September Buddy Read Discussion
Duration: 9/1 - 9/30



Instructions & Info:

Rules:

Use this thread to find your buddy and determine your book! You can always start by posting books, authors or genres you are interested in! When you decide who you buddy and your book you will head on over to the FINAL SIGN UP thread (see link at bottom) and tell me your book and buddy there (there will be instructions to follow) If you are without a partner by the end of sign up I will try to match the remaining people up, so no worries...EVERYONE will have a buddy:-)


1.If you want to participate post your name and maybe let people know what genre(s) you are interested in reading and or any books that you're interested in reading.

2.If you already know who you’d like to read with, go to the Final Sign Up thread and post your information for me!

3.Whoever doesn’t have a partner, we will try to place with another person and you guys can pick a book together! If we have an odd number we can have groups of three, more people to discuss with!

4.I will create Buddy Discussion Threads for each Buddy group and you will be able to start reading and discussing.

5.The challenge will span a month.

6.For each group we can set up a thread so the two of you can discuss without having to sift through a bunch of other conversation.

7.You CAN sign up for more than one Buddy Read...in fact it's encouraged!

ANY QUESTIONS JUST ASK!

Once you have a buddy, go to the September Sign UP Thread and post your book and your buddy.

Mary, some people like to comment on every chapter, some every 5 chapters, some only post thoughts on characters or plot lines (*boring, heroine is weak etc).

It's however you want it to be. Why not click through some of the current ones and see what style you like.

Lauren, i directed you to post 2 to give you an idea of how to post your books. I have done it here for you so you can see.
The reason for this is books like Lost Lake and Fever 1793 are listed by a couple of different authors, so I don't know which you are planning to read. With either the link or the bookcover, we can see the one you want.

Lauren's List
The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe by Mary Simses, A Conspiracy of Alchemists (The Chronicle of Light and Shadow, #1) by Liesel Schwarz, The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling, MWF Seeking BFF My Yearlong Search For A New Best Friend by Rachel Bertsche, A Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cossé


Not sure:
Lost Lake Lost Lake by Sarah Addison AllenLost Lake by Phillip MargolinLost Lake by Russell KirkLost Lake by H.T. Upton
Fever 1793 Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse AndersonFever 1793 by Estelle Kleinman

message 49: by K~Terror (new)

K~Terror (k-terror) | 4537 comments I just got The Beautiful Ashes (Broken Destiny, #1) by Jeaniene Frost that I'm excited about - but not sure how you feel about paranormal/angels?

You should get A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy, #1) by Deborah Harkness and read with Ezi and I too - since you don't have enough buddy reads next month... :D

Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1) by Robin LaFevers was good!

and these are in my wish list that I thought looked interesting:
Deeper (Caroline & West, #1) by Robin York Song of the Fireflies by J.A. Redmerski (but I'm a big Redmerski fan) The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2) by Rick Yancey (Did you read the first book?)


message 50: by V_Nerdbooks (new)
