F is for friends, who do stuff together, U is for you and me. N is for - Yeah who cares. Spongebob has taught me that I can remember dumb little songs, but not what I was supposed to do for homework....

We pick, we pick, we pick and choose.
So here is another little poem for you.
To see what my brain is up to.

Wait and see
What it could be
A little monthly challenge for you and me.

Alright! March is around the corner and here is the March challenge! I am opening it early due to the "rules" if you may...


drum roll please






The You and Me challenge. If you looked at my little poem, list was spelled out in italics. I made it vague, I know. March's challenge will be a challenge that you somewhat share with a friend. For this challenge you are going off a friends list, and their list only. You can try to find one that you wanted to read but I highly HIGHLY suggest you sift through their shelves and find a book that you didn't know about, or you might of not read. This gives you the opportunity to read a few books that spark your interest through a friend. You can reach out to whoever it was that you "borrowed" from, or keep it mutually just a picking pot.

You can look through their read, to be read and currently reading shelves. You can use my shelves, and if you do- message me! Maybe if its a mutual read, we can do it together, or if it is a book I have already read- lets discuss it!


There are no strict rules, but here are the minimal rulings:

- Must be from a person from the C&B group.
- Must post who's list you chose from & if it was a tbr, read or currently reading list.
- And of course, must post the book(s)!

Duration: March 1st to April 2nd (just kidding its the 1st- April Fools! )

Enjoy!

message 31: by Phrynne (new)

Phrynne I have chosen my book from Sharon's list of books she has read. She has actually reminded me of a book I have been meaning to read for a long time The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins.
Thanks Sharon:)


✿ ♥  Heather ♥ ✿ (frangiegal) | 7 comments Well, thank you to Sharon for the use of your Read list. I sorted by ratings to make sure I got a 5 star.

I'm going to read Still Alice. It has been recommended by my niece, it's even sitting on my bedside table unread, and because Sharon HIGHLY recommends it in her review.

I have a Buddy Read on March 1st so I will read Still Alice after that.

Alright Fiona! I stalked your to read and I decided on Clockwork Orange. I've seen the movie about a hundred times before. Never gets old, how ever disturbing that may sound!

I attempted to read it in high school (haha! I know right when I was 15...) and I still have it on the shelf. So I am picking up the one again for the month of March. If I get through it, I will go ahead and pick my next victim, er I mean friend, to stalk and get another good recommendation!
