187845402Mocha Girls Read members it’s that time to pick a new book for the month of August.  The theme for August’s book nominations will be…Member’s Choice. (Any book, any genre, anything you want.)

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 7/4/16 – 7/10/16

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 (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 of the 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 July 10, 2016 at 11:00pm. 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.
  • bianca watts

    Love frustration : A novel by R.M. Johnson

  • My recommendation is NATCHEZ BURNING by Greg Iles (one of my favorites from the past few years). The books listed in this post are truly a great selection. (BTW, I’m looking forward to meeting Sara Gruen next month at a regional book festival here in West Virginia).

  • Ursula Wright

    Black Betty by Walter Mosley …. It’s a part of the Easy Rawlings series.

    • Classy Green

      Ursula – I love Walter Mosley’s books. Good series

    • Latonya Whitehead

      Great choice…would love to read this one as well

    • Do you have another book you would like to nominate? We only do book #1 in a series. Would you like Devil in a Blue Dress?

      • Ursula Wright

        Devil in a Blue Dress is OK but not as good as Black Betty. I’m not sure if it’s the first one in the Easy Rawlins series so I’ll pass on a nomination for this month especially since there are so many good ones nominated. Thanks Alysia

        • Devil in a Blue Dress is Book #1 in the Easy Rawlings series.
          I’ll add it just in case. I haven’t read it and this would help me to get to it sooner than later. LOL!!!!

  • Classy Green

    Anybody’s Daughter by Pamela Samuels Young. It is a part of series, but it is a stand alone book. You will not feel like you need to read the previous book to understand the story. ***Fingers Crossed*** that you will allow this book.

    • Classy Green

      If not, The Book of Harlan by Bernice McFadden.

      • Latonya Whitehead

        Great choice..I want to read this one as well. On my tbr.

      • Mocha Girl Classy your nomination is in. Thanks. I took The Book of Harlan. 🙂

  • Jo’ie D. Taylor

    On Beauty by Zadie Smith

  • Aleta Morgan

    Of the ones that are suggestions, the synopsis for Beauty Queens sounded entertaining.

    • Mocha Girl Aleta. I read this one years ago and it was funny and a great read. If it’s not picked read it via audiobook. 🙂 Your nomination is in. Thanks

  • A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab

    • I started listening to the audiobook a couple months back and couldn’t get into it.

      • Classy Green

        I’m listening to it now and I have a hard time as well. It may be the narrator.

        • I may be but it may just be the story. I’ll try again at some point…maybe then I won’t have such a hard time since I know what to expect.

    • Your nomination is in Mocha Girl Tiffany. Thanks

  • Koko Lewis

    If Sons, Then Heirs: A Novel
    by Lorene Cary

  • Koko Lewis

    Queen Sugar
    by Natalie Baszile

  • Damali Griffin

    The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore’s

    • Classy Green

      I’ve heard great reviews on this book.

      • Damali Griffin

        It was an excellent read – a very impressive narrative of the internal emotional workings of women written by a man. Each female character has her own deep story that shapes who she is for herself and those she loves. I rated the book a 10 out of 10 points, as did most of the readers in my Atlanta, GA book club, The Imani Literary Group.

    • I loved this book. Great pick. Your nomination is in Mocha Girl Damali. Thanks

  • I nominate Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys.

  • Angelia Alia Lia

    The Colors of My Boudoir: Kendrick Patrice

  • Latonya Whitehead

    The Blackbirds..Eric Jerome dickey

    • Classy Green

      Great story. Will read again. I think it was a cloae second to James Baldwin’s book.

    • Thanks Mocha Girl Latonya. Your nomination is in.

  • candace

    Down Home Blues by Phyllis R. Dixon

    • Thanks Mocha Girl Candace, your nomination is in.

    • Classy Green

      I thought this description sounded so familiar. We met Phyllis Dixon at a Book Festival in Milwaukee Wisconsin a few weeks ago.

  • Deanna J

    The Gilded Years by Karin Tanabe

  • Sandra Rose

    The Turner House by Angela Flournoy

  • Jessica

    I Almost Forgot About You: A Novel by Terri McMillan
