That's a good one. Okay how about Angels:??

Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick Halo (Halo, #1) by Alexandra Adornetto A Beautiful Dark (A Beautiful Dark, #1) by Jocelyn Davies Angelfire (Angelfire, #1) by Courtney Allison Moulton

What do you think???

message 4: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) I suggest Unearthly (Unearthly, #1) by Cynthia Hand for that list when its added to the poll.

I have another one: "Red." It would include any type of red on the cover--red lettering, red clothing, a whole red cover, the word "red" in the title, etc.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater The Girl in the Steel Corset (Steampunk Chronicles, #1) by Kady Cross Everneath (Everneath, #1) by Brodi Ashton Warm Bodies (Warm Bodies #1) by Isaac Marion Brightest Kind of Darkness (Brightest Kind of Darkness, #1) by P.T. Michelle Jerk, California by Jonathan Friesen

Kate (kaitlins16) So far we have a object on cover theme, a color theme, and a genre theme. It would be nice to have another genre theme or one that's different from all the rest.

Who has any ideas? We need one more theme for next the poll for April.

message 6: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) Okay, I've got a fourth theme suggestion: books told from guy's point of view. It can be alternating or completely male perspective; it can be first person or third person.

Intertwined (Intertwined, #1) by Gena Showalter Looking for Alaska by John Green What I Didn't Say by Keary Taylor Unwind (Unwind, #1) by Neal Shusterman Ship Breaker (Ship Breaker, #1) by Paolo Bacigalupi The Red Necklace (French Revolution, #1) by Sally Gardner Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle, #1) by Christopher Paolini

message 7: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) So now we need ideas for future polls.

There's a few theme possibilities (I just need books to go along with them):

Genres: contemporary, paranormal, historical fiction, realistic fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, dystopia

Sub-Genres: Vampires, Werewolves, Magic, Faeries, Ghosts, Mythology, Mixed paranormals, original paranormal (like shadowhunters or revenants), time travel.

Details/Themes inside book: prophecies, depression, apocalypse, forbidden love (or any other type of romance), bullying, family, music, road trip/travel.

Covers: Different colors (Blue, Yellow, Black/White), simple covers.

Other: books with less than 3,500 ratings, award winning books, New York Times Bestsellers.

These are all ideas, so when the time comes, we can choose some of these (or others) and come up with books for them.

Does anybody have any book suggestions for the possible themes I listed? Even one for a given theme would be helpful.

message 8: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Times twisted arrow is historical I believe and very good

message 9: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) That's okay. When we make the polls for the themed BOTMs, we will take the books that are a first in a series.

message 10: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) What is July's theme going to be?

What kinds of themes should be on our poll for July's theme?

message 11: by Kate (new)

Kate (kaitlins16) Mythology is this month's theme. We have to start planning for next month's theme.

Rora (ffyreflyy) | 64 comments I know we have some guys in the group. How much do they participate? Can't really see them loving any color dress theme...

message 13: by Rora (new)

Rora (ffyreflyy) | 64 comments Something summery? are there books that would support a beach theme?

or maybe road trips?
