Goodreads Choice Reveals 2017 Nominees, Opens Voting

Declare your favorite books of 2017 with the Goodreads Choice Awards!

Round 1 of the Goodreads Choice Awards has begun!

The annual fan-favorite event lets readers award their favorite authors and novels loud and proud, regardless of what book critics say. The opening round features 15 nominees, which will be narrowed down to 10 nominees for the final round based on fan votes.

There are also some YA authors we love in non-YA categories:

  • Marissa Meyer‘s Wires and Nerve: Vol. 1, a graphic novel spinoff to The Lunar Chronicles starring Iko, is nominated for Best Graphic Novels & Comics
  • Jason ReynoldsLong Way Down is nominated for Best Poetry (even though the author himself has spoken about how poetry and verse are a bit different.)
  • Angie Thomas and Stephanie Garber are nominated for Best Debut Author for The Hate U Give and Caraval, respectively.

How do you possibly choose?! We’re thinking a spinning board and a dart will help us decide!

Round 1 voting ends at midnight on November 5th, so…
