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 January 30 and you'll have until February 2 when someone decides not to participate.

Carrie  (icanhasbooks) | 291 comments Elsa I finished Significance (Significance, #1) by Shelly Crane today, I gave it 2 stars. It was just okay to me.


message 47: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 82 comments Tammy,

I really enjoyed reading all 3 picks! Sucks that there isn't a sequel to "Sins & Secrets ". I thought Taylor's "Daughter of Smoke & Bone" was good- it reminded me a lot of Clare's "City of Bones". Although well written, I was disappointed in the "Graveminder"; Mostly because, to me, there wasn't enough depth to the characters. Thank you!

I glad you enjoyed them!

Elsa Carrion (ecarrion) | 414 comments Carrie just wanted to give you a little update. I was able to read a total of three out of the five you picked for me (not bad if I do say so myself) Speak which I mentioned in an earlier post and the two following.

A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird, #1) by Claudia Gray and loved it, I can't wait till I read the second one.

and I was also able to read

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1) by Gayle Forman Not as great as a thousand pieces of you but you can't really compare the two. Although they are both YA they are under totally different sub-categories, I really enjoyed both.

Thanks Again
