Mystery & Thrillers:
You can read my review here. I didn't really like this book and I hadn't read any of the other books nominated. Instead, I did a write-in vote for this book:
I want to re-read Shadow of Night (see my review). It was a dense read and I don't think I got everything the first time through. It is worthy of it's nomination.
Memoirs & Autobiographies:
I have just started reading memoirs and I loved The Watchmaker's Daughter (see my review), so I did another write in vote.
This has been the funniest book I've ever read (see my review). Seriously, laugh out loud funny. It do definitely deserves a nomination, so I wrote it in!
Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction:
Yes, another write-in vote for me. I hadn't read any of the nominated book and I so love this series. It would be great if it get in the next round. See my review.
Middle Grades & Children's:
This was a proxy vote. My niece really liked this book (see her review) and she's not old enough to vote. I did a write in vote for it.
There you have the books I reviewed that are nominated and the several write-in votes I did for this year. There are some really great books on the lists (there are several categories I didn't vote in because I don't read much, if any, in those genres). Remember TODAY is the LAST DAY to vote in the OPENING ROUND. In the next round the top 5 write in titles will be listed as official nominees. The semi-final round of voting begins Nov. 12.
Good Luck, Authors!
