Go Ahead, Make My Reading List

September 30, 2010 @ 7:16 am | Filed under: ,

Regular readers of this blog know I am afflicted with option paralysis when it comes to Choosing the Next Book. For the next three months, that won’t be a problem. Nominations for the Children’s & Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards (CYBILs) begin at midnight Eastern time on October 1st—that’s 9pm tonight for us West Coast folks! I’m a first-round judge for YA Fiction, which means that between now and the end of the year, my reading list will consist of the book you nominate in that category.

We’re kicking off the two-week nomination period with a Twitter party tonight, 12am Eastern time. Follow @cybils on Twitter for more on that! (You do not have to have a Twitter account to follow to the conversation.)

So what am I reading first?

    Obviously, I can’t nominate all of those. Maybe someone else will?

    Gosh, the only one of those I’ve read so far is BAMBOO PEOPLE (which I loved).

    Have had HUSH on my list. Hope it’s nominated so I’ll have an excuse to read it. 😉

    I am really looking forward to this. Even if it is a bit crazy.

    Just wanted to make a correction to Sherry’s post. The Fiddler’s Gun is by A.S. Peterson, Andrew Peterson’s brother.

    Thad, thanks. Looks like that one did get nominated, along with most of the others on Sherry’s list. Not EXPOSURE, DIAMOND RUBY, and THE CHARLATAN’S BOY, though. Today’s the last day to nominate…
