Yes, Amber is correct. Amy did you want to renominate? I can understand the confusion. The new "movie version" cover of the book was released in 2014, but Flynn actually pub. in 2012 :)

Wendy Hall (wendymayhall) | 70 comments Rachel, sorry, bear with me, to clarify, your original message said "released in 2014", but then a few messages up you said "2013"??? So, if the book was "published" in 2014, does that count? Sorry I'm so confused :)

Hi! Yes the book should be published in 2014.

I guess I should of clarified the differences between published and released. Books can be re-released, especially ones with movie adaptions coming out (i.e. Gone Girl). Please nominate books that are published in 2014 :)

Someone already nominated that one. We don't second things in this group all the noms go to the poll. So you could pick something else if you wanted to. :)
