All year you’ve been devouring books and rating them on Goodreads. Some of your favorite authors have released new blockbusters. Some quiet debuts have become smash hits. And now it’s all reflected in the nominations for the 2014 Goodreads Choice Awards—the only major book awards decided by readers!

How did we arrive at the 15 different nominees in 20 categories ranging from Fiction to Fantasy to Food & Cookbooks to Young Adult Fiction? Lots and lots of numbers! Instead of relying on experts or judges, we analyzed statistics from the 275 million books added, rated, and reviewed on Goodreads in 2014.

We’re so excited to congratulate all of the nominees! There are some epic match-ups in this year’s list….

You have three chances to vote. The Opening Round lasts until November 8. Vote now to make sure your favorite books make it into the Semifinals (November 10 – 15) and Finals (November 17 – 24).
