Fabi | 872 comments If you played in May no need to re-post your shelf link unless you renamed it. Just state below that you're playing in June. Easy peazy.

If you've never played before, jump on in. Simply create a new shelf in your GR books library for the Pick For Me challenge. Add 20 or so of your favorite, unread books. Then, add a link to your shelf in a post below.

At the end of the month pairs will be randomly selected to pick a book from your Pick For Me shelf. You'll have the entire month of June to read it and come back to let us know how you liked it.

Picking a book for someone else, and having someone pick a book for you, is FUN! Come play!

You get a bye for this next couple months...but you better name a character in your book after me - even if it's like a pet hamster or an imaginary friend!!!

Dropping hints doesn't work Tessa. hahaha


message 23: by Fabi (new)

Fabi | 872 comments Oh.my.gawwwd. Have y'all seen the books Kate has on her shelf?! *thud* hits the floor
Everybody is going to want to pick for Kate. ha!!!


message 24: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments Hey, now. I'm looking at Oblivion. You should appreciate that! :P You adore the Lux series.


message 25: by Fabi (new)

Fabi | 872 comments I most certainly do. :-). But I'm not sure I could pick a single one off Kate's shelf. :-O


message 26: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments Pfft. She only has, what? 10 5 star books from my list on the pick me list? What's that really... :D


message 27: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Back off Tessa, (and you too Fabi) I want Kate!!! Some of you have all these PNR/Fantasy stuff that would make it very difficult for me to pick.

I'm calling dibs on Kate.


message 28: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2458 comments I'll wrestle you for Kate, Leslie!!


message 29: by Ela (new)

Ela | 4279 comments LMAO! I saw some nice choices on that list as well!

Hey now! I have a lot of non-PNR stuff. Last month, Fabi picked Night Shifts Black for me. :) I still have things like Wrecked and Ruin, Infamous Ellen James, and Door One... Which apparently are the only CR books. I have to add more, I guess.


message 32: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Kate is either going to feel extremely loved & welcomed OR she will think we are a bunch of crazies and go running for the hills.

Bring it Lisa!

Your point? 10 5 star books on that list! 10!!


message 35: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments I just revised my pick-for-me list. I got rid of some of the "first in long series" ones and replaced with some stand alones.


message 36: by Jan (new)

Jan (jan130) Haha. I don't like bully books so it's odds on I will get to pick for Kate.


message 37: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments lol She's got a lot of goodies on there. A lot are not bully books. :)

Alright Lisa. You are now working the VIP entrance at a SXSW party. Glamorous, I know. But...better than a hamster! 😂😂😂


message 39: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2458 comments YAY....I am a star!!!!


message 40: by Robin (new)

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1525 comments Um.. "star"..."ticket taker"...yeah, same thing! (whispers...hey at least you aren't in that weird band, Glass Surface!)


message 41: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh gosh. Could you imagine being a character in a book? I would read way to much into it, lol. Like, wait that's how you see me?


message 42: by [deleted user] (new)

Is the manager of Glass Surface Fabi?


message 43: by Robin (new)

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1525 comments Choices:

A woman with short reddish hair pushed back by tortoise shell glasses...

or

A woman with spiky blue hair wearing a Anthrax t-shirt...

or fill in the blank:
A woman with ____ ____ hair, blah blah blah :D


message 44: by Robin (new)

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1525 comments And she's their lead guitarist.


message 45: by [deleted user] (new)

Oooh make it like a mad lib or when was Glass Surface heydays?

90s?
Like she could be a Winona Rider, Drew Barrymore, or Courtney Love type, lol.


message 46: by Robin (new)

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1525 comments hahaha I didn't put that much thought into GS yet. So far they only come up once, but that might change. *might*


message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

Fabi is? I love it.

I keep thinking of Fabi as a Joan Baez type playing her guitar.


message 48: by Robin (new)

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1525 comments LOL No I was kidding. As of now I have no members mentioned aside from the lead singer and he's a dude that goes nameless. But, if I use them again down the line... 🤔


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

Glass Surface really sounds like an 80s band though.


message 50: by Robin (new)

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1525 comments It totally does. They'll have to be retro.
