The Stars of 2014: Final Round-Up

Elizabeth Bluemle - January 8, 2015

Well, chickadees, here it is: the final tally of starred reviews for youth literature for 2014 from the following sources: BooklistThe Bulletin of the Center for Children’s BooksThe Horn BookKirkus ReviewsPublishers Weekly, and School Library Journal. This year, 868 books received 1458 stars from these esteemed review sources.
This is an insanely detail-laden process, and as careful as I try to be, there may be oversights here and there. If you want the cleanest version of this list, check back in a week or two, when I’ll have been alerted to anything that needs fixing. Publishers, if my star count for individual titles doesn’t match yours, please send an email to me at ebluemle at, listing the title and the review sources with dates. Many thanks!
My hope is that this list will help readers find fine books they may have overlooked, and of course to place large monetary bets on the upcoming youth award announcements. (Kidding! But speaking of which, the ALA Youth Media Awards—Newbery, Caldecott, King, Printz, Sibert, Geisel, and many many others—will be announced on February 2, 2015, beginning at 8 a.m. in Chicago, and livestreamed here.)
One note I feel strongly about: critical acclaim doesn’t always align with child appeal, so I would urge parents, librarians, booksellers, and teachers not to overlook titles without stars. Sometimes, books beloved by children don’t receive a single starred review, but still enrich and enchant their lives. The one thing I hope this project doesn’t do is encourage people to bypass titles worth considering that somehow have escaped reviewer attention. If you have some examples of books you’ve truly loved from this year that didn’t receive stars, please post them in the comments below. Caveat: no self-promotion (or promoting a friend, loved one, client, etc.)! Thanks.
And — if you’re willing to share, it would be great to know what your role in the book world is and how you use this list.
Happy reading!

5 thoughts on “The Stars of 2014: Final Round-Up

  1. Lara Starr

    Ooh I love this! So great to see the big picture. I love to see how relatively few books earn 3+ stars – makes me extra proud of the Chronicle Books on this exclusive list! I also like the opportunity to double-check my work at the end of the year – did any of the stars for our books escape my net? Thank you SO MUCH for pulling this together!

    1. Elizabeth Bluemle Post author

      It’s a pleasure, Lara. Well, maybe not the actual compiling and formatting time, ha, but I find it really helpful myself when it’s pulled together. It’s great to know that you like it. Thanks so much. And woot! to Chronicle!

  2. Donna Marie Merritt

    THANK you, Elizabeth! This is a huge undertaking with, I am sure, many, many hours of work. I’ve shared it on my FB page with shout-outs to all the marvelous writers and illustrators I know. 2014 was a fabulous year for kid lit, was it not? 😀

  3. Nancy Paulsen

    Thanks for this great listing. LITTLE POEMS FOR TINY EARS by Lin Oliver and illustrated by Tomie dePaola actually got 3 stars — PW, Booklist & KIrkus. Tomie’s going strong at 80!
