Best Fiction went to J.K. Rowling’s Casual Vacancy, which stood out among its competition, featuring titles as Emily Giffen’s Where We Belong, Kristin Hannah’s Home Front, and Karen Walker’s The Age of Miracles.

Susan Cain’s debut of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking took home Best Non-Fiction. Other notable entries include Katherine Boo’s Behind the Beautiful Forevers, and The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg.

Chart-topper Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn came away with the award for Best Mystery without a scratch.

The award for Historical Fiction went by a tight margin to M. L. Stedman’s The Light Between Oceans, just edging out Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel. Best Fantasy novel was claimed by powerhouse author Stephen King for The Wind Through the Keyhole.

Oh, and unsurprisingly the Fifty Shades trilogy that made headlines year-round and took women (and apparently men) by storm “dominated” the Romance category with Fifty Shades Freed.
