Reading a book is fun, but reading a book with someone makes it SO much more fun! So I decided to start a monthly buddy read for fans of Christian fiction and non-fiction.

Leave a post with the genres you like to read or which books you have that you want to read next month, and then those who want to read the same book(s) or who enjoy the same genres can ask to buddy with you.

Here's an example of how to post:

Hi! I enjoy reading lots of different genres, but my favorite is historical fiction. I am planning on reading A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman next month, but I am willing to read another book as well.


Once you know who you are buddying with, please leave a comment HERE with the names of the people buddying up (you can buddy up with more than one person) and the book(s) you will be reading.

Anne Mateer (annemateer) | 8 comments I love this idea! My reading for October will include The Girl in the Glass by Susan Meissner The Girl in the Glass A Novel by Susan Meissner and Band of Sisters by Cathy Gohlke Band of Sisters by Cathy Gohlke Anyone want to join me for one or the other (or both)?

L Megan, i love your idea!

I adore fantasy fiction and read it more than anything else. I have planned soon to begin reading 'The Da Vinci Code' (as i do enjoy all genres), and was wondering if anyone was either going to be reading this or if there was someone who enjoyed fantasy fiction? x

a). The Da Vinci Code (Robert Langdon, #2) by Dan Brown
or
b). fantasy genre


message 4: by Emily (new)

Emily Grace Hello! I enjoy reading Christian romantic fiction. I was planning on reading The Accidental Bride by Denise Hunter The Accidental Bride by Denise Hunter. But I'm open to read another romantic fiction.


message 5: by Janet (new)

Janet | 113 comments Hi, I love Christian fiction especially Amish fiction. I will be reading treasuring Emma and faithful to Laura in October.


message 6: by Dawn (new)

Dawn (baseballblondie) | 1180 comments I'm not entirely sure what I'll be reading in October.

I know that I will for sure be reading Twice Promised by Maggie Brendan & Promised to Love by Serena Miller. I'll also be reading Twice a Bride by Mona Hodgson.

And in the non-Christian/young adult fantasy genre - Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan

I'm fairly certain I'll read at least one book published by Bethany House, one from Thomas Nelson, and maybe one from Tyndale (haven't seen my review selections yet).

Elizabeth-

I have Trinity I'd like to read, but I don't know when I'll be able to get to it and don't want to hold you back... it probably won't be until mid-to-late October.

I'll doubt I'll get to it before then either tbh. I've got several books I'm halfway through that I need to finish up first. I'd be happy to wait till the end of October!


message 12: by Aerykah (new)

Aerykah | 1404 comments I've never done this before, but I'm willing to give it a shot... ;)
I'll read just about any genre, though historic romance is probably my favorite.

My reading list changes as I, my sis-in-law, & my library get new books (frequently), so I don't have a set reading list; but I do have a couple books that I would like to get to soon ---

Touching the Clouds (Alaskan Skies #1) by Bonnie Leon Touching the Clouds by Bonnie Leon
Code Blue (Prescription for Trouble, #1) by Richard L. Mabry Code Blue by Richard L. Mabry

I'm currently reading The Shiloh Legacy by Bodie Thoene. I'm on book 2, so I'll be finishing it & reading book 3 in Oct. if anyone's interested in reading those...
