1. The Wicked Cometh
2. Gingerbread
3. Harry Potter: A Pop-up Guide to Hogwarts
4. Ghost Wall
5. A Ladder to the Sky
6. Where the Crawdads Sing

Jee_HookedOnBookz Congratulations and well done! 3mo

Nessavamusic @Cinfhen I think Sweet Disorder was my favorite of the bunch, it was a very unique romance 5mo
Cinfhen I finished my 6 too!! I think #FairytaleRetelling was my least favorite category and I think #IrishAuthor or #Podcast were my favorite prompts (edited) 5mo
Nessavamusic @Cinfhen I liked the #femaledetective and #podcast prompts, they took me out of my normal genres 5mo

Have you wanted to know just a little more about what the readers of #Booked2018 did? I combed through our spreadsheet and found some interesting facts.

We got excited at the beginning, but lots of people didn‘t finish. So if you struggled, you‘re not alone.

Most people used the challenge as we intend it—for fun and to connect with other readers.

p.s. It‘s not too late to join in 2019! Link in comments.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Details for 2019 can be found in the sign-up link here: https://goo.gl/forms/5jbH9jk5TaNPTvKt2 5mo
Cathythoughts 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 5mo

RachelO Yay! Love this. Thanks to all of you for all of your work on the challenge🌻 5mo
Pamwurtzler Thanks! Those are interesting stats. I can‘t remember if I officially signed up for 2019 or not so I‘m going to do it just to make sure! 5mo
llwheeler Fun stats! Thanks for sharing, and for all your work hosting! 5mo
gradcat This is fantastic...will you be keeping up with #Booked2019 like this? 😊 5mo
gradcat @IamIamIam I‘m guessing fiction involving the climate? 🤔 5mo
IamIamIam @gradcat AHA, that sounds like a viable option! Good thinking! 5mo
mrp27 This is great! Thanks for the stats, so interesting. 5mo
saresmoore Cool stats! 5mo
Cinfhen Thanks so much for sharing these stats 🙌🏻😀I‘m happy to report that as of Jan 14 2019, I‘ve already entered 156 names for the quarterly drawing!!!! Looks like our Littens are off to a strong start!!! (edited) 5mo
AnneCecilie Thanks for sharing the stats. 5mo
Cinfhen The literary movement “Cli-Fi” (modeled after the term “sci-fi“) is any fictional work written about the effects of climate change and global warming. @IamIamIam if you google cli-fi it takes you to several book lists 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @IamIamIam @gradcat That‘s exactly right. Fiction involving climate change. Search the #clifi hashtag for some suggestions! 5mo
AmyG Oh wow. I am honored to be one of the 20 to complete this. Thank you to the hosts...I had a blast! 5mo
IamIamIam @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen Thanks so much for the info and for hosting!!! I'm excited to go through #mountTBR and make a plan for the challenge!!! Looking forward to it! 😘🤗🤟 5mo
LibrarianRyan Awesome. Thank you. Very interesting. 5mo
squirrelbrain Really interesting - thanks for letting us all know! 5mo
Cinfhen Glad you‘re joining us @IamIamIam I‘m also trying to use only books I own or I can borrow 🤞🏼🤞🏼 (edited) 5mo

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Pamwurtzler You‘re welcome. Glad you‘re in for 2019! 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @llwheeler You‘re welcome! I love looking for info like this. 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @gradcat I‘m sure that by the end of the year I will have looked for some fun stats. Not sure how much I‘ll do each quarter, though. 5mo
BarbaraBB Love the stats and I must admit I‘m a little proud to be one of the 20 who completed the challenge ☺️😉😘 5mo
Kalalalatja I‘m super proud to be one of the 20 who finished! Here‘s to doing the same in 2019 🙌 5mo
4thhouseontheleft Thanks for calculating these! @gradcat the spreadsheet we keep makes it easier to compile these stats, so we do plan on doing it in 2019 too! Maybe on a quarterly basis this year? @BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja @AmyG You deserve a 👏👏👏 for being in the group to complete all the prompts! 5mo
AmyG Thanks @4thhouseontheleft. I was determinded to do this. I usually drop out of challenges. (edited) 5mo
Butterfinger When it says "tag each of us," who are all involved?My next library haul is next week for winter's 6 prompts so I want to make sure I know what I'm doing because I usually don't. My next question, have I signed up for it already? 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Butterfinger I double checked—you‘re on the list! When you review a book you read for the prompt tag me, @Cinfhen and @4thhouseontheleft so we can track you for the giveaways. And because we like to high five ya! 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @AmyG @BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja We are so so excited that you guys finished every prompt. It‘s a big deal for everyone who finishes a challenge. 🥰 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @LibrarianRyan @squirrelbrain @BarbaraBB I‘m glad you guys appreciate these. I truly wasn‘t sure how many people would be interested! 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @mrp27 @saresmoore @AnneCecilie Thanks for letting me know you like stats the way I do! 🥰 5mo
Bookzombie Even though I was down to the wire finishing last year, I‘m so happy I completed #Booked2018 . I loved many of the prompts and I‘m excited about this year‘s too. (edited) 5mo
AmyG @BarbaraTheBibliophage Thank you. It felt good. 5mo
CouronneDhiver Interesting! 5mo
BarbaraBB @IamIamIam For #clifi I can sooo recommend this book. It is a chunksters, I know, but you‘ll speed through: it reads like a mystery novel! 5mo
erzascarletbookgasm Thanks for the stats! I only took up two seasons and I‘m glad I completed them. This year I think I‘m ready for all the seasons. 5mo
IamIamIam @BarbaraBB Thanks so much for the recommendation! It looks great! 5mo
sprainedbrain This is cool! 5mo

