Pick for Me Challenge!!!

Come one, come all! It's fun... really!!!

1. Create a new shelf, or update the existing shelf on your Goodreads profile, that includes approximately 20 books that you would like to have someone else use to pick a book for you to read. Label it "Pick For Me." Only books from this designated shelf will be selected for this challenge, (no matter how badly some of us want to pick something else)!

2. Post in this thread that you want to participate this month.

3. Provide the link to your Pick For Me shelf, (this will make it a bit easier for all parties involved... unless you all really *want* to read Forbidden. *a new month, a new pick from me!*)

4. On the last day of the month, someone...the hand of fate, maybe, will use the randomizer to pair up everyone. (Or worst case scenario, Grey will pick for everyone, and you *know* what that means, *shifty eyes*)

5. Friend your partner who is picking for you or set your profile to public or your partner will not be able to access your shelf.

6. Post your selection for your partner in this thread.

7. Come back after finishing the book selected for you by your partner (even if it's after the month has ended) and let everybody know what you think about it.

**The sign up period will remain open until pairs are posted on August 1st and you'll have until August 4th to select a book for your partner.**

Ela, I’m reading this for the TBR challenge if you want to BR...


message 33: by Michele (new)

Michele | 2128 comments Jan, I’ve not read one book on your PFM file - I simply can’t believe I haven’t read at least one! You have some great looking options but I’m taking my time checking them out — so bear with me.

The Last Wolf (The Legend of All Wolves, #1) by Maria Vale

message 37: by Nay (new)

Yeah...what Nay said. I loved them both too!! Isn't Ela going to Robin's right now? I hope she is not too drunk or full of shenanigans to pick for me!!!


message 39: by Steph (new)

Steph | 109 comments For Leslie I choose From This Moment (After We Fall #4) by Melanie Harlow I haven't read it but I've loved everything by Melanie Harlow that I've read. I put this one on my TBR as well. :)

Now I just need my pick from Grey!


message 40: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Thanks Stephanie, with THAT cover, how can it be bad? 😉

Tessa | 1761 comments Lisa wrote: "Tessa I choose The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1) by Rae Carson for you. Hope you enjoy!!!"

Oooh, thank you, Lisa! I forgot about that. I think one of the authors I read recommended it. :)

Stephanie, this was actually a hard pick for me. I loved the first Never Never book...but the 3rd one was not a good conclusion in my opinion, so in good conscience I can't recommend. A couple others I am interested in... But havent read... You already read Jezebel...so on that note. My choice for you is one I loved when I read it. Wallbanger Wallbanger (Cocktail, #1) by Alice Clayton by Alice Clayton. Hope you enjoy!


message 43: by Tessa (new)

Tessa | 1761 comments Grey wrote: "Stephanie, this was actually a hard pick for me. I loved the first Never Never book...but the 3rd one was not a good conclusion in my opinion, so in good conscience I can't recommend. A couple othe..."

That one had me laughing and swooning a lot. I hope you enjoy it Stephanie!


message 44: by Nay (new)

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Wallbanger was fantastic! I only read it because my friends were all reading it, and I really didn't think I'd enjoy it, but I ended up completely loving it. I never realized a book could be so funny and sexy at the same time!


message 45: by Paula (new)

Paula White | 795 comments Nay - I choose Crow (Boston Underworld, #1) by A. Zavarelli for you

Hey Michele. I just got home from work not long ago and just got to this. You pick for me and I pick for you. That's funny!!

Thanks for your pick. I've read mixed reviews of it but I do wanna try that one. Always looking for that great new shifter series LOL.

So, in that vein, for you I pick Seven Years Seven Years (Seven, #1) by Dannika Dark

I really liked that whole series, which IMO got better as it went on, till the final book which was the best one. But you gotta read the rest of the series first!

I didn't like Arsen - controversial I know!


message 48: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Funny Grey because I think it was because of you guys that I skipped Never, Never series. I cannot stand loving something, then being disappointed at ending. So thanks for letting me dodge that bullet.

Paula, I am the one other person who didn't like Arsen either. I hate not liking popular books, but at least I am not alone.


message 49: by Melinda (new)

Melinda Ruyten | 1025 comments I loved Wallbanger too. That book was hilarious. I think that was the first book I read from Alice Clayton.


message 50: by Nay (new)

Nay (4ukcats) | 3499 comments Yeah, knowing how some of my tastes have changed, I'm not sure how I'd feel about Arsen now either. Not necessarily because of the story line (because that type of angst is my thing), but because of the writing, in general, and because I've gotten more critical in my cranky oldER age 😂. One day I'll try to read it again and see.
