The Stars So Far – June 2015 Update

Elizabeth Bluemle -- June 16th, 2015

stars shootingDrum roll, please — it’s time for the the mid-year roundup of starred reviews given to books for children and teens!

The Stars So Far is a project in which I foolishly decide to gather all of the year’s starred reviews for children’s and YA books from BooklistThe Bulletin of the Center for Children’s BooksHorn Book, KirkusPublishers Weekly, and School Library Journal. Some of the reviews are harder to track down than you’d think, so publishers, please alert me to omissions at ebluemle at publishers weekly.com.

Before writing to tell me I’m missing a star, please note that starred reviews are counted only when they have been officially printed and released by the review magazines. If you know that a book will be given a star next week or next month, please don’t send an email. I will add those stars as they are published by the review magazines. Thank you!

This is a detail-laden process, and as careful as I try to be, there will be bobbles here and there. If you want the cleanest, most comprehensive version of this list, check back here several days after the original post, when I’ll have been able to make any fixes.

And now for the stars:

    This is soooooo amazing! Have you ever considered keeping them in a spreadsheet instead of embedded in the website space? That way people could download the file and manipulate (sort, etc) it they way most useful to them. It might also save some web entry! 🙂

    1. Elizabeth

      Thanks so much, Ashley! Unfortunately, we can’t post spreadsheets in the blog tool. (Happily, I don’t do any line by line web entry; just a cut-and-paste of the edited document. You can copy and paste this into your spreadsheet of choice; it would just take a little work to separate out any of the fields you wanted to sort by.

    I know this is a HUGE project for you, but I find it so useful! Thank you so much for doing it! Right now, I am using this list not only to build my own to-be-read list (to keep on top of what’s getting good reviews), but to make sure that we own or have ordered these items. If they’re getting starred reviews, I know they’ll be books my patrons will be looking for. THANK YOU!

    Thank you for doing this. I cannot imagine how much time it took to compile this information. It will be a help to all of us.