Decided to join #Booked2019! Hopefully I‘ll do better this time than I did with #Booked2018, lol. I got a bit overwhelmed with my reading challenges. I‘m feeling pretty confident, but I guess we‘ll see how it goes this time around. I already have ideas of what I‘ll read for some of these prompts📚🤓🎉

LibLib #8 under spring, what is Cli-Fi? 5mo

LibLib @BarbaraTheBibliophage thank you! The definitely answers my question 😊 5mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @LibLib My pleasure! Don‘t forget we have a Goodreads group for this challenge. It‘s also a good place to gather ideas for the various prompts. 5mo

My summer choices - and they are all off my groaning TBR too! #HappyDays

JamieArc For Book to Movie I see Loving Frank. Does this mean Loving Frank has been made into a film??? 6mo
JennyM @JamieArc apparently...I just watched the trailer of it from 2016 while working out prompts. But I don‘t think it made it to mainstream screening 6mo
Cinfhen I love that you are starting with summer 😛and I‘m digging your choices xx thanks for sharing and extra points that these are all off your TBR🙌🏻💕 6mo

This is at least the fourth time...and as of the writing of this, still no email confirmation. The universe has spoken. 😢 Maybe I should try a different browser online...even though this has never been an issue before. 🤷‍♀️

Cinfhen Yes!!!! That‘s what you need !!!!! It says your response has been recorded!!! I think u should be good to go🤞🏼🤞🏼 6mo
VeganCleopatra @Cinfhen it has said this every time 😞 6mo
Cinfhen There is no email confirmation as far as I know ...you should be registered 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️ 6mo

VeganCleopatra @Cinfhen usually with Google forms there is a confirmation email. 🤔 But even if there isn't, @4thhouseontheleft says I'm not on record the other three times either and I've always gotten this response. 🤦‍♀️ 6mo
4thhouseontheleft I‘m checking responses on my phone, let me check on the computer later today. I‘m so sorry you‘re having these problems, I have no idea why. @Cinfhen Yes, I have the form set that people should receive a copy of it after they submit it. 6mo
Cinfhen Oh, weird!!! I didn‘t get one either hahaha @4thhouseontheleft 6mo
Cinfhen Your‘e in good company @VeganCleopatra ❣️ 6mo
4thhouseontheleft @VeganCleopatra have you tried doing it on a computer? It‘s really not a huge deal, though, we can just add you to the spreadsheet of participants, and I can email you a copy of the form if you want to keep it for reference. 6mo
VeganCleopatra @Cinfhen 😆 @4thhouseontheleft I have tried it on the computer. The only thing left is to try another browser, though I've tried two. Haha I would appreciate being added, I can try again as well I guess. 6mo
VeganCleopatra @4thhouseontheleft Any chance I turned up? Can you just add me if I haven't? Thanks. 6mo
4thhouseontheleft @VeganCleopatra I have added you! 6mo
VeganCleopatra @4thhouseontheleft Thank you! I guess registering again today didn't work either? 😆 6mo
4thhouseontheleft @VeganCleopatra I haven‘t checked today. I‘ll let you know if it did. 😃 6mo
VeganCleopatra @4thhouseontheleft Probably didn't 😆 6mo

Just signed up.

I don‘t think I‘ll do all 6 every season, but maybe 2 or 3, and I‘m also too much of a mood reader to plan ahead

But this looks like fun, so here goes


BarbaraTheBibliophage Yay!! So glad you‘re joining us for whatever feels like fun! 6mo
Lynnsoprano That‘s kind of how I read, too. I never thought to call it being s mood reader, but it‘s a perfect description. 6mo

Cinfhen I just ran a test and I got the message confirmation @VeganCleopatra 😁 6mo
VeganCleopatra @Cinfhen I think the universe is trying to keep me from doing this challenge. 🤨 6mo
Cinfhen Hahaha!! I was having a deja vu with you @VeganCleopatra 😂😂 I‘ll ask Alisia to check but don‘t worry I have your back! 6mo
VeganCleopatra @Cinfhen I know! It's making me look incompetent! Haha Would it screw anything up if I just put my info in yet again and see if the Google gods approve of me this time? 6mo
Cinfhen Go for it @VeganCleopatra I‘ll let the others know 🙏🏻🤞🏼good luck 💚 6mo
VeganCleopatra @Cinfhen Well I did it again, even did it on an actual computer in case that helped and still no Google confirmation. The Google gods have apparently spoken. 6mo
Cinfhen I don‘t know what to say 😂😂😂😂 @VeganCleopatra care to weigh in @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft look at the above thread 👆🏽👆🏽👆🏽 6mo
4thhouseontheleft @VeganCleopatra There have been a few random people that haven‘t received the Google confirmation. I have no clue why, Google‘s ways are a mystery to me sometimes! 😂🧐 I‘ll check to make sure we received it on our end. 6mo
VeganCleopatra @4thhouseontheleft thanks! Do you know if you most people who don't receive confirmation are actually entered or not? 6mo
cassiopia Do audio books count, or no? 6mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!! 100% @cassiopia 💚🎉😊 6mo
VeganCleopatra @4thhouseontheleft Any update on this? 6mo
4thhouseontheleft @VeganCleopatra Sorry! No, I don‘t see your response in the google form. That‘s so weird. 6mo
VeganCleopatra @4thhouseontheleft jeez I've done it at least three times! Ok, I'll try it again I guess. This is the only time I've had issues with Google forms. 🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️ if Google keeps rejecting me can I still participate in the challenges and giveaways? 6mo
GlassAsDiamonds @VeganCleopatra & @4thhouseontheleft - I had the same problem actually. Had signed up already but didn‘t think about the confirmation... that I didn‘t actually receive. Have tried again but did you ever manage to sign up? 5mo
VeganCleopatra @GlassAsDiamonds Hopefully @4thhouseontheleft can check for you. It turned out after everything that it actually did go through for me every time but I never got a single confirmation! 5mo
GlassAsDiamonds @VeganCleopatra 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ I‘m not sure what I want now... two sign ups, no confirmation or one fully successful sign up!! 😂😂😂🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😂😂 5mo
VeganCleopatra @GlassAsDiamonds haha well I'm signed up despite it all so I guess it doesn't matter as long as it goes through? It would have been nice to have a confirmation though! (edited) 5mo
LiterRohde I‘ve been reading and planned for the winter 6 prompts. However, as I knew would happen, since I usually read from recommendations and as my library holds come through, I have a few books that apply to other seasons. Is it any 6 book prompts that apply to each quarter and if I read more, do they apply to another quarter? Like an Australian reading from Summer if here it is Winter, do they qualify for the drawings? I‘m complicating things, yes? 😜 (edited) 5mo
Cinfhen You can read any prompt from any season whenever u like @LiterRohde It only counts once in terms of the drawing so it‘s possible you could have 9 chances in quarter one and only 4 in quarter 2. Read whatever you like ~ just remember to tag us so we can enter you in the quarterly drawing!! I get how it can be confusing. We just want u to have fun!! It‘s possible u may not complete all the winter prompts in winter & that‘s fine too. (edited) 5mo

I did it, I‘ve finished #Booked2018 and really enjoyed it! These are the books I read during the four seasons! Now I can properly start planning #Booked2019! Thanks for organizing, @Cinfhen , @BarbaraTheBibliophage and @4thhouseontheleft 💜❤️💙

Cinfhen Amazing!!!!! Love that you have all 24 books to display🙌🏻💕🥰 6mo
Cinfhen Which was your favorite? 6mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen I really don‘t know. So many good ones! I loved the Japanese thrillers and So Much Blue, but also The Art of Fielding and Eleanor... can‘t decide 😉😀 6mo

Kalalalatja Well done, and I love the idea of having your challenge books together 👌 6mo
LauraBeth Way to go! 🙌🙌 6mo
erzascarletbookgasm Wohoo! 👏👍 I have one more to go! 6mo
batsy Yay! Well done, you. I confessed to being a challenge failure in an earlier post, but I'm so tempted to join at least one quarter of #booked2019 after seeing others choose their awesome books 😂 6mo
BarbaraBB @batsy I like the challenges, I fail because I am joining too much of them 😉. Good to see you in #Booked2019, the planning is the best! 6mo
Tove_Reads Spying on you because of the swap! My TBR is update on Goodreads, because I‘ve marked the books I own there. 6mo
BarbaraBB @Tove_Reads My TBR is up to date on Litsy, however you are not my swap, I received someone else‘s name 😉😘 6mo
Tove_Reads @BarbaraBB Ok, so it‘s one of those swaps, didn‘t know. Good to know! Now I spoiled the surprise 🤣 6mo
BarbaraBB @Tove_Reads I am happy to be your swap, you have such good taste in books 😀💕 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Hi Barbara - I‘d like to give you proper credit, but I can‘t read all the titles even on my IPad. And I‘m not sure which goes for which prompt. Rather than me doing the time-consuming research, would you please comment below and make all the connections for me. Thanks ever so much! ♥️ 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Never mind. Apologies. I just need to know what your pick was for New in 2018, please. 6mo
BarbaraBB @BarbaraTheBibliophage Hi! I think I tagged them all at the moment that I read them, let me know if you miss any? New in 2018 was The Italian Teacher and thereafter I read Carry me Down for Invisible Illness, which was the last one! Let me know if I can be of help! 😘 6mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Thanks!! Somehow I missed the Rachman even with the tag. All set! Congrats on finishing the challenge! 6mo

I did this challenge last year and had so much fun. Each season you read 6 books, one for each prompt. The best part is choosing the books for the prompts. Come join. Read the original organizers posts on how to participate.

TheKidUpstairs What is Cli-Fi? 7mo
4thhouseontheleft @TheKidUpstairs Climate fiction that deals with climate change and/or global warming. Some examples are The Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler, Atwood‘s Maddadam Trilogy, Jeff Vandermeer‘s Southern Reach Trilogy, Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver, or The Road by Zcormsc McCarthy. 7mo

BarbaraTheBibliophage @LauraBeth I‘m thinking of doing the Reading Woman challenge also! 7mo
4thhouseontheleft @Bookzombie excellent disclaimer. 😂 @BarbaraTheBibliophage I want to do that one too, and am on the fence of knocking off #pop19 for the reading women challenge 7mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft I over committed to challenges this year and may not finish #pop18. It wasn‘t as big a success for me as others have been in the past. Still evaluating—same as you! 7mo
4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m on track to finish #pop18 soon, but I‘m not as inspired by the #pop19 prompts. Too many feel like a repeat. We‘ll see. I love the Reading Women 2019 prompts! 7mo
Balibee146 @TheKidUpstairs liz Jensen has written some good Cli-Fi too like The Rapture 7mo

So I've been very neglectful in posting my books for #booked2018 and since it's the last day of this quarter I'm doing one post instead of filling up litsy.
So for:
Childhood Favorite - A Wrinkle in Time
Book about Environment/Set Outside - News of the World
Friendship - The Wednesday Sisters
Flowers or Sword in Cover - The Presidents Lady

Hope it's okay to do it this way! 😀
@Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

Remember, there is just one more day to post your reading for the 2nd season giveaway of #Booked2018!! You can read from any quarter, but a prompt can only be counted once.

👧🏻Childhood favorite: The Witch of Blackbird Pond
🚂 Steampunk: Timekeeper
⛅️Set Outdoors/Environment: Walden
🚣‍♀️ Refugee MC: Refugee
👭Friendship: Sister of My Heart
🌸Sword or Flower on Cover: Wild Beauty

Reggie Sister of my Heart is one of my favorite books of all time. It even has a Star Warsian twist. There is a sequel to the book. Sister of the Vine. 12mo

Apologies to all the #Booked2018 folks, I am really behind on tracking the Season 2 posts and prompts! It has my full attention this afternoon, so I‘m hoping to be able to catch up.

Eating my favorite item off of the local juice bars Spring Menu, the carrot cake bowl. It is frozen carrot, frozen banana, almond milk, and vanilla topped with GF granola, cinnamon and chopped dates. Tastes like a healthy, dairy free ice cream sundae. 😃 🥕 🍌 🍨

Cinfhen Yum!!!! That looks scrumptious and no need for apologies ~ you haven‘t missed too many...I could send u a list (edited) 1y
