Buddy Read

February Buddy Read Discussion
Duration: 01 February 2015 - 28 February 2015



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

Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1) by Sarah J. Maas -- Start with the prequel --> The Assassin's Blade (Throne of Glass, #0.1-0.5) by Sarah J. Maas

The Prequel is REALLY REALLY GOOD and explains a lot about the MC!

Hi Kat would you class Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells as chick lit

or The Scandal At Bletchley by Jack Treby as a thriller

@ Belinda: Yay, sounds like a plan!

@ Emma: Wanna join us for Heretic (Templar Chronicles, #1) by Joseph Nassise ? For the rest, are you up for reading all of them? :D Or we could save some for March. (I'm definitely reading Prince Lestat (The Vampire Chronicles #11) by Anne Rice in Feb, the others I could hold off on if five BRs is too much.)
