interesting hearing stories from the US as we live so far away in Australia :) Sounds like you've had a busy time.

I adore YA but I think you have to wade through a lot of rubbish to get to the good stuff. There are some excellent reads that I can recommend like Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1) by Laini Taylor , The Giver (The Giver, #1) by Lois Lowry , Divergent (Divergent, #1) by Veronica Roth , and definitely The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins if you haven't read that yet. I haven't checked whether all of these are on the YA Paranormal shelf, however.

Lisa Kay wrote: "

Flirtatious Fifteen

Ferocious Fifteen

or even Ferociously Flirtatious Fifteen if fine with me."


Hmm I think I prefer Ferocious Fifteen but don't mind Flirtatious Fifteen, having both is a bit too much though. What is everyone's preference on the team name?


message 46: by ♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ (last edited Jun 17, 2012 05:15PM) (new)

♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments OK... Just saying... I go for Ferociously flirtatious. Drop the 15, because they are going to simplify us anyway & writing it down requesting a stamp everytime, for the captain takes a while.

If you see it, it makes more sense...

Team #15 ~ Fifteen Ferociously Flirtatious

or

Team #15 ~ Ferociously Flirtatious

Sooo, if we drop the name 15, we are still 15 ferociously flirtatious. You just don't have to write it. I think 2 names flow better & I like the other 2.

JUST MY OPINION & giving you something to think about. You do not have to swing my way. I'm just pointing that out.


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments sorry! had to edit that post 3 times!


message 48: by Jeann (Happy Indulgence) (last edited Jun 17, 2012 05:35PM) (new)

Jeann (Happy Indulgence)  (happyindulgence) | 1151 comments Great idea Amy, so we have:

Flirtatious Fifteen
Ferocious Fifteen
Ferociously Flirtatious

Anyone else have any other suggestions? Let's have a vote on our favourites! I don't mind 2 or 3 :)


message 49: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 1586 comments I'm on my Kindle Fire so I'll be brief. I like Amy's idea, the 3rd choice the best, but I am good with any of the three.


♡ Sassy ~ Amy ♡ | 494 comments There are also fae, fairies, uhh my mind went blank...
