message 19: by Sammm (new)

Sammm I sincerely advise anyone and everyone to really pay attention to the actual first published date, which isn't necessarily the same date listed for the most shelved edition. Also suggest the 15 people (as I typed this) who voted for The Secret Chapter (The Invisible Library #6) by Genevieve Cogman (#99; score: 1,316, and 15 people voted) to correctly relocate their votes to the 2019 list, for self-explanatory reasons. I mean, there's probably a lot more books like that, and I know the 2019 list have some weeding-out to do, but the sooner this is done, the sooner the book can accumulate votes on the list they actually belonged to. =D

I’m not sure the rules on translations, BUT the English translation won’t be out until March 2021, so it doesn’t belong on this list either way. (#294 for the librarians)

There is a 'librarian change log' but it wasn't in there. My guess is that whoever put it on the Listopia realized their mistake and removed it from their votes.
