Nominations for July’s Book of the Month: Latin Male Authors

 It’s that time to pick a new book of the month.

The theme for July’s book nominations will be…Latin Male Author (Any book, in any genre that was written by a Latin Male Author.)

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 6/5/17 – 6/11/17

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 June 11, 2017 at 11:00pm. Voting will start the next day.

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

Here are some suggestions.  Click the book covers to read or buy the books on Amazon.
