Book Awards II Reading Challenge

Corinne told me about this challenge and it seemed up my wanna-be librarian alley so here goes.

Read 10 award winners from August 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009.
You must have at least FIVE different awards in your ten titles.
Overlaps with other challenges are permitted.
You don't have to post your choices right away, and your list can change at any time.
'Award winners' is loosely defined; make the challenge fit your needs, keeping in mind Rule #2.

Here is my list - I tried to branch out a little from my usual YA but there are still some on there:

1. The Name of the Wind, by Patrick Rothfuss (Alex Awards)
2. Monster, by Walter Dean Myers (Printz Award)
3. Dancing on the Edge by Han Nolan(National Book Award)
4. Keeper of Dreams by Orson Scott Card (Margaret A. Edwards Award)
5. Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction)
6. Seeker, by Jack McDevitt (Nebula Award)
7. Dune by Frank Herbert (Nebula Award)
8. Tamar by Mal Peet (Carnegie Medal)
9. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (Quill Award)
10. How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff (Printz Award)

I signed up right after you. I thought I'd beat you to be behind Tip of the Iceberg, but alas, you were too quick.
