The 2015 Blogger Awards Begin!

It's back.

Some of you- hopefully most of you- may remember the Blogger Awards, a celebration of this year's best books and authors. And now begins the second annual Blogger Awards! Huzzah! (And this year, I get to be a judge- also huzzah!)

Gorgeousness designed by Hannah Williams
This year, we'll have six categories:



Saturday, December 19- Best Cover, hosted by Schuyler
Sunday, December 20- Best Title, hosted by Hannah
Monday, December 21- Best Short Fiction, hosted by Ghost Ryter
Tuesday, December 22- Best Character, hosted by Annie
Wednesday, December 23- Best Book, hosted by me (!!!)
Thursday, December 24- Best Author, hosted by Allison

I hope everyone else is as excited for this as I am, because guess what? We judges need to know what we're judging. Comment on this post with your nomination for the best new book published in 2015- sorry, republications don't count. Then go visit the other judges and give them your nominations in their categories too! Nominations close November 1, so you have time if you're not sure what to nominate . . . but don't procrastinate too long! 

I'm looking forward to seeing your nominations!

    1. I know, right? I need to figure out what to nominate for all the other categories . . . Thanks for coming up with stuff. (One of the things you nominated, 95% sure it'll be what I end up reading . . . just judging off of attitudes I've seen around the internet. And by the internet I mean blogs and Goodreads.)

      Again, I know exactly what you mean. :P

  4. I'll have to comment later. I'm finding it rather hard to narrow it down to two or three books to nominate. XD

  9. Do semi-short stories count (20–40K)? If so, then By Divine Right by Patrick W. Carr. And I'd also love to nominate The Shock of Night by the same author, but it technically hasn't been released yet, besides the fact that I haven't read it yet.

    1. Semi-short stories do not count in my category . . . but they do count in "Best Short Fiction", hosted by Ghost Ryter! http://www.ghostryter.blogspot.com/2015/10/the-2015-blogger-book-awards.html
      So, definitely go over and nominate those on her blog! (Thank you for letting me know about them, though- I will have to check them out, since I like Patrick Carr's Sword and Staff trilogy.)
      Oh, and if there's any longer stuff you'd like to nominate . . . *grins* I'll still be here.

  12. I'm afraid I haven't read many new books this year! But I will nominate Pendragon's Heir by Suzannah Rowntree. Loved that one. :)

  13. I've read terribly few new books this year too, and as it's shaken out, the ones I've been most excited about, I'm disqualified from nominating ;). But I did enjoy IMPLANT by J Grace Pennington.
