I Am Disappointed | Sundary Summary #23

I was all geared up to start placing holds for Cybils nominations, but we haven't gotten very many.

The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer, is a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Caution: Her site has sidebar ads that sometimes contain cover images which may be offensive to some.

The Good: I completed 12 posts this week as part of Blog Ahead, which is only 2 short of my hoped for number of 14. I'm happy with it.


The Bad: I have been seriously disappointed by the scarcity of nominations in the new Cybils audiobooks category. We have only received 24 entries so far, and half of them don't meet the category guidelines (Middle Grade audiobooks published 10/15/16 to 10/16/15)! If you have a favorite MG book that is available on audio, please nominate it. It would make me extra happy if it is SF or Fantasy, but it can be anything meant for grades 4-8.


Cybils nominations For more information, see the "2016 Cybils Awards" option on the far right of my Menu above.

Still Seeking: I also haven't gotten many recommendations for good non-explicit shifter books/series that are available on audio. If you know of any, you can leave them in the comments here or visit the original post to see what others have already suggested.

Exploring Cyberspace

"#HoldOnToTheLight is a blog campaign encompassing blog posts by fantasy and science fiction authors around the world in an effort to raise awareness around treatment for depression, suicide prevention, domestic violence intervention, PTSD initiatives, bullying prevention and other mental health-related issues. We believe fandom should be supportive, welcoming and inclusive, in the long tradition of fandom taking care of its own. We encourage readers and fans to seek the help they or their loved ones need without shame or embarrassment."
