2014 Abraham Lincoln Book Award Winner!
WOW! I'm not surprised, but one of the BEST BOOKS EVER won the Abraham Lincoln High School Book Award this year! The big winner was The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, and I don't think I can say enough fantastic things about this book and this author. If you haven't heard of him, you should stop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and go check him out, either on the internet (he has a TON of hilarious blogs) or at the Library by checking out one of his books. He has a huge following of people that call themselves Nerd Fighters, and his fans are very loyal. :) If you are interested in checking out some John Green's books, stop by the Library today! His stuff is really popular, so if there isn't anything on the shelf, make sure to put yourself on the hold list. He is definitely worth the wait. Here are his other titles, in no particular order if you are interested:
An Abundance of Katherines
Looking for Alaska
Will Grayson, Will Grayson
Now don't get me wrong, there were a lot of really great books on the list last year, and if I had to choose another winner, I think I would have gone with Hate List by Jennifer Brown. Another great author with quite a few good books out there.
Not happy with the decision? Let me know what you would have picked for the winner! I'm always interested to see what you guys think about the books on the list!
