Subjective Chaos - The 2020 Winners!

Book Bloggers do natter in the secret realms of the DMs. And when several of gathered last year like Voltron then Subjective Chaos was formed thanks to C from  The Middle Shelf. For the bloggers a great chance to swap book recommendations and suggest/push/bribe our fellow judges to vote for what we thought were the best books.  We don’t always agree but I find seeing how people react to books in different ways a reminder that there is a huge variety of options in what a reader is looking for.  This year saw no really clear cut winner and there was much debate and as per usual chaos but we have now agreed our winners in the various categories
