The Starless Sea | Erin Morgenstern
post image

So anyone who has known me for a while knows i started the #LitsyAwards because the GoodReads awards PISS ME OFF! This is the perfect reason why!!. This tagged book came out TODAY!! How has anyone had a chance to read it to fully vote!!! This system is rigged. It's amazon playing to their data on sales, not on actual reads. And publishers hyping things!!! UGGGHHHHH

#LitsyAward Nominations start Dec 1.

8little_paws Oh I can't stand them either. They're a popularity contest 1w
LibrarianRyan FYI, I am not knocking The Starless see at all. After all my pre-order should be delivered today.

But how are people really supposed to vote for the best sci-fi book of the year few have even read the book.

Okay, enough B&M-ing from me for now.

Laughterhp I had the same exact thought about this book when I was looking at the nominated books today. 1w

Scochrane26 I‘ll be interested in participating in the Litsy awards. 1w
lele1432 Hahaha yup I saw the list last night and just rolled my eyes at some of the newest releases. There are some great books in the line up but many should be considered for NEXT year! I don't like it being tied to Amazon. It's definitely more of a popularity/marketing hype contest than being based on what's actually been read. 1w
julesG It's definitely a popularity contest. @lele1432 1w
LibrarianRyan @Scochrane26 Starting Dec 1 one you can. I have just found if I draw things out too long, then we don't have as much feed back. So December is for nominations. And then January is for multiple rounds of voting.

Twainy I saw The Toll on their list and was surprised since it came out today. It might have had a pre-release? 1w

Voting for the #GoodreadsChoiceAwards is open now. I‘m disappointed again by the nominated books. They are so middle of the road, so predictable and uninspired. I know it‘s based on added and reviewed books on the platform itself, so I shouldn‘t be surprised, yet I do think these Awards do add nothing to what we already know without voting. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Kalalalatja I feel you. I haven‘t even looked at the nominated books yet, and I already know, I won‘t be surprised.. 2w
Cinfhen I agree; these awards are usually uninspiring!!! I haven‘t looked but I guarantee Testaments and Crawdad‘s are going to win 🙄 2w
Cinfhen I guess Crawdad‘s was on the list last year🤷🏼‍♀️did it win??? 2w

BarbaraBB @Cinfhen It must have been on the list last year, it‘s one of those predictable nominees indeed. Give me the #ToB longlist over this one any time! 💕 (edited) 2w
LeahBergen These lists are always so “meh” for me, too. 😐 2w
Reggie What‘s a book you would like to see win some award? 2w
BarbaraBB @Reggie I‘m not sure if they were all published in this timeframe but I loved 2w
BarbaraBB To name a few! 2w
Reggie I haven‘t read any of them, booooo, I‘ll have to change that. 2w
Birdsong28 You can add your own suggestion 2w
batsy Agreed! Because it's based on GR data it'll inevitably be the most hyped books that end up there. 2w
Ms_T Litsy should do a Best Books of 2019, the list would contain a much greater variety of literature. 2w
Amiable I agree. I‘m usually uninspired by the choices. 2w
BarbaraBB @Ms_T Litsy does! I think it‘s organized by @LibrarianRyan (edited) 2w
LibrarianRyan @BarbaraBB @Ms_T yep. Nominations for the #LitsyAwards will start Dec 1. I have the form ready and everything. Click through the hashtag to see the last two years worth of awards. 2w
Ms_T @LibrarianRyan @BarbaraBB Great, I‘ll check it out! 2w
MicheleinPhilly I completely agree. These “awards” are just silly. I have this list bookmarked as they update it every month. It‘s fantastic: https://www.realsimple.com/work-life/entertainment/best-books-2019 2w
BarbaraBB @MicheleinPhilly Wow, that is a fantastic site. I know what I‘m gonna go tonight 😎😜 1w
lele1432 Yeah, I'm writing in a YA book I'm almost finished with that's not listed sadly, due to not enough hype, but it's fantastic! I'm excited for the #LitsyAwards! 1w
BarbaraBB @lele1432 That one sounds good! I do have a weak spot for everything related to Haïti ?? 1w
BarbaraBB @LibrarianRyan Thanks! Looking forward to it! 1w
lele1432 I thought it was so good! I hadn't read anything related to Haiti before. 😊 1w

Hey All, As you may already know, I am gearing up for the #LitsyAwards 2019. And after looking at survery responses so far, it is very obvious that you all want to keep the Litsy CERTIFIED Authors category. This list is from 4.2018. Let's update.

WANNA BE Litsy Authors - authors who opened Litsy accounts, but don't use them. Have you found any authors that need to be added to this list? If so please tag them below.

rachelm Never mind! Verified 3w
LibrarianRyan @rachelm Yeha, you caught me before I got the other up. She use to be pretty active. 3w

#GrowUp is Strickly for adult books. No YA here please.

Intentions:
1. Look under #LitsyAwards
4. New York Times
6. what book made you make that sound
7. Friends reference

As always, it's up to your interpenetration.

I have been evil (aka lazy) and kept the winners to myself this entire long weekend. Well wait to more. The revels are about to begin.

Be sure to share your favorites.
