In the comments, tell us:

• How many of these 10 finalists have you read?

• Which ones did you really, really love?

• And if you had to pick just one from each category—like, if you were at the bookstore and you only had enough money to buy ONE book—which is your winner and WHY?

I’ve read 9 of the 10. My favs of those are The Rent Collector, My Loving Vigil Keeping, and The 13th Day of Christmas. If I could just buy one from each category it would be The Rent Collector, I hardly ever buy books, but this one really grabbed me, and My Loving Vigil Keeping, I’ve read that one twice and never tired of it, love it!

I have read: The 13th Day of Christmas, and The Rent Collector.
I LOVED both of them.

If I could only pick one…The Rent Collector…the most amazing book I read last year!

Read them all. I loved The Rent Collector. It was heart-wrenching and hopeful at the same time. And it really made me think. Also really liked Dancing on Broken Glass. I was so fascinated by the treatment of mental illness. Very good.

I really liked all the Historicals but one. But my favorite was Within the Dark Hills by Sian Ann Bessey.
