☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7258 comments I will be doing this for Nicole this month. Hopefully I will do a good job.

Meet new people and perhaps find your new Book Best Friend in this challenge by CRAZY FOR YA BOOKS!


Duration: November 1-30, 2017

Sign up period: Until October 30th, 2017
Partners will be assigned the next day.
(Please be patient; it takes a little time to match everyone up.)

-In this challenge, players are partnered up based on their favorite books and assigned a certain criteria. This may be a genre, author, or Listopia list.
-The partners must then choose a book that fits the given criteria.
-They may choose to read a book that is new to them both, or they may choose to read a book that the other person has already read. This must be a mutual decision. One person cannot read something new if the other is reading something off a partner’s “read” list.

- In this challenge, participants are required to sign up first.
- The participants will later be paired up based on their sign-up responses, if possible.
- You will find who your partner is below, in post #3.
- Participants need to CHOOSE & READ at least one book.
- You may either choose one book that you both read for the first time, or you may choose a book that your partner has already read.
- When you finish, compare the rating your partner has given with your rating.
- You complete the challenge when you and your partner both finish reading your books.

Please post below in this format if you are interested in playing:

Favorite genre: (Please choose 3 or less)
