Hugo novel nominees by Goodreads/LibraryThing popularity

Well, it's been a brutal evening. We've always known that any old crap can get nominated for the Hugos - see my reviews of nominated works over the years - but it does hurt a bit to have that driven home quite so directly.

Anyway, the Best Novel list does offer some glimmers of hope. The nominated works, and their popularity on Goodreads and LibraryThing, are as follows:
ownersav ratingownersav rating
Skin Game, by Jim Butcher28,6914.567254.34
Ancillary Sword, by Ann Leckie5,5164.093734.14
The Goblin Emperor, by Katherine Addison3,6084.103004.30
Lines of Departure, by Marko Kloos3,5244.07654.12
The Dark Between The Stars, by Kevin J. Anderson3283.84373.44

A pretty clear ranking order then.

This may be a year when I don't get around to reading all the nominations, for the first time since 2000.
