I both dread and ADORE the yearly Readers Choice awards. I dread it because…ugh, SO. MUCH. WORK. Literally days and days worth of free time (like the 5 hour stint tonight that made me late opening the polls!). But when I’m done, it is absolutely all worth it for so many reasons.
I love recognizing the authors who work so hard on their craft and struggle to reach new readers
I adore finding new must-read books and instantly downloading them into my Kindle queue (I’m not even going to tell you how much I spent on ebooks while putting together the nominee list!)
Seeing my fellow romance readers get excited about how their favorites are doing in the voting makes it so much more fun.

Much <3 to everyone who is here to show love for their favorite romances and authors of 2016! Without further ado…

Let the voting begin!

A few quick notes before you get started…

  • In some categories, you can vote for more than one nominee!
  • You’ll only be able to submit your vote(s) for each category once during the entire event, so choose carefully!
  • Voting ends at 9pm Pacific time on Monday, December 19th.
  • Winners for the Readers Choice Awards will be celebrated (and GT Book Award winners announced) on Thursday, December 22nd here on GraveTells.com
