Readers' Favorite

November 10, 2012

GoodReads Choice Awards 2012

It's that time of year again when readers get to vote for their favorite books of 2012 at Goodreads. Actually today is the LAST DAY of voting for the opening round. In case you are still undecided I thought I would share a the books that I've read that have been nominated in each category.

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:

Paranormal Fantasy:

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!
