The past years winners are always eligible for nomination, however ask yourself do we want to read the same book twice in one year?

Only one nominations per member

As always feel free to second a nomination (only 1 second per member) and make comments about the nominated books. Remember to avoid Spoilers, any eligible nomination in this category is a past group read and has open discussion threads for spoilers.
