Minnesota Book Awards

I was a preliminary judge again for the Minnesota Book Awards, and I loved it as much this year as I did last year.  What a great task – to read 25 books!  My category was Genre Fiction, of which I am a particular fan.

The judges assembled on Saturday to choose the finalists.  It was a tough decision, as there were a number of terrific reads. We could only choose four, however.  The finalists in Genre Fiction are:

  • Code Black by Philip Donlay (ibooks)
  • Maiden Rock by Mary Logue (Bleak House Books/Big Earth Publishing)
  • Protect and Defend by Vince Flynn (Atria Books/Simon & Schuster)
  • Thunder Bay by William Kent Krueger (Atria Books/Simon & Schuster)

They’re all terrific reads and I recommend them all.  If you’re interested in learning which books were chosen as finalists in the other categories, you can visit the Minnesota Book Awards site.
