  1. Stranger Magic is an excellent book in my opinion, and it absolutely deserved the award!

    I haven’t read the others yes, but I certainly will in the near future. Although I’ve seen Far From the Tree receive a lot of flame about the author biting off more than he can chew, and the books language seeming forced and needy? Strange to see that about a book on such a sensitive topic.

    Thanks for announcing the winners!

  2. Thanks for your website. I never would have found “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” without you + many others.
