Angelika and Heather: The books you nominated have already been nominated, so your nominations don't count. Would you like to nominate something else.

Everyone: please note that duplicate nominations do not help a book at all! It's not a vote. We consider each book nominated on its own merits. So please check the previous nominations before you nominate! Otherwise, you could be wasting your nomination. Thanks!

Rats Saw God, by Rob Thomas

Leah Burnson

by Stephenie Meyer

Sheila Ruth

Brooke, it's not just books published in the U.S. Books published in English anywhere in the world are eligible (as long as we can get copies to the panelists to evaluate them). They do have to be 2007 books, though.

Andrea Ross

"The Call to Shakabaz" by Amy Wachspress

Molly Blaisdell

Dragon's Keep by Janet Lee Carey

Kimber An

GAMES OF COMMAND by Linnea Sinclair

Kimber An

My nominee GAMES OF COMMAND is an adult book, not Young Adult. So, if this is restricted to YA and younger, you should remove it.

Sheila Ruth

Hi Kimber,

Yes, nominees should be YA or younger. We realize that there are many crossover books, but we really want to recognize the excellence in writing that exists in the children's and YA areas.

Do you want to nominate something else?

Lena Coakley

Peeps by Scott Westerfield


Jinx by Meg Cabot

Lena Coakley

Oops. Sorry, that wasn't 2007. Instead I will nominate Darkwing by Kenneth Oppel.


The Titan's Curse, Rick Riordan

Deck Deckert

"The Gift of the Unmage" (Worldweavers #1) by Alma Alexander

Deck Deckert

"The Gift of the Unmage" (Worldweavers #1) by Alma Alexander

The Bibliophile

The King of Attolia, Megan Whalen Turner

The Bibliophile

D'oh! Just realized that my choice was actually published in hardcover in 2006...How about Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale.


Into the Wild by Sarah Beth Durst


First Light by Rebecca Stead

Sarah (a. fortis)

The Land of the Silver Apples by Nancy Farmer

Mark Blevis

Kendra Kandlestar and the Door to Unger by Lee Edward Fodi.


Gray/Guardians by Kathy Porter


Gray/Guardians by Kathy Porter


Tattoo by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Anne-Marie - A Readable Feast

Defect by Will Weaver, though maybe this is more in the YA fiction category?


I'm smart. Rats Saw God belongs in YA fiction. Can I nominate "Blood Bound" by Patricia Briggs instead?

Gina MarySol Ruiz

Not sure if King of Attolia qualifies but if it does - that's my nom


"Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer should be nominated

Sheila Ruth

Anne-Marie, I haven't read Defect, but from the description it does sound like it belongs here.

Peter, thanks for changing your nomination. Not only does Rats Saw God belong in YA, but it was also originally published in 1996, so it isn't eligible anyway.

Gina, I'm really sorry, but King of Attolia was published last year, so it isn't eligible. Would you like to nominate something else?

Beppie, Twilight wasn't published this year, so it isn't eligible, and Eclipse has already been nominated. Is there another book that you'd like to nominate?

Thanks to everyone for the nominations! Keep 'em coming!


Skulduggery Pleasant! I can't believe it's not on here yet :)
