Connect Five Friday – Goodreads Romance Choice Awards


It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday,  hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.

Kathryn focused on the Goodreads 2020 choice awards and so I thought I would join her. I voted in the first two rounds and was amazed at just how few of the books in all categories I had actually read. I read the most from the Romance category – four. But there are several more I want and plan to read.

Here are 5 I plan to read first:

happy ever after playlist 50208350._SX318_SY475_

The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez. I am reading it right now and so enjoying this.

in a holidaze50892287._SY475_

In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren. I’ve seen some lacklustre reviews for this one, but I do enjoy the authors and I like the premise of the book.

take a hint 49976087

Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert. I so enjoyed her previous book so have to read this one.

party of two 49099926._SY475_

Party of Two by Jasmine Guillory. Again, an author I enjoy, so must read this one.

Beach Read 52867387._SY475_

Beach Read by Emily Henry. Good reviews have made me want to read this one.

What books do you plan to read from the Goodreads choice awards?

  1. I always feel so under-read when the Goodreads Choice Awards come out. But then, I can only read so much. I have read one of the books on your list here–In a Holidaze. It was my first by these authors, but it likely will not be my last. I enjoyed it, but didn’t love it. The others are also books I want to read. They all sound so good! I hope you enjoy them when you read them! Have a great weekend, Beverly. Stay safe and well.

  2. I want to read Barak Obama’s memoir and I’d like to read the Mary Robinette Kowal book–The Relentless Moon. I hope you enjoy your books! I liked Beach Read quite a bit.

  3. Great idea to look at it this way. I usually wait until the final list is made and see if I am drawn to anything. I have read Beach Read and it was good. I haven’t read Jimenez or Guillory but have heard of both of them and would like to give them a go.

  4. I’ve heard that Beach Read is great! The Goodreads awards have got me on the look-out for a graphic novel called I Will Judge You By Your Bookshelf (I’m not a graphic novel reader usually, but I picked up Good Talk this year and it was brilliant, so I’m eager to try more).
