Peggy (pebbles84) | 15095 comments There was a clear winner this month: Books with fatal words (death, murder, kill, or words that have these words as their root) in the title.


Please go ahead and nominate a book that fits the theme.

If you don't want to nominate your own book, you can second someone else's nomination instead, and that will count as your own nomination, and that book will be entered an extra time in random.org - giving the book an additional chance to make the cut.

Nominations can be seconded multiple times by different people . If you second a nomination, please make clear that is what you are doing. E.g. If I nominate "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone", you need to state "I second Harry Potter and the Philosopher's stone".

A couple of points to consider when nominating:

- Please check the YLTO Group Book Shelf to ensure we haven't already read the book in the last 2 years before nominating it.

- In case of series, only the first book in a series is allowed, even if later books could be considered as stand-alone

- One nomination/seconding per person.


Only 5 books will be selected to be in the poll when it comes to voting.

Each of the chosen group read books will have a discussion leader assigned to help facilitate the discussion. The discussion leader will be the person who originally nominated the book, or someone who seconded their nomination if they do not wish to do it.

Nominations close January 18.

message 6: by Sarah, Moderator (new)

Sarah | 18188 comments I did a quick search of my books for these words and loads cropped up in the series titles but not in the actual titles. Other than books later in a series. I expected to have had loads to choose from!

I saw a documentary on this last year. It was really creepy and frightening. Once again so many good books nominated.

I'll second One Word Kill.


message 18: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 13611 comments I feel like this might be a bit of a daring nomination, but I'm planning to read Life Will Be the Death of Me: . . . and You Too! by Chelsea Handler for the theme, so I'll nominate that. :)


message 19: by Sarah, Moderator (new)

Sarah | 18188 comments Lots on non-fiction books this month!


message 20: by Jenn (new)

Jenn | 2196 comments Very interesting Sarah, and that is also the Feb theme for my RL book club lol


message 21: by Kristie, Moderator (new)

Kristie | 13611 comments It is interesting that there are so many nonfiction nominations for this theme. I have a bunch of books on my TBR that fit. A few of them I thought about nominating, but they seemed like they might be a bit graphic. I almost nominated a cozy, but I wasn't really in the mood for it.

Sandra (sanlema) | 9425 comments Sarah wrote: "Lots on non-fiction books this month!"

I guessed that mostly mysteries were going to be nominated, but I was wrong!


message 23: by Lilisa (new)

Lilisa | 2429 comments Cherie wrote: "Jayme wrote: "I'll nominate Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI [bookcover:Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI|..."

This one is great! I’ll second it too.


message 25: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15095 comments Sorry Saar, the words needs to be in the main title, not subtitle. Do you want to nominate something else?


Saar The Book owl | 1777 comments Oops, sorry, Peggy. Than I choose: The Colour of Bee Larkham’s Murder


message 27: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 15095 comments Perfect :)

I loved this book! I got it from the library originally, but then bought it in hardcopy form - and this year I plan on buying it on audio


message 30: by Margo (new)
