February Nominations Are Open!

wheatleyPORT75The theme for February is Historical Black Fiction.  Any book that fits the theme is up for nomination.

1/7/13 – 1/13/13

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 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 February. 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 January 13, 2013 at midnight.  Voting will start the next day.

Let us know what you want to read next. You can also email your nominations to us at mochagirl@email.com.

  • The Long Song by Andrea Levy

  • Dana Bell

    The Book of Night Women – Marlon James

  • Kanita McDonald

    Wow! We have a super list of book nominations going so far. I have each of the suggestions above and nominations below on my ever growing “To Read” bookshelf and I’m anxiously looking forward to diving into each on them! But, while I’m tempted to throw out a few more titles that have not been mentioned for consideration, I will nominate a recent and popular one: The Twelve Tribes of Hattie and it’s telling of a story of the children of the Great Migration! Hoping it will be as good as it’s reviews; however, I don’t believe we can go wrong with whichever title is voted for our February read! : )

    • Kanita I have the same exact thoughts as you on this one. Your nomination is in and I can’t wait to see the results.
