Absolutely THRILLED at the news yesterday that two of my FAVORITE books from last year won AWARDS!! The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), announced that Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell and The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay were among the award winners.
Congrats to Rainbow on her Printz Honor for excellence in Young Adult Literature and Odyssey Honor for excellence in Audiobook Production. Many congratulations also go to Katja on her Alex Award. The Sea of Tranquility was one of ten adult books chosen with special appeal to teen readers.
If you have not read these two books, drop everything and read them now. You won’t regret it!
