📚OCTOBER 2019 Dusty Bookshelf Challenge:
💈 TENTH Shelf for 2019 ~ WINTER TIME


Please post your shelves. NO COMMENTS in this thread please. After I post the pair, it will add a link to the shelf, and then you can add discussion comments.

How It Will Work:
1) Please only post no more than 10 books that you would like to read this month.
*minimum 4 books.

2) An assigned person will FIRST pick TWO BOOKS from your post series.

3) SECOND, the assigned person will recommend ONE book that you share in common. (Use compare books)
OR a new release (no older than 60 days from the date we pick)

4) You have one month: OCTOBER 2019 to try to read one of the chosen books. You can read ALL THREE if you would like (*if you don't read your book this month, it's okay because this challenge is for YOUR ENJOYMENT)

5) Please try to select for your pair ASAP as we all get excited and waiting is torture to some.


TIMELINE

Ooh, thanks for these picks.

Hello again. For this month, I'm picking The Girl in the Green Silk Gown (Ghost Roads #2) by Seanan McGuire and Facing West (Forever Wilde, #1) by Lucy Lennox , and from our shared books, I went with Battle Royale by Koushun Takami , because I adored the book, and I loved the movies (even the second one which everybody thinks sucks). Hopefully you enjoy them. ^_^

Kathy,
The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros made me cry like a baby. My husband walked by me and just hugged me. Then shook his head like I was a lunatic. LOL.
Definitely a five star.
The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes was disappointing though. It was underdeveloped and frankly boring.

I see you picked romances dealing with “Letters”. Thanks 🥰
