Actually, I'm not a big believer in awards. I just don't think art can be ranked that way.  But I'm always interested in what my peers think are the best books of the year (sometimes just to get some ideas of what to read).

I know it's early. Does anyone want to make any guesses or suggest potential nominations for 2017?

I really hope this book wins a YA NF award -- How Dare the Sun Rise: Memoirs of a War Child by Sandra Uwiringiyimana. I feel everyone in American should read it.

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas needs to win either a Morris or a Printz or both.

I am not as on top of my MG or PBs this year!

Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk for a Newbery. Loved it.

I'll second The Hate U Give. If you can listen to it, even better.
