Post your suggestions for July's BOTM here! The theme for July is "Independent Authors" to help celebrate Independence Day coming up next month! This thread is only to nominate books by Independent Authors" (any genre or book is welcomed)!



If you agree with someone else's selection, just say I second this selection and then link the book name.

If nominating a book in a series, only nominate the 1st book in the series (unless we've already group read the 1st book).

Vote for a book of a different book here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/9...


Voting poll will be put up at the end of June.
Thanks!!

Alicia (writeralicia) I nominate Moon Spell, by Samantha Young. It's YA paranormal romance, and I've been meaning to read it.

Hey Ŧáẅņá. Thanks for bringing this author to my attention! That particular book of hers doesn't interest me so much, but she's got others that I'm quite excited about. :)

I had that happen to me as well. I replied to Tawna's nomination of Replay, and it showed the wrong Replay book. (I deleted the cover from my reply, so you won't see it now.)

Think | 53 comments The Twenty (Barronlands Trilogy, #1) by Claudia Carozza This book is awesome.


message 28: by Barb (new)

Barb Mode I'd like to nominate the first book from the "Progenter" series (Progeneter: Mayans, the Skull and the Chimera of Immortality). Not only is it a great action book, but I see the author will give a free e-reader away to every 100th purchaser! So if you find you like the book, you could later buy copies for friends and relatives, and maybe win a free e-reader! Progeneter Mayans, the Skull & the Chimera of Immortality by Steve Bareham
