The Bookish Award Winners

The Bookish Award Winners

It’s that time of year again: If you’re like us, you’ve got your eyes trained on the red carpet and you’re rooting for your favorite movies, tv shows, and performers to win something shiny this awards season. But here at Bookish, we can’t help but notice that books don’t get their own awards show. To help remedy the situation, we’re hosting our own Bookish Awards inspired by the Oscars. Vote below, and let us know who you think stole the show this year!

The polls have closed. Our readers have spoken and picked the best reads of the year. Check out the results below.

Thank you for voting!
