Okay so per the suggestions here
, I'm thinking that since there are 6 of us, we could do it where we each take a turn picking the books to vote on for the month, and then the other 6 months we pick a theme and everyone makes suggestions for the voting list. We can amend this as we go along, but I thought I'd get the ball rolling for this month and we can see where it takes us...?
Also, for discussion: I was thinking that after we pick the book, I'll make a "Book discussion post" and you can either discuss the book in the comments and/or write up a review on your blog or journal and link it. Does that sound good?
Anyway, the theme I am going with is Historical fiction with LGBT characters
. I haven't read any of these but just picked some off this list
that sounded good, so here's hoping.( Before voting, here are book synopses and links to reviews )
Now for the poll...
Finally, since we are more than a week into January, should this be for January/February combined? Or should we put the pedal to the metal and move ahead as planned, picking another book next month? (Also, who wants to go next?)
