Buddy Read

March Buddy Read Discussion
Duration: 01 March 2016 - 31 March 2016



Instructions & Info:

Rules:


Use this thread to find your buddy and determine your book! You can always start by posting books, authors or genres you are interested in. When you decide who your buddy will be and what book(s) you're going to read head on over to the FINAL SIGN UP thread (see link at bottom) and tell me your book and buddy there (there will be instructions to follow).


1. If you want to participate post your name and let people know what genre(s) you are interested in reading and/or any books that you're interested in reading.

2. If you already know who you’d like to read with, go to the Final Sign Up thread and post your information for me!

3. Groups of 3 or more are also fine, the more the merrier.

4.I will create Buddy Discussion Threads for each Buddy group and you will be able to start reading and discussing.

5. There are no rules on what, how much or how often to discuss or how best to pace your reading - whatever works best for each individual group.

5.The challenge will span a month.

6.You CAN sign up for more than one Buddy Read...in fact it's encouraged!

ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK!

Once you have a buddy, go to the March Sign Up Thread and post your book and your buddy.

I hope you enjoy Poison Study, Krissy! I've read it a few times, and it's not bad. I need to finish the rest of the series for review sometime!

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments Trea, I have to read it for a challenge and I thought it sounded really good and something I'd enjoy so I'm looking forward to it :)

Hi, Dami! It would be great if you could list some books you're looking to read in the next month or so, that way people can see if anything you're wanting to read interests them. Just listing a genre you enjoy reading doesn't always work for trying to find a partner to read books with!

VampAmber | 349 comments I kinda wanna join a buddy read next month, but I failed so miserably last time... If I make no promises of how much or how well I participate, can I maybe join your buddy read for John Dies at the End, Krissy and Maya? I read it about a year ago and freaking loved it, and would love to go for a round two. I kinda miss Molly... ^_^

message 25: by Nichole (new)

The Cairo Diary by Maxime Chattam The Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin Rochester Knockings A Novel of the Fox Sisters by Hubert Haddad The Imposter Bride A Novel by Nancy Richler

Wanna get at least one or two of those read and back to the library soon.

VampAmber | 349 comments Krissy wrote: "VampAmber, I'll add you and you can join as much or as little as you'd like :)"

Schweet! I'll go request it from the library right now. And if you guys like it, maybe in April we could do the sequel, This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It. (rereading books when I have so many unread ones, I should be ashamed. I'm not, but I should be)


message 31: by Krissy (new)

Krissy (krissystewart) | 3110 comments Totally doable :)


message 32: by Maya (new)

Maya (ferafaces) | 464 comments I've totally got that, so I'm okay with reading it! :)

The library in my city is small and they don't have many authors.

Bummer, Gemma! For me, I don't have much interest in the books you're selected because I read more romance than anything else, and I read the Dragonlance novel you have listed years ago, before joining Goodreads, and didn't care for it.

However, I do occasionally get the wild hair up my butt and want to read World of Warcraft books, so maybe we can get together for that?

March is looking somewhat packed for me right now, so it might be April before I can get to it. Want me to check back with you then on it?


message 41: by Gemma (new)

Gemma Fasheun (gemmafash) | 35 comments Yeah it's okay with me. I'll add it to currently reading shelf so I won't forget.

Sounds good! There's a small group of us doing a buddy read for the Sorcerer's Stone this month, if you want to join on the bandwagon at the end, that's totally cool :) I'll put you in for the final read for Chamber of Secrets.


message 43: by Dani (new)

Dani (sayv) Sadly I won't have my first 2 volumes until March, so I can't join in on the first one right now. My cousin borrowed them but I'll be getting them back once the semester starts at university so I can meet her to give them back... Which is in March.
