Welcome !

1. WinnersTrophyWelcome

Welcome to the people’s Book Awards where anyone can nominate or vote for titles available on  *approved book 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 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 quarterly 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 a store or review site if you wish to find out more or purchase a title.

Quick links (Scroll down the page for further details)

Vote for a book by ‘liking’ it on our Facebook page (here) or view the current list of nominations here!

Voting is open to everyone.

From 9th July 2016 , all nominations will be posted on Facebook. Voting will also transition to the use of Facebook ‘Likes’ rather than our traditional ‘click the stars’ to vote.

Titles will not be carried forward each quarter but we will be happy to do so on request and will carry forward 3 randomly selected titles.  Previous votes will not be carried forward.

If a the title for which you wish to vote is already on Facebook, simply ‘Like’ it to vote and ‘Share’ to encourage others to do the same. New nominations will automatically be posted on The Book Awards Facebook page.

If the title was nominated before 9th July 2016, use the ‘Share’ button below the nomination post and slect the Facebook option. When asked where to share it, select Facebook Group – Book Reviews and add the line “Book Awards Nomination – please add!”, it will forwarded to The Book Awards Facebook page within 24 hours and you will be able to vote, as above.

The Book Awards Facebook page can be found @thebookawards and 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 quarter and the votes of non-winning titles are carried forward. 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 quarter 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 quarter winner) will be for the format or genre. The minimum threshold for Top in Category awards will be 20 or more votes and/or ‘shares’.


Anyone is welcome to nominate a title, especially the authors themselves. You can use our ‘easy form’ to enter a cover image (at least 200 x 300 pixels), a link to the book on an *approved book site and a description. If a title is available on an *approved site, 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.

*Currently approved book sites:

Any Amazon site
W H Smith
Barnes & Noble
The Book Depository

There are no charges or hidden costs of any kind.


Each quarter, the title that has achieved the highest number of votes will be added to the Acclaimed Books (www.acclaimedbooks.com) website. In the event of a draw, both or all books will be deemed winners. The winning book(s) 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!
