Holy wow. The Girl of Fire and Thorns is a 2011 Cybils Award Nominee for Young Adult Fantasy and Science Fiction. This award is administered by children’s book bloggers and seeks to marry critical merit with audience appeal. I couldn’t be more pleased. Huge thanks to all the committee members–the amount of work they do is astounding–and to Hallie Tibbets, who nominated the book in the first place.
I’m really excited to see Blood Red Road and The Shattering on the list, too–I loved those books. Can’t wait to read the others.
Happy New Year, everyone!
