Girls Just Reading (GJR) Challenge 2012

While Alice and I were discussing possible books for our 2012 List Challenge (post later this month), we decided there were too many books we wanted to read and we needed our own challenge. We threw the idea out to Jenn and voila...GJR Challenge was born. We each came up with a list of books to run by each other and then we agreed on 3 off of each our lists; so a total of 9 books for the year.

We plan on reading the book in one month and then doing a group review the following month. Giving us all a chance to read it at our own pace but with a set "deadline".

Feel free to join along with us if any of these books intrigue you.

The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides - TBR January, Reviewed in February
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern  - TBR in February, Reviewed in March
Joy For Beginners by Erica Baumeister - TBR in March, Reviewed in April

Can you guess who picked which books? :)
Thoughts? I think it is a nice variety of genres.

The first two are on my own TBR list. I read Graveminder for the R.I.P. challenge. I really enjoyed it. I look forward to reading your thoughts on it when you get to it.

I am new to your site.
Where do the discussions take place? Right here, in the comments?
I am currently reading The Dressmaker, and I have also read and loved The Night Circus.
