It's time for everyone to nominate a book for our January 2019 group read.

BUT - our format is changing for 2019!

There will be twelve tasks - a different one each month - open for nomination to fit that task.

For January's read we are looking for books with the word MURDER in the title.
So, nominate a crime/mystery/thriller/suspense book to cover January's task, and our 2019 group reads will be under way!

This thread will be open until 10th December, then nominations will go to the vote.

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

Sorry Owl - that's #10 in the series :( A brilliant read though :)

Krystal (krystallee6363) I have 'kill' and 'death' and 'die' on my shelves but no murder! So I'll wait to vote on everyone else's nominations for this one!

Lee that one isn't due for publication until the 13th March (I thought of it myself as I have it) so we wouldn't be able to have it for a January read as people wouldn't be able to access it. Sorry!

Sor..."


Yes, I wondered about that, Brenda! Wasn't sure if it could be read as a stand alone. It's fine, I just thought I'd throw it out there nevertheless, knowing it didn't fit the criteria. Just checking to see if your awake! LOL!
I have a different vote for a nominated book in mind anyway! 😊
