Here is the nominations thread for July's Book of the Month and Group Buddy!

If you're looking for any ideas...
-You can nominate any CF book you've had your heart set on that follows the guidelines
-You can nominate a book by the Author's of the Month for July, which is Tessa Afshar (we did read Land of Silence last year, so that one is no eligible).
-You can nominate one that will work for the monthly challenge for June, which is historical fiction (find Cheryl's full description of it here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/....

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 May 15.

Nominations as of May 15:
1. In the Field of Grace by Tessa Afshar
2. The Innkeeper's Daughter by Michelle Griep
3. An Elegant Façade by Kristi Ann Hunter
4. Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar
5. Land of My Heart by Tracie Peterson
6. The Promise of Dawn by Lauraine Snelling
7. The Writing Desk by Rachel Hauck
8. The Solitary Envoy by T. Davis Bunn

I'll nominate Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar

Natalie (creativecountry0407gmailcom) | 288 comments @Beth: The Group Read shelf shows Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar as being read, but there is no date next to it. However, it does say that ou shelved it in 2013. Can you please clarify this?

Natalie, I'm not seeing it on any of the group read shelves. I believe the ones we've read by this author are Harvest of Gold (Harvest of Rubies, #2) by Tessa Afshar (2014) and Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar (2017 group buddy).

Natalie (creativecountry0407gmailcom) | 288 comments @Beth: Thanks. I supposed you were trying to make you shelved most of her books that were available at the time.

Filling up my Kindle with more books than I'll be able to read... but I don't mind that problem. :)

I nominate: Land of My Heart (Heirs of Montana, #1) by Tracie Peterson
Land of My Heart is book one in the Heirs of Montana series by Tracie Peterson, which is a series I'm trying to read this year.

I'm the same way. I have around 2800 on my Kindle. At my age, I'll never read them all:)

I'm feeling the same way at age 30 too. :D

Christine, I am not. It was a clever joke by our Loraine. PhD = Piled High & Deep.


message 23: by Christine (new)

Christine | 434 comments Oh dear, too funny :)!

Carolyn | 218 comments I love PhD too

Carolyn | 218 comments for July, I think this is historical and time period 1909, so suggesting
The Promise of Dawn (Under Northern Skies #1) by Lauraine Snelling the search box in the books read is confusing; so don't know if it has been read or not.
