2015 Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards Winners

Fiction in English

Winner: Rising by Alen Rio (Flipside Publishing)

51SwLU+hLWL._SX356_BO1,204,203,200_

It captures the Filipino reader’s interest best, young and old readers alike, because of its dystopian setting, fast-paced and cohesive plot, flawed heroes, and gripping ending. The boldness in the twists and turns of events and the rawness of the characters will surely keep one riveted until the last page.

Fiction in Filipino / Taglish

Winner: Huwag Mong Sakyan ang Buhawi by Efren R. Abueg (Ateneo University Press)

22711109

A product of its time, and that time is the last years of the Martial Law era. While its themes and writing style might be different from what younger readers are probably accustomed to, it is nonetheless a story we should all read – especially with the 2016 elections around the corner.

Romance in English

Winner: The Kitchen When It Sizzles by Chrissie Peria (self-published)

22847230

The story was well written, had good pacing, and lovable characters that were believable and relatable. Food is clearly the way to anyone’s heart, as the inclusion of it in the story had the judges agreeing that it was a big plus, making it more fun, interesting and delicious.

Romance in Filipino / Taglish

Winner: Heartless by jonaxx (Jonah Mae Pacala) (Summit/Sizzle)

22460295

A well-crafted, kilig-inducing love story of Coreen and Rozen that kept us glued to our seats madly turning the pages from start to finish.

Fiction Anthology

Winner: Gotita de Dragon by Nick Joaquin (Anvil Publishing)

2014_05_13_21_25_57

A delicious mix of tradition and modernity, sci-fi and mythology, added with a dash of horror, mystery and fantasy. This amalgam of genres will effortlessly tickle the reader’s imagination.

Young Adult Fiction

Winner: I Remember The Boy 1 : Bonifacio by Sofia (LIB)

14804910

It was really a rollercoaster of a book that will most likely leave you hanging ’til the end.

Children’s Picture Book

Winner: Isang Harding Papel by Augie Rivera / Rommel Joson (Adarna House)

1209-papel

Its moral is persistency. Life at the time was difficult, even after our hardest times under the rule of foreign nations for 388 years. With this experience, Filipinos knew when to be strong. Like in the setting of the story, The Edsa Revolution, and the term of Pres. Ferdinand Marcos.

Comics & Graphic novels

Winner: Zombinoy ~ Issue No. 6 by Geonard Yleana, Carlo Cruz, Sid Santos, Dennies Layante (Pelikomiks Studios)

Snap13

It kept us reading to the end, employing familiar tropes in a local setting to put together an entertaining zombie comic.

Poetry

Winner: Kundiman sa Gitna ng Karimlan by E. San Juan (UP Press)

27218162

Captured Filipino values, including a sense of community and spirit of involvement, in lyrical language. It also embodies, for us, what the Filipino reader is or what we hope him to be: imaginative, intelligent, and engaged with the world.

Inspirational / Religious

Winner: Boring Ba ang Bible Mo: How your Story Fits in the Big Story by Rei Lemuel Crizaldo (OMF Literature)

23174587

This entertaining book creates a light, humorous way of giving the readers the values necessary for withstanding the challenges of life. It only goes to show that a self-help book doesn’t have to be dragging in order to send an important message across.

Humor

Winner: Stupid is Forever by Miriam Defensor Santiago (ABS-CBN Publishing)

23665558

The book itself speaks of HUMOR – no green and harsh jokes, just pure fun and entertainment. Senator Santiago’s sense of humor is undeniable and effortless. Perhaps,stupid really is forever, but being funny is smart.

Food and Cookbook

Winner: My Angkong’s Noodles by Clinton Huang Palanca (Summit)

Angkongcover

It is a visually stunning, comprehensive and educational guide that fulfills the promise of Filipino-Chinese cooking.

Nonfiction

Winner: Philippine Heritage Homes by Jaime Laya, et al. (Anvil Publishing)

phil-heritage

It is the inherent beauty and power of literature to move us in subtle ways and this panel believes that the book serves this purpose.

Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards 2015 Finalists

We thought last year was record breaking, but this year just shattered our expectations and left us speechless. So yes, if you checked our post last year, we did hit 100,000 votes and exceeded that number, actually. :D What an amazing turn out! For this year we got an astounding 101, 358 votes (yes, we triple checked!) when the voting period came to a close and it took us a while to verify because of the sheer number we had to go through.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who nominated, voted, told their friends, classmates, random strangers, harnessed the power of social media or just passed the information by word of mouth to go and vote for their favorite books and authors. The committee is beyond words because of this year’s voting turn out and from our hearts, we sincerely thank you all for the support!

We made you wait long enough so finally, here are the finalists for this year’s Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards!
