YALSA awards

I am home.

So, New York City ComiCon was fast-paced and awesome and exciting, and I have some great pictures and stories to tell involving the flu and costumes and Bumblebee from Transformers. But I will get to them later.

I did want to share THIS:






The Iron King made #5 on YALSA's top ten! How incredibly awesome is that? I can hardly believe I'm up there with authors like Suzanne Collins and Cassie Clare. Eep, I say. Double eep.

Here is the full list, and congrats to the winners and the nominees. If you happen to talk or tweet at one of these authors, be sure to congratulated them, too!


1. The Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (Simon & Schuster)

2. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (Scholastic)

3. Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick (Simon & Schuster)

4. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore (HarperCollins)

5. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (Harlequin)

6. Matched by Ally Condie (Penguin)

7. Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel by James Patterson (Little, Brown & Company)

8. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White (HarperCollins)

9. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (HarperCollins)

10. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (Penguin)

  4. I love that The Iron King is there and every thing but I couldn't help screaming in annoyance when I saw that Angel is up there. It says it is a Maximum Ride Novel but it doesn't deserve to have that attached to its name. That book should be burned. It is a disgrace to the series. Max moans and whines and cries and there is only one funny bit and NO SARCASM. This is (supposedly) Max and there NO SARCASM?!?! Sorry, bit of a rant there. Whoo!! Iron King!!
