Kristie | 4822 comments Hi everyone! Time to nominate the book you would like to read in June!

Rules:
➙ Please nominate only ONE book.
➙ Books do not need to be seconded.
➙ Do not nominate books that have already been read as a BOTM.
➙ Do not nominate books that are the second or later in a series.
➙ Do not use this thread for author self-promotion.
➙ No erotica.

Additional tips -
Please use a book link, if possible. If it's not possible, please include the author's name. I want to make sure I include the correct books! You can add a synopsis from the books Goodread's page, if you like, but it is not necessary.

Directions to add a book link:
This can only be done when online and not when using an app.

When typing in the text box, on top of the box there is a link that says "add book/author". Click on that and a new box will appear. Type your book name in the space provided and click on "search". When you see your book, click the "add" button to the right of it.

To add a link that just has the book name, you can click "link" at the bottom of the "add book/author" box. The link is the automatic setting. To add a book cover, click on "cover" at the bo

Kristie | 4822 comments I nominate My Name is Rapunzel. I've been wanting to read this one for a while now!

My Name is Rapunzel by K.C. Hilton

Blurb:
My tale has been told again and again, and I’ve heard each one. Except for my hair, I barely recognize the pitiful renditions. Muddled versions, crafted to entertain laughing children…but the children wouldn’t have laughed if they’d known the real story. It wasn't their fault. They didn't know the truth. Nobody did.

My name is Rapunzel. I will tell you my story. I will tell you the truth.

Ashley (morethanfairytales) | 115 comments I nominate The Intern's Handbook: A Thriller by Shane Kuhn.

The Intern's Handbook A Thriller by Shane Kuhn

Blurb excerpt: "Interns are invisible. That’s the mantra behind HR, Inc., an elite "placement agency" that doubles as a network of assassins-for-hire, taking down high-profile executives who wouldn't be able to remember an intern’s name if their lives depended on it."

Natalie - I always update when I have the chance. However, I can only update the list from my laptop and that is not always available. I can not update when I am at work, school, or internship, so there will be several hours between updates. It is updated now.
