Here is the nominations thread for August'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 August, which is Ann H. Gabhart.
-You can nominate one that will work for the monthly challenge for August, which is "vacation reading" - books set in locations you'd like to travel to (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 3 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 June 15.

Nominations as of June 7:
1. The Outsider by Ann H. Gabhart
2. The Scent of Lilacs by Ann H. Gabhart
3. No Less Days by Amanda G. Stevens
4. The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson

I'll nominate The Scent of Lilacs (The Heart of Hollyhill #1) by Ann H. Gabhart , as it's author/month and one that has been in my Kindle forever. I also recently (this year, I believe) found a paperback copy, so I've got options for how to read it.

Carolyn, while this sounds like a really good book (might have to add it to my TBR), I believe this is general market, rather than Christian fiction. The publisher is Kensington typically publishes general market fiction. I'm not familiar with the author or the story to vouch that it has a faith element to it, so I'm hesitant to add it to the nominations.

Is there something else that you would like to nominate? I'm happy to suggest some publishers of CF! :)

Chris - No Less Days is awesome. When you finish, you will be unhappy that you have to wait for Book 2.
