...hunh. Going Bovine by Libba Bray is the 2010 Michael Printz Award winner?!
I am ONLY surprised because I picked it up a few months back, read 80 pages and just wasn't into it. I am a huge fan of her Gemma Doyle series. And it wasn't that she had written something entirely different, as I enjoy all types of fiction. Maybe it was just the wrong time for me to pick it up. I will totally be giving it another go, though. Which I had intended to do anyway. The Printz award will speed this up for me, though.
And Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey is a 2010 Honor Book. I have to also admit that I am halfway through this one and thought I might not go back to it. For no reason in particular. Again, it could be that I'm just not that into it right now. I'll finish Monstrumologist off, though.
Punkzilla by Adam Rapp is also an Honor Book. I haven't read this one. I love the title, though! ...*checks* OH! We have it at the store! Yoink...Hunh, creepy cover.
And I don't know anything about the other two Honor Books, Charles and Emma by Deborah Heiligman and Tales of the Madman Underground by John Barnes.
Surprises? I would have loved to see Hate List by Jennifer Brown win something. I just really liked it.
What do you think of the list? (Complete Info Here)
