HeatherMarie (heathermariereads) | 659 comments 2018 April PIFM Challenge

What is the Pick-It-For-Me Challenge?


The Pick-It-For-Me Challenge (PIFM) is a reading challenge where each participant gives and receives book recommendations based on a given a set of rules. The assignment method and book selection rules change each month so it’s always new and always different.

The idea of the PIFM challenge is that you will get new-to-you books and authors selected for you as well as a push to read some books that have been lingering on your shelves. You may not be interested in the new books recommended, which is why you also get a minimum of four books from your shelf.

You only have to read ONE book to complete this challenge!

After signups are closed, your names and any extra info will go into the super secret PIFM randomizer and it will select someone for you to recommend books to and someone to give you recommendations. This list will be posted along with any specific picking rules for the month.

In order to participate you need to either HAVE YOUR PROFILE SET TO PUBLIC (preferable), or friend the person giving you recommendations. PLEASE NOTE: if you choose to keep your profile private, it is your responsibility to send a friend request to the person picking for you as soon as possible after the matchups are posted. Whether your profile is private or not, it is also very important that your profile be set to receive Private Messages (PMs) in case anyone needs to reach out to you (mods, organizer etc.)

Everything gets done in this thread so be sure to come back often!!!

Repicks:
You can ask for repicks if:
✱ The books picked for you are not yet released.
✱ If you have already read the chosen book(s) and they are on your ‘read’ shelf.
✱ If you did not receive four picks from your ‘to-read’ shelf, with at least one from your preferred shelf.

You may NOT ask for repicks because:
✱ A book is not available at your library.
✱ A genre or author you don’t enjoy.

INFORMATION NEEDED TO SIGN UP
Please sign up in this thread with the answer to the following question:

✱✱ Challenge sorting question:
How do you feel about April Fool’s Day?
✱✱

A. April What?
B. I hate pranks
C. I love pranks
D. Only if I’m the pranker


✱✱ If you have a preferred shelf, please list it along with your pick! ✱✱

IMPORTANT DATES
Sign ups will remain open until March 24th - 6 pm US EDT
For your convenience a Time Zone Converter.

You’ll have until March 27th - 3 pm US EDT to make your recommendations.

Please do not start reading your book(s) until the first of the month. You then have the entire month to read your pick(s) and give some feedback.

If you’re new please read the PIFM Guidelines and FAQ. If you have any questions that are not addressed there, please feel free to ask!


Please note that late sign ups will be included at the host's discretion and no one will be included after re-picks are assigned!✱

HeatherMarie (heathermariereads) | 659 comments TIPS TO MAKE THE CHALLENGE ENJOYABLE FOR EVERYONE!


Pickees
✱ To help your picker understand the type of books you like or are currently reading, please make sure your ‘read’ shelf is up to date. You can create shelves for books you DNFed (Did Not Finish) or authors that don’t work for you as well as favorite books and authors. In addition, you might consider updating your profile. You can include info about your favorite books, authors, genres, themes or tropes (or themes/tropes you dislike – i.e. secret baby).
✱ Please do not specify likes/dislikes in the sign-up thread. This information will not be included in the pairings and your pickee may not see your message and does not need to rely on that information when making picks.

Pickers
✱ Please remember this is primarily a romance readers group. Thus, most, if not all, of your picks should be romance. There are various sub genres within the romance category - Contemporary, Historical, Paranormal, Romantic Suspense, Erotica, M/M, Urban Fantasy. If your pickee reads a wide variety, you could add a non-romance as a choice.

✱ Choose at least 4 new titles for your pickee. These can be brand new to them (not found on any of their shelves) or a book found on their shelves if they've never read any of the author's work previously.

A few hints to help with book selection:
Check the book’s publishing date. Select "date pub" from the checkbox selections and save.
Check pickee's personalized shelves, especially their exclusive shelves. A personalized shelf is one the member has created. (e.g., 'to read next', 'favorites' ‘didn’t like’)
Make sure the books you choose are not on their 'read' shelf. Just because it isn't rated doesn't mean it wasn't read.
Look at your pickee's 'read' shelf and see what genres they have recently read or read the most. Reviewing their ‘read’ shelf might help you in choosing something they are interested in reading right now.
✱ If your pickee reads lots of books in a genre you are not familiar with (erotic romance, GLBT, YA, etc.) Contact the Mods or the month's organizer for guidance.
Include a variety of books (e.g., shorter page count, new addition to their 'to-read' shelf, an older book on their 'to-read' shelf) This variety gives your pickee options when choosing the book or books they will be reading this month. Use the sort feature within their shelves to determine date a book was added, published or read; page numbers, ratings, etc.

