The Cybils 2007

So the wicked awesome people over at the Cybils were kind enough to give me a slot on the judging panel for the Graphic Novels category! I'm just a tad bit excited. Okay, I walked around with a dumb grin on my face all day. The coolest thing (apart from the free books and extreme blogability) is the illustrious company I'm in. Just look at their blogs. My kind of people.

In case you're wondering, the Cybils are the Children's and YA Bloggers' Literary Awards. A first on the internet, they reside somewhere between the Newbery and the Quills. More about them here. The nominations begin October 1st so make sure to head on over and nominate your favorite books of 2007 in the following categories: Young Adult Fiction; Fantasy/Science Fiction; Graphic Novels; Middle Grade Fiction; Poetry; Picture Books; Non-fiction Picture Books; and Non-fiction (YA/MG). Anyone with an email address can nominate one book in each category, so don't miss out. More to come as the nominations pour in.

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings.

After managing to get my hands on an ARC, I found myself surprised and pleased with this unique fantasy. You can read my review here . As the release date approached, I invited Alex to participate in an interview and giveaway here on the site and, despite her crazy busy schedule, she kindly accepted. Enjoy! First things first: When did the idea for Brightly Woven first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? I remember the exact moment it hit me—what I was doing, who I was talking to, what song was playing on iTunes.  :)  I had just come back from Winter Break my sophomore year in college and was sitting on my bed chatting with my mom.  Sophomore year was pretty remarkable in terms of the insane weather that we had in Virginia (where I was in school) but it had also been a bizarre year in
