Hello! it's time to get some nominations going for September. For this month's theme, we are going to get ready for the most wonderful time of the year, Halloween. The book you nominate MUST have fall colors on the cover.(yellow, orange, brown, red, gold, etc. think of the trees turning colors). it doesn't matter which cover, but please link to the one that fits the description.

Books chosen for a group read within the past year will not be eligible and authors may not nominate their own work.

Please remember, books with multiple nominations are more likely to make it to the final poll.

Jamie Zaccaria | 161 comments I nominate Carpathia

Carpathia by Matt Forbeck

It's Titanic meets 30 Days of Night. When the survivors of the Titanic are picked up by the passenger steamship Carpathia, they thought their problems were over. But something's sleeping in the darkest recesses of the ship. Something old. Something hungry.

Definitely second this, and it was the first thing that jumped into my head. This is one of my all time favorite books. Though to be fair none of the copies I have of the book actually have that cover, lol. Not unless my kindle copy updated with that cover anyway. lol

Hi Laura,
adding book covers is simple. Just above the dialogue box is a link "add book/author". Click that, type in the book title (or author) you are looking for. At the bottom of that pop up, you're given the choice of link or cover. Choose one and click the book you want to link to. It'll then show up in the dialogue box.


Sarah-Grace (Azrael865) (sarah-grace) | 185 comments When using the Goodreads App I can't link anything, to add book links and covers I have to go through the full website.
