2010 Challenge #2: Cybils

Since the nominations for this year’s Cybils opens tomorrow (go nominate books!!), I figured now was as a good time as any to wrap up Michelle at Galley Smith‘s Cybils challenge! Sure, it goes until the end of the year, and I’m going to try and get to the few that I missed, but for the most part, I’m moving on.

Here’s what I was able to find to read (the ones I didn’t get to, for the most part, were because my library — shame on them — didn’t have them):

Blue Plate Special, Michelle D. Kwasney
Carter Finally Gets It, Brent Crawford
Cracked Up to Be, Courtney Summers*
How to Say Goodbye in Robot, Natalie Standiford
Into the Wild Nerd Yonder, Julie Halpern
North of Beautiful, Justina Chen
Wintergirls, Laurie Halse Anderson

(The library has Wild Nerd Yonder, so I’ll probably read that sooner or later.)

MG Sci-Fi/Fantasy:
11 Birthdays, Wendy Mass
Dreamdark: Silksinger, Laini Taylor*
The Farwalker’s Quest, Joni Sensel
Odd and the Frost Giants, Neil Gaiman
The Prince of Fenway Park, Juliana Baggott
The Serial Garden: The Complete Armitage Family Stories, Joan Aiken
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon, Grace Lin

YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy:
Candor, Pam Bachorz
The Demon’s Lexicon, Sarah Rees Brennan
The Dust of 100 Dogs, A. S. King
Fire, Kristin Cashore*
Lips Touch Three Times, Laini Taylor
Sacred Scars, Kathleen Duey
Tiger Moon, Antonia Michaelis

(The library has Sacred Scars, and, in Graphic Novel, YA, Gunnerkrigg Court: Research, but as both of these are seconds in a series, and the library doesn’t have the first, I probably won’t read either.)

Graphic Novel, Middle Grade:
Creepy Crawly Crime, Aaron Reynolds
Adventures in Cartooning: How to turn your doodles into comics, James Sturm
The Stonekeepers Curse, Kazu Kibuishi
The Secret Science Alliance and the Copycat Curse, Eleanor Davis*
Frankie Pickle and the Closet of Doom, Eric Wight

Graphic Novel, YA:
The Dreamer: The Consequence of Nathan Hale (Part 1), Lora Innes
Gunnerkrigg Court: Orientatiom, Tom Siddell*
Crogan’s Vengence, Chris Schweizer
Edgar Allen Poe’s Tales of Death and Dementia, Edgar Allen Poe
Outlaw: The Legend of Robin Hood, Tony Lee

Wow, my library is terrible at getting YA graphic novels. Wonder who I should speak to about this?

YA Non-Fiction:
Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice, Phillip Hoose
The Frog Scientist, Pamela S. Turner*
I Can’t Keep My Own Secrets, Larry Smith
Marching For Freedom: Walk Together Children and Don’t You Grow Weary, Elizabeth Partridge
Written in Bone, Sally M. Walker

*2009 winners.
