Cybils 2017 Finalists

Today the 2017 Cybils (Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards) finalists are announced! I’m ready to kick into gear in my role as a round two judge in the middle grade speculative fiction category. Mark @ Say What?, Halli @ The Winged Pen, Rosemary @ Mom Read It, Brenda @ Log Cabin Library and myself will deliberate to decide which of the following finalists will be named the category winner:

  • The Girl with the Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burgis
  • A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge
  • The Countdown Conspiracy by Katie Slivensky
  • Last Day on Mars by Kevin Emerson
  • A Properly Unhaunted Place by William Alexander
  • Spirit Hunters by Ellen Oh
  • Miss Ellicott’s School For the Magically Minded by Sage Blackwood

You can read more about each book in blurbs written by the round one judges on the Cybils website. Winners will be announced on February 14. There are 12 other categories (including picture books, young adult, and audiobooks) so be sure to check those out too.
