Nominations for October’s Book of the Month: It’s a Crime

HiRes copy 5

Mocha Girls Read ladies it’s that time to pick a book for the month of October.  The theme for October’s book nominations will be…It’s a Crime. (A fiction book in the crime, mystery, thriller genre.)

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 9/5/16 – 9/11/16

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 September 11, 2016 at 11:00pm. Voting will start the next day.

Here is some Scandal to get you in the mood.  ***SPOILER*** This is from Season 5 Episode 21 and if you don’t want to know what happens don’t watch.

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