It's time to nominate for May book club pick. A book you would think the group would enjoy.
One nomination per person.
Link to the title using the add book/author option.

Check here to make sure that we haven't already read the book :
https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

No nomination of your own book. Have fun!!


***** It's a non-King book. The King books are in chronological order now so it's already picked out for the month of March.

I read this when I was a freshman in college, and it was creepy to me. The movie with Sally Field freaked me out.

I haven't read the book or seen the movie adaptations yet, so it's awesome to hear that it's just as creepy as I was hoping!!!

Jen_Ken a.k.a....Jenny from the block | 725 comments Since May has Memorial Day as a holiday; I feel that we should read a book about Audie Leon Murphy who was one of the most decorated American combat soldiers of World War II. He received every military combat award for valor available from the U.S. Army, as well as French and Belgian awards for heroism. Wikipedia

Hi Eric, I find I can only do it when I'm on the desktop version of the site on my phone. It then gives the option at the top right of the comment box.

I've had two people write to me to tell me they can't post on this thread. I have no idea why that is, since there's no way I can block people on my end from one thread. So if you are having problems feel free to email me the book you want to nominate and I'll write it here for you. Please also contact goodreads and tell them you are having issues posting.

Steffen has nominated:C. J. TUDOR, The Taking of Annie Thorne

I did not realize that the app won't let you link up. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I mainly use my laptop and not the app when using goodreads so I didn't know.

Your welcome! The app won’t allow you to reply to a message either, just a “new comment”. 🤷🏻‍♂️
Once Marlise instructed me to use the desktop version I was able to edit by nomination and added the book cover.

Scott Feighner | 9 comments Ironweed by William Kennedy.
This book won the Pulitizer Prize for fiction in 1984.
It is the 3rd book in Kennedy's Albany Cycle. As with the other books in the cycle, it is a standalone book, and not having read any of the previous books will not hinder the enjoyment of this novel.

Ironweed is set during the Great Depression and tells the story of Francis Phelan, an alcoholic vagrant originally from Albany, New York, who left his family after accidentally killing his infant son while he may have been drunk.
For the most part, the story takes place during one of Francis's frequent blackouts. The narrative is complicated by Phelan's hallucinations of the three people, other than his son, whom he killed in the past.
