But in looking at her website for this I just realized she actually did the cover for a novel I thought had a really good looking cover the other year - An Enchantment of Ravens

I've also thought that was a great cover. 

I think this is a good point. We could also keep track of YA related fan art, professional art, and covers that we think should be nominated. I will update the OP.

Awesome. I sadly think I will have an easier time coming up with 6 YA artists this year to nominate than novels.

Just to see what is out there and what is getting the media buzz on YA science fiction / fantasy to read this year, I'm going to start hunting down some of these lists and listing the books they are listing here.  Take these lists with a lot of salt!  But it might give us some titles to discuss and if anyone has read any of them, please let us know what you think of them.

To start, Seventeen Magazine's 21 Best YA Novels of 2018 (so far) includes the following science fiction / fantasy novels:

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Everless by Sarah Holland

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton

Dread Nation by Justina Ireland

List can be found here: https://www.seventeen.com/life/g15072627/best-ya-books-2018/

Goodreads will also have the best of 2018 SF at the end of the year. Their normal YA list at the moment is gigantic, though. 

Here's some other lists:

B & N Teen Sci-fi: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/teen/13-anticipated-science-fiction-novels-2018/

B & N Teen Fantasy: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/teen/anticipated-ya-fantasy-novels-2018/

I did love The Belles and Dhonielle Clayton's sequel is coming out.  Part of what I loved / hated about it was that it was so loooooong.  The long part turned it into a terrible commentary about bodies and beauty.  Looking forward to the new one and big nod to the cover artist.  The new cover reveal is this weekend.

Edit:  But OMG y'all, remember how freaking long The Silver Crown was?  It Was So Long.  So were the OZ books, sometimes a long YA book is ok.

I loved The Belles.  Tackled a lot of body issue, bodily autonomy and beauty stuff that adolescents deal with.  

Edit:  I just realized I already responded to this.  There was a great article reviewing YA I need to find and post.
