Cybils Awards announced today and the YA winners are:

The 2014 Cybils were announced today, Valentine's Day, which is a great day to have some extra book love.  The Cybils (Children's and Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards) are voted on by representatives from the book blogging world. It is very refreshing that the Cybils committee often recognises books not recognized by other award organizations.

Check out their page for the announcement and for descriptions of each book and why it won the Cybils award here.

Young Adult Categories:

Fiction: Pointe by Brandy Colbert

Graphic Novel: In Real Life by Cory Doctorow, illustrated by Jen Wang

Nonfiction: The Family Romanov by Candace Fleming

Speculative Fiction: The Living by Matt De La Pena

Congratulations to all the winners and now I had better get busy reading these books.

  1. I love the covers of Pointe and In Real Life. I haven't read any graphic novels aside from Manga, but I've wanted to. Perhaps this will be my first, and if not it's def going on the TBR.
