Reading Blind

So recently, Malissa & I have discovered that we rather enjoy reading a book in which don't really remember the synopsis that well. You know, the ones that you remember thinking sounded really good, or an author that you know you've loved in the past, but can't recall what the book is actually about? Yeah, those.

This led to a discussion and a decision. We're going in blind. 100% blind. We decided we would pick out a book for each other, wrap it up, and give it to the other to read. After carefully going through Malissa's Goodreads read and to-read shelves, along with her Amazon wish list, I made a decision. And the book is... well, I can't say. Yet. But here's what it will look like when she gets it. :)

Then, to further the fun, I used nearly an entire stack of Post-it notes...

We can't have her knowing what the title is because I didn't cover the Title Page, can we? ;) I even covered the spine, so she can't peek beneath the red cover. Not that I think she would try to cheat, but still.

I'm very curious to see what book she chose for me. I'll be reading it soon, I hope. I'm going to mail hers as soon as I find a box to send it in. :)


What about you? Do you prefer knowing more of what you're getting into or does it matter?



  1. I'm so excited about this! I should have yours very soon :)

    1. Me too! I need to mail yours... Imagine that. But I got a box, so there's that. ;)

  2. This sounds like so much fun Brandy! I hope you both end up enjoying your books! :)

    1. I hope so too. I've never read a complete 'mystery' book before like this, so it's an exciting thought. :)


Thank you so much for taking your time to share your thoughts! I try to respond to everyone. :)
