Now that our read for January 2016 has been decided, it's time for everyone to nominate a book for our February read.

Old or new - as long as it's Crime/Mystery/Thriller or Suspense!

This thread will be open until 15th December, then our nominations will go to the vote:) Good luck and have fun!

Authors and publishers, please don't nominate your own work!

Peter Stankovic | 109 comments Brenda, you may be right about the mixed reviews of "The Girl in the Spider's Web" but I generally like to make up my own mind. Stieg Larsson is a hard act to follow.

That's right, and it's a shame people have to "use" someone else's name for their own gain (IMHO)...

I hope you enjoy it when you get to it:)

Are any of them in the genres of this group Diana? I'm afraid if not, you'll need to nominate something along the lines of the group:)

Absolutely, Phrynne. I reviewed it, but couldn't give it a star rating as I couldn't decide between a 2 or a 5.

Don't you hate books like that:)


message 26: by Christine (new)

Christine (clt04) | 43 comments Well, actually, I kind of like them. It's fun to see which side everyone falls on. Plus they tend to generate a LOT of discussion! (-:
