Dear book lovers– Take a deep breath, drink some coffee, and maybe do a little mediation. The opening round of the 2015 Goodreads Choice Awards is about to give you some anxiety. Because with so many excellent books nominated, how are you supposed to pick just one in each category?!
The massively popular, fan-voted book awards are back for another year of tough decisions. In our beloved YA categories, things are looking tougher than ever!
Example A: The Young Adult Fiction category has so many good books, deciding between them will crush our soul.
Example B: You may rip all of your hair out trying to choose between the fantastical titles in the Young Adult Fantasy/Sci-fi category.
If that weren’t enough, there are not one or two but FIVE deserving Young Adult authors in the Debut Goodreads Author race:
- An Ember In The Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
- My Heart And Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
- Simon And The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
So get ready to stare, agonize, and eventually pick your favorite! Maybe it will get easier as the categories are narrowed down?
