Remember, I will only cover the 12 categories in which I read and in which I actually voted: FICTION, MYSTERY & THRILLER, HISTORICAL FICTION, HUMOR, NONFICTION, MEMOIR & AUTOBIOGRAPHY, HISTORY & BIOGRAPHY, SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY, DEBUT GOODREADS AUTHOR, YOUNG ADULT FICTION, MIDDLE GRADE & CHILDREN'S, and PICTURE BOOKS.
Results to be posted December 1st!
I'll go with Lisa Genova's Inside the O'Briens.
Though I haven't read this one yet,
I have read and loved all her other books!
I imagine A Little Life will win it since I have seen so many absolutely love it as a favorite! And I can believe it might well deserve such an award from reviews I've read!
by David Lagercrantz was voted out.
make that Robert Galbraith's Career of Evil.
Why? Because I can't imagine this series not being excellent!
It's J.K. Rowling! Come on... :)
I suppose the Hawkins book will win. I remember I couldn't fathom all the pre-publication publicity the publisher pushed through the media for this one. I suppose they will win, though I disagree! :)
Category #3--Historical Fiction
Another favorite genre for me!
And a category in which the book I selected is still in the running...
The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah! YAY!!
I still plan to read Circling the Sun by Paula McLain,
A Desperate Fortune by Susanna Kearsley,
and In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume.
Also must post review of At the Water's Edge by Sara Gruen!
And don't forget the Little House Read-Along beginning January 2016!
Another category where my selection has actually survived to the finals! YAY again!
Jenny Lawson's Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things must be a hoot! I am still listening to
Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir
in the car and still loving it!
in there! YAY!!
H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald!
And, of course, I still want to read all the others I've listed before!
But especially Between the World and Me and Missoula!
Category #7--History & Biography
Have I mentioned the Little House Read-Along
beginning January 2016 yet?!?
You should join Bex of An Armchair by the Sea and me for this journey!
