#alayma Results!

Were you able to watch the awards Monday? I did.. as long as my internet would keep up, at least. Everyone has been abuzz since. Great choices were made (as always), and unexpected choices are still being talked about. I think a picture book (I repeat, A PICTURE BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!) winning the Newbery Medal was completely unexpected and so well deserved. I will be writing a post on my thoughts of this next week… So stay tuned!  😉

So I’m sure you are wondering (IF you already don’t know) who all won what. You can rewatch the whole event on the <3ilovelibraries website or DOWNLOAD THE PDF if you want to read the titles.
