January 18th, 2015 by

Cybils-Logo-2014-Round-Lg-300x300Do you know what the Cybils Awards are? Well, you should — because we talked all about them in our blog post from last week and you should be memorizing every word on!

But for those of you who are slacking, here’s a re-cap:

“The Cybils Awards aims to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal.”

Last week, we let you know the finalists in this year’s competition. Well, some of the judges have been talking about “the ones that got away” — the books that they wish could have made the cut. So we figured you might want to add these often-mentioned almost-finalists to your To Read list too:
