CYBILS Time is Almost Here!

The nomination period for this year’s CYBILS Awards opens on October 1st and closes October 15th. Anyone can nominate their favorites in more than ten categories from picture books to Young Adult (One nomination per category).  After you nominate, sit back and let the judges dig into the list of books. Winners are announced February 14, 2018.

I always prepare a short list to be ready just in case my first choice is already nominated (Which is usually the case). The books must have been published from October 16, 2016- October 15, 2017. Here are my favorites in the Middle Grade Non-Fiction category I hope get nominated (In Random Order):

MIDDLE GRADE NON-FICTION

REBELS AND REVOLUTIONS by Judy Dodge Cummings

MOTOR GIRLS by Sue Macy

SHACKLES FROM THE DEEP by Michael H. Cottman

 

THIS BOOK STINKS! by Sarah Wassner Flynn

WEIRD BUT TRUE! KNOW IT ALL U.S. PRESIDENTS by Brianna Dumont

**********************************

What an impressive body of work! Get your list together and nominate your favorite. You can even use one of mine! Have a great weekend.

  1. Great picks. Are you going to be a judge this year? I didn’t apply as I just don’t have the time. I’m having trouble deciding on NF MG picks. You’re brave sharing your favorites. I’ve been making a list of my favorite books in all categories since August. My goal was to find a good YA Speculative fiction this year. .

    • I applied to be second round judge. Even though I’ve read many of the books, I would not have the time to be a first round judge. Too many books with not enough hours to read them all.

  2. Ah, you have good taste. Thanks for the reminder.
