Making lists and checking them twice...

It is that time. The best lists are beginning to surface. We already have the Long list for he National Book Award and the Shortlist as well.



A few days ago, the New York Times posted its list of top picture books for the year: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/10/28/books/review/28-new-york-times-best-illustrated-childrens-books-of-2015.html?_r=0.

And now Publisher's Weekly (PW) has weighed in. Here are links to their top picks:

YA: http://best-books.publishersweekly.com/pw/best-books/2015/young-adult n
Note that Nimona, Challenger Deep, and Bone Gap are also finalists for the NBA.

MIDDLE GRADE: http://best-books.publishersweekly.com/pw/best-books/2015/middle-grade
Note: The Thing about Jellyfish and Most Dangerous are also finalists for the National Book Award.

PICTURE BOOKS: http://best-books.publishersweekly.com/pw/best-books/2015/picture-books

One final link for now. Kate Messner posts this blog each year as the lists begin to emerge. It is must reading as well: kate messner what happened to your book today?
