And the winners are …

 Dibby Hill Book Awards

2013

Best Novel for Adults:  Swamplandia, Karen Russell

Best Novel for Young Adults: Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein

Best Non-Fiction: The Invisible Line, Daniel Sharfstein

Best Fantasy Novel: Her Majesty’s Dragon, Naomi Novik

* These are books I read in 2012, not books that were published in 2012  

 All of these were tough choices this year. Honor books abound, especially in adult fiction, 1Q84, Cloud Atlas, The Tiger’s Wife, and Billy Lynn’s Long Half-Time Walk.

2013 List:

4. Splendors and Glooms, Laura Amy Schlitz
3. Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey, The Countess of Carnavon
2. Marion Fay, Anthony Trollope
1. Castle Richmond, Anthony Trollope
