This is where you post a book you want us to read together. Once we have enough books nominated, I'll make a poll that you guys can vote on and then we'll begin our reading! Have fun!!!


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Does the book have to fall under a specific genre?


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

Um...how about The Selection?
I've been dying to read it and have it on hold at the library. The only issue is that six people have it on hold before me, so I'll probably be waiting a while:(

How about for our first group read it can be any genre? But after this we can actually do specific genre ones, thank you Ashlyn :)

message 24: by Sapir (new)

Sapir | 18 comments I would love to read anything dystopian, paranormal or teen romance... The Selection (The Selection, #1) by Kiera Cass looks good (this cover is BEAUTIFUL).


message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

I think it's lovely too:)
I'll just have to wait for...seven other people to read the book, because I've got it on hold at the library and I don't have the money to buy it. *Sigh.*

Thanks, guys! The nominations are appreciated


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

I don't think we should read a sequel, because a lot of us may not have read the first book.


message 31: by Grace, Head Moderator (new)

Grace (fictionaladventures) | 896 comments Mod
That is very true, Ashlyn


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

Savvy by Ingrid Law + The Fault in Our Stars by John Green .


message 33: by Grace, Head Moderator (new)

Grace (fictionaladventures) | 896 comments Mod
But it's ok to still have it in the poll because you'll only vote on the sequel if you've read the ones before it, right? So if it wins, then enough people have read the ones before.


message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

Yes, true.
