From this list, one award book and two honor books will be chosen. Any predictions? I can't really say because I've only read one of the books on the list so far, Jackaby. Add your predictions or discussion to the comments. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Reading!


  1. Like you, I've only read one book on this list and that was Faking Normal, which I thought was very well done. It dealt with a difficult subject matter and was written very emotionally. As for who I think will win - I predict We Were Liars b/c it's been getting a ton of praise & it's a literary contemporary which seems to win awards, like Eleanor & Park, last year's winner.

    I really want to read Jackaby. Did you enjoy it?

  2. You're right about the contemporaries winning.The previous year the winner was The Fault in Our Stars, but the year before that was Divergent. So there is some variety possible. As for Jackaby, yes I did enjoy it. My review for Jackaby is here Followed back. =0)
