2010 Cybils Finalists

January 1, 2011

It’s always a lot of fun to see which books the panels picked, but *cough* if I’m being honest, the best part this year is that two of the three books I nominated made their respective shortlists.

Shortlists for all the categories are available at the Cybils site, but here are the YA-related ones.

Young Adult Fiction

  • Dirt Road Home by Watt Key
  • Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly
  • I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan
  • Scrawl by Mark Shulman
  • Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
  • Split by Swati Avasthi
  • Stolen by Lucy Christopher

And anyone interested in serving on this panel in the future should read Kelly Jensen’s behind the scenes peek at Life on the Cybils YA Panel. I mean, I thought 120 books (or whatever the number was back in 2008) was a lot; I can’t even imagine 180+!

  • Brain Jack by Brian Falkner
  • Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey
  • Plain Kate by Erin Bow
  • Pod by Stephen Wallenfels
  • Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry
  • Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

Graphic Novels (YA)

  • Mercury by Hope Larson
  • Night Owls Vol. 1 by Peter Timony
  • Twin Spica, Volume: 01 by Kou Yaginuma

  • The Hive Detectives: Chronicle of a Honey Bee Catastrophe by Loree Griffin Burns
  • Kakapo Rescue: Saving the World’s Strangest Parrot by Sy Montgomery
  • The Secret of the Yellow Death: A True Story of Medical Sleuthing by Suzanne Jurmain

    The real question is how many have you read?

      Of the four lists above? 7.5. And I’ve got Rot & Ruin checked out from the library right now. That’s about one shortlist’s worth!

      Okay, so I still have a lot more to read. 🙂
