“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” Nominated for Goodreads Choice Award for Best Fantasy

Love Harry Potter and the Cursed Child despite its divided reaction among fans? Now’s the time to show it – the title has been nominated for the 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards in the category of Best Fantasy!

J.K. Rowling and her alter-ego Robert Galbraith are veterans of the Goodreads Choice Awards, with Career of Evil having been nominated for Best Mystery & Thriller just last year. In fact, all of Rowling’s post-Potter titles have been nominated for the award, though only The Casual Vacancy has managed to snag a win (in 2012, in the Fiction category). Can Rowling bring it home this year? You’ll be the judge!

The opening round of voting will run until November 6. Readers can vote in the semi-finals November 8–13 and in the finals November 15–27. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is up against some pretty stiff competition, including The Mists of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson, The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin, A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab, and others. Don’t forget to vote right here!

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
