Me too, Lisa! I can't wait to hear what some of you think about books I enjoyed and what others think about books I might want to move up on my tbr.

Thanks so much Grey and Fabi for keeping this all organized for us every month!


message 7: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments I am excited too! I look forward to everyone's reactions. Problem is, instead of reducing our TBR, we end up increasing it! 😄 Oh well, that is what we are here for right? The love of books.

Too bad Maryse doesn't participate. 😔

😂

That made me laugh. I kind of dont want you to. Just to keep randomly popping in, "I can't find Anna's shelf!"


message 12: by Ela (new)

Ela | 4279 comments LOL


message 13: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2458 comments Awww, give poor Michelle a break. She's bound to be stressing. I clicked on the link in Fabi's post and it went right to Anna's pick for me shelf. I hope you find it, Michelle - if not, I'll go to it and tell you what's on her list :D I'm helpful that way!

Pick For Me Here is the link. :) I don't need you to pick right away. I probably won't get to it until late next week. No rush.


message 15: by Jan (new)

Jan (jan130) | 1159 comments I've started mine and liking it already! ACOTAR.


message 16: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments Same. Started mine and liking it so far.


message 17: by Fabi (new)

Fabi | 872 comments Me too and loving it. Leslie did so good!

Paula White | 795 comments Jan - did you finish May's?

Jan (jan130) | 1159 comments Paula wrote: "Jan - did you finish May's?"

No. It was pretty slow and I got side-tracked by other shinies. (What's new?) But I haven't totally given up. It wasn't horrible, just slow. So I'd like to give it another try sometime. It was It's You (It's You #1) by Katy Regnery


message 20: by Paula (new)

Paula White | 795 comments Sorry for the bad pick Jan! Her CR are normally pretty good, guess PNR not so much


message 21: by Fabi (new)

Fabi | 872 comments Watching and Wanting (Housemates, #4) by Jay Northcote
Finished and LOVED it. 4 stars and a huge thank you to Leslie. *muah*


message 22: by Ela (new)

Ela | 4279 comments I'm waiting to read mine since I'm excited about it. Getting other reads out of the way...


message 23: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments I am about 25% into mine Heaven and Hell (Heaven and Hell, #1) by Kristen Ashley

So far, I like the story sooooo much better than other KA's I tried...I am just worried I will get bored as KA can be "wordy".

Don't think about it....just enjoy the story!


message 26: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michellesantiago) | 299 comments I finally found Anna's Pick For Me shelf! It was buried - and my phone didn't go to the additional pages. WOW. There there are a lot of shelves there, my friend.

Okay, so the only two on your list that I have read are The Opportunist and Wallbanger. So... what are you in the mood for? Funny sexy (Wallbanger) or some mind-f*ckery?


message 27: by Nay (new)

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Oooh, Anna's going to get a great pick either way! Both of those books are awesome!

Not your fault Paula. I put it on my shelf after all. I do like some of her CRs so I was keen to try her pnr. But yeah, it didn't really grab me.

I have an addiction to creating shelves. :) I'm in the mood for a funny sexy book.


message 30: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments Well, I looked and you have Wallbanger on your shelf. That qualifies and funny and sexy.


message 31: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (michellesantiago) | 299 comments Wallbanger is my pick for you then, Anna!


message 32: by Nay (new)

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Michelle wrote: "Wallbanger is my pick for you then, Anna!"

That book is hilarious! And so, so sexy too!


message 33: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2458 comments Done with my pick for me book. Thank you, Amy. I thoroughly enjoyed Sex Love Repeat. A 4 star read for me. My twisted mind would have preferred she had made a different choice, but no...that wouldn't have been the right ending!


message 34: by Jean (new)

Jean | 1657 comments I'm starting mine today! Since there are mixed reviews from everyone here, I'm curious to see if I like it!


message 35: by Jean (new)

Jean | 1657 comments Well, I was going to start today, but I just got Sugar & Gold thru Netgalley and now I'm feeling squirrelly!


message 36: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2458 comments OMG Jean - you HAVE to read it. Now!!! Nik is amazing. The story is amazing. It's a quick read too. It's got swoony moments, heart stopping moments, angsty moments...and it's got at least a zillion quotes you will want to highlight!


message 37: by Robin (new)

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1525 comments ^^^Agreed!

The new Christina Lauren standalone is coming out today. Just sayin'......


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

Mine is dead done. Dnf. Sorry for the language in my update but that seriously upset me.

Nope. Nada. Delete.


message 41: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments I just looked and saw why. Nope, no other words needed. That language was appropriate.

You can throw out an F bomb whenever you need to, bev. No judgement here, I'm with you!


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

Thank you. It can be satisfying, but I also always see/hear my mom.

Haha bev. Old habits die hard.

Wow....sorry that was such an awful pick. Had no clue...but I would have had a huge issue with that too!!!


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

Lisa, it was my pick. No apologies. I bought it years ago after it was on the blog. I put it on my shelf for this challenge. At some point I would of read it.
This is just one of my buttons.


message 47: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Bev, I used to have Jahleel Jahleel (Loving All Wrong, #1) by S. Ann Cole on my TBR....I was looking forward to your thoughts to try to remember why I removed it. Ugh! It sounds like its not for me too.


message 48: by Ela (new)

Ela | 4279 comments No judgement please but I don't remember those words because I probably blocked them out because I otherwise loved the book.


message 49: by [deleted user] (new)

Absolutely no judgment, Ela. A ton love this book. I bought it off of Maryse's review and people in the comments loved it.
There are tons of things that I read over that are buttons for others.
I kept going over in my head how she meant that scene to be read.....but anyway it just killed the heroine for me.


message 50: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Ela, no judgement sweetie. As long as you don't hold me down and make me read Transcendence.
