January Voting Post




How it works:
We're making a few changes for the new year!

We're going to vote for two themes. The two options with the most votes will be the choices for January. We'll also be adding a separate poll for male or female authors each month. Some people suggested keeping vague options to cross off some books from their list when they might be burned out on the other themes, so this way there will always be a third option! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the mods or comment in our suggestion post.

December Sign Ups



Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US/who celebrate! My apologies that this is late. It's officially time to sign up for December! Buddy assignments will be posted on the 3rd. You'll have until the 7th to choose books for your partners.

There was a three-way tie this month, so the themes for December will be:
THRILLER // NONFICTION // MOVIE OR TV ADAPTATION
You must choose books with one or a combination of these genres and themes for your December buddy. If you think your buddy might have a problem picking from your TBR pile, please mention that in your comment.

Mod note: I'm curious on how everyone would feel about changing up some of the themes? I know we did this a while back, but maybe removing some of the themes that are never picked or adding more. As an example, the thriller genre contains horror, but would you prefer horror being its own theme? Is everyone comfortable with the themes we have now, or do you have a preference to changing them? No criticism or input is negative, don't be shy!
