Nominations are now open for July 2017!

Kelly Caldwell, Melanie Dobson, Jan Drexler, Beverly Lewis, Adina Senft, and Suzanne Fisher Woods are exempt from nomination as we've already read one of their books this year, although we may make exceptions for novella collections that include one of these authors. If you're not sure if your book is eligible for nomination, please leave a comment and one of the moderators will get back to you!

Rules:
1. Any Amish-themed novel is eligible.
2. One nomination per person.
3. If two people nominate the same book, each person's vote counts. So the book will feature twice in the list to give each vote an equal chance.
4. Nominations run until the 14th of the month, with the winner announced on the 15th.
5. The winning book is chosen using Random.org to make it completely fair.
6. Please don't nominate a book we have already read. You can see our list of previous group reads here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... or look at the group read's bookshelf here: https://www.goodreads.com/group/books... (it includes the Christian group read as well).
7. Only nominate the first book in a series UNLESS we have already read #1 (see above link). In this case, #2 is then eligible for nomination!

Nominate away!!

#1 -- Katie's Choice (Clover Ridge, #2) by Amy Lillard -- Natalie

Who else would like to throw a nomination into the ring? We've got a couple of days left.

Carolyn V Hearse and Buggy (An Amish Mystery, #1) by Laura Bradford is suggested for nomination, by me, Carolyn; as I briefly checked list and didn't see much of this author and being a mystery versus love story.

Thank you ladies for the nominations. All of the choices look good.

Our July good read is... #1 -- Katie's Choice!

Thanks for the nomination Natalie!

Donna | 26 comments Great. I just looked and I already have this book on my Kindle so it must have been one I wanted to read. Great choice.

Carolyn V I guess I haven't read the first book of this July choice; can it be read alone?

It does mention characters from the previous novel, and how they fit into the family, but it's not the continuation of a story. I think it could be read as a stand-alone, but maybe someone else who has also read them both can also chime in with their opinion?
