Nominations for our February 2011 group read are now open (you've got a while to nominate - we are always a bit ahead of ourselves to give time to get hold of the books). Please post your nominations and I'll update this list as we get nominations! If you could give us your top to-read nomination of the month! (Can you believe I'm talking about 2011!!!!)

Please nominate first in the series or stand-a-lone books. (feel free to renominate books which have been before BUT not books we have already featured as group reads - you could try nominating the next book in the series, see below)

If we've already had book 1 as a group read feel free to nominate book 2 and so on!

Timescale:
Nominate up to 15 December
Poll 15 to 31 December
January for you to get hold of the book(s)
1st February - group read starts

The two most voted for books will be our February group reads. You can read either or both.

We will also have a series continuation group read in February - ie book 2 of a series we have done book 1 of etc.


A poll will be posted about 15 December to run until 31 December, which will then give everyone a month to get hold of the book(s).

If your choice does not come top you can either renominate for March or see if any other members want to do a buddy read with you.

Amber (ambermay_5) | 176 comments Looks like Original Sin by Allison Brennan won't make the January list, can I re-nominate it please?

Theresa (theresamcole) | 14 comments Would love to nominate Danann Frost Falls from Grace by Joanne Valiukas

She's self published and a shining star in the indie author realm! This book is my new all time favorite! An Angel + A Vamp = INSANE AWESOMENESS!

I just recently finished this book. I liked it much better than BDB, so can really recommend it.

For a nomination...how about

We'll have them both then! Partly because of the above, and partly because I never posted a poll?!?!?

Mariya (cr6zym0nkeyiz) haha. I noticed that and was gonna ask you but you will sick, but it would be great to have both. Though I will be running down bookstore everyday this week just to see if they have Shadowfever in. I NEED THAT BOOK!
