Member are requested to nominate one book and second others' nomination. If we get too many nominations, seconded books and first nominations will be given preference. If your nomination wins, you will be expected to read the book and lead the discussion.
Nominate in following comments :)

*Only 5 books will be put for voting on the polls.*

I nominate We Have Always Lived in the Castle.
A short and gothic novel. Novella, actually.

@Manasa, I have already read The Girl on the Train. Didn't like it.

You can nominate any book but don't nominate books written by you/relatives/friends etc etc. Promotion is not allowed :P

2. We have always lived in the castle (looks promising)
3. Dead poet society

I am really sorry I wasn't about to add some nominations as there can be only 5 nominations. I have added all the seconded nominations. If your nominations wins, you win be expected to participate in the discussion by leading the discussion.
If your nominate doesn't win, you can nominate next month or BR with other interested members in the appropriate thread.
Here's the link to the poll : https://www.goodreads.com/poll/show/1...
