Fran | 11006 comments This is the 'Let's Pair Up!' group recommendation thread.

After you make your recommendation for the week to your partner, you are welcome (and encouraged!) to post the rec(s) here.

If any participant chooses not to read their partner's rec, they are welcome to choose a rec from their group thread or from here.

This thread will generate recommendations from all of the groups, and will hopefully give you lots to choose from.

Remember, choosing a book that someone else recommended is not mandatory......you are allowed to find a book on your own, it just needs to fit the category rolled. If you really can't find anything on any rec list or on your own that you are interested in that fits the category, you can choose any book from your partner's 'read' shelf.

The 'Series Rule' applies to this challenge. If you are recommended something and it is not where you are in the series, you can read the correct book in the series for you. The same applies if you are choosing a book from your partner's shelf or your group thread or this general recommendations thread. You can always read the book in the series that fits where you are in the series.

Fran | 11006 comments For Example-

Fran- recommended Big Rock - category 1



No need to mention what week it is, etc. Just a quick line as to category number and book rec.
Participants can choose any from the list at any time, corresponding to their roll.

MountainKat | 19730 comments Week 2 picks for Sunshine - Geek, Nerd, Opposites Attract Romance.

Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye - Definitely opposites attract, but with an accountant you get the geek too! LOVED this one! Short, but oh so good!

My Roommate's a Jock? Well, Crap! by Wade Kelly - Very much a geeky nerd, but again opposites attracting.

Taxes and TARDIS by N.R. Walker - I tried to find different books than have been previously recommended, but had to include this one anyway!

A few other options - again more opposites, those seemed to catch my attention more!
Extreme Exposure by Pamela Clare - Love everything she writes! The beginning of her RS I-Team series.
Sway by Lauren Dane - Recently read this and enjoyed it.
Lumberjack in Love by Penny Watson - Cute story, I liked it!
