Goodreads Choice Awards 2014 - Round One

Ah November! Autumn is here, the leaves are turning, the weather is perfect for staying at home and curling up with a good book or three. 

And the Goodreads Choice Awards are here! 

Announced on Monday, the Awards are one of the main reader-based book awards on the net. I won't go into the rules etc here, but I always enjoy participating, whether that be by voting or binge-reading as many of the nominated books as possible before the final round at the end of the month. 

Last year I encountered some great reads thanks to the Awards: The Lowland by Lahiri Jhumpa, One Summer: America 1927 by Bill Bryson and Night Film by Marisha Pessl to name a few.

Here are my current nominations in the various categories where I have read enough to be able to cast a vote: 


The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell

Mystery & Thriller

I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes

Historical Fiction

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd


The Goblin Emperor by Katherin Addison

Science Fiction

The Martian by Andy Weir


The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon


No Place to Hide by Glenn Greenwald

History & Biography

Delancey by Molly Wizenberg


The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh

Looking forward to Monday when the top 5 write-in votes are added to the whole! I'll update then to see whether my nominations change.
