Cybils YA/MG 2010 Shortlists

The Children's and Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards posted their 2010 shortlists ! These are the books the Round 1 Panelists felt not only had distinguished writing but kid-appeal too.

I'm a panelist in the YA category so won't talk much about these books.

Young Adult (as listed)
  1. Dirt Road Home by Watt Key
  2. Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly
  3. I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan
  4. Scrawl by Mark Shulman
  5. Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
  6. Split by Swati Avasthi
  7. Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Two of these books are on my Goodreads Mock Printz shelf but I've only read one on the list.  I must say, there are some major upsets in this category.  The Amazing Dancer, aged 15, has read 3 on the list!

Other Young Adult Categories: Young Adult Science Fiction/Fantasy, Young Adult Graphic Novels

Middle Grades (as listed)
  1. Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea
  2. Belly Up by Stuart Gibbs
  3. Betti on the High Wire by Lisa Railsback
  4. Crunch by Leslie Connor
  5. Milo: Sticky Notes and Brain Freeze by Alan Silberberg
  6. The Kneebone Boy by Ellen Potter
  7. The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger
I fared a little better in this category, having read three of the seven and have quite a few on my Goodreads Mock Newbery Shelf.

Other Middle Grades Categories - Middle Grades Science Fiction/Fantasy, Middle Grades Graphic Novels

Other Reading Stats: YA SF/F - 1, YA Graphic - 2, MG SF/F - 4, MG Graphic - 2, Easy Reader - 0, Fiction Picture - 0, NF Picture - 1, Poetry - 3, MG/YA Nonfiction - 0

Stop by The Cybils and take a look at all the categories.  How many have you read?

There are many fantastic books here that would make a great addition to any library!
