Hi everyone!

So I know all of us have been busy with our lives but I really miss BOTM so I wanted to take charge of BOTM and buddy reads for the group. I will have everything up on what is happening in terms of buddy read. I think it's a bit too late into the month of May to have a BOTM but for June we can start suggesting.

Here you can suggest a book you'd like to read for the BOTM readalong (+ discussion) of June :)

- The theme/genre for this month will be "LGBTQIA+". The book you suggest has to be a book has to have representation of LGBTQIA :)
- You can suggest one book.
- The book can be the first book of a series or a standalone.
- This thread will close the 26th of May, so you have a week to suggest books and then you have three days to vote on the poll.
- A poll will be created the 26th of May, including 6 of your suggested books with the most recommendations and the highest average ratings on GoodReads.
- The poll will close the 29th of May and the BOTM June will be announced :)

Books suggested until now:

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy

(If you suggest the same book that someone else already mentioned, it has a better chance of being on the poll!)

I would like to read They both die at the end as well, I once started when I wasn't in the mood and I never got around to finishing it!

Yay!! If it turns out, no one suggests anything then by popular vote one book will win so no poll necessary.


message 7: by Bec (new)

Bec (_becandbooks) | 473 comments AH I completely missed this thread and there is only one day left! (Can I suggest that an email is sent to the group when these threads/polls go up?)

I vote for The Miseducation of Cameron Post because I REALLY wanna read this book and it should be a hella good discussion. I've already read They Both Die at the End so I will just join for discussion if it gets chosen.

Oh I’m so sorry Becca! I will send an email next time once I figure out how to do that! Those books will definitely be added
