Halloween & Goodreads Choice Awards 2012

Happy Halloween! As you may have guessed from my background, it is one of my favorite times of the year. Today's post is all about my favorite treat, books!

If you love books as much as I do then chances are you love Goodreads as well. If not, quick, click on this link and check them out because you are seriously missing out! It is one of my favorite places, rating right up there with a great coffee shop. Right now the Goodreads Choice Awards are going on and you don't want to miss them! Here is a bit about it:

There are 15 Nominees each in 20 Categories. The categories are: Fiction, Mystery & Thriller, Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror, Romance, Memoir & Autobiography, History & Biography, Nonfiction, Food & Cookbooks, Humor, Graphic Novels & Comics, Poetry, Young Adult Fiction, Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction, Middle Grade & Children's Books, Picture Books, and Goodreads Author.

If you have a different favorite, you can write them in! I'm working hard to get Flight For Control by Karlene Petitt up in the Thriller Catagory, the amazing Transcend by Christine Fonseca in the Young Adult Fiction catagory, and hoping that just maybe To Ride A Puca might get a few write in votes for the Young Adult Fantasy & Sci-Fi catagory. There will be three rounds of voting, the first of which began yesterday. Details:

Opening Round: October 30 – November 11 
Voting open to 15 official nominees and write-in votes.

Semifinal Round: November 12 – November 18 
The top 5 write-in votes became official nominees, bringing the total to 20 books in each category. Additional write-ins no longer accepted.

Final Round: November 19 – November 27 
The field narrows to the top 10 books in each category, and members have one last chance to vote!

Support your favorite authors or books and vote before November 11th! Have a wonderful, safe Halloween. I hope it is filled with many wonderful treats.

  2. What a great thing for Goodreads to do. They are an excellent resource for writers and readers—I love your characterization of Goodreads as 'right up there with a great coffee shop.' Perfect. These awards look awesome. I'm headed over, thanks!

  3. Happy Halloween Heather!
    I am a member of Good Reads but do not know how to navigate. Maybe when you come for a visit in December (hint) that you can teach me.
    Another great shout!
