The Goodreads Choice Awards began in 2011. They are voted on annually by readers on Goodreads. Voting occurs over three different rounds (opening, semi-finals, and finals) with the winners announced near the beginning of December. This guide focuses on the Young Adult Fantasy and Fiction winners, as well as the Debut Novel and Graphic Novels & Comics awards when it pertains to YA authors or books.
(Note: Prior to 2019, the Debut Novel award was called the Debut Goodreads Author award. This award began in 2013.)
