My Goodreads Choice Awards: Predictions and Winners

Hello, Lovelies!

I thought it would be fun to take you through my voting process for the Goodreads Choice Awards 2019! Basically, I will show you who I voted for each round and then show you the winners!

How I vote:

  • I vote for books that I believe were well written, had an interesting plot, and dynamic characters
  • If I have not read any of the books in a category, I read the descriptions and reviews and make an educated decision of which I am likely to enjoy if read.
