Default Call for Nominations: Sweet Read Apr-Jun 2015

Sweet Reads for 2015: Each quarter we will hold nominations and vote for one book to be our 'Sweet Read' for the quarter. Once we have a book selected, there will be two threads in our Sweet Reads forum, one for general chit chat about the book and reading progress, but no spoilers and another for book discussion, spoilers allowed.

Post your nomination(s) for our next Sweet Read of 2015 here. If someone has already nominated your choice, go ahead and 'second' their nomination, just in case we get lots of nominations and I have to narrow the field for the vote

Nominations close at the end of the day Monday, Mar. 23rd.

Voting will be Mar. 25-30.

LOL Since I nominated the clunker that we read first quarter, I'm sitting out nominations this time! I'll be happy to vote when the choices are listed though!

Has everybody already read The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern? If not, I'll throw it in the ring since it is next on my toead list.

I've read both Night Circus and Station Eleven, they're both awesome.

Heddy your suggestion looks good, I'll add it to my TBR pile regardless

Good to know Keely and Nikki! I'm usually too cheap to buy hardcover but I've really been wanting to read this!

Bumping this. I'm going to pull Night Circus out of the running, since so many have already read it.

We could use a few more nominations so we have a good variety to vote on.
