The Hugo nominations were announced last weekend, and my nominations don’t look a lot like the final slate for voting. Out of the six books up for Best Novel, only ONE of my picks is on the list (The Stone Sky, NK Jemisin), I haven’t read four of them (YET – a trip to the library is in my immediate future), and one book that I decided not to finish because the writing felt…amateurish…IS on the list. Voting for the Hugos involves ranking the nominees. That one will be last for me. For Best Novella, three of my picks are on the list, so I feel a little better about that, but my one pick for Best Novelette didn’t make it.
TWO episodes of The Good Place were nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation – Short Form, which is GREAT because I love that show so much. (If you’re not watching it, go watch it.)
I don’t know when voting will start, aside from sometime this month, but I’m totally ready! Except for not having read four of the six nominees for Best Novel. But I’ll get there!
