chicken Carolina Girl Virginia Kantra 8/1/16 p 114 She stuffed the lemons and rosemary into the chicken cavities and trussed the legs lightly together.

downcast Unrequited Melody Grace 8/5/16 p 10 “So soon? Oh, what a shame!” Camille looks downcast. “Never mind, I’ll call your mother and set up that girls’ day, just the three of us.”

early Hollywood Lights Lana Xavier 8/1/16 p. 62 “See you bright and early on Monday!”

For our over-achievers who just need some extra words because the above weren't enough...

Unlike with the 10 words above - you must find the EXACT word to claim these bonus words, and I try to make them hard.


captain Unforgettable Melody Grace 8/6/16 p 32 He’s a great captain.

futuristic Starlight on Willow Lake Susan Wiggs 8/17/16 p 101 The desk area resembled a setting for a futuristic movie, with a big screen monitor, a microphone for voice commands and some switches that could be activated by nudging them with the wheelchair.


privileged Marrying Daisy Bellamy Susan Wiggs 8/2/16 p. 26 ... the product of a privileged but unhappy family and a tony prep school. 

To prove that you have found the word, please quote the page, percentage or LOC (Kindle) and include the sentence in which it appears.

Audiobooks are allowed so long as you can quote the page/%/LOC and the sentence. (Eg Using whispersync or finding that sentence in some other way.)

You must find the actual word or the word's root word must be at the core with the meaning essentially remaining the same ~ just turned into a noun, adjective, adverb etc. No prefixes or hyphenated extensions. An extension is allowed where it is often the accepted spelling eg goodbye or good-bye.

Where a word has more than one meaning, either meaning may be used. Eg coast (beachfront) or coast (moving without effort) etc

Please post all entries, updates, final posts and questions in this thread.
