Please read the rules for nominating BEFORE you create your post!! And Check our bookshelves to be sure you are not nominating something we have already read as a group!

We will have two catagories this month:
Cat1- Regular Fiction/Non-Fiction
Cat2- Halloween Theme (scary/horror)


Only ONE nomination per person.
If you nominate a book for catagory 1, you CANNOT nominate a book for catagory 2, and visa versa.

Please be sure to post the title, author, and the catagory it belongs to.

If your post does not have those three things, it will not be counted.

Are you ready?

I will accept nominations through Friday evening. If we get tons of nominations, I may pull the plug on it a little early, so get them in as soon as you can!

Once I close nominations I will create the polls and let you know when it is time to vote!

Hit us with your best noms!

An American remake (film) is coming out in October. The original book and Swedish film adaptation were both quite good.

Chloe Moretz! I had no idea. She's starring in a lot of good things lately. Looks like I need to get a jump on reading this book before the new movie comes out.

Tabatha... I love your enthusiasm, but I think you skipped over the part in the rules for nominations where it states ONE nomination per member.

I need you to decide which one you would like to nominate most, and then delete your other entries. Otherwise none will be counted.

Thanks so much!

Keep the nominations coming guys. Be sure you are checking our group shelf before you nominate so we do not list a book the group has already read.

Thanks! Looking good so far!

Sorry to continue this in the nomination thread, but the American version is going to murder this book.

Undoubtedly. Americans don't have the cojones to make a film as disturbing as the original version.


message 33: by Kaion (new)

Kaion (kaionvin) I dunno. I certainly enjoyed the original Let the Right One In, but thought the pacing was rather too lax in many parts, and the school bullies lacking in nuance. It could be improved (I'm not betting that it *will* be).
