Sign up will be open until: April 15th

Partners will be picked on the same day!


Guidelines for this challenge:

* Create a "shelf" for your partner to choose from before the challenge begins
* You choose 3 books from your partners shelf for your partner to read
* Your partner picks three from your shelf for you to read
*After you read your book come back and post to let your partner know when you are done and what you thought of the book (no pressure, it can be just one sentence)

Clockwork Prince (The Infernal Devices, #2) by Cassandra Clare - I've read this one, this trilogy is amazing!

Enjoy!

:( Did you message them privately? With these type of games, I do that after about three days if I haven't heard anything from my partner


message 42: by Kikijanika (new)

Kikijanika | 2932 comments Well, I did today but I don't know if she's been online lately. At least she hasn't made any updatws after April 17th. But I guess I'll just wait. There's still time after all ☺


message 43: by Sarah (last edited May 12, 2018 05:39PM) (new)

Sarah | 198 comments I started The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry on 4/22 and finished it today, 4/24. I gave it 3.5 stars

I started Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4) by Sarah J. Maas on 4/29 and finished it today, 5/2. I gave it 4 stars.

I'm still working on One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez . It's definitely not a quick read, especially since all of the characters have virtually identical names but I'm trying not to quit on it.


message 44: by Leah (new)

Leah | 2664 comments I read Defy the Worlds (Defy the Stars, #2) by Claudia Gray , but I didn't like it. It wasn't nearly as good as the first book.

Kindred by Octavia E. Butler because it's on my to read list too and I've heard good things about it, and
Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1) by Kami Garcia because I like this series.

Hope there's a winner!
