Nominate These Books!

Yep, we've got a few more lists from panelists who are saying please, PLEASE don't miss these great books when you go to nominate. There are definitely some in here that I'm surprised haven't been nominated yet, so if you've been waiting around for those worthy not-yet-nommed titles, here's what you've been waiting for.

  • Karen Jensen, a Round 1 SFF judge over at Teen Librarian's Toolbox, has a wishlist that includes book 3 of 2o1o Cybils winner Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry–not yet nominated! (As of her post, anyway.)
  • We've got app wish lists–BOY, have we got app wish lists! There's a 4-part series over at Digital Media Diet (put up by Round 1 Book Apps judge Carissa Kluver) here, here, here, and here, and Paula Willey over at Pink Me has a list here (which has some amazing math and science titles on it).
  • There are more SFF books to be nominated, too! Check out the list from Round 1 teen SFF panelist Kim Baccellia and one more list from Charlotte Taylor (including a title from Artemis Fowl creator Eoin Colfer!).

Me, I always wait until the last day or so, and then I try to pop in some of these neglected titles that are either books I've personally loved or that someone else has serious book lust for. It's especially helpful in categories I don't have as much experience with, like book apps (sigh…one day I'll get an iPad…) or poetry. So if you're like me, you'll want to take a gander at these lists. Also, check out our previous list posts here and here.
