It's time again to nominate books for our Group Read for February 2012. Since February brings Valentines day and LOVE we thought we would go with that theme...

Please nominate a book that has a heart or red on the cover. Here is a listopia list for suggestions

or

http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/90...

As in the past, here are the group guidelines:

1. Please make sure your nomination meets our monthly Genre: Hearts on the Cover (See list)
2. One nomination per person
3. Book must be available in both print and ebook form, and available worldwide.
4. If nominating a book in a series, the book must be the first book and not one in the middle.

Nominations start now! Happy Reading!

Wendy F (blessedwannab) | 2951 comments I'll start!

I'll take an easy pick, how about Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler.


Amy (amyrica) | 17 comments Many of those are YA books. The only one I've read is Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater and I really liked it! Yes, it's werewolves, but it's definitely NOT Twilight! I'd recommend it.

Wendy F (blessedwannab) | 2951 comments If you go down to the bottom, there are more adult books. Like One Pink Line by Dina Silver. Which is also available for free in e-form on Goodreads.

Shiver was pretty good though, so great nomination.


Terry Ziemba | 32 comments Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum There is the correct link/


Terry Ziemba | 32 comments Or the Red Tent by Anita Diamont. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant


Terry Ziemba | 32 comments Terry wrote: "Or the Red Tent by Anita Diamont.The Red Tent by Anita Diamant"

The Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diamant

I would love to read something I haven't read, that isn't bubblegum (bubblegum:books as Kardashians:television)


Janet (JustJanet) | 121 comments Despite it's controversial subject matter, I would like to nominate Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma


Sue Erickson | 673 comments The Red Tent is very good. Read that quite a few years ago.

this one sounds great to me!


Diane | 602 comments I liked The Red Tent, it's been about 8 years or so since I read it.


Shell Schroth (MsShell) | 397 comments I would like to nominate Forbidden (The Books of Mortals, #1) by Ted Dekker it's book one in a new series, and I actually quite liked it.. would love to hear others thoughts.


Shell Schroth (MsShell) | 397 comments ** there is a heart on the cover, I swear...**


Martha (Loser945) | 2 comments Red tent was a very good read. I am a preachers kid and I had to read the scripture over after I read the book. I wish we had more story telling about some woman bible people. I always hated that Noah's wife had no name but his sons had names.

I am a historical fiction freak, and I really enjoyed it. Not so much from a biblical standpoint. You don't see events from that time period from a woman's point of view too often.


Sue Erickson | 673 comments I was impressed at how all the women were so good to each other. Wish we could have that closeness in this day and age.


Lisa | 341 comments The above books look great and I'd like to throw in... Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran because it's on my TBR. I read Moran's The Heretic Queen and loved it :)


Susan | 53 comments How about Bet Me Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie? It has all the best things love, good food and humor.

I'd like to read both of those!

Sarah (Sweetredhead) | 29 comments My first plunge into the depths of the classics. I love reading this book and try to do so every few years. I am positive that like me you will read it and think about it differently every time according to what stage in life you are at. I nominate Wuthering Heights (Large Print) by Emily Brontë


Caroline Kimsey (CarolineKimsey) I adore Wuthering Heights.... I agree I read it every decade beginning at 15 and I always see it differently as my life paradigm evolves.

Leea | 1228 comments We have 12 books... I'll take 1 more and then we will close nominations and start voting :)

Thank you!


 Northern Light (NorrthernLight) | 157 comments I agree that Wuthering Heights is an amazing read with something new every time. I have visited Haworth where it was written and walked on the moors. Beautiful.


Sue Erickson | 673 comments Morag I had never heard of your name until Outlander. Like it very much indeed. Are you Scottish?

I am indeed!! I love my name as it's fairly unusual.

Janet (JustJanet) | 121 comments There is a Brit writer that I love, her name is Morag Joss and she won a CWA Silver Dagger Award for this bookHalf Broken Things Sorry, off topic.

Honestly I've never read a romance book before...unless you count the Outlander series as romance. I wouldn't know which book would be a good one. lol


message 30: by Leea, Escape Artist (new)

Leea | 1228 comments Well, several of the books nominated are not 'romance' they are historical fiction, mystery and young adult.

Nominations are now closed... I'll put the voting together.
