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 from your TBR list.

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 July 28 and you'll have until August 1 when someone decides not to participate.

Oooh, thanks Leigh. :D
It's been so long for those series though. I feel like I would need to reread so much.
Maybe that's the fun part though?

Sarah | 82 comments Hey Tammy,

I hope you're having a good weekend ☺ Thank you for the great book picks! I've been trying to read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children for a while, but kept getting side-tracked; so I'm really glad you chose it. Although, I'm going to try to read all three before the EOM.

The PIFM books I've selected for you this month are:
Cruel Beauty (I've read it, so if you choose it, please let me know what you think)
The Siren and
Graveminder

I hope you enjoy!
