It's Time to Choose the Best Books of 2020!
Let your voice be heard! We need your help selecting the best books of the year during the 2020 Goodreads Choice Awards, our 12th annual event where readers select the best-of-the-best books across 20 categories.
As you've rated your favorite books of 2020, we've been paying attention. We've analyzed the data from the hundreds of millions of books rated, reviewed, and added to Want to Read shelves this year to determine which books made the cut in our Opening Round.
These 300 initial nominees have a combined average rating of 4.15 stars and have been added on Goodreads more than 13.5 million times.
Last year, bookworms cast more than 4.6 million votes in the only major book awards decided by readers. Starting today, you can pick your favorite titles from 2020!
- Opening Round (October 27 to November 8): Go to the Goodreads Choice Awards page to start voting! Take note: Only books published in the U.S. between November 16, 2019, and November 17, 2020, are eligible.
- Don't see your favorite book in a category? Make sure you write it in during the Opening Round! This is your only chance to add your favorites to the top 15 picks per category.
- Semifinal Round (November 10 to November 15): Here you'll choose a book from 20 nominees in each category. These books will be the 15 nominees from the Opening Round plus the top five write-ins.
- Final Round (November 17 to November 30): The finish line is in sight! Once the competition has been whittled down in the Semifinal Round, you'll choose one of the 10 top nominees in each category.
- The winners are announced on December 8.
