Librarian List Love! UPDATED
This week the American Library Association released many of its best-of lists for books published in 2011, and I’m super thrilled that Huntress landed on three of those lists!
2012 Best Fiction for Young Adults — “The books, recommended for ages 12-18, meet the criteria of both good quality literature and appealing reading for teens. The list comprises a wide range of genres and styles, including contemporary realistic fiction, fantasy, horror, historical fiction and novels in verse.”
2012 Amelia Bloomer Project List — Recommended Feminist Literature for Birth through 18
A Top 10 Selection of the 2012 Rainbow List — Recommended GLBTQ Books for Children and Teens
Thanks so much to all the librarians who read Huntress and supported it for these lists. I’m very honored. And congratulations to all the other fabulous books on these lists!
UPDATED 1/31/12: I just found out that Huntress also made it onto the Chicago Public Library’s Best of the Best Books for Teens. This is so thrilling! I love Chicago!
