- The LA Times Book Awards were announced. Terry Pratchett's Nation*won the YA prize. The YA runners up -- two of which I just added to my TBR list -- are at the bottom of this list.
- The Nebula Award winners, and a YA novel won in the Best Novel category! Nice. And Flora's Dare won the Andre Norton. I can't believe I haven't gotten to that one yet. I loved the first one.
- One of the winners of the Tiptree Award also a YA book(and another one I haven't read yet, damnit). Tons of info-- including the full honors list, where there are many more YA titles -- at Gwenda's.
- The Shirley Jackson shortlist has been released, with Tender Morsels in the running for Best Novel.
- Not exactly a book award, but related: Steph Bowe at Hey, Teenager of the Year is going forward with her blog award, so stop by, vote and discover some new feeds for your reader.
*No, I still haven't read it. But I'm starting to feel that I should. It's just that I haven't had a ton of luck with his books**, and I figure that he's already got a bazillion and six cheerleaders, so... you know. I'd rather read stuff that I'm more likely to enjoy. But maybe I've just been picking the wrong titles.
