Hello everyone! description

For this Christmas, we arranged a Pick-For-Me challenge.
You can either give a link to your bookshelf to select three books from OR you can simply state your preferred genre(s)/trope(s) and expect three surprise choices by December 25th (Who doesn’t love surprises, right?) ;)

It’s all about fun so you don’t have to worry about any time limit.

Sign up below and check in before Christmas to find out what will be on your Christmas reading list.
Last date for sign-up is 18th December.

Maureen (ryrou) | 3 comments Ohhh, I love this. I'd like some surprises please :D
My preferred genre is contemporary romance.

Vivi | 53 comments This sounds good! Count me in! I love suprises (who doesn't?!) :)

the genres I really like are: young adult, a bit of distopian, fiction/paranormal and most of all contemporary romance.

For me a story/book has to have LOVE in it.

But I don't really like historic romance or classics (most of it, anyway).

I love books that make me think and feel. I also love original plots and out of the ordinary characters.

Don't like stupid characters (i've encountred mostly girls) that "think" they are in "love" with more than one person... and don´t get me wrong, one thing is being confused, other is saying they love both at the same time... it just get's on my nerves and ruins the love story for me (one example is That Boy)

So... sorry if I sound hard to please... anything with a good love story and characters will probably do.

here's de link to some of my favorite books (if it helps): https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

I'll look forwad to the 3 christmas surprise choices. Can´t wait ... :)

This is my list, some of them are library books that I must read ASAP, so this is going to be fun having someone pick for me. These are all historical romances and one western historical romance. I also love thrillers and horror and crime but I did not put any on this list since this is a romance group! I wonder if I have enough here in the list?

Welcome, Angela! Well, you have until 18th December to add more books to your shelf in case they're not enough :)

Lucy (mesdupmoi) | 106 comments Hey, sign me up please!
Please choose books from this list; https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...
But, please, choose a book that is first in a series or a stand-a-lone. There is nothing worse than reading a book that's halfway through a series! (Unless of course I am halfway through the series - Dark Tower is an example!) Thank you all, and Merry Christmas!!
