The Pick It For Me Challenge is very simple.

1. You sign up.

2. You are assigned partners (I will organize this).

3. With your partner decide how many books you will each select for the other. Remember that this challenge will last for 2 months. If you want to challenge yourselves you can agree to select lots of books for each other!

4. You tell your partner what shelf to pick books from and provide a link to the shelf.

5. Pick a book/books for your partner and post them for them to see.

6. Read the book(s) that your partner has picked for you and update the thread with the book, your rating, and maybe a sentence or two (or longer!) saying what you thought of it/them. (You can be ambitious and do a review too!)

e.g.
My name: Jenny
My partner: Sarah
The books picked for me: Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer The Hunt (The Hunt, #1) by Andrew Fukuda
Cinder (read 1/16/2017)- 4 stars. Intriguing premise, great characters, and a really cool retelling that was unfortunately plagued by predictability.
The Hunt (read 1/28/2017)- 4 stars. The Hunt had lots of suspense, admirable lead characters, and kept me scared and nervous.

I will make a separate thread for the challenge itself after I pick partners.

Sign up below if interested! Please post a link to your shelf you'd like your partner to pick from, preferably one made just for this challenge, with about 20-40 books to choose from. We'll leave the sign ups until Oct. 8th , and then I'll pick partners!
