* 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)

Shadow and Bone (Grisha Verse, #1) by Leigh Bardugo because I loved it and it's been the longest added on your shelf!
The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw because a lot of people recommended it to me and I want to know if you'd enjoy it too!

Hope you like one!

You and Cindee were the last two to post shelves, so maybe just partner up?


message 39: by guiana! (new)

guiana! (gvianai) | 20 comments Jamie was also one of the last to sign up but also didn't get a partner, I think.

Okay, I think I figured everything out! SO, 28 of us signed up + Hannah (= 29), which makes it uneven ... except Clara and Margaret signed up twice, so actually with Hannah it's 27 :p There are 12 pairs, meaning 24 people are partnered, so here are the 3 who didn't get paired:

Kaitlyn (message 22 - still needs to make a shelf)
Cindee (message 30)
Jess (message 31)

I don't know how Hannah wants to handle this, but given that Cindee and Jess DO have shelves prepared, I don't see why they can't be partners


message 41: by Misty (last edited May 31, 2018 08:21PM) (new)

Misty | 633 comments Hey Kati! These are the books that I picked for you:

Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer because I want to read it sooo badly!
The Forgotten Book by Mechthild Gläser because you need a fantasy option as well!
Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway because the second I read the summary, I immediately added it to my want to read shelf!

I hope you like them!
