Goodreads Choice Awards 2014

It's official: 2014 is coming to an end. Although the onslaught of fall titles likely means there are still quite a few books to keep bibliophiles busy until December, it's a great time to reflect on the books we've already read (and loved) this year.

This yearly tradition allows Goodreads users to vote for the best books of the year in a myriad categories. It's not only a great way to support your favourite titles, but to discover new reads that might have slipped through the cracks (perhaps while you were busy participating in the 2014 Harry Potter re-read). And whether you love fiction or nonfiction, there is a lot left to discover. You'll find a lot of the usual suspects, sure. Margaret Atwood, Rainbow Rowell, Louise Penny, Haruki Murakami, Sarah Waters, and Lena Dunham are all (unsurprisingly) nominated. But you never know what lesser-known gems are just waiting to be added to your ever-growing to-be-read pile.

The opening round of voting has already begun the semi-finals will run November 10th-15th, and the finals from November 17th-24th.
