Goodreads Choice Nominees


To help myself remember which I’m going to try and read in time to vote on them. Obviously, I will not get to all of these. But I’m actually in a lull between books anyway, and I have been feeling like I didn’t get to do as much of the readathon as I wanted to, so maybe I will get through more than I’m expecting.

    Ooh, is that a new Amor Towles? I read Rules of Civility a few years ago and loved it.

      It is. I haven’t read either yet, but I would like to.

    Looking back at this, I’m impressed by how many I ended up reading! (And embarrassed, because WHY did I spend that much time on this?) All four of the fiction titles plus one not listed, one historical fiction not listed, two of the nonfiction plus a third not listed, the memoir plus one not listed, and the science/technology title plus another not listed. I started four of the other books but didn’t finish them. Aaaand this ridiculous overload is why I didn’t finish any of my reading challenges.
