The 2014 Cybils winners were announced earlier today! I’m afraid I haven’t been a very good Armchair Cybils hostess this year; I’ve had too many other things on my plate to read even half of the books I requested from the library. Ah, well. That just means there’s more to look forward to reading, right?
Of the winners, I’ve read two, but I’ve only reviewed one:
- Shh! We Have a Plan by Christ Haughton, winner of the fiction picture book category, is the one I did review. Although it wasn’t my top pick, I do think it’s one that would grow on me upon subsequent readings. I think it deserves a second look from me if for no other reason than the fact that it’s a nod to Tomi Ungerer’s The Three Robbers, which is something I learned in the brief review on the Cybils award page.
- The elementary/middle grade nonfiction winner, Feathers; Not Just for Flying by Melissa Stewart, is one that I had in my possession for at least a month and actually read but never got around to reviewing. I really like it.
- Of all the winners I haven’t read, the one I’m most likely to read is the middle grade fiction winner, Nickel Bay Nick by Dean Pitchford. The reason? I actually picked it up at the library today. 🙂 We’ll see how that time management thing goes. . . 😉
So how did you fare in this year’s Cybils? Did any of your top picks win? Please link up your Cybils reviews or posts below, or share in the comments!
Thanks for reading along with me!
