Good morning! Here’s what I found in my blog (and other online media) reading this week; please let me know of anything I missed.
But first–Nominations for this year’s Cybils Awards are now open
(till Oct 15). Eligible books are those published in the US or Canada between Oct 16 2020 and Oct 15 2021. Nominating a book for the Cybils is a great way to show love and support (and authors of pandemic times books need even more love and support than usual). I’ve put asterixs next to eligible Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction books that haven’t been nominated….
*The Cursed Carnival and Other Calamities, edited by Rick Riordan, at Hypable
*Finn and the Time-Travelling Pajamas, by Michael Buckley, at Charlotte’s Library
*The Great Bear (The Misewa Saga #2), by David A. Robertson, at Jill’s Book Blog
Much Ado About Baseball, by Rajani LaRocca, at Fuse #8
Over the Woodward Wall, by A. Deborah Baker (Seanan McGuire) at How Useful It Is
Two at The Book Search
–Once Upon a Camel by Kathi Appelt, and Pax a Journey Home, by Sara Pennypacker
Three at A little but a lot– Dragon City, by Katie and Kevin Tsang, *The Raven Heir, by Stephanie Burgis, and Ghostcloud, by Micheal Mann
*Adam Borba (The Midnight Brigade), at MG Book Village
*Aisling Fowler (Fireborn) at Peters
And finally, just a few more books that haven’t been nominated for the Cybils yet to keep in mind (I always get really really anxious that great books won’t be nominated, so instead of making a huge list of just about every eligible book, I’m going to try to stick to five today)–
Dragon Legend by Katie Tsang and Kevin Tsang
Guardians of Porthaven by Shane Arbuthnott
