2009 National Book Awards

Today I read that Laini Taylor's Lips Touch: Three Times was nominated for the 2009 National Book Awards for Young People's Literature. I haven't read this one, but I loved both of her Dreamdark books (Blackbringer and Silksinger) so I was rather happy to see this. Congratulations to Laini Taylor!

Wow, congrats to Laini Taylor! I really need to get on the ball and read Blackbringer already. So many books, so little time! (Also, on a shallow note, her cover art is gorgeous - Lips Touch is no exception)

Thea - I can't wait to see what you think of Blackbringer. Lips Touch also sounds great from the few reviews I have read and I think I really need to read it soon.

Her cover art is gorgeous; I completely agree. Blackbringer was one of those books were I saw the cover and just wanted to read it that much more.
