The nominations thread for the January 2019 Fiction Read is now open, please suggest your book choices below.

Please remember that:
1. We do not allow self-promotion or self-published books.
2. All books need to be seconded by someone else in order to get to the voting stage and
3. Nominations must be readily available in as many formats as possible at a reasonable price.

This thread will remain open until the 8th December and then will be closed for voting.

It is a fresh start so no carry over from the last poll. Either nominate or second a book, not both.
