Sonja (sonjac) | 1160 comments 2018 JUNE PIFM Challenge

Super excited to be hosting this challenge for the first time! I love this challenge as it gives me so many new books to read that I otherwise might have completely missed!
Be brave, come join us!


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:

✱✱ What are your thoughts on movies? ✱✱

A. Eh, the book is always better
B. Something to watch when I'm not reading
C. I enjoy a good movie
D. I'm a movie nut! I could quote all my favorites!


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

IMPORTANT DATES
Sign ups will remain open until May 24th (3pm US PST/6 pm US EDT).
For your convenience a Time Zone Converter.

You’ll have until May 29th (3pm US PST/6 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!✱

Sonja (sonjac) | 1160 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!

Sonja (sonjac) | 1160 comments PICKING RULES

Since Summer begins in June and Summer is typically blockbuster movie time, June here at PIFM is Summer at the Movies! To celebrate, PIFM for June is all about some of the top 25 blockbusters of all time. Can you recognize them by one of their MOST FAMOUS quotes?
You can view the full list I found here Top Grossing Films of all Time (adjusted)

We have very few books in common, so I do hope you like your picks.

”I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.”
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Naked in Death (In Death #1) by J.D. Robb - police procedural series set in the near future with romance.

”Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me, aren’t you?”
Off Sides (Off, #1) by Sawyer Bennett
The Deal (Off-Campus, #1) by Elle Kennedy - college hockey player convinces girl to help him in class by pretending to date her so football player will notice. One of my all time favorite heroes.

”Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?”
Hired Bride (Beaufort Brides, #1) by Noelle Adams
Romancing the Duke (Castles Ever After, #1) by Tessa Dare - girl inherits castle after father dies but Duke living at Castle won't leave.

”Life finds a way.”
The Undomestic Goddess by Sophie Kinsella - cute story of a lawyer having a breakdown and accidently ending up as "the help" even though she doesn't know anything about cleaning.
Lick (Stage Dive, #1) by Kylie Scott - can a drunken Vegas wedding with rock star lead to more?

”I see you.”
The Truth About Happily Ever After by Karole Cozzo
Spelled (The Storymakers, #1) by Betsy Schow - awesome Wizard of Oz retelling

”You're gonna need a bigger boat.”
All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins
The Girl Who Knew Too Much (Burning Cove, #1) by Amanda Quick - set in the 30's just outside Hollywood, but the studios still wield power in this romantic suspense novel

”I’m King of the world!”
Some Sort of Love (Happy Crazy Love, #3) by Melanie Harlow
Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones - Sophie is turned into an old woman by a witch and finally leaves home and starts to live. Great YA fantasy.

”My heart wants to sing every song that it hears.”
Getting Rid of Bradley by Jennifer Crusie - Romance with dogs, cops and quirky characters (and the worst hair dye job ever)
On the Edge (The Edge, #1) by Ilona Andrews - ignore the cheesy cover; great paranormal romance where h is barely getting by and raising her younger brothers in a place between magic and the normal world.

”May the Force be with you.”
Glimmerglass (Faeriewalker, #1) by Jenna Black
Poison Study (Study, #1) by Maria V. Snyder - amazing fantasy novel where the heroine is given the choice to be executed or become the new poison tester. Really great world building.

"Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) by Sarah J. Maas
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan - since you enjoyed Harry Potter, you'll probably like this series as well. Hero finds out he is half Greek god and there are monsters in the world who want to kill all like him.
