There’s a big chance that you’ve seen that Goodreads has opened their first round of voting for the Goodreads Choice Awards 2022. It’s always fun to see what books make the list and if we’ve read them. Isabelle took a look at the fantasy nominees yesterday and today I’m taking a look at the romance nominees. Let’s see what I’ve already read!
I’m actually pleasantly surprised by how many I’ve already read. Out of the 20 titles in the first round I’ve read 10! Since I’ve kept an eye out on these awards I don’t think I’ve ever read this many. All of them were fun books and I enjoyed some more than others, but there weren’t any I disliked. I’ve read: Hook, Line, and Sinker, Every Summer After, Love on the Brain, The Bodyguard, Dating Dr. Dil, The Kiss Curse, It Starts with Us, Reminders of Him, Delilah Green Doesn’t Care, and Book Lovers. (If you can click on the title I’ve posted a review.)
Out of all of these books there is one I had an e-arc of and still really need to read. That book is Thank You for Listening. I’m really surprised I haven’t read this one yet. I even already own the paperback. Hopefully I can get this one read before the end of 2022.
There are also three that I own the paperback of, but haven’t read yet: Things We Never Get Over and Twisted Love. I know it’s Twisted Hate on the list, but that’s the third book in the series. I’m sure these can be read as standalone books like most romances, but I prefer to read them in order.
Want to Read
Part of Your World and Neon Gods are two books I want to read. Again, Electric Idol is on the nominee list, but I haven’t started the series yet. I’ve heard so many amazing things about Part or Your World and Neon Gods is actually a book club read for me this one. I may just have to start the audiobook soon.
On the fence
There are four books on the list that I’m on the fence about: The American Roommate Experiment, You Made a Fool of Death with Your Beauty, The Wedding Crasher, and Funny You Should Ask. I either don’t know much about them, have heard mixed reviews, or the first book of the series wasn’t very impressive. I’ll probably still end up trying them.
So that was an interesting list of nominees. There are definitely some good ones up there and a few I’m still really curious about. Have you read any of these? Or if you voted, let me know which one you voted for? I’d love to hear from you!
