The Book Oscars

Cate at the Bookshelf Project has been hosting the Book Oscars over on her blog for the last two weeks. She asked different book bloggers to provide nominations in the following bookish categories (I was flattered to be asked for my noms for Best Film Adaptation of a Novel):

Best female character in a novel
Best male character in a novel
Best film adaptation of a novel
Best Cover Design
Best fiction

What a great idea! Unfortunately, voting has now closed - I really should have gotten this post up sooner - but check Bookshelf Project tomorrow and Monday for Oscars posts and the announcement of the winners!

What would your nominations be in the categories above?


  1. ooh, sorry i missed that feature too! great idea but i'm at a loss for suggestions. there are so many great covers out there--i actually made a resolution to stop by books based on covers alone!

    i'll have to pop over and see what was voted in!

  2. That is the neatest thing ever! I wish I'd know early so I could vote! Now, back to the red carpet. :)

  3. What a great idea ... I wish I'd seen it earlier. I always freeze up when asked to come up with these kinds of answers on the spot though. I'll have to check out the nominees though.
