Fire won the Cybils!!

Fire won the Cybils!! And, uh, several other extremely wonderful books and you should go check out the list of winners posted yesterday if you haven't yet. I served on the YA Fantasy & Science Fiction panel and pulled really hard for Fire. I'm so happy to see such a gorgeous book win such an awesome award. Congrats, Ms. Cashore and a big round of applause for the other nominated titles and authors, the hard-working panelists, judges, and organizers!

  9. Elizabeth, lol! Sometimes it just takes you that way. I read FIRE at the perfect moment, but don't push it. Wait till you're feeling it and then see how the rest of it goes.

    Janice, *nods* I thought you might.

    Vanessa, *highfive*

    Chachic, I wasn't expecting anything near the sheer awesome of FIRE after the greatness of GRACELING. My hat's off to her.

    Michelle, I was really holding my breath. So pleased.

    Sami, it was hard enough narrowing it down to those final few, wasn't it? From there it would have been really tough.

    Liza, indeed.

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available.
