Making lists and checking them twice
I have added more than a dozen more "best" lists to the spreadsheet I am compiling of YA books receiving nods as best of 2014. There are quite a few books that appear on more than one list so far. I will hold off posting the top list-making books until January 1, though. In the meantime, be sure to visit the Nerdy Bok Club blog to see which books have been named as Nerdies for 2014. The list of fiction (http://nerdybookclub.wordpress.com/2014/12/26/2014-nerdy-awards-for-fiction-picture-books-announced-by-teri-lesesne/) and nonfiction (http://nerdybookclub.wordpress.com/2014/12/27/2014-nerdy-awards-for-non-fiction-picture-books-announced-by-cindy-minnich/) picture books have already been posted. Be on the lookout for more lists of Nerdies from now until the beginning of the New Year.
