2014 Swoony Awards: Excellence in Clean Fiction

My friends over at the Happily Ever After Book Club have announced a new project they're working on. Kathy at Bookworm Nation, had an amazing idea and she, along with Kathy Jo at KJ's Book Nook, and Katie at Katie's Clean Book Collection have teamed up to put together the Swoony Awards! Kathy found Tiana at The Blog Decorator and she did an amazing job at designing the logo!

This is my friend, Katie's, description of the awards:

What are the Swoony Awards? Well, let me tell you. We are all lovers of good, clean fiction, especially books that make us swoon, hence the name. As we've been talking, we decided that there needs to be an award out there that recognizes all of the authors who really make an effort to bring a fun and entertaining story to readers without all the sex, language, gore, etc--a book that you can recommend to your mom...or grandma...or friend...without being embarrassed by it. We are going to have awards in a variety of categories, so please be sure to vote!

Here are the requirements to nominate a book: 
  • Only books published (or republished) in 2014 may be nominated 
  • Clean--no sex (closed door)
  • Mild/no language 
  • Mild/no violence
So...come and check out the books on the list by going here. If you know of a great book that isn't already on the list, please feel free to add it. You are able to vote for up to 100 books! Please vote for as many as you've read and loved. Voting ends at the end of 2014 and winners will be announced in January 2015.
