It’s time for the Cybils Finalists!
As a quick recap, the Cybils is the Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards. Earlier this year, titles were nominated across various categories and genres. Then, groups of bloggers (the panelists) read those nominations and created a list of finalists for each category. Those finalists are what were announced today.
Now, another group of bloggers — the judges — will read the finalists and decide upon a winner in each category. Those winners will be announced on February 14. More information on how this is organized is at the FAQ for the Cybils.
Of particular YA interest:
Nonfiction. Another list where I’ve read one! It’s “The President Has Been Shot!”: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy by James L. Swanson. I haven’t posted the review yet.
How many of the finalists have you read? Did any of your nominations become finalists?
