It's time to pick out July books! We're going to have a series suggestion, a "single" suggestion, and a theme suggestion again.
Anyone can put one suggestion for each of the three categories. So that means you can suggest one book for series, one for "single", and one for the theme. We are going to be reading The Enchantress in July so don't suggest that book because we are already going to be reading it!

To suggest a book please put the title of the book and the author! And label what the book is a suggestion for (series, single, or theme).

The theme for this month is...Dystopian!

Also a little reminder to everyone. This is not where you vote. This is where you make suggestions for the poll. The poll will probably be up around mid June so that will be around June 20th.

The suggestions also can't be something we've already read and they have to be young adult because we are a young adult group! To see what we've read and haven't read go to the group bookshelf. If you are new I strongly suggest this!
