The Goodreads Choice Awards


They’re back! The Goodreads Popularity Contest Choice Awards finish their first round of voting very soon, where you’re supposed to vote for the most publicised best books of the year in a few different genres (with some genres being overrepresented, and others barely given attention). What’s sad is that some of the best books this year have only just been released (Baron!), so nobody has had time to notice them, let alone vote for them.

I have not read a single book in the romance category, though you can write another one in if you want. It seems a little pointless, considering how MANY books are published in the genre every year. I’ve noticed I’m not the only one upset some of the best books this year are nowhere to be seen in the nominations. Taking Fire, Marrying Winterborne, Baron and The Summer Bride are only a few of the books that need to be there ahead of many of the actual nominees. Some of the biggest names in the romance genre are nowhere to be seen, and some authors I’ve never heard of are. Is this a sign the New Adult/real adult romance division is splitting even more?

I’m going to take a guess and say something in the New Adult subgenre is going to win for romance.

If you want to vote – and you have a Goodreads account – you can do it HERE.
