Happy New Year, dear readers!
I’m back at work after spending a week with my family. I have lots of lists and stats to get to – but first of all, in case you missed it, the Cybils finalists were announced on the first. I’m really happy with the great books we chose for the Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction:
A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge
A Properly Unhaunted Place by William Alexander
Last Day on Mars by Kevin Emerson
Miss Ellicott’s School for the Magically Minded by Sage Blackwood
Spirit Hunters by Ellen Oh
The Countdown Conspiracy by Katie Slivensky
The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burgis
The winner will be announced on Valentine’s Day – but meantime, I’m going to be checking out and reading finalists from the other categories!
