I'll be posting the 2008 2nd Annual Writer's Notebook "Best Books of the Year" post early January 2009!
This was a great year for books, and there were some great award opportunities I saw when reading. I'll be reading a couple more books before 2008 ends for my own consideration. We've had everything from PENDRAGON's penultimate volume, to Artemis Fowl's final adventure, to high-profile books like Brisingr anf The Tales of Beedle the Bard (yes, I've read it). There will be categories as follows:
Best Debut (this includes if I'm reading the first book I've read from the author, and it was published in at least one edition this year)
Best Series Starter
Best Fantasy World
Best Whimsy (yes, I know)
Best Christian Fiction
Best Movie Adaptation
Best Fight Scene
Best Penultimate Novel
Best "To be Continued..." Moment
Book I'm Looking Forward to Most Next Year
Author of the Year
Book of the Year
Don't forget! Watch the skies... or something like that.
