2014 High School Sequoyah Award Nominees List

Did you know there's a popular choice award in Oklahoma for young adult books? YOU can vote on which book should win! Every year, the Oklahoma Library Association puts out a list of nominated titles so that teens can vote on which title should win the award. The 2014 High School Sequoyah Award will be awarded in April 2014. All you have to do to vote is read at least three titles from the list, then select your pick on the voting ballot that you can pick up in your school or library starting in March! But why stop at three books? Why not read all 15? Challenge your friends to read as many as they can, and then you can all vote for your favorite! Quiz your librarians on how many they've read! (I've read 8 so far...) Here's a handy list you can use to request the books from your library's catalog: http://bit.ly/1gXUDc7

Let's Talk About Unspoken

Unspoken

Do you like humor? Do you like horror? What about quirky characters, dark woods, sleepy English towns with a mysterious past? How about a character whose imaginary friend actually talks back, and grows up with her? And what's the deal with that Lynburn family--why won't anyone tell Kami anything other than to stay away from them? Find out in Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan.

A Howlingly Good Audiobook

The Mysterious Howling

The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, by Maryrose Wood, is a delightful read on its own, but with the addition of Katherine Kellgren's narration, this story is taken to a magical land of snooty ladies, plucky governesses, and howling wolf-children. Kellgren uses different voices and accents for all the characters--her talent for dramatic reading kept me in my car, listening to the story, long after I had reached my destination. This is definitely one of my favorite audiobooks of all-time. (Plus, it's the first in a series! I've just started Book 3!!)

You, too, can experience the awesomeness by requesting it here: http://bit.ly/1egAeOD
