The 2018 BookBrowse Award Winners

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

The Award Winners are:
Best Fiction Book: Circe by Madeline Miller
Best Debut Book: Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
Best Nonfiction Book: Educated by Tara Westover
Best Young Adult Book: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

BookBrowse's annual Best of the Year awards are an excellent barometer of great reading, and are particularly noteworthy for two reasons. Firstly, because voting is only open to BookBrowse subscribers - so, unlike other popular awards, there is no vote stuffing by rabid fan bases. Secondly, instead of just voting for a book (which favors the most widely read books) subscribers rate each book they've read that is on the shortlist, and the winners are the books with the highest overall rating. Each year we pick the Top 20 Books; and from these we pick our four Award Winners. 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.
