It’s time for round two!
We’ve tallied more than 1.2 million of your votes from the Opening Round of the Goodreads Choice Awards and sifted through more than 19,000 write-in nominations. Now, your top five write-in candidates in each of the 20 award categories are represented in this Semifinal Round.
Who garnered enough write-in votes to make it into the competition? In the Horror category, it’s a King family affair as Joe Hill’s Strange Weather joins his father and brother’s co-written book Sleeping Beauties. Meanwhile, in Romance, author Penny Reid has two different series now represented in the category.
This is no small matter! Your write-ins represent some serious competition. For example, 2015’s Fiction winner, Go Set a Watchman, was a write-in nominee. And last year, actress Anna Kendrick‘s Scrappy Little Nobody placed second in the Humor category.
This Semifinal Round lasts until Sunday, November 12; your votes now determine the finalists. Share your picks on social media with the hashtag #GoodreadsChoice to help your books break through to the next round!
