Pick for Me Challenge!!!

Come one, come all! You know you wanna...

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...hint hint, Nay, Marissa...*giggle*)!

2. Post in this thread that you want to participate this month. If you don't post here, I don't know you want in.

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 My Time in The Affair. *a new month, a new pick from me!*)

4. On September 2nd, someone...the hand of fate, maybe, will use the randomizer to pair up everyone. (Or worst case scenario, I really 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, or at least that you've finished...or DNF'd it (another book off your list is always a win in our book!)

**The sign up period will remain open until pairs are posted on September 2nd and you'll have until September 5th to select a book for your partner or one of these other pick-happy little moppets will jump in and do it for you. (Sorry I'm late getting this post up!)**

Sample shelf: Grey's Pick For Me

pay no attention to these shelves...I just have the following ones saved

Robin Hill (robinhill) | 1525 comments I'm skipping this month. I have Maggie on the brain and she won't leave me alone so I'll be writing in my spare time. Have fun!

I’m happy you’re writing, Robin, but sad it’s another month you won’t have the chance to pick for me!

I’m in, Grey!

Lisa Aiello (lisaaiello) | 2458 comments I have to bow out this month also. Work is out of control and just no time to read right now 😢

I feel like re-reading Ghosted. That's how much I loved it.


message 30: by Kim (new)

Kim Carter | 140 comments I am out this month - the only reading I have been doing the past two months is excel spreadsheets - thank God for audio books, but I have to listen to something that I don't need to pay attention to. I will be back in the game in October.

And see, now I'm re-reading Ghosted. :) YOUR FAULT! :P Actually to be honest, I really did adore it that much that I can re-read it again.

Whoever gets chosen as my PFM has some serious pressure on them now. Thanks, ladies!

I think I might listen to it, as well. It's on both Hoopla and Audible Escape. Lots of choices.

Michele | 2128 comments Lynette, I've gotta go with Someone Else's Ocean by Kate Stewart . I loved it and I think you will too!!

As a sidenote, I really loved The Last Hour of Gann but it's super long. When you have time, you should definitely try to read it.


message 44: by Grey (new)

Grey | 2385 comments Mod
It was another very easy pick for me. Layne, I hope you enjoy Unloved by Katy Regnery !


message 45: by Marissa (new)

Marissa (marissadonofrio) | 169 comments Hey Judy! My pick for you is Footsteps (Pagano Family, #1) by Susan Fanetti . If I see Susan Fanetti on a list, I’m always picking her. She’s ridiculously underrated and so unbelievably talented! I hope you enjoy it!

Great pick, Grey! You’re going to love this book, Layne!


message 47: by Leslie (new)

Leslie | 2430 comments Ok Ms world-traveler, cookie-lover Melinda -

I pick: Muscle Memory Muscle Memory by Stylo Fantome

You had quite a few I've read on your list but none were 5 stars for me, so I went with one I WANT to read instead. This one intrigues me and cant wait to hear what you think.

I know what you'll be picking for me if you ever get my name, Marissa. 😜

I think I'm going to need to apologize before I pick your book, because I haven't read one single book on your PFM shelf or do I ever or often read PNR or fantasy. Well, except for when it includes time travel and that's why I'm picking Beyond the Highland Mist (Highlander, #1) by Karen Marie Moning . I've borrowed this ebook twice from my library and never got to it. Maybe I'll read it this month, too.
