Rainbow Rowell and Veronica Roth win YA Goodreads Choice Awards


eleanor and park rainbow rowellGoodreads have announced the winners of their annual Goodreads Choice Awards, and the winners in their young adult categories are Rainbow Rowell (Eleanor & Park) and Veronica Roth (Divergent).

Rowell’s two 2013 publications Eleanor & Park and Fangirl took first and second place in the Best Young Adult Fiction category, while Roth won Best Young Adult Fantasy with Allegiant, the final novel in the best-selling Divergent series, narrowly beating Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare.

Set in 1986, Rowell’s Eleanor & Park is the love story of two star-crossed misfits who fall for each other over late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes.

In Allegiant, the faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered, and Tris must find a new way of living beyond the fence, where she and Tobias hope to find answers to the questions that have plagued them since they learnt of their divergence.
