The Sunday Salon - Someday My Printz Will Come - November 29, 2010

I've posted a lot about the Mock Newbery clubs I'm participating in as they occupy a lot of my time.  I haven't done as much for the Mock Printz clubs because one is online at Goodreads and the irl one has been reading on their own and won't meet until January 5th or so.

But, as I try to line up and complete all my reading in time to judge the second round of YA for The Cybils, I find a need to discuss.  

Books I've Read in Search of Printz
  1. Finnikin of the Rock by Marchetta
  2. Incarceron by Fisher
  3. Before I Fall by Oliver
  4. The Woods Runner by Paulsen (more Newberyish?)
  5. A Conspiracy of Kings by Turner (more Newberyish?)
  6. After the Kiss by McVoy
  7. Sweet, Hereafter by Johnson
  8. Happyface by Emond
  9. She's So Dead to Us by Scott
  10. Cardturner by Sachar (more Newberyish?)

  24. Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin by Berk

  36. Lockdown by Myers
  37. Yummy by Neri
  38. Revolution by Donnelly
  39. Dirt Road Home by Key
Ok, how many of these have you read?  Which do you think has the best chance? 

I still have a few more to read like
  1. Please Ignore Vera Dietz by King
  2. Matched by Condie
  3. The Things a Brother Knows by Reinhardt
  4. The Marbury Lens by Smith
  5. Pegasus by McKinley
  6. Trash by Mulligan
Are there books I'm missing?  What books do you think meet the Printz criteria?


  1. This list takes my breath away. Good job. No, great job.

    And since I've only read one on the list, I'd have to exclude myself from the judging on this.

    Here's my Sunday Salon post:

  2. holy Cow! You've been busy! :O) I've only managed to get to Mockingjay, this year (eh, lukewarm on it). I REALLY need to read Matched and Revolution. This is such a great list and makes me realize how little YA I've read, this year. Bad me!


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
