This month's word search is inspired by our July Group Read: Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Important Rule: You CANNOT use this book when looking for the words. That would be just too easy.

Below is the list of words to find. They can only be found within the text of the book - no covers, titles or authors, please. For each word you find, provide the book title, page or location, and the sentence containing the word. You can use one book to find all the words, or as many as you like. 

Optional Words: This month I have included 5 optional words that are a little harder than usual. You can choose to look for them or leave them off your list...it's up to you. 

***And if you don't find all the words this month, you are welcome to carry them over to next month's word search challenge.*** 

Challenge Rules:
Books should be at least 125 pages. All formats are acceptable. Re-reads are fine - just be sure to re-read the entire book. When updating your challenge with books you've read, please include a link to the book title, include the author's name, and the date you finished reading the book. 

Have fun!
