We are asking all members to nominate books of any genre, which they wish to read that are set in the past i.e. covering the theme of History Is Upon Us.
Once all nominations are in, two polls will be added for you to vote on which books you wish to read for September's Book of the Month. However, if there are not enough books up for nomination, then only one pol will be created and the top two books will be our book's of the month.

You all have until 15th August to suggest a book of the month.

Note: Authors are not to nominate their own books and please do not repeat a book if it has been suggested already or if it has already been the book of the month previously. Thank you.

Karen (karenarrowood) | 167 comments Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys - recent past (WWII) Excellent book

I've been wanting to read The Other Boleyn Girl (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels, #9) by Philippa Gregory

I also heard the The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom is good...
