Two of my favorite authors took home awards. The amazing Jo Walton for her novel Among Others that I must rush out and buy immediately and Delia Sherman (been a big fan of her short stories) for her Andre Norton award winning The Freedom Maze.
There were eight nominees for the Norton and I had read six of them. They were amazing! Don't know how I missed The Freedom Maze but from the caliber of the books it beat out, it will be a great read. The six I read are:
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Ultraviolet by R. J. Anderson
Everybody Sees the Ants by A. S. King
Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
Chime by Franny Billingsly
