Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments Signs You’ve Found Your New Book Friend:
Duration August 1, 2016 - August 31, 2016


Using a list I found on Buzzfeed, I have created a challenge that will help you connect with new friends in the 2016 Reading Challenge Group based on the books you read in each category! The plan is to see who will be compatible, or even read the same books to meet each challenge.
*Beware* Friend requests should be a side effect of participating in this challenge!

1. Good friends speak a special dialect that is only understood between themselves...so do book lovers! We all have that special genre that creates that special speech pattern that only other lovers of that genre can understand. Choose a book from your favorite genre and see who else in the group loves that genre too.

2. Good friends can call each other at anytime of the day or the night...just the same way a good book is. Re-read one of your favorite books that is always on your shelf ready to read and see who loves the same book.

3. Good friends love all your statuses and will give you the highest approval ratings...just the as we do with our favorite books. Find a book that is highly rated by other members of the group (See our Recommended by 2016 Reading Challengers Listopia).

4. Good friends share the same guilty pleasures...just like there are some books you can't help reading. Find a book you are reading just for the fun of it, and not because it is a great literary masterpiece, and see who shares your guilty pleasure.

5. Good friends will know each other’s wardrobes libraries inside and out...just like they will know each other's libraries. To find a book for this task, you must ask someone from this group to recommend a book to you that they own.

6. Good friends are also friends with all the other people close in your life...just the same way we do when we love a book, we read everything written by the same author. Read a book written by a favorite author and see who else loves that same author.

7. Good friends can discuss any topic freely including money, sex, religion, and family...just the same way a book can be written on any subject. Read a non-fiction on any subject that interests you and see who also shares your same interest.

8. Finally, good friends share wonderful memories...just like when we read a truly wonderful book. Read any book you have been longing to read and recommend it to another member of the group so that you can create a lasting memory together.

Hi Heather,
James Patterson is quite good at writing police vs criminal thrillers so I would recommend one of his books. How about Black & Blue? It is one of his Bookshots which are less than 200 pages long and costs about $2/£1.50. Plus, this was published this year so if you are doing the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards Challenge, it will count there too.

For option 3, I chose a book from the group's listopia: The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would so I gave it 3 stars.

1. Good friends speak a special dialect that is only understood between themselves...so do book lovers! We all have that special genre that creates that special speech pattern that only other lovers of that genre can understand. Choose a book from your favorite genre and see who else in the group loves that genre too.= Disappearance of the Butterfly by Takashi Tsujii (Poetry- one of my favourite genres.)
