Winners of the 2020 Bookish Jazz Awards!

After much delay, I’m excited to scream that the finalists for the 2020 Bookish Jazz Awards are here! πŸŽ‰ For the second year in a row, you nominated, voted, and championed for your favorite books across 54 total categories (13 fun & 14 genre categories for both YA and adult books).

In case this is your first post of the 2020 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.

2020 was an incredibly difficult year for us all, particularly for the publishing industry. 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. Apologies for the delays in this year’s awards and thank you for your patience… now let’s get to the winners!
