Cybils Excitement!

So despite the current level of sick and sniffles in my home I am absolutely delighted to be taking part in this year’s Cybils Awards!



From the Cybils website:

Cybils Awards Mission

The Cybils Awards aims to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal. If some la-di-dah awards can be compared to brussels sprouts, and other, more populist ones to gummy bears, we’re thinking more like organic chicken nuggets. We’re yummy and nutritious.

This year I’m a first round judge for Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction : a category near and dear to my blogging heart!  Here are the other judges that make up the first round team:

Round 1

Charlotte Taylor
Charlotte’s Library

Brenda Tjaden
Log Cabin Library

Melissa Fox
Book Nut

Kristen Harvey
The Book Monsters

Stephanie Whelan
Views from the Tesseract

Annamaria Anderson
Books Together

Katy Kramp

Now the next part depends on everyone nominating their favorites for all the categories starting October 1st, 2015.  I look forward to seeing what we’ll be reading this round!
