Golden Mid-Year Book Awards | It’s AWARD SEASON: My Mid-Year Favourites
I am seeing EVERYONE do the Mid-Year Book Freak Tag and while that’s fun, I thought I would host my own Book Award Show for my Mid-Year Favourites with some cute Golden Book Awards. I kind of prefer this because I don’t like to dwell on books I didn’t enjoy, I cannot keep track of my anticipated releases for the year and honestly, this is just a great and simpler way to congratulate myself, authors, and books everywhere!
Using a similar format to my 2018 Wrap-Up, here are the Award categories and their winners for my mid-year favourite books of 2019. Let’s share the love!
Best YA Fantasy Book
The Wicked King by Holly Black
One that surprised me SO much and had a crazy ending, which has made me so excited for the next sequel. Holly has me hooked.
Best YA Sci-Fi
This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada
A surprising read with so much mystery, action and sciency goodness. I do love biology and all the DNA and lab experiments made this for an awesome read.
Best YA Contemporary
The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews
Cait just knows how to make us cry and laugh, sometimes at the same time. An amazing contemporary novel by a blogger queen.
Best YA Graphic Novel
Paper Girls Vol. 2 by Brian K. Vaughan
Although Volume One was an awesome introduction, Volume 2 is my favourite so far and brought about many twists and audible gasps.
Best YA Mystery/Thriller
Sadie by Courtney Summers
Definitely, one of my new favourite contemporary novels, especially because the audiobook, was so phenomenal! It was a very pleasant surprise.
Best Adult Fantasy
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
I was fully immersed and love this world and the story and it was just amazing!
Best Adult Fiction
The Flower Girls by Alice Clark-Platts
I feel like I’ve talked about this book so much even though I only read it this year, I cannot recommend it enough. I LOVED IT. Honestly, my favourite surprising book so far this year.
Best Adult Romance
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang
Although it wasn’t as amazing as The Kiss Quotient, this romance novel was so enjoyable and I can’t wait to read more from Helen Hoang. It’s only the Adult Romance I’ve read and haven’t DNFed so far this year!
I thought these awards were pretty cute to give to these books that I thoroughly enjoyed so far this year. I’m super excited to read more anticipated releases and other reads I get to from my shelves.
