Will these be the 2012 Hugo Novel Nominees?

(Disclaimer: English is my second language, so I want to apologize in advance for there may be mistakes in the text below. If you find any, please let me know so that I can correct it. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Miquel Codony (@codony), Josep María Oriol (@jm_oriol), Pedro Román (@leemaslibros) and I have just submitted our Hugo Nomination Ballots. If we were the only voters, these would be the five nominees for Best Novel:

  • Ready Player One by Ernest Cline (voted for by Josep María and me)
  • Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey (voted for by Miquel and Josep María)
  • Raising Stony Mayhall by Daryl Gregory (voted for by Miquel and me)
  • Embassytown by China Miéville (voted for by Miquel, Josep María and me)
  • The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma (voted for by Pedro and me)

This is is a list I would be very happy with. You can read my reviews of Embassytown and Raising Stony Mayhall to find out why they were two of my favorite novels in 2011. In fact, all these novels, with the only exception of Leviathan Wakes which I didn't like (read my review in Spanish), were my in my Hugo Recommendations list.

So, will these be the 2012 Hugo Novel Nominees? In a few weeks we will know.
