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!

  8. I was so excited to see who'd won. I'm glad Fire won, but I loved almost all the books. So I wanted them all to win!

  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.

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.

It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

Cover Reveal + Q&A: A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White

As longtime readers of the blog know, I am a full-fledged Ellen Emerson White fangirl and have been for something going on time immemorial. What this means is that a few years ago, having just finished reading my local library's copy of The Road Homefor the second time in as many days, I sat on the couch, brandished the book at my newlywed husband, and told him I was seriously considering never returning it (my conscience did eventually kick in and I meekly returned the library copy—after managing to procure a copy of my own, naturally). 
What this means is I went on to purchase an obscene number of out of print copies of the same title(before it was available as an e-book) and proceeded to send them winging their way across the globe to homes where I knew they were needed. 
What this means is that I refer to Ms. White's characters by their first names in casual conversation (pretty much on a daily basis) with friends and family members, and they automatically know exactly wh…
