Best Middle Grade & Children's The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
Best Picture Books Olivia and the Fairy Princesses by Ian Falconer

The winner of Best Fiction really surprises me as I've seen a lot of mixed reviews about that book but I'm very happy with the winner of Best Fantasy as Stephen King is still and will most likely always be one of my most favourite authors of all time.

What do you think? Do you agree with the winners or do you think another book would have been more deserving of one of the titles??
