December 2013 Round-up

Another year gone, another Cybils season ended. My panel is got together (virtually, of course) to decide/finalize our shortlists yesterday.I’m excited; I love this part of the process and we have a great shortlist! Though I think I’m going to take a bit of a break from middle grade fantasy. I have both S. and The Rosie Project on tap right now.

My favorite this month was one of the middle grade ones, but since that’d give away some of our shortlist, I’m going to pick my other favorite:

Just One Year

I’m a sucker for a romance that takes me all over the world.

As for the rest:

Middle Grade:

The Garden Princess
How to Catch a Bogle
How I Became a Ghost
The Screaming Staircase
The Lost Heir
Magic Marks the Spot 
Parched
The Real Boy
Rose
Sidekicked
Sky Jumpers
What We Found in the Sofa
and How it Saved the World
The True Blue Scouts of Sugarman Swamp
The Vengekeep Prophecies
The Wells Bequest
The Year of Shadows

YA:

The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender

Adult:

Absolution by Murder
Longbourn (audio)

Stay tuned for my best of the year post tomorrow and then the Cybils shortlists on Wednesday. And then 2014! Wow. The question is: how long will it take me to remember to write ’14 as the date?
