It's Edgar nominee time! Here is the full list of nominees; I've pasted the YA and MG ones below.

As in previous years, I'm planning to read all before the awards announcement May 2, and will let you know my predictions. It's fun, so join in if you like....

13 Hangmen by Art Corriveau (Abrams – Amulet Books)
The Quick Fix by Jack D. Ferraiolo (Abrams – Amulet Books)

  1. Boo, you should totally be on the list! I call re-do!!!!!

  2. Hehe, you're too nice :-) My book is more thriller than mystery anyway, and I'm actually looking forward to reading these. Several I haven't heard of...

  3. I think I will join you in trying to get them read--I feel poorly read in the mystery side of things. I have only read three of these, and some I had never even heard of before (The Quick Fix, and Emily's Dress, and the Edge of Nowhere).