If you want to volunteer to make repicks:
✱ We love that you want to help out, but please remember those who need picks have been waiting for a long time already. Please only volunteer if you are able to make the repicks within a few hours of the deadline. Thank you!

Diane ~Firefly~ | 1439 comments Rebecca

Wow, we have a lot of books in common, although you didn't seem quite as enamored of a couple of my favorite UF series, so I tried to be a bit broader than normal in your picks. I hope you like them.

Chattering Teeth: This had more depth than your standard YA pararnormal - Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey. Or check out Eve Langlais with Kodiak's Claim. This has a human insurance investigator heading to Alaska to check on a business reporting too many issues. But she doesn't know the whole town is shifters and the bear in charge takes a liking to her.

Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side (Jessica, #1) by Beth Fantaskey Kodiak's Claim (Kodiak Point, #1) by Eve Langlais

Silly String: We have some bright cover with High Stakes by Erin McCarthy which is a humorous vampire book or give my favorite historical author, Amanda Quick, another chance with Rendezvous, where Augusta is surprised to be engaged to straight-laced Harry as her family has always been reckless and impulsive.

High Stakes (Vegas Vampires, #1) by Erin McCarthy Rendezvous by Amanda Quick

Whoopee Cushion: Dead End Dating by Kimberly Raye is on the humorous side as Lil decides to start a dating agency for vampires. Or check out a great contemporary romance where Ev wakes up hungover and married in Vegas to what turns out to be a famous guitarist. Then see how they get to know each other and meet the rest of the band in Lick by Kylie Scott.

Dead End Dating (Dead End Dating #1) by Kimberly Raye Lick (Stage Dive, #1) by Kylie Scott

Rubber Chicken: We have shifters in both choices. Destiny Kills by Kerri Arthur has one of the best opening pages I've ever read. Or check out To Woo A Warrior by Jane Cousins where warrior Hadleigh is tricked into trying out for a reality show and Vaughn and the other Maat brothers love she can take care of herself.

Destiny Kills (Myth and Magic #1) by Keri Arthur To Woo A Warrior (Southern Sanctuary, #1) by Jane Cousins

Prank Call: We have some grumpy characters ahead. In Heart of the Dragon by Gena Showalter, Darius has buried anything good to do his job protecting Atlantis until he sees Grace for the first time. Slouch Witch by Helen Harper has a by the books arcane investigator get accidently "tied" to an expelled witch who does the minimum possible and they need to solve a case together.

Heart of the Dragon (Atlantis, #1) by Gena Showalter Slouch Witch (The Lazy Girl's Guide to Magic, #1) by Helen Harper

Hand Buzzer: My favorite fantasy series starts with Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings. Or check out a town created by different shape shifter families that hire an outside sheriff and don't share their secret in Shifting Dreams by Elizabeth Hunter

Pawn of Prophecy (The Belgariad, #1) by David Eddings Shifting Dreams (Cambio Springs, #1) by Elizabeth Hunter

Googly Eye Glasses: I love the family bonds (and the house) in Magic in the Wind by Christine Feehan. Or give Ilona Andrews another shot with a magical Inn where the InnKeeper has total control and you learn the basic paranormal beings might have a more otherworldly beginning in Clean Sweep.

Magic in the Wind (Drake Sisters, #1) by Christine Feehan Clean Sweep (Innkeeper Chronicles, #1) by Ilona Andrews

Mentos & Soda: I loved the idea of the world with the half-fae otherworldly investigators in Witchling by Yasmine Galenorn. Or check out Forged in Fire by Trish McCallan where Beth has psychic dreams of a plane being hijacked and decides to approach Zane and his buddies to stop it.

Witchling (Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon, #1) by Yasmine Galenorn Forged in Fire (Red-Hot SEALs, #1) by Trish McCallan
