VOTED BOOKS ~ GOODREADS CHOICE AWARDS (PART I) || PERSONAL BLOGGING.

Its the end of the beautiful year 2019. The year where thousands of books came out and billions of people read them. People are usually really particular about books they read but I am a mess. I read all horror/mystery and fantasy, not romantic fantasy but fantasy. Believe it or not, almost all readers around the world use Goodreads as a means of keeping track of their reading and so do I. Well I started Goodreads this year and have read almost 9 books since July. My friends say I am going too fast. I love reading so that’s not a fascinating thing to me but what’s fascinating is that I am using Goodreads this year and I have a legal right to vote.

This year I decided to participate in Goodreads choice awards and vote all the genres and I am not a person who votes based on the cover or average stars given by other readers, so before voting, I did my research and I would love to show you the books I voted for Goodreads Choice Awards, First Round. So allow me to show you my books and tell you why I voted that specific book.

Hello and welcome to my blog: Magical BookLush.

Before I start blogging about the books I want to make some things clear. One of that is me. I have a lot of my friends from my circle here who read my blog, although those idiots don’t follow, they do read. I recently talked to my friend and she told me to do a personality tag, a book tag, this tag, that tag. I was like why?? She told me that now that you are getting good views people might want to know about you and that’s what you have to provide them with.

She convinced me to do a personality tag but when I sat down to do it. I ended up deleting it because I am either way too open or way too private. So now 2 weeks of every month’s Thursdays I will do a personal blog about myself. I am making it a segment because I want to communicate with you not do a tag and answer only a few questions, so here is one of my personal blog where I tell you about what books I voted on.

So, let’s start, shall we?

Firstly the Goodreads Choice Awards has 2 rounds; the first round and the final round.

The First Round Voted Books:

FICTION:

~Where The Forest Meets The Stars By Glendy Vanderah.

Where The Forest Meets the Stars by Glendy Vanderah.

This story’s summary was the most intriguing of all the summaries I read. I loved the way the story is formed. I haven’t read the book but I have read so many books that by a summary I can tell if the story is good or not. I read the summary on Goodreads and went to Amazon to check reviews because I trust Amazon with my eyes closed and I was shocked that I was right. Actually, after reading the reviews, I decided that I will read this book soon. What I liked about this book was that the concept was different and a cancer patient was the main character so I can easily relate to this story.

If you have read this story, please comment and tell me your views so that I can decide whether it’s truly is good or not.

MYSTERY/THRILLER:

~Run Away by Harlan Coben.

Run Away by Harlan Coben.

Yes, I know most of my viewers will think I am biased because I obsess over Harlan Coben. I love him, he is the only author that I could happily pay for even if his books were of $100. I would seriously buy all his books. Harlan Coben’s Run away is a tremendous book but this book is different. Harlan tried to write something different than he usually writes and it turned out so well that Dan Brown called him a master of the thriller and he is. If you haven’t tried any of his books you really should. I really want to read his books, just waiting for my challenge to get over.

If you have read his books, comment and tell me your views.

HISTORICAL FICTION:

~City Of Girls By Elizabeth Gilbert.

City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert.

A woman’s self-respect and the way she acts after being entangled in a wave of the facades. This story is about an exiled woman struggling to live in New York City in the year 1940. I loved this story because it represents how to fight your life’s problems and how to stop acting and start being true to yourself. It teaches you to love yourself. I haven’t read it but the comments and likes show that this is an inspiring and personality building book. I liked it and might read it too.

FANTASY:

~The Kingdom Of Copper. (The Daevabad Trilogy, #2) By S.A Chakraborty.

The Kingdom Of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty.

This book is a second part of the daevabad trilogy and it is a huge hit as it is really really great. People all over the world are loving it. New York Times bestselling. It really interested me and made me want to pick it up right now. When I read the summary, I loved the idea of having djinns. This book made me feel like FANTASY TIME!!!!! People are loving it. You should try it.

ROMANCE:

~The Bride Test (Kiss Quotient, #2) By Helen Hoang.

The Bride Test By Helen Hoang.

This book makes me feel like I should give romance a try. Where a guy who hates himself and a girl who is falling for his nature. It looks like a good and nice story that has a lot of praises from a lot of readers. I really got interested in the idea of a different story. I think I might try this. Nikita don’t get too excited, I am not sure about romance yet.

SCIENCE FICTION:

~Recursion By Blake Crouch.

Recursion by Blake Crouch.

This book has been praised by each and every one of the readers. People are loving this book so much and it is indeed a unique story with a great and interesting concept. I am really looking forward to reading this and I will, as soon as it gets a little cheaper. Right now it’s working on $8. If you sleep to normal life and wake up to some parts of your life missing what would you do?? The detective tries to uncover why this is happening to people and finds some good and bad news. I am dying to read this book.

HORROR:

~Phantom Echoes By B.D. Wilson.

Phantom Echoes by B.D Wilson.

How could I not vote this book?? This is a horror story that gave me goosebumps without my permission. This is a great novel and the story is so amazing. I love horrors and I know when one is a creepy, chilly and scary novel. I loved it. I have reviewed this book so you should definitely check this book out.

HUMOR:

~Mr. Know It All: The Tarnished Wisdom Of A Fifth Elder By John Waters.

Mr. Know It All by John Waters

This book sounded very humorous to me. People are enjoying this book and highly recommend it. I really felt like this book could be a nice one. After reading the comments, I just imagined myself coming home after a tiring day at school and tuitions are sitting down to a nice funny book with a cup of coffee… And I bought the idea. I like the concept of hair spray misery and fame. I really like this book. If I can buy an idea, I will buy the book. So looking forward to this honey.

NON-FICTION:

~A Fool’s Circle By Suzanne Seddon.

A Fool’s Circle by Suzanne Seddon.

I voted for this book not because I am working to promote her work but because this woman has turned her miserable life into a story and many women around the world are relating to it. I have been mentally abused through body-shaming and this book shows it to me nicely. I really think that this book can change the world. If a courageous woman sits down to write about her life, about the wounds she has, about her pain, then my friend, that woman can create wonders through a book. I really am interested in reading this book but I am kind of caught up in exams, school and 3hrs of tuition, I barely have time to read these days.

If you have read this book, comment and tell me your views.

MEMOIR AND AUTOBIOGRAPHY:

~Inside Out By Demi Moore.

Inside Out by Demi Moore.

Yeah, this book has been voted without research because it’s Demi Moore. I love her, so this book gets a free vote. Although I did read about her a little, I felt that if I want to know more about her, this book is the only way. I have followed her since Charlie’s Angels, the Hunchback of Notre Dame and all the other awesome movies. 😍 I am really looking forward to this book.

If you have read this book, comment and tell me your views.

Okay, everyone. This is part one of the Goodreads Choice Awards book voted by me. My lovely WordPress is glitching and I don’t want to lose my content so I will post the other genres in part 2.

That’s it everybody, hope you enjoyed reading my boring book selection. Please comment and tell me your views. Like, share and follow my blog for more personal posts.

I am extremely sorry if I am not replying to your comments, I need one week more to settle down with a lot of things going on. I am stacked up with posts and books. 😡πŸ₯΄

I have taken my break and I will be regular from now. Thank you for cooperating.
