Goodreads Choice Awards 2023

by Donna Huber


It's that time of year again when everyone starts putting together their Best of Books lists. I've already seen a few and as the year draws to an end I'm sure there will be plenty more - including our lists here at Girl Who Reads. But now is the time to cast your vote in the Goodreads Choice Awards. Round 1 voting is open until November 26. Based on popularity (number of reviews, number of people who've added the book to their shelf, etc.) they have come up with 300 nominees in 15 categories. If you have been participating in the Goodreads Choice Awards for a few years you will notice this year the Children's, Graphic Novels, and Middle Grades categories have been eliminated, but they have added Romantacy. If you are having trouble narrowing down your choice, we are highlighting the books we've reviewed that have been nominated.

The Ways of Water by Teresa H. Janssen ~ A Review

by Susan Roberts


"My story is twined, like rope, with that of my kin.  The first strand began to fray when Mama, a city girl from Austin, fell in love with a Louisiana railroad man.  As Papa ran the steam locomotives across the great deserts of the West, Mama followed him.  Steam engines always follow water, and we did too."
(p 3)

Murder Checks Out by Victoria Gilbert ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


Returning to her role as an amateur detective is the last thing library director Amy Muir wants. She’s already buried under an avalanche of responsibilities, including sharing the directorship of the local public library, parenting her holiday-obsessed five-year-old twins, and helping her choreographer husband, Richard, present The Nutcracker as part of the town’s festivities. With her frosty mother-in-law, Fiona, visiting for the holidays, Amy definitely has enough on her Christmas cookie plate.
