Feeling justified (and some shameless self-promition)

Yesterday it was announced that Tom Reiss’ The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo had won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography. Back in September I reviewed this book for SLJ’s Adult Books 4 Teens blog! Of course it was my review that made the Pulitzer committee sit up and take notice of this book, right?
Recently I’ve reviewed a number of other books for the blog:
- James Rollins/Rebecca Cantrell’s The Blood Gospel
- Lisa Ballentyne’s The Guilty One
- Will Elsworth-Jones’ Banksy: The Man Behind the Wall
- Therese Anne Fowler’s Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald
- James Daily/Ryan Davidson’s The Law of Superheroes
- Stephen Dobyn’s The Burn Palace
- Mary Stewart Atwell’s Wild Girls
- Perihan Magden’s Escape
- Adam McComber’s The White Forest
I don’t expect any of these to also get a Pulitzer, but what about an NBA award? Getting on RUSA’s Notables lists? or the Edgar? Can’t wait to see how prescient I am!
