Congratulations Carrie Jones!

Not only did Carrie have three books published this year, but ALL of them were nominated for the Cybils Awards! This might be a first.

Love (And Other Uses for Duct Tape) and Girl Hero have both been nominated in the YA Category; Need (fantasy) was also nominated, but isn't eligible until next year because of its late 2008 publication date.

I have a soft spot for Carrie's oeuvre because Tips on Having a Gay (Ex) Boyfriend was the first book I read last year for the Cybils when I was on the YA panel, and I fell hard for Tom.

So congratulations Carrie!

If you haven't nominated your own YA favorite, Becky has posted a handy list of really good 2008 books that haven't made it yet...


  1. I'm still waiting for someone to nominate Stealing Heaven so Elizabeth Scott will have all three of her eligible books nominated in the same category. I definitely think it's good enough to warrant a nom.


  2. It seems like a lot of us are wondering when favorite books are going to make the list--perhaps because of the shorter nomination period??? I haven't read any of Scott's 2008 books, but probably I am going to need diversion from Sci Fi/fantasy soonish, and I will keep her in mind!
