April Nominations are Open

It’s Nomination Time! Yes, it’s that time to nominate a book for the month for April.  The theme for the April’s book nominations will be…pre-1900’s Classic Romance.  Only fiction!  The book can be written during any time period (even now) but MUST be set in any time period before 1900.  I use the word classic loosely!  Basically no erotica!

Mocha Girls Read uses the democratic system for monthly book selections. What do I need to do? In the comments section below, tell us what you want to read next.  (Must fit the theme) How many books can I nominate? Just pick 1 title off your wish list. Then what? We will put the list of nominations up for everyone to vote on.  Once the voting is over the winner will be selected as the book for April. What if there is a tie? We will put the two books to a head to head competition. The two books will be re-posted and everyone will be able to vote again but only in a 48 hour window of time. When do the nominations start and end? The nominations start today and will close on March 18, 2012 at midnight.  Voting will start the next day.

Take out your list ladies and let us know what you want to read next. You can also email your nominations to us at mochagirl@email.com  If you need some ideas on A pre-1900’s Classic Romance, here are some suggestions. Click the book covers to read a synopsis and the reviews of the books.

    Outlander By Diana Gabaldon

    Claire Randall is leading a double life. She has a husband in one century, and a lover in another…

    In 1945, Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon–when she innocently touches a boulder in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of our Lord…1743.

    Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire’s destiny in soon inextricably intertwined with Clan MacKenzie and the forbidden Castle Leoch. She is catapulted without warning into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life …and shatter her heart. For here, James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a passion so fierce and a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire…and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

    I loved this series, the books are very long but worth while.
