Americanized: Rebel Without a Green Card by Sara Saedi

We intended to pick four runners up, but the following two titles were tied for votes:

Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman

Tyler Johnson Was Here by Jay Coles

So suffice it to say that Tess and Tyler are also REALLLLLY good books.

This mid-year vote was good practice for our real vote at the end of the year, and gave us an opportunity to highlight our favorite books so far. These results will not affect which books are eligible for our end-of-year official vote, and we will not be ruling out the books that did not make it onto our mid-year voting ballot.

On Friday we’re throwing a party to celebrate the end of our summer session, and we’re doing a mid-year vote on what our fave books this year have been, so far! This should help us focus on the best stuff during the busy fall publishing season, and will delineate some clear winners from the first half of the year.

On the ballot are books that have been nominated by at least one book club member:
