    This year was the biggest yet for the Rainbow Awards. Run by the wonderful Elisa Rolle, the awards are judged by volunteers from all over the world. This year there were more than 300 books nominated, and over 100 judges involved. I've worked with Elisa as a judge for the past 2 years, and I really like the way the program works. Each judge reviews up to 5 books, and assigns a score (1-10) for Setting Development, Characters Development and Writing Style. Multiple judges review each book independently, and the aggregate score is used to determine the winners.


    It does irk me that she blends Transgender/Bisexual into the same category, but there were still some great winners this year. If you're looking for a new read, take a few moments to check out the winners here:
