One of the things I love about the Cybils awards are the many books I get to try that I wouldn’t get around to otherwise. One of the hardest parts is making a shortlist of only seven books, because I always love more than seven books (see my 2018 post and my 2016 post on the same topic). Here, with links to my reviews if I have them, are a dozen more books that I wish we could have included:
The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle by Christina Uss
The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge by M.T. Anderson and Eugene Yelchin
Bluecrowne by Kate Milford
Bob by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead
Dactyl Hill Squad by Daniel José Older
Endling: the Last by Katherine Applegate
Ice Wolves by Amie Kaufman
The Lost Books: Scroll of Kings by Sarah Prineas
Nightbooks by J.A. White
Peasprout Chen: Future Legend of Skate and Sword by Henry Lien
The Serpent’s Secret by Sayantani DasGupta
The Turning by Emily Whitman
Nightbooks was one I had to return to the library before I could get too far into it – I’ll have to pick it up again.
I hope you have a chance. Let me know what you think!
