The awards are in February this year which will give us a little more time to talk about them. Perhaps even get in some last minute reading! Meanwhile it's time to make our lists! List on this thread your 5 favorite books that are eligible for the 2018 Newbery awards. The top 15 books that get mentioned the most will make it onto our voting poll. From there we will vote on which one gets our pick for a Newbery medal!

message 19: by LS (new)

LS Johnson | 82 comments My absolute favorite for the year is The Hate U Give, but I don't think it will be considered for this group due to the mature writing of the book, so here are my nominations in no particular order

Beyond the Bright Sea
The Someday Birds
The Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus
Midnight without a Moon
One Last Word

If I could squeeze one more in it would be Three Pennies or The Losers Club

Many good ones this year!

I would also add I'm Just No Good at Rhyming and Vincent and Theo if I we could pick 7 but, alas, they are lower on my list. I think this is a big year and wonder how many books will be recognized this year. Is there a maximum? Can they pick 5 honor books?

Honors can be 0 to 8. Since 1938 it has typically been up to 5.

I found this information online:
"It is said that series books have a more difficult time of winning the Newbery. However, three series books have won the Medal. Name the books, series, and authors.
Dicey's Song, second book in The Tillerman Cycle, by Cynthia Voigt (1983)
The Grey King, fourth book in The Dark is Rising series, by Susan Cooper (1976)
