The 2018 Cybils Finalists!

It’s January 1st, our favorite day of the year: The day in which all round one panelists breathe a huge sigh of relief (and we express our heartfelt thanks!), and which everyone (from the authors and illustrators to the fans to the round two judges) eagerly watches to see what’s made the cut.Β 

First off — because we know you’re curious — we have some stats for you. We had 1335 books nominated across all categories (that’s a LOT for round one panelists to read!), and 99.8% of them were read by 1 panelist. 98.4% of them were read by two or more. That’s a quick way to say a lot of people put in a lot of time to make sure almost every book was read!Β 

And so, without further ado, here are the 2018 Cybils Finalists! Congrats to all!
