Don't forget to get your nominations in for this year's Cybils. All of the details are right here. The deadline for nominations is October 15 so do it today.
I've been asked by a few people what books they should nominated for the Young Adult Fiction category, and I thought I'd share a few titles I noticed are still missing from the list. If you're looking for something to nominate there, maybe pick one of these out! A handful are titles I've read and loved but couldn't nominate myself because I can only choose one and others are titles that sound like they'd make for interesting conversation for the panelists.
Nothing Special by Geoff Herbach (The companion novel to last year's Cybils winner Stupid Fast)
The Rivals by Daisy Whitney
A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger
One Shot Away by T. Glen Coughlin
Freaks Like Us by Susan Vaught
34 Pieces of You by Carmen Rodriguez
I Swear by Lane David
The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin
Zoe Letting Go by Nora Price
Wanted by Heidi Ayarbe
Thou Shalt Not Road Trip by Antony John
Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg
The Sharp Time by Mary O'Connell
Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez
All You Never Wanted by Adele Griffin
Paradise by Joanna Nadin
Because I've stumbled upon some books that fall into the YA Science Fiction/Fantasy category yet to be nominated, I'll share those too.
The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell
172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock
Burn for Burn by Siobhan Vivian and Jenny Han
Remember: anyone can nominate a title. The form is simple and painless, and the more titles there are in a category, the more opportunity the panelists have at making their lists of the BEST titles published in the last year. I hope by the end of the day today, every single one of these titles above ends up on one of the Cybils nomination lists.
