Call for Book Club Nominees

All right then. Time to take on more nominees for the next reading round. I’m so excited!  Unless it doesn’t seem workable, I’d like to do the next discussion on March 2nd. Since Magic Study was more of a traditional style fantasy, I’d like for us to look at something different this time. So how about we choose an Urban Fantasy or Paranormal Romance?

I’m going to nominate a brand new book by a newcomer, Kerry Schafer called Between.  I have not read it yet, but it looks really different.  And Carol Berg (whom I idolize) blurbed it.  Here’s the description:

Vivian Maylor can’t sleep. Maybe it’s because she just broke up with her boyfriend and moved to a new town, or it could be the stress of her new job at the hospital. But perhaps it’s because her dreams have started to bleed through into her waking hours.

All of her life Vivian has rejected her mother’s insane ramblings about Dreamworlds for concrete science and fact, until an emergency room patient ranting about dragons spontaneously combusts before her eyes—forcing Viv to consider the idea that her visions of mythical beasts might be real.

And when a chance encounter leads her to a man she knows only from her dreams, Vivian finds herself falling into a world that seems strange and familiar all at once—a world where the line between dream and reality is hard to determine, and hard to control…

Remember when nominating to include a description if possible, and a link to the book so people can see more.

We’ll do nominations until Weds at 5 my time, then we’ll take a vote. Because I liked how it worked last time, I want to do two votes, where we narrow it to the top three choices, and then from there, vote again for the final choice.
