Every month we nominate a Author (2 if you can't decide) we would like to read the next month. We then vote on a poll and the winning Author becomes our Author of the month!

You can then read any book by this Author and share your experience in a thread with others.

Nominations will last till the 10th of July!

I nominate Charles Dickens

I nominate Joe Hill

Stephen Kings son. I have never read any of his books but I have been meaning to for ages. I think it could be quite interesting.

They say Stephen King is the Charles Dickens of our generation. If Charles Dickens son wrote books we would read them wouldn't we? ;D lol

Lauren Smith I didn't know Joe Hill was Stephen King's son! I have a book by him - Heart-Shaped Box, I think it's called.

I didn't even know he had a son. I would be interested in reading a book by him.

Claudia (claudiavstoomanybooks) | 1779 comments I made my mom read Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill. She said it was too predictable, and nowhere near as good as King. Maybe his next books where better, I won't know.

I nominate Virginia Woolf.

Lauren Smith Woolf - very ambitious :) Don't think I'm up for that at the moment though.
