ELAF Photo Challenge - Day 30


Day 30 - Team spirit.


Sigh.  This is the last day of the photo challenge.  I have enjoyed it SO much!  And I'm sad it's over.  BUT the group read is still happening so ONWARDS!

ELAF Photo Challenge - Day 27

Day 27 - Favourite city mentioned in the series

Now, I don't have one seeing as I've never been to any of the places mentioned in the books. But if I could choose one to visit, it'd be Dallas cause then I'd be close enough to visit Lori :)

ELAF Group Read & Photo Challenge Day 21

*SPOILERS*

I've made it to the third badge! I'm on a little bit of a holiday for the next three days, an extra long weekend I gave myself, so hopefully, I will make some real progress now.




This 'Pow' badge comes at a pretty upsetting time in the first book. Nate has gotten himself into a little bit of trouble by losing himself to passion. Again. That boy...

Many of the readers are very anti Nate's girlfriend in this stage of the book. I don't really think Samantha deserves quite that much derision. I see her as highly naive but not really manipulative.

Anywhoodle, onwards!

 
Day 21 - Most memorable symbol in the series. 

There are so many memorable symbols, but for me, the most memorable one is a phrase.


I can make a phrase a symbol if I want

ELAF Photo Challenge - Day 17

Day 17 - Your favourite scene of Nate's.


I love this, because this is where Nate took a good hard look at himself and how he was treating Emi,
and didn't like what he saw. This is where Nate became the man he was meant to be.

The original artist of the piece used as the background is Richard Cornwell.

ELAF Group Read & Photo Challenge Day 16

I am so far behind in the group read it's pathetic.  But I made some progress last night and am halfway through chapter 3.  I even earned the second badge without realising it!

The red shirt. He's broken up with someone. Uh oh...


Day 16 - The worst part of Lost and Found

This was so easy.  I mean there are a lot of frustrating or sad or angry making parts in the book.  But this was, without a doubt, the worst part of the book.  And not only because it was the end.


*sob*

ELAF Group Read & Photo Challenge Day 7

Today, as part of the group read, I shall start reading the first book in the Emi Lost and Found series; Lost and Found. I am looking forward to visiting with my old friends again.


The theme for today's photo challenge is 'Your favourite book in the series'. This is an almost impossible choice, but I had to choose the second book in the series, Time Stands Still. This is the first book in so many years that has made me cry. I don't cry easily (except for a brief period in my teen years, when I seemed to cry at everything) and Time Stands Still is about the third book I have ever cried in in all my life, and because of that fact, I chose this book.


Get your tissues

ELAF Group Read Day 1 & Photo Challenge Day 6

*possible SPOILERS on this and all related posts*

Today the group re-read of the Emi Lost and Found Series starts, tying up nicely with the ELAF Photo Challenge.

The re-read begins with the prequel, Not Today, But Someday.  It seems that the fans of this series are split between whether to read the prequel after the series, or before. I myself am glad that I read it after. I just really enjoyed going back in time and visiting with these guys after I knew how their story ended. The prequel takes us through how Emi Hennigan and Nate Wilson first met, and how they became best friends.

I am currently at 60% on my Kindle App in Not Today, But Someday and thoroughly enjoying myself.  And I'm four chapters away from achieving my first button! Go Me!  It's been such a treat getting into this story again. For those interested, Nate has just got home from school and is getting ready to paint, with some Nine Inch Nails in the background :) 

Starting the re-read today gave me some great ideas for today's photo challenge too!

Day 6 - Emi as a teenager

ELAF Photo Challenge - Day 1

The author of one of my favourite series, Emi Lost and Found, and a very good friend of mine, has started this fun photo challenge for the month of September, as well as a read-a-long.  As my blog has been pretty quiet lately, I thought it would be awesome to post about this.

So let's just jump right in!

Day 1: Your favourite lead character

Emi Hennigan
