2011 Cybils Middle Grade Fiction

I'm thrilled to be able to say that I will be a first round judge for the 2011 Cybils Middle Grade Fiction division! Being on the committee for middle grade science fiction and fantasy last year was not only tremendously fun but really interesting. There were so many great books and so many great bloggers! I'm really excited to be working with the following: hop on over and visit them. You might find a good new source for recommendations!

Round One:
Colby Sharp of Sharp Read

Jennifer Donovan of 5 Minutes for Books

Cheryl Vanati of Reading Rumpus

Grier Jewell of Fizzwhizzing Flushbunker

Michael Gettel-Gilmartin of Middle Grade Mafioso

Beth Gallego of Points West

Round Two:

Kerry Millar (also organizer!) of Shelf Elf

Melissa Fox of Book Nut

Jessalyn Pinsonault of Garish & Tweed

Karen Wang of Kidsmomo

Amanda Snow of A Patchwork of Books


  1. Congrats! Kerry and I arm wrestled for you, and she won. :) Any time you want to come back to SFF, I'd love to have you.

  2. I'm excited to be on the same panel as you, Ms. Yingling!

  3. Hi Karen,

    I've sent you a few Cybils related emails and I was wondering if you received them (about the Yahoo group / database)? If not, maybe they are in your junk folder or were marked as spam.

    Let me know if I need to resend. I just don't want you to feel like you've missed action since things are getting going.
