Jennifer, if the request is very broad, I try to suggest something with broad appeal and usually give them about three suggestions, then ask if they have favorite genres or topics to read.
Do any of our Riffle Advisors feel up for a 'irreverent and nerdy' request for recommendations? The request is the most recent one, from just this past Sunday. If someone is able to help, that would be awesome. I feel a bit too limited in this zone, with the examples offered, so thought I would send out the SOS! Thanks!!
sure, i can do this!
There's a recent RA request - from Tuesday - for help finding non-dystopian YA.
Anyone up for that challenge??
That it should be a challenge says something. How about Fantasy?

Did you want to take the request in the RA space, @Janine_Tabor? It hasn't been claimed yet.
(This type of request is a challenge for me because I don't read much YA, so am not terribly useful with requests in the genre.)
Oh ok, haven't checked there for a while!

That would be awesome!! Thank you so much, Janine!!
If anyone is able, there are 2 new RA requests that need attention.
One user is searching for urban fantasy w/ strong female leads and dystopias. The second user is searching for mysteries - interesting 'favourite books' provided, so perhaps not typical mysteries.
Thank you so much!!
Anyone? There are two requests from 31 May --
These aren't really my strongest areas for which to offer recommendations. It would be great if these two requestors could receive replies.
Thank you all so much!!
Hi everyone! Just curious if anyone still checks in with the recommendation requests? I certainly enjoyed participating, and it would be fun to keep it going.
I just answered two about a week ago. I’ve never gotten much feedback from anyone though
