Cybils Announcement Coming Tomorrow

The Cybils winners will be announced tomorrow. Before learning the YA Speculative Fiction winner, here's a brief rundown, in alphabetical order, of the finalists.

What I found interesting about this selection was the wide variety of types of writing.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.   Science fiction thriller set on a space ship.

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova. Contemporary fantasy that moves its contemporary characters from the real world into a fantasy world.

Still Life With Tornado by A.S. King. A family drama with magical realism.

The Door at the Crossroads by Zetta Elliott. Time travel.

The Keeper of the Mist by Rachel Neummeier. Fantasy in a magical realm.

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. Post-apocalyptic dystopia.

When The Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore. Magical realism.

Check back tomorrow to see what happened.
