You’ve nominated, voted, and championed for your favorite books published in 2021, across 54 categories (breakdown: 13 fun categories & 14 genre categories for both YA and adult books). Now it’s the moment of truth: the winners of the 2021 Bookish Jazz Awards are here! 🎉
In case this is your first post of the 2021 award season, the Jazzies were designed to actually give readers their voice to determine the “best” reads of the year. You can learn more about their origins here.
You nominated a total of 187 books published between November 1, 2020 and November 30, 2021 for the 2021 Bookish Jazz Awards. (That’s amazing!) The field thinned through the three voting rounds, and we’re left with 48 winners for the 2021 Jazzies!

Winner Award Badges
For the authors of these books, we have a winners 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 about these annual awards.
The past two years have been difficult for not only each of us, but also the book industry. Thank you for taking the time to celebrate your favorite reads of the year with the Jazzies, spreading the word, and your endless support. Now more than ever, books rely on word of mouth with the shutdown of book conventions and events, and hopefully these awards will bring new books onto your TBRs, and give you new favorites.
