2009 Nebula Award Nominations

They've just announced the Nebula Award nominations for 2009 and here's the list for the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy

* Hotel Under the Sand, Kage Baker
* Ice, Sarah Beth Durst
* Ash, Malinda Lo
* Eyes Like Stars, Lisa Mantchev
* Zoe’s Tale, John Scalzi
* When You Reach Me, Rebecca Stead
* The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making, Catherynne M. Valente
* Leviathan, Scott Westerfeld

(Blush) OK, I'll admit that I've only read two of them - Ash and Eyes Like Stars - but both were extremely good. And I've been meaning to get to Ice for age. How many have you read and which would you pick to win?

I'm sorry to say-but I haven't read any of them. I've heard some great things about Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld, though. I'll defiantly check out Eyes Like Stars and Ash since you liked them so much!

Thank you. Both Ash and Eyes Like Stars are wonderful reads and deserve the praise they are getting. I love the illustrations in Leviathan and that's what drawing me to the book. (Of course it helps that he's such a great writer.) Ice has been hovering near the top of my TBR pile for too long. It's come so highly recommended too. I need more time...
