May Nominations are Open

It’s Nomination Time!

It’s that time to nominate a book for the month for May.  The theme for May’s book nominations will be…Crime Time!  Only fiction!  The book can be written during any time period but must be a crime, mystery type of book.  A “Who Done It!”

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.  (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 May. 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 April 15, 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  If you need some ideas on Crime Time! book, here are some suggestions. Click the book covers to read a synopsis and the reviews of the books.
