Awesome! I'm a big mood reader so I would prefer it if we could set aside like a month or so for each book, so I can pick it up when the mood strikes :)

Brianna (bebecburt) | 30 comments I'd like to read The Name of the Star, but not until after February if that's okay?

Totally fine with me! As I mentioned in the previous post it would be great if we could set aside like a month since I'm a huge mood reader :)

I'm cool with that, I'm also a mood reader (although I love making lists that I know I'll never complete hahaha)

Haha I love making lists too and rarely complete them. Do you want to buddy read both of the books or just one of them? :)

I don't have a buddy read for Bad Feminist, if you want to do that. Otherwise, feel free to join any of the other ones :)

I need to read Bad Feminist for a book club near the end of this month. When are you planning to read that one?

My tbr is full for January so definitely not this month. I have to discuss it with the other people who also want to buddy read it, so not sure exactly when yet.

Awesome, maybe during February? :)

That'd be great, maybe during March or April? :)

Great, I'd love to read Genuine fraud pretty soon, but will probably hold off on the Handmaid's tale for a little while longer, just cause it seems like a pretty dense read. Maybe we could read Genuine fraud during February or March? :)

February maybe won't be a good month for me, because a couple of friends from another state are coming over to my house to spend a couple of weeks, so it'll be harder to read. But March is perfect!

Candy (beachbohemian) I'm up for the girl in 6E - if you haven't tackled it already. Let me know when you want to start

I could start whenever, maybe we could read it in February? :)

I would like to read The Kite Runner in April or May. It's on my TBR begging to be read lol Would that work for you at all?


message 25: by Mimmi (new)

Mimmi | 19 comments Does anybody want to read any of these books during March? I'm doing emojiathon and need a buddy read for a challenge. No one has responded about the buddy reads in March so I don't know if they're still happening.


message 26: by Brianna (new)

Brianna (bebecburt) | 30 comments We had talked about doing The Name of the Star in March/April so we can do it in March if you'd like!

That would be great! Should we just do it throughout the entire month?

That'd be good - I'm a much slower reader than I used to be. lol
