Seeking Read-along Buddies!

Are you looking to tackle your TBR in 2016? So am I! And I really, really need to read a lot of books. By the end of July, I will probably be moving again. I will be starting graduate school in September, and having less than six months before all of that, I need to read the books that I've bought or obtained in the past two years-- at least to make the move easier on me when the time comes. Once I read these books, I can pass them onto friends, send them home, etc. The one thing I don't want to do is just let them sit there because I'm too much of a book hoarder or optimist to let them go, and then have to decide what to do at the last minute. So, I've turned to read-alongs. Read-alongs are awesome because a.) extended discussions of books b.) they keep you on track for tackling your TBR and c.) reader relationships! d.) duh, actually reading. Without further ado, let me know if you have any of these books and would like to read them with me at any of the dates I'll mention.

*Already read with Josephine at Word Revel
*This is the only nonfiction title that I've featured.
Normally not open to nonfiction read-alongs but would love to discuss this
*This isn't my book; I forgot to take it out of the picture
Some of these I may end up finishing on my own anyway - I was about 60 pages into Shadowshaper and 100 pages into More Happy Than Not, and they were good--just haven't gotten back to them yet. Doesn't mean, though, that a read-along would be unwelcome. Some I've kept for sentimental reasons (the ARCs...), but I would like to read and pass onto someone else or buy a different copy, etc. Here's a tentative schedule so far.
April 4 - April 10 (I will be gone sometime in those two weeks, ~ April 2 - 5, but I can catch up); April 11 - April 17; April 18 - April 24; April 25 - May 1 (I will be gone ~April 28 - 30 but again I will catch up).... Pick one of these weeks or multiple weeks, pick how you'd like to read (all within one week or spread out over days/weeks), pick a book or multiple books. I'd love to read a book with you! Please! Otherwise, perhaps you could share your way of tackling your TBR?
