2009 Cybils Winners announced

The Cybils are literary awards judged by children's and YA bloggers (one of which is not me, unfortunately.) The 2009 recipients are listed here and I agree with some of the winners. Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games for YA Fiction (SF/F), obviously, had my vote. And, not surprisingly, Newbery winner The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman took the middle grade SF/F category.

I personally would have voted for Every Soul a Star for Middle Grade Fiction. I tried to read The London Eye a few months back and just couldn't get into it. I'm sure it's a great book and nothing against Siobhan Dowd at all, just didn't do it for me. Plus, Wendy Mass just happens to be one of my favorite authors, so I may be a bit biased on that category ;)

Other winners were Mo Willems,  Shannon and Dean Hale, and E Lockhart. See all the winners.

Congrats to everyone!
