Youth Media Awards

Aka, the Newbery, Caldecott, etc.

These were culled from twitter, and are posted as is, so that people can see the list quickly. Note that they didn't announce Honor Books on Twitter. The press release will be up at the YMA page soon.

* = books I read. I did not finish Going Bovine - the hallucinations defeated me. Most of these titles were pretty predictable in retrospect.

^ = books I've been meaning to read.

The fact that I've read two books on the Alex (Adult books for YA readers) top ten astounds me.
