2013 was a great year for young adult publishing. So many amazing graphic novels, nonfiction titles, audiobooks and fiction. But how do you separate the good from the great? This afternoon I had the pleasure of hosting the YALSA webinar "Booktalking the Best of the Best." In 60 minutes I yammered on about 45 of my favorite titles from 2013. I had a great time, and aside from a minute of school announcements blasting over the loudspeaker behind me (oops!), and when the audio cut out later on for about a minute (these things happen!), it was awesome. Enthusiastic chat comments from attendees kept me energized and we concluded with a little audiobook lovefest. What better way to spend an hour?
