Calling all readers of kiddie and young adult books: The Cybils need your help!

The Cybils are the Children and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards and are the annual prizes to the best in youth literature, as determined by the book blogging community.

We accept nominations in 13 categories:

  • Book Apps
  • Easy Readers/Short Chapter Books
  • Fantasy & Science Fiction: Elementary/Middle Grade & Young Adult
  • Fiction Picture Books
  • Graphic Novels: Elementary/Middle Grade & Young Adult
  • Middle Grade Fiction
  • Non-Fiction Picture Books
  • Non-Fiction: Middle Grade & Young Adult
  • Poetry
  • Young Adult Fiction

Which is where you come in. We need nominations. We’re looking for what you consider to be among the best books you’ve read or apps you’ve used in the last year. To be considered, a book/app has to have been published in the U.S. between Oct. 16, 2011, and Oct. 15, 2012. (Online booksellers and sites like Goodreads usually list publication dates, if you’re unsure about whether a title qualifies.)

You can only nominate one title per category, but it’s not necessary to second a nomination that’s already been made, which could be helpful if you’re torn between a couple titles in a single category.

Also, you don’t need to have a blog to nominate a book or app. You just need to have liked it.

I, of course, am particularly interested in your recent young adult fiction titles, but I’ll be interested to see what titles get nominated in the other categories, too.

Nominations opened today and run through Oct. 15.

Thanks for your help!
