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

You can nominate any author you want!

Nominations will be open until the 10th of July.

*** 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 author or why you want to read the author.

I nominate 2 South African authors :)

Monique Snyman - I have never read a book by Monique, but I really want to read Muti Nation, which comes out this month.

Cat Hellisen - I loved When the Sea Is Rising Red and want to read Beastkeeper.

Mareli Thalwitzer | 163 comments I've never heard of her (*hide eyes shamefully behind hand*), but yup - she does seem interesting and I'll read her work.

V.E. Schwab is an author I also still need to get into. Have you guys read A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1) by V.E. Schwab ?

I've been meaning to read that for one of my challenges.

Sounds like a plan! Maybe it even wins in the poll :)
