Nominations are Open for April’s Book of the Month

Screen Shot 2016-03-05 at 9.13.56 AM

Mocha Girls Read members it’s that time to pick a new book for the month of April.  This month theme will be something new for us… Book to Movie (Any book that has been adapted or will be into a movie)  Since every movie out now started from a book let’s take a minute to see if the movie is as good as the book.

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 3/7/16 – 3/15/16

For selecting our book of the month Mocha Girls Read book club 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 (author and title) based on the monthly theme.  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 nominated books up for everyone to vote on.  Once the voting is over, the winner will be selected as the book for month. 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, 2015 at 11:00pm.  Voting will start the next day.

Let us know what you want to read next in the comment section below.
