We’ve been celebrating our 2013 Boston Globe–Horn Book winners and honors with web extras (picture book goodies are here, and more on the nonfiction selections is here). We’ve declared today fiction day — share the love!
It seems everyone’s falling for Fiction Award winner Eleanor & Park! Katrina recently blogged about E&P, calling it a “late addition” to her article with Rachel Smith, “What Makes a Good YA Love Story?” (from the May/June 2013 Horn Book Magazine). For more YA romance recommendations, read Elissa’s “Love, exciting and new” piece from April’s Notes from the Horn Book.
Both BGHB Fiction Honor books this year are fantasy novels. Can’t get enough fantasy? Roger discusses the boom in fantasy books for children and young adults in “What Hath Harry Wrought?” (from our May/June 2012 issue), and our new booklist recommends titles across a wide range of ages.
Fans of Jaclyn Moriarty’s Honor book A Corner of White will want to track down her other work. In Honor book Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, protagonist Seraphina navigates the treacherous political territory between humans and dragons. Click here for more dragon-centric fantasy novels.
