FEBRUARY 2020 NOMINATIONS ARE OPEN
Every single month we nominate books based on the theme of the month to help promote diversity in our yearly reading. Yep, we are Mocha Girls and diverse reading is what we do.
We read EVERYTHING!
The theme for Febraury’s book nominations will be…
2nd Place February Book of the Month
To nominate a book it must:
- Must be listed below only!
Nominations are from 1/6/2020 until 1/13/2020
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 please). 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 January 13, 2020, at 10:00 pm. Voting will start the next day.
Let us know what you want to read next in the comment section below.
