I love to read, but The Goodreads Choice Awards makes me realize that I don't read a lot of current books.
I tend to read a lot of older books, and I love to reread books. I was able to vote for two categories.
There were a few authors I liked and books I had on my TBR and while I was tempted to vote for those based on my like of the author/thinking I would love the book, I refrained. That would not be fair!
Do you think people voted for books they haven't read? What do you think about voting/rating a book you haven't read?
Here are the categories. I will put a photo for the ones I voted on, but for the ones I did not, I am still going to choose one book to showcase.
No votes... although I did read the first few chapters of An American Marriage and liked it. I got side tracked and never finished it
No votes...none of the books are even on my TBR
Again...no votes. I don't often reach for this catergory
Nothing... I used to read this category all the time, but haven't done much as of late. There are a few I'm curious about
Best of the Best: [This category is a grouping of winners from past years]
I voted for The Martian. I also read Catching Fire and The Fault in Our Stars" though I did not read any of these this year
Eh... meh, nothing. I don't reach for romance that much. There are a couple I might be interested in, nothing actually on my TBR
No, nothing. I really do like horror, but I need to follow through more on actually reading it
Nothing and I could sure use some humor in my life!
No, but I want to read more nonfiction
Memoir & Autobiography:
You guessed it... no
History & Biography:
No, however, I want to read the book about Robin Williams and the book about Mr. Rogers. (I almost cheated and voted for one of them, because I love those guys and the were a big part of my childhood.)
Science & Technology:
Food & Cookbooks:
No cookbooks for me
Graphic Novels & Comics:
I voted for Hearding Cats (a 4/5 star rated book). Several more in this category is on my TBR
I like poetry, but haven't read anything on the list, so nope
Congrats debut authors... I just suck keeping up with the times, so nothing for this catergory. Several are on my TBR though
Young Adult Fiction:
Nothing here, either
Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction:
Or here, but some are on my TBR
Middle Grade & Children's:
I failed one of my favorite catergories. Nothing. Children books are so comforting, reminds me of a better time
Nothing here and I do read picture books
