What a year! The Girlfriend Book Club — a closed Facebook group with nearly 40,000 members — has enjoyed a wonderful 2021 filled with great literature. We've given away thousands of books. We've heard from many prominent authors, everyone from Kristin Hannah to Liane Moriarty. We've discussed many amazing reads. And, perhaps most importantly, we've made connections with others who love books.

And now I'm so pleased to announce the winners of the 2nd Annual Girlfriend Book Club Choice Awards, the major book awards decided by members of The Girlfriend Book Club. Here are your picks of the year, in 11 different categories. Congrats to all the winners and here's to another fabulous year of reading in 2022!
