The Votes Are In!

What are The Book Awards? Who were all the nominees?

Are you ready to find out which nominees made it through to the next round? I know I am! Okay, I already know, but still. The nominees in italics are the ones that had already gone through to the next round. The others are in order from most to least voted on (often there were ties for the last spots though).

What’s Next?

Round 3 that is! Except that will have to wait awhile, as I’m studying for my exams. I’m not going to give you a date of when I will post. My exams are finished on the 28th, but I have about a week to study for that last exam, so I might post around the 22nd. Or who knows! I might post before that. I just don’t know. Round 3 will start this month though, so look forward to that!

QUESTIONS!

As soon as round 3 starts, there will be posts about why people should vote for a certain book or character. So let’s say on Monday we’ll talk about our Favourite Female Protagonists and on Wednesday about the Friendliest Authors (just an example). Now I was wondering, are any of you willing to help me on this? You see I haven’t read all of the nominees or know the authors. Now I can do my research, but I think as fans you guys can convince people to vote much easier! Let me know in the comments if you’d like to help. It doesn’t even have to be long.

Also, I was thinking of organizing some challenges, just for fun. I’m not sure what kind of challenges yet, but would you guys be interested in that? Again, let me know in the comments!

SO ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NOMINEES? I know I am! I can’t wait to start with round 3, but sadly I have to get through my exams first!

  1. Good luck on your exams! :) Excited for Round 3! By the way, challenges sounds like lots of fun. :D And I’d love to help with some posts if I’ve read any of the books you haven’t. <3

  2. […] Round 3 will go on much longer than the previous two rounds, as all the nominees will get their moment to shine and win votes. As I’m not familiar with all the nominees, I would love for you guys to help me. It doesn’t have to be long. One or two sentences why a certain nominee has to win is enough. Of course I will do my research, but I think fans can promote these nominees a lot better than I can! You can find all the nominees here. […]
