This is a list of books that won multiple SFF awards, listed in order of the number of awards they won and then author and title, with my ratings and links to my reviews where available. After each title is a list of abbreviations giving the awards that it won linked to the full list of winners of that award and the explanation of its judging criteria.

While winning more than one award does seem to weed out some of the lowest ratings, it's not a guarantee that I'll particularly like the book. Also, there doesn't seem to be a strong correlation between my opinion of a book and the number of awards it won after the second; the books winning three awards (or four awards) seem to have around the same average rating as the books winning two awards.
