The Cybils are awards given each year by bloggers for the year’s best children’s and young adult titles. I’m lucky enough this year to be a round 2 judge for the Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy category, which means I get to help choose the top book in this category for 2012. It’s a really exciting opportunity and I’m looking forward to reading all the shortlisted books when they’re announced on 1 January 2013.
You can get involved by voting for your favourite in each category – Book Apps, Easy Readers/Short Chapter Books, Fantasy and Science Fiction, Fiction Picture Books, Graphic Novels, Middle Grade Fiction, Non-Fiction Picture Books, Non-Fiction: Middle Grade and Young Adult, Poetry, and Young Adult Fiction. You can vote from today until 15 October and any English or bilingual books published in the U.S. or Canada between Oct. 16, 2011 and Oct. 15, 2012 are eligible.
Anyone can vote and all you have to do to vote is go to www.cybils.com and fill out the form.
