Contest over at Project Mayhem: Win One of my Favorite Cybils' nominees

This year marked my third venture as a Cybils (Children's and Young Adult Blogger's Literary Awards) panelist. In 2011 I was a first round panelist for middle grade fiction (everything except speculative fiction), which meant I got to speed-read 140 novels between October and December. In 2012 and 2013, I chose a more sedate position--that of a second round judge. A second-rounder has to read a mere five or six titles--those on the shortlist--and crown a winner.

This year, the finalists were: 

If you head over to my post on Project Mayhem this morning, you can find out how to win one of these titles!! Here's the link:


  1. Hooray! So many good books. Are you going to participate in Deb's Middle Grade March?

  2. Thanks for doing the heavy lifting on the sorting of the books. The only one of these I've read is Serafina's Promise. It is lovely. I'll put the others on my TBR list.


Youse got something to say? Well, say it then. (The Don and I will shoot you... a personal reply, that is. But if we can't find your e-mail, we'll just reply in the comment box.)
