Hazel (hazelev93) Having trouble getting through your to read shelf? Can't decide what to read next? Would you like someone to choose a book for you to read? This is a monthly challenge where participants get paired up randomly and their partner picks a book for them to read. If this sounds like fun to you, welcome to this month's Pick It For Me challenge!

Sign ups end on the 24th. Partners will be assigned shortly thereafter. Book choices for your partners are to be given -on or before the 1st-. Please check back often during that time to be sure that you don't miss anything!

Guidelines
** Sign up below with your to-read shelf (or the shelf you prefer your picks to come from). Please do this so I will not have to guess which one.
* Please be sure that your profile is set to public, or that you friend your partner so that they can see your shelves.
- IF YOUR PROFILE IS NOT SET TO PUBLIC, PLEASE PROVIDE A LIST FOR YOUR PARTNER TO CHOOSE FROM

If you do not plan to participate or are unsure if you can pick a novel for your partner, PLEASE, PLEASE do not sign up. It is very difficult to re-pair individuals once we are underway.

After your partner selects a book for you, be sure and check back in each week or so to let us know your progress. Tell us if you like the book, love it or think it is just so-so.

Participants:

1. Ariel (msg 29) selects for Jessica (msg 33)

2. Carrie (msg 31) selects for Stephanie (msg 30)

3. Christine (msg 25) selects for Kat (msg 18)

4. Erina (msg 36) selects for Matilde (msg 24)

5. Heather (msg 19) selects for Kathy (msg 23)

6. Kelsi (msg 28) selects for Kaylee (msg 28)

7. Sam (msg 22) selects for Sara (msg 20)

and vice versa

Jessica, Ariel doesn't seem to have gotten back to us about your book pick so I have chosen ...

--"You by Caroline Kepnes"-- so you have a pick for the month! It is one of my top 5 favourite books, didn't care for the follow up quite as much, hope you like it as much as I did and don't get too creeped out.

I hope your book for next month is better! Suppose they can't all be masterpeices. I remember liking angels and demons but it's been a good few years and it's sort of a love it /hate it book by all accounts.
