a subtitle too (2) Michelle at The Writing Hufflepuff had the great idea to host The Book Awards; an award show ‘like the Oscars, but for books’! Please check out her blog and the award post to find out all about it and nominate your own favorite books!

I’ve decided to put together my own little post with nominations for a selection of her categories (mostly genres). I’ve included a short blurb from Goodreads that will take you straight to the book’s Goodreads page!
