Goodreads Choice Award Books I’ve Actually Read (Spoiler: not many)

Helloo, happy Monday (or not, I completely understand if you’re miserable on Mondays, the only reason I’m not overly miserable on Monday’s is because I’m only at uni for an hour and that’s not until 2 o’clock).

I was meant to be at work tonight but they sent out an email saying they’d over-staffed and if anyone wanted to drop a shift then don’t be scared to do so. I worked last night and had a sore throat so bad my manager gave me a free slush. I was super tired tonight and just couldn’t be arsed leaving the house, into the cold, when I was so cosy and having fun with my housemates.

Since I had an unexpected night off I figured I’d talk about the Goodreads Choice Awards. UGH! The Goodreads Choice Awards!! Every year I think I’m doing well with new releases and then this comes around and proves me wrong.

To be honest I’ve not done too bad this year, but still, considering how many categories and books there is, I’ve not done great either. To make myself feel better, I thought we’d go over the nominee’s I’ve actually read!!



Any Way the Wind Blows by Rainbow Rowell – This is the most recent book on this list that I completed and I genuinely loved it. With my whole heart I just had so much fun with this one. I wanted to read it non-stop but also didn’t want it to end. My new mission is to get my friend to read this series. I sent him a few bits of dialogue which he found funny so I’m hopefully he won’t take much convincing.

Our Violent Ends by Chloe Gong – And here we have the second most recent read. This was the perfect end to this stunning duology. I read the first book during an unexpectedly busy week, and I read this the week assignments were due. Being busy while reading a great book is so annoying!!

Cheer Up: Love and Pom Poms by Crystal Fraiser & Val Wise – I didn’t know what to expect when I was accepted for an ARC of this. I requested it because I liked the cover art, but oh my word was this cute!
