Here are your partners:

Jenny and Joycedale
Sarah and Karen
Jenny and Anne

1. Sarah https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...
2. Jenny https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...
3. Joycedale https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...
4. Karen https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

***If you do not have access to your partner's shelf, please send a friend request to your partner!***


You now have one week to decide amongst yourselves how many books you will pick for each other, and to make those choices.

You can chat with your partner either here or by PM- PREFERABLY BY PERSONAL MESSAGE SO THAT THIS BOARD IS NOT CLUTTERED UP.

Either way, all of you MUST do a post on here this week that is similar to the example that I did on the first post:


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 3/16/2015)- 4 stars. Intriguing premise, great characters, and a really cool retelling that was unfortunately plagued by predictability.
The Hunt (read 3/28/2015)- 4 stars. The Hunt had lots of suspense, admirable lead characters, and kept me scared and nervous.

Note that you have until the end of November to READ THE BOOKS and edit/fill in the information/short review at the bottom. Technically, you will have until the end of the year, as we are not doing a PIFM challenge in December.
Have fun!

I'm really interested to hear about Vengeance Road. It's on sale right now and I'm wondering if I should get it. I really enjoyed One of Us is Lying.

I love my picks. I sort of started Origin the night before I knew it was a PIFM book. ;-D I'm almost done.

Good enough for me. I still need a V for my A - Z challenge. ;)

Well, I finished my first PIFM book, Origin (Robert Langdon, #5) by Dan Brown .

It was a fun read for me as I love googling and learning about all the new art, places to visit, architecture, history, etc., that we always get from Dan Brown's books. This one was a page turner for me and I gave it 4 stars.

Perfect start to my 3 books!!

Oh I forgot I read my 2nd book. The Fold by Peter Clines

I really liked the premise for this book. A good sci-fi. And then we get to the last 25% or so, and it got really bizarre and went in an entirely different direction. I gave it 4 stars. Overall, I did enjoy it. I listened to this one on audio and Ray Porter narrated. He's one of my favorite performers!

Sarah | 29 comments Finished my first book yesterday 11/9. I read The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James in basically a day. I couldn't put it down and I loved the twists. 4 stars.

Finished Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3) by Laini Taylor yesterday, 11/26. Really strong finale to this trilogy and I gave it 4.5 stars.

☆Joycedale☆ | 310 comments Finished The Compound (The Compound, #1) by S.A. Bodeen and gave it 4 stars. It was short and interesting enough that I read it in about 2 hours lol. It really was a good story. While there is a sequel with the way it ended it could be done.

Oh thank goodness we have until the end of December on this one. Whew. I lost a week of reading time with the flu.

Same Karen! I didn't know that Tome Topple Readathon was happening this month, that's basically 2 weeks my TBR went out the window!


Karen’s Library | 11320 comments Mod
Wow, I finished all my picks this time!

I finished Wonder Woman Warbringer (DC Icons, #1) by Leigh Bardugo and really enjoyed it! There was some cool stuff about the Helen of Troy legend. I think I liked the premise of this book even more than the Wonder Woman movie. :)
