Printz Winners!

This past week the Printz award winners (along with a slew of other winners) were announced. I usually always end up absolutely loving whatever books the award committee selects and this year will probably prove to be no different. Out of all five books chosen however, I'm a little embarrassed to admit I haven't read a single one. Yet. Although I've heard many, many good things about each.
 2011 Winner: Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

2011 Honor Books:
Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Please Ignore Vera Dietz  by A.S. King
Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick
Nothing by Janne Teller

Also in other book award news, the Cybils also recently announced their 2010 finalists a few weeks ago - if you haven't had time to check out their lists (especially the YA and YA fantasy picks), I recommend you do so.

Seeing as I am woefully behind on both lists, I think I have some major catching up to do. Have you read any of these winners/nominees? Any recommendations on where to start?

I haven't read any of them, either :), but I've been wanting to read both Ship Breaker and Stolen for awhile. I'm definitely going to bump them up the TBR now.

I haven't read any of the books from the Printz list. LOL good to know that I'm not the only one so I won't feel bad about it.
