Your task this month is to read at least 1 book that WON a book award in June. Any year ... as long as the award was presented in June. What will you read?

To get you started, here are a few awards that have been presented in June:

The Locus Award Winners Recognizes excellence in science fiction and fantasy literature.

I'm planning on reading The Calculating Stars (Lady Astronaut, #1) by Mary Robinette Kowal . Just trying to decide if I should listen to it on audio.
