Have a favorite children’s or YA book of the year?

October 1, 2008

It’s October, and that means its Cybils awards time.

For those who are unfamiliar with the Cybils, they are “the premier Web awards for children’s literature.  You, the public, nominate the books.  Then we, the bloggers, read them and hand out prizes.” You can nominate any book published between January 1 and October 15 of this year in the following nine categories:

One book per category, please. (Complete rules here.)

I’m especially pleased to see that I’ve already read some of the nominees in the YA category. Why? Because I’m lucky enough to be on the nominating panel again! I wrote about being on last year’s panel back in January, and can’t wait to get started this year.

And here are the YA Fiction committees for this year.

YA Fiction Panelists
Leila from Bookshelves of Doom
Becky from Becky’s Book Reviews
Amanda from A Patchwork of Books
Trisha from The YA YA YAs (hey, that’s me!)
Kate from Author2Author
Jocelyn from Teen Book Review
Abby from Abby (the) Librarian

YA Fiction Judges (Round II)
Jackie from Interactive Reader
Sarah from Finding Wonderland, Readers’ Rants
