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
The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
The Goblin Emperor by Katherin Addison
The Martian by Andy Weir
The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon
No Place to Hide by Glenn Greenwald
Memoir & Autobiography
Life, Animated by Ron Suskind
History & Biography
The Good Spy by Kai Bird
Flash Boys by Michael Lewis
Delancey by Molly Wizenberg
The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh
Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
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.
