UPDATE (November 13):

Lethal White is through to the final round of voting in this year’s Goodreads Choice Awards! From now until November 26, you can vote for Lethal White as 2018’s best mystery or thriller. The winners will be announced on December 6 – we’ll let you know if Robert Galbraith takes home the prize.

Following in the tradition of Cormoran Strike novels before it, Lethal White has been nominated for the annual Goodreads Choice Awards in the Best Mystery & Thriller category.

Lethal White is up against titles like A.J. Finn’s The Woman in the Window and The President Is Missing, a collaboration between former President Bill Clinton and James Patterson. Books by popular thriller writers like Ruth Ware, Stephen King, and Tana French are also nominated, alongside 14 other standout novels chosen by readers as their favorites of the year.

Books by J.K. Rowling and Robert Galbraith have a history of performing well in the Goodreads Choice Awards, but don’t let that stop you from casting your vote! You only have a few hours left to vote in the semifinal round, which ends at midnight PT on November 11.

If Lethal White makes it to the finals, you can vote for it again between November 13 and 26. The 2018 winners of the Goodreads Choice Awards will be announced December 4. So what are you waiting for? Go vote!
