2015 Award Winners

BookBrowse rounded off another year of of recommending the best contemporary fiction and nonfiction with its annual awards.

The award for Best Fiction was given to The Nightingale, Kristin Hannah's novel about two sisters in occupied France, a selection that was an enthusiastic favorite with our First Impression reviewers, each and every one of whom gave a thumbs up to this story of courage and endurance. In celebration of this win we are giving away five hardcover copies signed by the author (offer closes 1/1/2016.)

A wrenching, small-town story of three generations of drug runners in Georgia, Bull Mountain, won Best Debut award, while Goodbye Stranger, a delightful portrayal of middle school and its travails, won Best Young Adult Novel. Rounding off the selection is the nonfiction winner, a portrait of healing after deep loss - Helen Macdonald's H is for Hawk.

Unlike other popular awards where the most publicized books usually pocket the prizes, BookBrowse's process is more discerning giving the little guy as much room to win as the big boys. Read about BookBrowse's award process.
