But I’m getting ahead of myself!
BBNYA stands for The Book Blogger’s Novel of the Year Award!
It’s an indie award that’s completely judged by book bloggers, like you and me, from all over the world!
It’s sponsored by the Folio Society, which makes the most gorgeous collectible editions of the world’s great works of fiction and non-fiction. I drool over their website regularly!
The goal is to give indie authors a chance, without being overshadowed by bigger authors and publishers as well as show the world that book bloggers do know how to pick out fantastic reads!
I wasn’t on the panel for BBNYA last year, but you can check out some of their awesome winners right here!
I also reviewed 3 BBNYA books last year and I’m linking those guys right here!
Beneath Cruel Fathoms by Anela Dean:
While Beneath Cruel Fathoms placed 6th overall, it was definitely my favourite of the three books I read!
