The theme for August is Member’s Choice! (Anything you want!).  Yep!  That’s right, August is member’s (you Mocha Girls) choice.

Any book.  Any genre.  Any time period.  Fiction or non-fiction.  Anything!

Nominations are from 7/8/13 – 7/14/13

For selecting our book of the month Mocha Girls Read uses a democratic system for monthly selections. What do I need to do? In the comments section below, tell us what you want to read next.  How many books can I nominate? Just pick 1 title off your TBR (to be read) 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 August. 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 July 14, 2013 at midnight.  Voting will start the next day.

Just another girl who loves to read and then read some more and wants to meet others like me.
  • KILLING SARAI by J.A. Redmerski. Her THE EDGE OF NEVER is what got me hooked on New Adult. But this book seems to be much different and far more intense.

    Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present

    Writen by: Harriet A. Washington

    • Shannon @ Reading Has Purpose

      Medical Apartheid is up next on my TBR list! It’s been on my radar for the past 5 yrs or so. Right now I’m trying to get through a book that hasn’t lived up to expectations. Maybe I’ll sit down tonight and knock it out so I can move on to the next book.

    • Thanks Ms. Lorna. Your nomination is in!

  • Heather

    Everyone is Hanging Out Without Me by Mindy Kaling

  • Marcée M. Turner

    A House Divided by Kimberla Lawson Roby.

  • Nya

    Inferno by Dan Brown

  • Stacy-Deanne

    MAJOR JAZZ by Niyah Moore. It’s a historical, black romance which takes place during the Jazz Age. It’s a beautifully-written book and the best book I’ve read in a long time. I was blown away by it.

  • LHS28

    Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

  • Michelle Martin

    Sugar by Bernice L. McFadden I haven’t read this book but the synopsis definitely has it on my to-read list.

    • Shannon @ Reading Has Purpose

      I have “They Tell Me of a Home” by Daniel Black which I think is his debut novel? I want to get to that before the end of the year. And hopefully I will like it enought to read the sequel. I don’t think I’ve ever read a sequel, by any author.

    • Thanks Michelle! Your nomination is in.

  • MyLuvMaya

    Nowhere Is A Place by Bernice McFadden

  • Joi Chatman

    Fiend by Peter Stenson

  • Karen Macon

    INDIGO by Beverly Jenkins is an action-packed, sit on the edge of your seat, romantically inclined historical fiction that should be recommended to Oprah to read and make a movie! TRY JUST ONE of her books and you will be hooked.

    • Thanks Karen! Your nomination is in! And this one has been on my TBR list since it came out. LOL!

  • Laurie

    Is everyone hanging out without me? By Mindy Kaling

  • Dana Ivory

    A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton

  • Angela Rambo

    I nominate Isabel Allende’s Island Beneath the Sea
