A new challenge for 2018 is the ATF Challenge. For me...some of the books that are my all-time favorites that I may recommend, may not necessarily have gotten 5 stars...but nonetheless are still on my favorite books of all time list, so here we are-Month FIVE!

And I think now that we've figured it out, the rules of this challenge are pretty simple.

1) Between now and the 30th of April, members express their interest in participating in the ATF challenge for May.
2) Sometime on May 1st, it will be randomized by one of our illustrious randomizers to see who the lucky 5th woman of honor will be.
3) She will post the link to her All Time Favorite Books list (which could be her 5 stars list... or it could be something new that she makes up specifically for this challenge, however, it should include at least 10 books, in fact the more books the better). I will also link the Honoree's list here in this first post.
4) Then this is where it gets fun... the Honoree could deign to 'help' pick a book for each of us that are participating to read from that list that we haven't read, if we have it or can easily get our hands on it. Or...she could just let us run amok and pick from all of her favorite choices.

For example: here is the link to Grey's All Time Favorites List

And last, but certainly not least...
5) The next super fun part of this challenge is that everyone else gets to throw a suggestion into the pot for the honoree, one of their 5 star suggestions, which will then be tossed into the randomizer again (or the honoree can just choose one, whichever floats her boat!) But this way, the honoree also has an All Time Favorite to read this month.

Clear as mud? Please ask if you have any questions, as we continue to iron out the details!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The honoree for May 2018 is ... Nay!!

The books we've chosen from all of our suggestions and plucked from the magical randomizer for her to read is...

Voyeur by Fiona Cole picked by Lisa, and gave it 3.5 stars!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Lisa picked Painted Faces (Painted Faces, #1) by L.H. Cosway and rated

Leslie picked At This Moment (Of Love And Madness #1) by Karen Cimms and DNF-ed so she picked a new one Falling into You (Falling, #1) by Jasinda Wilder and rated it

Paula picked A Love Letter to Whiskey by Kandi Steiner and rated it 4 stars!

Tessa picked Pandora's Box (The Road to Hell #1) by Gracen Miller and rated it 3 stars.

Ela picked At This Moment (Of Love And Madness #1) by Karen Cimms and rated

Jean picked At This Moment (Of Love And Madness #1) by Karen Cimms and rated it 4 stars and continued with the series and devoured books 2 and 3 in the series and LOVED them!

Jan picked Mists of the Serengeti by Leylah Attar and rated

Grey cheated and is double dipping this month, using her Pick-for-me A Love Letter to Whiskey by Kandi Steiner and rated 4 stars.

I LURVED that series!!! I was so sad when she ended it. A bunch of my reading buddies at that time (at paperback swap) read those. They made their rounds through the book swap games we used to do.

Huh. I need to read book four. I read the first three and I wonder why I stopped? I obviously liked them. Though, gah, it's been too long since I read them to remember what happened. :(

Not that I'm aware of. I remember that she's a college professor and I think I read that at the time the series ended, she was busy with school.
