The winners of the 12th Annual Goodreads Choice Awards has just been announced and we are super excited about the results. This are the only major book awards decided by readers, therefore it reflects the favorites among the 5,674,480 votes casted. Congratulations to the best books of the year!
Much like the 2020 presidential election, the votes were close in some categories and included a few upsets. Matt Haig's "The Midnight Library" won with just five votes over Fredrik Backman's "Anxious People," and nine-time winner Stephen King and his novel "If It Bleeds" was bested in horror by Silvia Moreno-Garcia's "Mexican Gothic." - USA Today
How many have you read and which ones you're planning to read soon?
"A promising trend surfaced amongst this year’s winners. The 2020 Goodreads Choice Award winners feature eight authors of color, making up 40% of the winning authors. This provides a sharp contrast to the 2019 Goodreads Choice Award winners, in which only one author of color’s book won (Ali Wong’s Dear Girls in the Humor category). - Book Riot
