Colleen’s Book Reviews – The 2016 BOOK AWARDS

WELCOME TO MY FIRST ANNUAL BOOK AWARDS PRESENTATION

I have been reviewing books for a couple of years now but never had the time or opportunity to do an annual awards post. 2016 has been filled with so much to be thankful for that I decided to recognize some of the books and authors whose writing made an impact on me, with the hopes that someone else will read these same books. It is a way that I can pay forward some of the enjoyment that I have received and recognize some outstanding Indy authors.

First, I must share that at the drafting of this post, I have read and reviewed a total of 63 books in 2016. That in itself is quite a feat! If you are looking for last minute Christmas Gifts, this is the place to SHOP!

Here’s how I chose the winners of my 2016 Annual Book Awards:

I selected the front-runners from my 5-star reviews. In my estimation, these are the books and authors who had the most impact on me. I do not say this lightly. Many of these authors have a way with words, and they have transported me to magical places. This is the true essence of why we write – not only to entertain but to be remembered in the hearts of our readers. Message received!

I have created an award photo for each of the categories. If you would like a copy of the image to use as a widget on your blog, feel free to copy or contact me, and I will email you a copy. Also, I have included the link to Amazon (where the books can be purchased) and also to my review so you can get an idea what the book is about. Click the author’s name to visit their blog.

Please check out the books and reviews. Your support means much to these authors.
