Anyone have any guesses?  I believe they're coming up next Monday. I wouldn't be surprised if A FACE LIKE GLASS gets something.

ORPHAN ISLAND for Newbery recognition?

I'd love to see FOREVER OR A LONG LONG TIME by Caela Carter get something, too.

I haven't a clue. I haven't read as many of the contenders this year...

I just realized this applies to me, too. I think I spent a lot of this year rereading favorites.

I did too! I wonder what it was about this past year that caused that? Hmm....

I have no good guesses this year, but am always super excited to see what wins, and then to analyze after. :-)

Looking at the NBA Longlist, I wouldn't be surprised to see any of those titles on some lists!

There is no list of contenders, either a long list or a short list.  Everything is a surprise on announcement day.

Looking forward to seeing the results. Like most everyone else who posted, I haven't kept up this year and have been reading 'older' stuff.

But some of the titles themselves look intriguing....

This explains why I can't find the list!   :dr

I'll be surprised if The Hate U Give does not get some recognition. Other than that, I've not any thoughts. Looking forward to the announcements.   :writing3

Just circling back to this conversation--we'll be hearing the announcements shortly, but "A Face Like Glass" can't win a Newbery since the author is not a US citizen or resident. I believe there are similar limitations on other ALA awards.

I went to Amazon and bought the winner. Only $7 (Kindle), but they'll probably raise the price now.

I certainly have a list of books to read now.

Crown: An Ode to the Fresh Cut
was an honor winner for the Newbery, Caldecott, and Coretta Scott King Book Awards. I don't remember this happening before, especially qualifying for both Newbery and Caldecott. Time to look up some books. Congratulations to all the winners!

eta: Thanks for the link, Anne.  :thankyou

Yes, another book (Long Way Down) was honored with Newbery, Coretta Scott King, and Printz awards--go figure. 

I guess it's O.K. But I wish they'd spread the awards around more.

Yay, Salina!  But then, we all know how talented she is.

This link from SLJ might be easier to read, and it's got pictures of the covers too, which is nice:
