CYBILS Public Nominations Announced

Cybils-Logo-2014-Nominated Thanks to Karen Yingling for the nudge to participate in the nominations that closed yesterday. Karen’s the chair of the MG Fiction category and her blog is a place I visit several times a week. MS. YINGLING READS is where it’s at. She post wonderful insights from a librarian’s perspective. Many of her reactions to story lines are very amusing.

I immediately headed over to the Cybils nomination page to toss in my choice. You only get one, so you have to be sure its worthy. Carefully reviewing my favorite books released since October 16, 2013, I chose five:

ABSOLUTELY ALMOST by Lisa Graff

THE KEY THAT SWALLOWED JOEY PIGZA by Jack Gantos

SORRY YOU’RE LOST by Matt Balckstone

THE PET WAR by Allan Woodrow

NICKEL BAY NICK by Dean Pitchford

I was a bit slow joining the party so most of my choices had already been nominated. I chose the fantastic NICKEL BAY NICK in the MG Fiction category.Jacket+Nickel+Bay+Nick

Now you can head on over to see all the nominees. It’s like MG literary heaven looking through the selections and my TBR list is now officially out of control. Can’t wait to hear who the winner is, but I’ll have to wait until Valentine’s Day 2015. Gives me plenty of time to read a large number of nominees. Below are the links to all three MG categories.

  1. awesome–my TBR is already out of control so this will be dangerous for me haha but I shall check them out!

  2. Good for you for getting to it. I was just leaving town for a short trip and didn’t get a chance. I have to check out the list — because I really need to add some books to my TBR!!!

  3. I nominated books in most categories, but for some reason can access the page that shows all of the Nominations. All the pages are blank. Any suggestions?
