Open voting has started in the final round of the Goodreads Choice Awards 2020 and will continue until November 30. There are 20 categories overall.
In the semifinal round, the five write-ins that got the most votes in the opening round were added to Goodreads’ 15 initial choices to make a ballot of 20 titles. Only one write-in has advanced to the finals in the three primary categories of genre interest – Best Fantasy, Best Science Fiction, and Best Horror — Hank Green’s A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor (The Carls, #2) in the Best Science Fiction category.
Some of the well-known books on Goodreads’ opening slate that have fallen by the way are John Scalzi’s The Last Emperox and William Gibson’s Agency (in Best SF), Rebecca Roanhorse’s Black Sun (in Best Fantasy), and Paul Tremblay’s Survivor Song (in Best Horror).
Here are the categories with finalists of genre interest.
