Welcome !


Welcome to the people’s Book Awards where anyone can nominate or vote for titles available on the *Amazon sites worldwide.

The Book Awards are a division of Acclaimed Books Limited based in Plymouth England.


These are the only book awards that are truly open to the book (and *Kindle) reading public. Ordinary people (including authors!) who wish to show their support for a particular title may do so by nominating or voting for it in our monthly award competition. Not only will you find the work of established and emerging writers, but you can see their popularity from the votes in support of each title. Nominations include a link so that you can click through to Amazon if you wish to find out more or purchase a title.

Vote for a book by clicking the stars, or view the current list of nominations here!

Winners can be found here!


Voting is open to everyone. There is no need to register, join, or pay a fee. Nor do we request any personal information, so you will not be bothered by follow up contacts. Scroll down the page to see all the current nominations.  All we ask is that you rate the title of your choice by clicking the star rating system according to how much you enjoyed it. Please only vote once for any title or you may jeopardise its chances. You are also very welcome to leave a comment or review if you wish.

One small point though; we don’t encourage negative reviews. Why? Because there are plenty of sites where people indulge in pretty unpleasant ranting about the works of others. They seem to forget that authors are human and can be upset and/or demotivated by such remarks. Constructive criticism is fine if it’s done politely and is well intentioned, but comments that are clearly intended to hurt will be removed. If you don’t like a book, please just ignore it. The Book Awards exist to show appreciation of the author’s work, so even a one star rating is a positive endorsement.

The voting closes on the last day of each month and the votes of non-winning titles are carried forward. Monthly winning titles are taken out of the competition and placed permanently in our winners section at Acclaimed Books. Each winning title will have its own page where comments and reviews can be left and with a purchase link for book buyers. Winning titles will automatically be promoted (as award winners) via our social media accounts to thousands of international followers.

Each month we will also honour the top title in its category and append the nomination page with a ‘Top in Category‘ banner. The top categories (which will exclude the overall monthly winner) will be for the format or genre. The minimum threshold for Top in Category awards will be 20 or more votes.


Anyone is welcome to nominate a title, especially the authors themselves. You can use our ‘easy form’ to enter a cover image (140 x 160 pixels), a link to the book on Amazon and a description. If a title is available on Amazon, we know it will be suitable, so that is our only criteria. However, we reserve the right to delete any entries that are deemed to be unsuitable for a wide audience; at our sole discretion.

There are no charges or hidden costs of any kind.


Each month, the title that has achieved the highest number of votes or, in the event of a draw, a combination of votes and ratings, will be added to the Acclaimed Books (www.acclaimedbooks.com) website. The winning book will then be permanently featured and advertised free of charge to the thousands of international book lovers who visit the website.

Guidance on how to make the most of the success is available for all monthly winners (thebookawards.com/awards/winners/winner-pr/).

So if you are an author, or a grateful supporter of someone else’s hard work, The People’s Book Awards are for you!
