CHALLENGE: Book Award Challenge II, update

I've finished this challenge which isn't due to end until May, so there is still lots of time left. The goal was to read 10 award winners, with at least 5 different awards represented. The list of books I've read is below, and I expect I'll continue reading award winners. They all counted for at least one other challenge.
