Joel (deliriumtrigger) | 312 comments Hi guys, it's that time again. We had a very slow discussion in January, which was very disappointing, and I'd like to see things pick back up again for February.

As with always, here are the rules:

1) One vote per person - either a new book nomination, or "seconding" a book
2) Once a book gets a nomination and a "second", it is in the poll
3) Once five books are seconded, the thread will be closed and voting will begin
4) No self-promotion will be tolerated - if we find suspicious activity such as a pile of people signing up just to vote for your book, it will be automatically DQ'd.

Thanks everyone!

Joel (deliriumtrigger) | 312 comments I'm going to nominate the brilliant Scourge Of The Betrayer by Jeff Salyards. It's gritty, dark and an absolute blast.

message 3: by Tom (new)

Tom Wright | 33 comments I nominate The Rook by Daniel O'Malley. Urban fantasy. Hilarious. Must-read.

message 4: by Matt (new)

Matt Hageman I'll nominate the same book I've been wanting to read for awhile The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Looks Amazing.

message 5: by Mark (new)

Mark Lawrence (marklawrence) | 34 comments I'll second Scourge of the Betrayer - I didn't think it was brilliant but it had good things going for it.

message 6: by Marie (new)

Marie (frankweiler) | 9 comments I'll second The Rook because I've been meaning to read the whole thing for years.

message 7: by Dusty (new)

Dusty Wallace I'll nominate The Worm Ouroboros by E.R. Edison. It's old school.

message 8: by Connor (new)

Connor McCarty I'd like to nominate Malice by John Gwynne I haven't actually read it yet but have heard wonderful things and this is a good way to make myself read it finally.

message 9: by Chloe (new)

Chloe | 4 comments I'll second Malice. I bought it a while ago and still mean to read it.
