Please read the rules for nominating BEFORE you create your post!! And check our bookshelves to be sure you are not nominating something we have already read as a group!


The categories for July and August are:


July = "Historical Fiction" theme

August = Books written by female authors

If you nominate the book, and the book is chosen as a group read, you agree to lead the discussion for that month! Don't worry, it's not hard, and we'll love you all the more for it!

Please do not nominate a book more than once. A book can only be voted on once, so multiple nominations within this thread are not counted.

Only ONE nomination per month per person.


Please be sure to post the title, author, and the month you are nominating it for.

Ideally, you can type it as follows -
August - Room - Emma Donoghue

If your post does not have those three things, it will not be counted.

Are you ready?

I'll accept nominations through the 11th. If we get tons of nominations, I may pull the plug on it a little early, so get them in as soon as you can!

Once I close nominations I will create the polls and let you know when it is time to vote!

Hit us with your best noms!

**Important note: At no time is it acceptable for an author to nominate one of his/her own books for the monthly group read. Likewise, it is not acceptable to "push" nominations or votes within this group. "A nomination for a nomination" is also not acceptable. If I suspect a push, or inappropriate actions have taken place within the group read nominations or votes, I reserve the right to deem those nominations or votes as ineligible.

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) Here are my nominations:

HISTORICAL FICTION: Under Fishbone Clouds by Sam Meekings

FEMALE AUTHOR: Isabel Allende / The Japanese Lover


NEVER MIND ... after leading the discussions in both May and June, I think I'll take a rest for a while. But if anyone wants to "borrow" these titles, feel free...

Well, i left nominations open to see if anyone else wanted to add to it before we got the polls ready... it's kind of light this summer!

Polls are open, and will close on June 20th. Go vote in the books you most want to read along with us in July and August!
