message 1: by Charlie (new)

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4439 comments I'm majorly procrastinating from work this afternoon and I've seen this game on loads of groups so thought I'd start a thread here.

Basically someone picks a book and then the next person says if they love it, hate it or haven't read it. That person then picks a book.

Example:
Person 1
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J.K. Rowling

Person 2
Love it
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Person 3
Hate it
The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3) by J.R.R. Tolkien


I'll start with:

Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1) by Kristin Cashore

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

I think it'll be important to find a format that makes it clear we're responding to the previous post and not talking about the book WE link.

The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard, #1) by Scott Lynch


message 8: by Timelord Iain (new)

Timelord Iain | 14947 comments No worries... I'm purposely picking popular books with polarizing opinions to make the thread interesting... I know half the people here hated Uprooted... and Wheel of Time is super slow if you're used to Sanderson and other newer authors inspired by Jordan...
