Nebula Short Lists - Goodreads/LibraryThing stats

Lots to crunch here. First of all, the GR/LT stats for the Best Novel finalists:
Goodreads LibraryThing
owners av rating owners av rating
Spinning Silver, by Naomi Novik 114,671 4.3 793 4.28
The Poppy War, by R.F. Kuang 76,250 4.04 371 3.98
The Calculating Stars, by Mary Robinette Kowal 27,696 4.22 321 4.08
Blackfish City, by Sam J. Miller 18,116 3.63 189 3.4
Witchmark, by C.L. Polk 15,627 3.92 182 3.71

Impressive lead on all four metrics for Spinning Silver.

For Best Novella, there is also a clear leader, if not quite so strongly ahead, but the different modes of publication may mean that we are comparing apples and pears here:
Goodreads LibraryThing

Artificial Condition, by Martha Wells 28,406 4.29 378 4.26
The Tea Master and the Detective, Aliette de Bodard 8,036 3.96 159 3.81
The Black God’s Drums, by P. Djèlí Clark 6,132 4.12 107 4.27
Gods, Monsters, and the Lucky Peach, by Kelly Robson 4,172 3.71 104 3.72
Alice Payne Arrives, by Kate Heartfield 789 3.79 14 4
Fire Ant, by Jonathan P. Brazee 540 4.27 4 4

And we can do the same calculations also for the The Andre Norton Award for Outstanding Young Adult Science Fiction or Fantasy Book:

Children of Blood and Bone, by Tomi Adeyemi 267104 4.23 1333 4.04
Dread Nation, by Justina Ireland 49732 4.17 491 4.23
Tess of the Road, by Rachel Hartman 29456 3.94 266 4.07
Aru Shah and the End of Time, by Roshani Chokshi 30470 4.12 233 3.92
Peasprout Chen: Future Legend of Skate and Sword, by Henry Lien 1111 4.1 23 4
A Light in the Dark, by A.K. DuBoff 108 4.41 1 0

Another front-runner. But the last of these is rather mysterious - only one owner who has bothered to register their purchase with LibraryThing? Surprisingly low for a Nebula shortlisted book.

Anyway, plenty of time to go.
