Congratulations to Christy Award Nominees!

While I may have my fair share of concerns about Christian fiction, when it's good, it's really good. I always look forward to learning about the Christy Award Nominees and am even co-hosting a challenge to read Christy nominated and awarded books. (My goal is to read all of the 2009 nominees. Don't ask me how I'm doing)

You can read the full list of nominees at Title Trakk

Looking over the list, I have to admit some surprise me. One was a DNF (did not finish) for me. Another I thought was good, but the writing wasn't particularly outstanding. I'm glad to say that Daisy Chain is an upcoming Faith and Fiction Saturday round table read. I'm thrilled to see that Andrew Peterson was nominated for North! Or Be Eaten. But mostly I was thrilled to see one of my favorite books from last year and a shining example of what faith driven fiction can be nominated, The Passion of Mary Margaret by Lisa Samson. I hope it wins, but I think the competition is pretty stiff, even though I haven't read the other two books in the categories. (Also, I should probably read some Lynn Austin already, huh?)
