Nicole Dunton (willowstarserenity) Having trouble getting through your to read shelf? Can't decide what to read next? Would you like someone to choose a book for you to read? This is a monthly challenge where participants get paired up randomly and their partner picks a book for them to read. If this sounds like fun to you, welcome to this month's Pick It For Me challenge!

Sign ups end on the 24th. Partners will be assigned shortly thereafter. Book choices for your partners are to be given on or before the 1st. Please check back often during that time to be sure that you don't miss anything!

Guidelines
** Sign up below with your to-read shelf (or the shelf you prefer your picks to come from). Please do this so I will not have to guess which one.
* Please be sure that your profile is set to public, or that you friend your partner so that they can see your shelves. - IF YOUR PROFILE IS NOT SET TO PUBLIC, PLEASE PROVIDE A LIST FOR YOUR PARTNER TO CHOOSE FROM

If you do not plan to participate or are unsure if you can pick a novel for your partner, PLEASE, PLEASE do not sign up. It is very difficult to re-pair individuals once we are underway.

After your partner selects a book for you, be sure and check back in each week or so to let us know your progress. Tell us if you like the book, love it or think it is just so-so.

Nancy85 (nancymarie85) Lois, I pick for you
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik - heard that this is good
Stalking Jack the Ripper (Stalking Jack the Ripper, #1) by Kerri Maniscalco -read this and i loved it.


message 33: by Alyssa (last edited Aug 25, 2018 05:33AM) (new)

Alyssa Hi Nancy!
My pick for you is Fool Moon (The Dresden Files, #2) by Jim Butcher . I’m currently reading the series and absolutely love it. However, it seems that everyone who has read it agrees that this is the worst book in the series, so if you find that it’s not for you, I’ve also chosen Golden Son (Red Rising, #2) by Pierce Brown . I know that you did not say to pick two, but you have so many great series on your list that it was too hard not to. I hope you enjoy!
