Fall is in the air, well at least it feels like it today with our temperature being 30 degrees, brrr. Fall's also one of my favorite time's of the year because it means that Cybils book nominations opened last week and I love seeing all the books that get nominated. I hope you'll consider nominating your favorites in children and YA published in the U.S. or Canada between October 15, 2016, to October 15th, 2017 (one book nomination per Category per person). Nominations will only stay open until October 15th, so don't delay.
There are lots of different categories to choose from and you can get more information here. I'd especially love to see more nominations in the elementary/mg speculative fiction category! And here's the category description from Charlotte Taylor:
"This past year has seen another excellent crop of wonderfully inventive speculative fiction books for kids! Along with the expected spells and space rockets and aliens, this is the category for books with talking animals, time-travel, ghosts, and paranormal abilities, and all the other books that might not have obvious magic on every page, and which are set here on Earth, but which push past the boundaries of daily life into what is almost certainly impossible.
Might a suggest a possible few? Or twenty, okay twenty, but I have to stop there. Some I've read and others I would like to read. I hope I'm right on them all being in the correct nominations range, and I'm sure I've missed a bunch published after October 15th, 2016 but I still hope you'll nominate your favorites!
