Now that our read for May has been decided, it's time for everyone to nominate a book for our June 2018 read.

We've changed the criteria for the monthly reads that we had for 2017. For our 2018 monthly reads we will do a different country per month. For June's read we are looking for books set in Antarctica

So - nominate a crime/mystery/thriller/suspense book set in Antarctica for our June read. True crime or cosy mysteries are included in this :)

NOTE: Only the beginning of a series (if a series) please :)

This thread will be open until 10th May, then our nominations will go to the vote:) Good luck and happy choosing!

Authors and publishers, please don't nominate your own work!

I second Ice Station. A ripper read from one of Australia's best thriller writers.

Tien (tiensblurb) | 134 comments Ice Station was definitely fun to read!


Lee at ReadWriteWish (leeatreadwritewish) | 190 comments I have already read it, but Out of the Iceby Ann Turner would be great for this category.

Out of the Ice by Ann Turner

Me too, Lee. I second your nomination!

Rachael | 3 comments I am not 100% sure whether this will fulfil the categories for (i) Antarctic - it is partly set in the Artic - nor (ii)crime/mystery as it is a moral dilemma but not sure that it is a crime! So that said please discount it if it doesn't fit but it is an interesting read The Curiosity by Stephen P. Kiernan

It certainly sounds different Rachael! But it's sci fi/fantasy so doesn't fit. But thanks for bringing it to the attention of fantasy lovers :)

It was interesting Brenda and although I read it a while ago I still think about the concepts.

I seem to be on a roll with things that don't quite "fit" as I have just realised that one of my books for the annual challenge doesn't fit the criteria either and I will need to swap it out (I used a book set in a country I hadn't visited; instead of the author coming from a country I hadn't visited) sigh!

Haha! Never mind - at least you got to read another book :)


message 20: by Alex (new)

Alex Cantone Never realised there were so many; but I remember one of dad's books from when I was small Ice Station Zebra by Alistair MacLean.
