  1. Congrats to being a judge. I know you'll be awesome.

    1. Aww, thanks Natalie. It's my favorite part of the season, looking at what gets nominated and the challenge of reading as many as I can. 🙂

  2. How exciting--not only the Cybils in general, but especially you getting to be a part of it! Congrats. :)

  3. So exciting to see the list of judges. Congrats on being a judge! I see a few other blogging friends on the list too. :) Good luck with all your reading!

    1. Thank you Jess, looking forward to tearing down that TBR list.

  4. Congratulations! I've never participated in a Cybils, so I'll have to keep tabs on it this year.

    1. It's lots of fun, you should think about it sometime. Lots of reading but also lots of fun talking books. There is a ton of categories too. Even audiobooks this year.
