Buddy Read

November Buddy Read Discussion
Duration: 01 November 2014 - 30 November 2014



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 November Sign Up Thread and post your book and your buddy.

Ekene Nduka am not getting your write ups


message 3: by Rebekah (new)

Rebekah Swaffer (whistlemytune) Hey everyone! This is my first challenge ever, so go easy on me. ;-)

I like fiction, generally romance or drama. I love books by Nicholas Sparks, but also books like The Help, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Secret Life of Bees, etc. If you like these types of books, let's get together.

FYI, I have two kids under 2, so I don't get loads of time to read, so I'm not up for a very long book!! =D

xx

Paris (pah13) | 4285 comments Kristin and I are going to start a buddy read of the Rylee Adamson series. The first book is Priceless (Rylee Adamson, #1) by Shannon Mayer . If anyone else is interested in joining us, let us know!


message 5: by Paris (new)

Paris (pah13) | 4285 comments Sadie, I'd be interested in reading Beautiful Oblivion (Beautiful, #3) by Jamie McGuire or Addicted to You (Addicted, #1) by Krista Ritchie or both with you.

ilovebakedgoods (Teresa) (ilovebakedgoods) I am participating in a few buddy reads for another group in November, so in the interest of becoming more active in this group, I am posting my planned November reads here. Any takers for any of these? (The dates are when my official buddy reads start in my other group but I can probably be flexible for the purpose of this buddy read)

How to Bake a Perfect Life by Barbara O'Neal - anytime     Isla and the Happily Ever After (Anna and the French Kiss, #3) by Stephanie Perkins - Nov. 7/8     The Cold Dish (Walt Longmire, #1) by Craig Johnson - Nov. 8     Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty - Nov. 9     Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts - Nov. 10     The Crossing Places (Ruth Galloway, #1) by Elly Griffiths - Nov. 12     1st to Die (Women's Murder Club, #1) by James Patterson - Nov. 14    Walden; or, Life in the Woods by Henry David Thoreau - unsure of my start date, maybe anytime

Also reading some books at the very end of the month but wasn't sure anyone would want to join up for those since I won't read them until so late. Either way, they are: The Bell Jar (Nov. 23); Cinder (Nov. 25)

Yay! The more the merrier! I read the prequel novella Bitter Sweet Love (The Dark Elements, #0.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout to this series and enjoyed the world. It should be an interesting series.

Vicci - I would buddy read Fish & Chips with you but would need to read it sooner than later since it's part of my October FWYS. Not sure if that works for you though!

Also, have been wanting to read Big Little Lies

message 24: by Ana (new)

Ana (inbees) Hi there, I'm still in a post-Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy hangover, so I'd love to find something similar to it, if anyone of you has any ideas. I'm always looking for books with great worldbuilding and well written characters.
Also I'm planning to read:
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2) by J.K. Rowling (for the first time) and Heliopolis by James Scudamore .
But generally speaking: I'm here even for some surprises and genres I don't usually read.
This is my first buddy read ever, so I'm extremely curious :)
