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.

About BookBrowse

Our Mission
Because people don’t have the time to read about every book, let alone read all of them, BookBrowse seeks out and recommends only the best in contemporary fiction and nonfiction. We feature high-quality, well-written books across a range of genres, mainly for adults, with some outstanding YA—books that not only engage and entertain but also deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Our Visitors
Each month, BookBrowse attracts half a million avid readers and buyers of intelligent fiction and narrative nonfiction, particularly book clubbers and those who read to expand their horizons. They visit us looking to find out what’s new, and to explore their specific reading interests. They return to us, and subscribe to our newsletters, because our carefully curated content allows them to bypass the noise of less selective and crowd-sourced sites to easily find the books that are right for them.
