Time to Vote! Announcing the Nominees of the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards
Your vote counts! We need your help selecting the best books of the year during the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards, our eighth-annual event where readers select the best-of-the-best books across 20 categories.
As you've rated your favorite books of 2016, we've been paying attention. We've analyzed the data from the hundreds of millions of books added, rated, and reviewed this year to determine which books made the cut in our Opening Round. These 300 initial nominees have a combined average rating of 4.11 stars and have been added on Goodreads more than 5.3 million times.
Starting today, you can choose among 15 top-rated books in each of the categories including Fiction, Historical Fiction, Mystery & Thriller, Young Adult Fiction, Romance, Science Fiction, Nonfiction, and Debut Goodreads Author. If you don't see your favorite in a category, we also accept write-in votes during this round only! There are three rounds of voting. The Opening Round lasts until November 6; these results determine which books make it into the Semifinals. We also know how passionate you are about your favorites, so there are plenty of ways to share your picks on social media as well—#GoodreadsChoice.

Semifinal Round (November 8 until November 13) Similar to the opening round, you can vote for one book in each category. There are 20 nominees, the 15 from the previous round and the top five write-ins for each category.
