What's a TBR Pick-It-For-Me Challenge?

Like the name implies, those who participate in this monthly challenge will have a book selected for them by a partner. Partners will be randomly paired up. You will choose a book for your partner from their to read list (TBR), and they will choose one for you.

Once you have picked the book, come back to this thread and post what book you have chose for your partner. Also send a message to the person with the name of the book you have selected for them. Then when you're done with your book, come back to this thread and post your opinion so we know you have completed the challenge.

For this challenge, you need to either HAVE YOUR PROFILE SET TO PUBLIC (preferable) or make the person you're paired with your friend. I strongly advise keeping your bookshelves updated, otherwise you might end up with a recommendation for something that you've already read.

Sign up period will remain open until October 28 and you'll have until November 1st to select a book for your partner.

***Please note***Everything will be done in this thread so check it often. Also, please be sure you really, really want to participate. Once I pair up people, it makes it difficult to re-pair when someone decides not to participate

Christine, I have three choices for you to choose from. Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1) by Katie McGarry Reflected in You (Crossfire, #2) by Sylvia Day Bone Deep by Bonnie Dee I have seen some really good reviews on all of these. I hope you like one of these choices.

Leigh | 11284 comments Mod
Maybe Lanaia will want to be part of our buddy read.


message 39: by Lanaia (new)

Lanaia (Marjetica) Thanks Sheri, I'm looking forward to reading this book! Leigh, I can join you, if you take me :)

Sheri, for your November book I choose The Help by Kathryn Stockett, since it's one of my favorites and it's been on your TBR shelf for a long time :) I hope you like it.

How did you like the movie? I enjoyed both.

I did it the same way. I watch the movie before reading the book. I still enjoyed the book more than the movie.


message 46: by Carrie (new)

Carrie  | 174 comments Hi Renee I have your picks.

Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning, Bitten (Women of the Otherworld, #1) by Kelley Armstrong or Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas

I hope you can pick something from these.

Happy reading!

I liked the movie. I don't normally watch movies before reading the book, but I was with my mom and sister and they wanted to watch it so...
