Click here for the full list of nominees which include (but is not limited to) the categories:
- Best Novel
- Best First Novel by and American Author
- Best Paperback Original
- Best Crime Fact
- Best Critical Biography
- Best Short Story
- Best Juvenile
- Best YA
- and my favorite because it can also serve as a new readalike list every year...The Mary Higgins Clark Award.
This year I have read two of the nominees. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (best novel) and The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters (best paperback original). Use the links to read my reviews. I greatly enjoyed both novels.
The winners will be announced in early May, but at the BPL we have an obvious favorite. [Seriously, if you don't know who you need to read this blog more often, or just click here.]
For those of you who have read all the nominees already and are itching to get started on what will be on next year's list, Book Page has a list of 12 Mysteries coming in January for the full spectrum of crime fiction fans.
Class tonight and then look for reviews tomorrow and Friday in the spirit of my New Year's Resolution.
