Well, it’s a little later than it should be, . . . .but the voting is done and the winners have been chosen. Thank you to everyone who voted for the 2014 winners. It was an honor to review each of these books.
To become a Top Book, and in the running for Best Book, a book must receive a 6-star review here at Kid Lit Reviews, released within the 2013 and 2014, and have been reviewed between December 1, 2013 and November 30, 2014. Voting normally occurs in December and the results announced in January. This year the only variation was the actual voting, which took place in March. Hopefully 2015 will be a healthier year and all will go as planned.
So, without any further delay, here are the winners. Congratulations to all.
