It's time for everyone to nominate a book for our July 2018 group read! Each month during 2018 we will have a different genre to nominate - for July, it's THRILLER

Please remember, every nomination must be by an Australian author.

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

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

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

Our Moderator choice for July is The Secret Vineyard by Loretta Hill The Secret Vineyard by Loretta Hill

This one is marked down as Historical/Literary Fiction so doesn't fit the genre requirement Boyko - sorry.

I'm sorry Alexandra, but only the last one is by an Aussie author :) To do cover pics is in the same place as you did the title - just at the bottom of the small page, click from "link" to "cover" :)

That would be my recommendation too Brenda but I think it is more a who-done-it that a Thriller exactly.

Stone Girl by Eleni Hale"


It's marked as YA and Contemporary Clare, but I think there's an element of suspense there. I'll confer, and we'll see :)
