There’s an annual prize for the best fantasy and science fiction books for student readers given by the Detcon1 convention, aimed at giving you a steer on some fun books you could be reading.

Here’s the nominees for this year’s prize . . .

Young Adult Novels
1) Allegiant by Veronica Roth.
2) The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black.
3) The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater.
4) The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson.

Middle Grade Novels
1) Handbook for Dragon Slayers by Merrie Haskell.
2) House of Hades by Rick Riordan.

If you haven’t already read these, you might want to give them a try. I have included links to the books on Amazon if you’re feeling flush this week.

House of Hades? It's on the list. It's coming in.
