2011 Goodreads Choice Awards - Fantasy

Monday, November 14, 2011



Goodreads is taking your votes for the 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards.  The semifinal round is on with three rounds of voting. In Fantasy, the winner for 2010 was Towers of Midnight by Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordan and for 2009, it was Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris.

I'm thorn between The Heroes by Joe Abercrombie and The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. While they really aren't in the same style, both were nearly perfect in my opinion. Being forced to choose, I would probably go for The Heroes.

The nominees are :

I think I would vote The Wise Man's Fear ... although I think Kingdom of Gods and Alloy of Law would also be up there for me (even though I haven't read them yet, their predecessors have been among my favourites!)

My guess is that typing "I am thorn between..." was one of those Freudian slips revealing where your true love lies :)
