Guidelines for this challenge
1. Sign up ahead of time so we can create pairs

3. You choose 3 books from your partner's shelf for your partner to read. Let your partner know why you pick those books for him/her.
4. Your partner picks three books from your shelf for you to read. You don't have to read all 3, one should be enough for you to complete this challenge.

I hope you find at least one really, really good read among these three. Happy reading! :o)


message 36: by ☆☆Hannah☆☆, The Book Junkie (new)

☆☆Hannah☆☆ | 7258 comments My partner is Mandiann and I choose:

1.) Wildefire (Wildefire, #1) by Karsten Knight because I've also been wanting to read this.

2.) The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, #1) by Rick Riordan because this book is AMAZING!

3.) My Blood Approves (My Blood Approves, #1) by Amanda Hocking because it should be a quick read.


message 37: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments Hello Esther!!

I'm your partner!
I went through your favorites shelf before I picked, hoping to find a winner :)

1. These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1) by Amie Kaufman
so I chose this one, not because I loved it, but because I think you will. Your previous sci-fi romance-ish books have very high ratings so I think you will love this one!

2. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
I'm choosing this one because it's a classic and it's really great. I couldn't tell, based on your previous reads, if you would like it - but I hope you do if you pick it!

3. Code Name Verity (Code Name Verity, #1) by Elizabeth Wein
so, I'm picking this one because *I* loved it. I didn't see any historic type stories in your favorites so I'm not sure what you'll think of this one - but I loved the story and so I hope you will too!

I hope whichever one you pick is a winner!!

Marissa (all-about-angels) | 26 comments ★Nicole★ wrote: "I'm in! → My Shelf"

Hiya,Nicole !

These are the books I choose from your shelf (:

1. Doon (Doon, #1) by Carey Corp because it sounds interesting and I love fantasy so yea xD

2. Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater because everyone loves it ! And I've been wanting to read this since ages ! <3

3. Leviathan (Leviathan, #1) by Scott Westerfeld BECAUSE SCOTT WESTERFELD IS AWESOME !


message 39: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine Lake | 249 comments My partner is Allison and my picks for her (it was so hard to only pick 3) are:

1. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver This book is so amazing. It's incredibly emotional and so well written it's almost like your involved in the entire plot of the book. (It might make you cry so beware).

2. Just Listen by Sarah Dessen Another great book by Sarah Dessen. It does not fall short of the pure greatness she has written. It is one of my favorites so I hope you enjoy it if you decide to read it.

3. Just One Day (Just One Day, #1) by Gayle Forman This book has a certain simplicity that makes it incredibly easy to feel what the character feels which is good and bad. But the reviews are very accurate meaning the book really is AMAZING!


message 40: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Latshaw Trinity! Thanks for the great picks! Mine for you are...

1. The Hallowed Ones (The Hallowed Ones, #1) by Laura Bickle because I picked it up at the library last week and will also be reading it!

2. Bitter End by Jennifer Brown because it's also on my TBR list and I loved her novel Hate List

3. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne because every one needs a good cry sometimes when they read.


message 41: by Leah (new)

Leah | 2667 comments My partner is Bea, and I choose:
Of Poseidon (The Syrena Legacy, #1) by Anna Banks because I want to read this book too.
City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6) by Cassandra Clare because this is the last book in the series.
If We Kiss (If We Kiss, #1) by Rachel Vail because I like the cover.


message 42: by Allison (new)

Allison Urban My partner was Jasmine. This was difficult because I'd only read one book off of your pick me a winner list:

1) Paper Towns I read this one. It was a really quick, fun read. And the movies coming out next year, so you've gotta read it!

The next two are just by cover and synopsis:

2) Ten Tiny Breaths

3) Truth or Dare

2.Flicker because it looks like you like this kind of book

3.Freedom Road because it looks interesting and the cover is cool

Thanks, Azhelle! I'm about to look through and pick for you, and I think I'll try to read all 3 of these, but if I cant, I choose:

1. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman - because Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors, and this book definitely deserves a read!

2. I Hunt Killers (Jasper Dent, #1) by Barry Lyga - because I've been meaning to read this one too, and I've heard great things about it.
