ALA Youth Media Awards

If were aren't aware - the ALA Youth Media Award Winners were announced last week.

I love when they are announced! 
I watch the live stream and everything! Some day I'll go to ALA Mid Winter and see it in person. 

When the winners were announced I was suprised by the number of book I already owned! (see pic 2). Then I went a bought a few more. 

We Are Ok by Nina LaCour
The 57 Bus Dashka Slater
Vincent and Theo by Deborah Heiligman

Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert
Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds
Hello, Universe by Erin Entrada Kelly
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Dear Martin by Nic Stone

I was really pleased with the choices this year.  They seemed relevant and like books teens will really want to read! Have you read any of these????
