I’m pleased to announce the semi-finalists for the second annual Bookish Jazz Awards! 🎉 Designed to actually give readers their voice to determine the “best” reads of the year, the goal of these awards is to recognize all of the amazing stories we got to read this year!
[bctt tweet=”The semi-finalists for the 2020 Bookish Jazz Awards are here & now it’s time to vote for your favorite reads across ya & adult categories! Voting ends on January 4, 2021… will your faves make the finals?” username=”kalventure”]
Note: I’d like to apologize for the unexpected delay in the 2020 Bookish Jazz Awards. The semi-finals round was intended to release on November 20th, but due to health issues I had to take time off from the blog and the awards. I’m feeling a bit better now and excited to finish the 2020 award season strongly; thank you for your patience and understanding.
201 young adult and adult novels have made it to the semi-finals for the 2020 Jazzies! Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to cast your votes, and congratulations to all of these books & the authors! 🎉🎉🎉
For the authors of these books, we have a semi-finalist badge! The graphics are made by Loretta @ Laughing Listener and are free to display for the authors however they wish; feel free to link back to this page to spread the word.
I created a spreadsheet with all semi-finalists (click the book title to be taken to the Goodreads page for the book) that is embedded below.
There are a total of three voting rounds. This ensures that all eligible nominees have the option to be voted for in general voting; there will also be a semi-final and final round.
1) You are able to vote up to two books for each subcategory.
2) You do not need to vote in every category.
3) Voting on books you have read is preferred.
4) Every award category has two subcategories: Adult and Young Adult.
5) The voting form closes at 23:59 on January 4, 2021.
7) Finals voting will begin on January 5, 2021.
For categories with less than six total semi-finalists, they have been advanced to the finalist round.
Thank you all so much for supporting the second annual Bookish Jazz Awards and celebrating your favorite books of the year! Be sure to join the Goodreads Group and follow @ReaderAwards on Twitter so you don’t miss out on semi-finals & finals voting!
Let’s go on another adventure together!
