Nominations are closed - here is the poll to vote: https://www.goodreads.com/poll/show/1...


Hello, everyone! I'm trying to get a head-start on updates, so here is the nominations thread for October!

We're going back to our themed reads for October, which are Suspense Reads! Nominations can be in any genre (contemporary, historical, etc.), so long as it can be considered a suspense read.

PLEASE REVIEW THESE GUIDELINES:
-Please do not nominate a book we've already read as a group. You will be asked for a different nomination if you do. Find our shelves here: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books....
-Remember that a book must be out for 6 months or more to be eligible for nominations and voting
-Try not to nominate an author that we've read that year already
-If it is a book in a series that is not the first book, make sure you know that it can be read as a standalone and doesn't require the previous books being read to understand and enjoy.
-Please note that there may be more reasons that a book is not a good fit for nominations or group members as a whole, whether it be availability, cost, accessibility, etc. The moderators reserve the right to make these decision. Thank you for your understanding! :)

Nominations will be open through the 15th of the month, then for the remainder of the month, the voting poll will be open.

Nominations as of August 10:
1. Midnight on the Mississippi by Mary Ellis
2. Rancher Under Fire by Vickie McDonough
3. A Spy's Devotion by Melanie Dickerson
4. Distant Echoes by Colleen Coble
5. Against All Odds by Irene Hannon
6. Murder Simply Brewed by Vannetta Chapman
7. Cold Shot by Dani Pettrey

Hey, Carolyn, you may not have seen, but we are back with a theme this time - Suspense reads. I think your nomination is a non-fiction memoir type book.

Loraine, I can't tell from the summary - would this fall under Suspense? Thanks!"


Sorry not suspense. I'll nominate: Against All Odds (Heroes of Quantico, #1) by Irene Hannon

It had been on my to-read shelf for a long time, but I finally read it in July for the dream destination challenge. I enjoyed it.

Beth, since it appears that some people are not reading your initial post, perhaps you should add something like "-- Suspense Only" to the post title.

I think you could read it as a stand alone, but since I haven't read it, maybe I shouldn't say that. Could I just change my nomination? Murder Simply Brewed (Amish Village Mystery #1) by Vannetta Chapman . This is the first in a series. Sorry to be so confusing!

Jane | 113 comments Oh yay! I've got both of those on my Kindle, so hopefully will get a chance to read them in October. I vaguely remember "Cold Shot" takes place somewhere near my area of the world (Maryland/Chesapeake Bay area).
