Announcing the Winners of the Sixth Annual UTOPiA Awards

Utopia Announcements, UTOPiA Awards

Before you scroll down to the winners, I wanted to take a quick second to thank YABC and especially New York Times bestselling author CJ Redwine, and movie critic at The Mix 92.9 and Clint’s Movie Reviews, Clint Redwine, for hosting the Sixth Annual UTOPiA Awards for the second year in a row. Their lip sync of “Shake It Off” was flawless, and their energy took the room to the rafters.

Over 6,300 votes came in over the two-week voting period, so thank you book community for being so passionate about your favorite authors and books!
