2014 Children's Choice Book Awards


You all know that I love awards and have a lot of information about awards on my site when I find them. In my header you see the upcoming award I am talking about today. You have to check out the page it is so great. And if you happened to have read any of the books, why not vote?

Go to http://ccbookawards.com/ to vote in all categories which include:

K-2nd Grade

3-4 Grade

5-6 Grade

Teen

Group Ballot

And under each category is say Illustrator of the Year and Author of the Year.

You can also see previous winners like the 2013 Teen Book of the Year The Fault In Our Stars. 

I figured a lot of you that like YA would like to see the teen books. I have not read any of them but two are on my tbr list. The website is really cute also. It is worth it for a look. I tried to post the opening page here but the sizing was off and you could not read it. So see for yourself. I did decide to post it but the view is better on the site. I cannot wait to see who wins!

Here is some more information:
