Goodreads Announces 2015 Choice Award Winners

The success of this year’s Goodreads Choice Awards is testament to the fact that readers love to share their thoughts on books they love. After two rounds and more than three million votes, the 2015 Goodreads Choice Award winners have been announced.

It’s probably no surprise to most that Paula Hawkins’ mega-bestseller The Girl on the Train won in a landslide for Best Mystery & Thriller, but some readers are expressing shock that Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman took away honors for Best Fiction. Whatever your thoughts are on that scenario, here is a list of this year’s big winners:
