Hello friends! I wanted to discuss the Goodreads Choice Award nominees but also I guess I haven’t read that many good books this year? Why haven’t I read 99% of these “best books of the year”? Since today’s Top 5 Tuesday (hosted by Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads) topic is a freebie, I decided to combine both of these ideas!
This is one of the nominees for the Young Adult Fiction category, and one that I bought last month! The fact that this features a Native American main character in a mystery that also discusses colonization is all I needed to know to buy this one. I’m excited that it’s in the final round!
This is a nominee in the Mystery/Thriller category! It’s not so much the concept that interests me (although someone who has face blindness going on a mysterious vacation with his wife isn’t a bad one by any means) but rather the fact that this particular domestic thriller has high ratings from some of my most trusted Goodread friends!
All’s Well is a nominee in the Horror category and follows a woman who has a chronic illness that has prevented her from chasing her theater dreams and has instead meant she’s directing a Shakespeare play she doesn’t want to direct. At least, that’s the case until she drinks a mysterious golden liquid that takes her pain away…
This Young Adult Fantasy/Science-Fiction nominee needs absolutely no caption. I’m terrified to find out what’s going on with Roma and Juliette.
Holly Jackson’s last book in her trilogy is another nominee for Young Adult Fiction. I can’t wait to see what happens to Pip and Ravi but please just let them have a happy ending. Please.
So that’s it! Tell me your favorite Goodreads Choice Award Nominee or one on your TBR!
