The Goodreads Choice Awards 2019 have just started, and readers are currently able to vote for their favourite 2019 releases in different categories in the opening round. I voted earlier this week, and I thought it would be fun to take you through my votes. Feel free to add me on Goodreads, by the way!
I would like to remind you that you don’t have to specifically choose any of the pre-selected books. You can also add in your own favourite 2019 releases by manually adding them. You can find this function if you scroll past the selected books. This is especially a great way to add in more diverse book choices.
