Canadian Children's Book Centre Award Finalists

This week, the finalists for the 2013 Canadian Children's Book Centre Awards were announced! These prestigious Canadian book awards are presented in October.  Congratulations to all the nominated authors and illustrators!

This year, there will also be a chance for kids to vote for their favourite from a selection of shortlisted titles for the TD Canadian Children's Literature Fan Choice Award

I was excited to see that a couple of the books I've enjoyed this year as part of my 100 book challenge are up for awards:

The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. LarsenNeil Flambé and the Tokyo TreasureMaking Bombs for HitlerSeraphina

And even more exciting, there are other books I haven't read yet! I've been looking for more good middle grade and YA reads. These ones caught my eye:

Shadows Cast by StarsYesterday's DeadViolins of AutumnKids of KabulRescuing the ChildrenOne Year in Coal Harbour

I've also heard a lot about this picture book, but I haven't read it yet:

The Stamp Collector

Actually, all the rest of them look good too. I guess it's off to the library for me this weekend! If you have any other recommendations for me, I'm always on the lookout for good middle grade and YA books to read!
