It’s time for the Final Round of the 2012 Goodreads Choice Awards! Readers cast more than 846,000 votes during the Opening and Semifinal Rounds, and now just 10 books remain in each of 20 categories. A hearty congratulations to the authors who are now Goodreads Choice Finalists!
The polls will remain open until midnight (PST) on November 27, so vote now. And these races are still tight! Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl is among the high-stakes whodunits in the finals for Best Mystery & Thriller. A biography of Queen Elizabeth faces stiff competition from profiles of Thomas Jefferson, David Foster Wallace, and others in Best History & Biography. In Best Middle Grade & Children’s Books, actor-turned-debut author Chris Colfer’s story of twins lost in a magic kingdom is challenging double-nominee Rick Riordan’s two mythology-packed adventures. Will 2011 winner Veronica Roth defend her title in Best Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction? Will write-in favorite J.K. Rowling begin to dominate in Best Fiction? View all the finalists and help decide!
This is your third and final chance to vote for the best books of 2012! Remember, the polls close November 27, and winners will be announced December 4.
