One Nomination per person (2 if you really can't decide).

The book you nominate has to be an "Historical mystery"

Nominations will be open until the 10th of March.

*** Can you host the discussion if your nomination is chosen? ***

To be a discussion Host you are agreeing to:
- read the book you nominated at the beginning of the month, if you haven't already read it.
- start the discussion in both the spoiler and spoiler-free threads by posting your thoughts and a few simple questions for readers to think/talk about
- inform the group if you're unable to host the discussion or will only be reading the book later in the month.

You may also offer to be the Host for someone else's nomination.

Authors and publishers may NOT nominate their own books for monthly discussions. Similarly, no one is permitted to rig the polls by inviting others or creating sockpuppets to join the group and vote for a book/author. Such votes will be disregarded and the book/author in question may be removed from the poll entirely.

Please tell us why you are nominating a certain book/author or why you want to read the book/author.

I nominate: Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters

Crocodile on the Sandbank (Amelia Peabody #1) by Elizabeth Peters

Apparently Peters writing style is similar to Gail Carriger's so I would love to see if there is any truth in that.

I checked my e-reader for ideas to nominate and ended up reading A Famine of Horses in a day. Highly recommend it to anybody who is interested in Elizabethan history.

I nominate (will host):
Just One Damned Thing After Another which is a time travel historical mystery.

Sorry about that! Been away and I'm going away again, so I'll put them up today and let them run until the end of the month :nod:
