Nominate A Book for the Month of April


Mocha Girls Read members it’s that time to pick a new book for the month of April.  The theme for April’s book nominations will be…Poetry! (A book of Poems.) 

*Note:  If you are nominating a book in a series then only Book #1 is allowed.  And all nominations should be published in e-book and physical form.*

Nominations are from 3/9/14 – 3/15/14

For selecting our book of the month Mocha Girls Read uses a democratic system for our monthly selections. What do I need to do? In the comments section below, tell us what you want to read next (author and title).  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 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 15, 2014 at midnight.  Voting will start the next day.

Let us know what you want to read next in the comment section below. You can also email your nominations to us at
