Drumroll, Please: Introducing the First-Ever POPSUGAR Book Club Awards

The POPSUGAR Reading Challenge community is something special. If you've taken on one of this year's 40-plus prompts or chimed in on a POPSUGAR Book Club Facebook group thread, you already know what I'm talking about. This is a passionate bunch of readers, one that understands a good book can bring joy, escape, adventure, and comfort in every season. And when a POPSUGAR Book Club member gives a title two thumbs up, you know it must be a real winner. As 2020 comes to a close, we decided to spread the wealth and let the rest of the world in on this group's A-grade recommendations. Enter: the inaugural POPSUGAR Book Club Awards!

The first-ever POPSUGAR Book Club Awards are going to celebrate our community's most-loved books of the year, from romance stories that swept us off our feet to mysteries that kept us guessing for hundreds of pages — but we need your input to pick the best of the best. Voting will take place in two rounds. First, submit your nominations through this simple form before it closes Nov. 8 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Make sure all titles were published in 2020, and don't forget to include the author's name so your nomination can be counted! Once nominations are tallied up, we'll launch the final round of voting using Facebook polls in our POPSUGAR Book Club Facebook group starting on Nov. 12. (If you haven't joined yet, do that right here so you can cast your vote in the second round!) Polls will close at 6 p.m. ET on Nov. 18 and winners will be announced shortly after.

We're so excited to shout out the books that captured your attention and brought a little joy in 2020. Whether you finished this year's reading challenge in its entirety or are just hearing about our books community and challenge for the first time, we can't wait to have your nominations.
