La Tonya  Jordan | 705 comments The theme for August 2018 nominations has to do with the letter "L". We will read a book where the title begins with the letter reference above. Do not select books where a word such as the, an, a, or any other word comes before this letter. I look forward to seeing the nominations.


Rules
1. One book per person
2. Poll will be set up when we reach 6 valid nominations
3. Book should follow the theme
4. Try to explain why you are choosing the book (optional)

Enjoy Reading,
La Tonya

I read this last year and the book covers how Lincoln made the decision to issue the Emancipation Proclamation.

This translates into The invisible girl; therefore, it is disqualified for not meeting this month's theme. Please nominate another book. Enjoy Reading. La Tonya

Nat K (natnoir) "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott.

I remember reading this a lifetime ago, and parts of it always stayed in my mind.

Bookworm Lies by TM Logan
Gripping and action packed psych thriller that was hard to put down.

Mary | 2 comments Hi La Tonya,
Interesting concept!
My nomination is 'Let Me Lie' by Claire Mackintosh.
I haven't read it but it's on my TBR list.
Her first book was a fantastic read,her second,while interesting,wasn't as captivating or as enthralling as her first.
Thank you for organising this group read.

Dale | 1 comments Okay, this may be cheating, but I have 2 suggestions, VERY different:

Les Miserables (Victor Hugo) - I'm sure we've all seen it on Broadway or in the movies but the book is the source
Let the Great World Spin (Colum McCann) - a more recent, very "American" story (written by an Irishman, natch)

Feel free to choose only one if those are the rules!
