It's that time of year again. The 2013 Whitney Award finalists were recently announced, and academy members are reading like mad trying to complete as many categories as possible so they can put in their votes.
I'm looking forward to posting some dual reviews with Tarah to see how much we agree or disagree on some of the finalists. We will mostly likely do these posts about each category (General, Historical, Romance, Mystery/Suspense, etc.), so they will come when we've both completed a category.
In the meantime, here are links to some of the finalists that I've
already blogged about:
Mile 21 by Sarah Dunster
Ruby's Secret by Heather B. Moore
Esther the Queen by Heather B. Moore
Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson
Longing for Home by Sarah M. Eden
Rocky Road by Josi S. Kilpack
I, Spy by Jordan McCollum
Echo in Time by C.J. Hill
Heart of the Ocean by Heather B. Moore
Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
Each year's finalists and winners are a great place to look when you are trying to find something to read. I haven't loved every book I've read since discovering the Whitney Awards, but some of my favorite books have been finalists and/or winners.
