Nominations for October’s Book of the Month: Monster Mash

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

The theme for October’s book nominations will be…Monster Mash (Any paranormal, ghost, vampire, werewolves, shapeshifter 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 9/4/17 – 9/10/17

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 September 10, 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.

        Lol. Well let me know if you do. Ill read it with you and we can discuss.

        • Stefanie Burnham

          I’m in too if you want to discuss. I keep reading reviews that this book gave folks nightmares. Sounds like my kind of horror.

          • Shanika Sanders

            Right. Its sounds good!

    • Mocha Girl Shanika, this book is not available in e-book form. Would you like to nominate another book?

      • Shanika Sanders

        Oh ok. Nevermind. Ill sit this one out. Thanks for asking.

      • Stefanie Burnham

        Alysia, I have this book on my Kindle. mobi. It has all of the idiosyncrasies that the paper form has. I was at the Meetup on Sunday showing other members that I had it. One of the members mentioned that the book had some strange paging. I couldn’t find it at first. Lo and behold I got home and I see all the weirdness. I will gladly send you camera shots of the book. The book exist on .epub and pdf form.

      • Stefanie Burnham

        I see what you mean the e-book is hardly accessible online. I was lucky to have gotten it when I did. MZD was doing lots of beta testing hoping to bring it to the e-book format. The weird formatting doesn’t do well on the e-book. This book should definitely be read in it’s hard cover form to get the fullness of how queer it is. SMH.
