National Book Award Nominees!

Today was chaotic at school and I missed the National Book Awards nominees announcements!  Thankfully, my twitter friends reminded me as I began to see the hashtag popping up. And then I almost let out a scream when I saw that one of my favorite books of the year was nominated!  I reviewed Eliot Schrefer’s Endangered last month and I haven’t stopped raving about it since.  Congratulations to Eliot on his National Book Award nomination!  Now get out there a pick up a copy before everyone else beats you to it!

The other nominees are now on their way to my house.  I haven’t read the rest of the Young People’s Literature Award nominees yet, and some of them aren’t even published as of this date, but they are now pre-ordered.  The list runs the age gamut, from a recommended 8+ to upper-YA. I’m excited to read them!

Nominees:

I also ordered a few of the adult nominees.  John Green and Penny Kittle both recommended the nonfiction nominee Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity. Plus, I somehow never added Junot Diaz’s books to my library.

What are you looking forward to reading form this year’s nominees?
