July Buddy Read Discussion
Duration: 01 July 2017 - 31 July 2017



Instructions & Info:

Rules:


Use this thread to find your buddy and determine your book! You can always start by posting books, authors or genres you are interested in. When you decide who your buddy will be and what book(s) you're going to read head on over to the FINAL SIGN UP thread (see link at bottom) and tell me your book and buddy there (there will be instructions to follow).


1. If you want to participate post your name and let people know what genre(s) you are interested in reading and/or any books that you're interested in reading.

2. If you already know who you’d like to read with, go to the Final Sign Up thread and post your information for me!

3. Groups of 3 or more are also fine, the more the merrier.

4. I will create Buddy Discussion Threads for each Buddy group and you will be able to start reading and discussing.

5. There are no rules on what, how much or how often to discuss or how best to pace your reading - whatever works best for each individual group.

5.The challenge usually spans a month. If you'd like to start a longer buddy read, you can mention the time frame you have in mind when posting to look for a buddy. If you need more time to finish your book at the end of the month, just drop me a line in the next month's sign ups to keep your thread open.

6.You CAN sign up for more than one Buddy Read...in fact it's encouraged!

ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK!

Once you have a buddy, go to the July Sign Up Thread and post your book and your buddy.

I can do Crooked Kingdom with you.


Stormie ~ Book Dragon ~ (StormieBookDragon) | 78 comments I would like to try this. I am not much for books that are Romance or Erotica. I prefer Historical Fiction, Fiction, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Mystery, Thriller, Cozy Mysteries, most genres, but the first two I mentioned. Some YA is okay.

Hi Stormie, I noticed you have a few Cornwell books on your to-read list. I am a huge fan of Cornwell. I would be particularly interested in reading Agincourt with you if you want. (It's a book for one of my many challenges) but I would also be interested in any of these:

Stonehenge by Bernard Cornwell The Winter King (The Warlord Chronicles, #1) by Bernard Cornwell The Once and Future King (The Once and Future King #1-4) by T.H. White Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1) by Susan Ee The Golem and the Jinni (The Golem and the Jinni, #1) by Helene Wecker

I tried to pick things we both had in common on our To-Read list. If there's something else you had in mind I'm open to that too!

Hi Angie- I've already started Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2) by Victoria Aveyard but I've put it back down because one of my book groups is reading it for July. I'd be happy to buddy read it with you as well.
