One Nomination per person (2 if you really can't decide).

The book you nominate has to be themed "Historical fiction"

Nominations will be open until the 10th of June.

*** Can you host the discussion if your nomination is chosen? ***

To be a discussion Host you are agreeing to:
- read the book you nominated at the beginning of the month, if you haven't already read it.
- start the discussion in both the spoiler and spoiler-free threads by posting your thoughts and a few simple questions for readers to think/talk about
- inform the group if you're unable to host the discussion or will only be reading the book later in the month.

You may also offer to be the Host for someone else's nomination.

Authors and publishers may NOT nominate their own books for monthly discussions. Similarly, no one is permitted to rig the polls by inviting others or creating sockpuppets to join the group and vote for a book/author. Such votes will be disregarded and the book/author in question may be removed from the poll entirely.

Please tell us why you are nominating a certain book/author or why you want to read the book/author.

A Surfeit of Guns - love this series. Are you allowed to fall in love with a real knight character that was the cousin of Elizabeth I (probably her illegitimate half-brother)?

Jenine (_jenine) | 75 comments The Count of Monte Cristo - one of my favorite books by Dumas,
imagine escaping a prison that no one
has ever escaped from

I nominate: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah and Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah - This is very popular and it was a Goodreads Choice Awards winner. I want to know what it's all about.

Remarkable Creatures  by Tracy Chevalier - Chevalier is one of my go-tos for historical fiction.

The Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro - I hear great things about the movie and would like to read the book first!
