Best Fiction of 2021

To complement our “Top Ten Posts of 2021” list (which included an interview, poetry and non-fiction titles), we will now turn our attention to the best fiction of the year. The selections below are based on the recommendations of The Miramichi Reader’s team of contributors.

Winners of “The Very Best!” Book Awards for 2021

The Miramichi Reader’s “The Very Best!” Book Awards are all new for 2021. Four categories, four winners and four honourable mentions. The winners were also selected by an external jury (aside from the Non-fiction category which was overseen by James). All judges expressed how hard it was to narrow each or their respective categories down to two, not to mention having to pick one winner. Congrats to all of the ‘chosen ones’ as well as the authors whose books appeared on the 2021 longlist.
