Goodreads members have spoken!

Goodreads members have spoken! Thousands of votes were cast in the first-ever Goodreads Choice Awards. A few books dominated their categories, such as The Girl Who Played with Fire in the Mysteries/Thrillers genre. But many races came down to a photo finish. Catching Fire narrowly edged out The Help to become the all-time favorite book of 2009. The zombies of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies put up a good fight, but were bitten back in the final days of voting by the vampires of Dead and Gone. Here are the winners in each category!
