The INSPY Awards

I just wanted to share some very exciting news with you about the INSPY Awards! On Friday, the shortlists were announced for this year's awards, and the books look amazing -- I've already added quite a few to my wishlist. For those of you who aren't familiar with these awards, the INSPY Awards are "The Bloggers' Award for Excellence in Faith-Driven Literature."

I am also excited because I will be participating in the judging process for the General & Literary Fiction Award! Check out these terrific books which I will be reading over the next two months or so:

The Christmas Glass by Marci Alborghetti, Guideposts, 1st October, 2009
Life in Defiance by Mary DeMuth, Zondervan, 1st May, 2010
Lost Mission by Athol Dickson, Howard Books, 1st September, 2009
Lucky Baby by Meredith Efken, Howard Books, 13th April, 2010
Crossing Oceans by Gina Holmes, Tyndale House, 1st May, 2010

I am truly honored to have been selected as a judge and I can't wait to share with you my thoughts about these books!

I can't wait to hear about them. I am feeling every bit of guilt I can muster because I was supposed to be a judge, and I just had to cry uncle because I am in over my head. It makes me very sad. I hope maybe next year I can contribute...

Congradulations on becoming a judge and I am looking forward to hearing about the books that were selected.
