Even if my TBR list is getting bigger day by day, I still try to stay up to date with what my fellow bloggers are writing or with what is trending on Goodreads or other book sites J
So I took a look on the Choice Awards for 2016, held by Goodreads as usual. I was extremely happy to see that for the Romance section the winner is one of my favorite authors: Colleen Hoover with her book “It Ends with Us”. I love her work, I adore her characters even though I must admit I don’t own all her books (yet). Not all are available in paperback in my country, so I’ve started looking online to order them. Anyways, back to THE WINNERS.
For the Romance area, “It Ends with Us” has managed to gather 59,546 votes and it’s the story of a young woman who falls in love with a good guy but she actually still loves her ex. Check the synopsis here. The book is quite amazing, as usual when it comes to Colleen Hoover! Second place is Robert Their’s “Storm and Silence” – book one of the Storm and Silence series. I haven’t read this one, but its action is based in 19th century London, so it’s right up my alley (new book on my TBR – yey!) – Check out more about it here. Third place is Nora Roberts with “the Obsession”. I love Nora Roberts just as much as Colleen Hoover. Both these authors have determined this blog’s creation, even though I haven’t posted any reviews for their stories – I feel I’m not yet ready to emit an opinion on them, as I simply like them too much!
Note to self: write an article on how I discovered their books.
Some other winners:
- Best Fantasy: “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – Parts One and Two”, 128,543 votes. I was expecting that actually. Even if I am not a big fan of Harry Potter, the series is fabulous indeed.
- Best YA Fiction: “Salt to the Sea” by Ruta Sepetys with 29,122 votes. Jennifer L. Armentrout came second with her novel “The Problem with Forever”.
- Best YA Fantasy & Science Fiction: “A Court of Mist and Fury” by Sarah J. Maas. She also owns third place with her book “Empire of Storms”. I did not have the chance to read her books yet, but this year she’s been getting a lot of promotion and many bloggers have spoken really nice of her books. I’ll definitely give them a try! There are so many great authors in this category, I don’t even know which one to mention…
- Best Debut Goodreads Author: “Rebel of the Sands” by Alwyn Hamilton, with 24,445 votes. Published in March 2016, it has over 3,000 reviews and a score of 3.9 stars. Books 2 and 3 are expected this year and in 2018.
There are a lot of amazing authors nominated – check all results on Goodreads here. I will definitely be more involved in this year’s awards; this means an even bigger TBR. Anyways, congratulations to all winners and authors nominated and THANK YOU for these great books that keep us up most nights!
