A new year means a new opportunity to gush about those awesome books from last year that you’re still thinking about. And perfect timing because the Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader just opened nominations for their 2017 Teen Choice Book Awards.
According to Every Child a Reader, the Children’s & Teen Choice Book Awards are, “the only national book awards program where the winners are selected by kids and teens of all ages.”
Last year, Jennifer Niven’s All the Bright Places took home the Teen Book of the Year prize, with finalists ranging from Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen to Marissa Meyer’s Winter. Now it’s time to make your voice heard about the titles you want as this year’s contenders.
There’s a list of 485 incredible YA books published in 2016 that are up for selection—and you get to nominate as many as 15 of them. The five titles that receive the most votes by the February 1 deadline will serve as the official finalists for the CBC’s 2017 Teen Choice Book of the Year (we’ll share more on the voting for that round when it’s available!), which will be announced this May.
We took a peek at the list and some of our faves, like Jennifer Mason-Black’s Devil and the Bluebird and Laure Eve’s The Graces, are on there so be sure to check it out and vote for your favorites by Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at 11:59PM. Hey, even if your go-tos aren’t on the list, there’s a slot for you to write in your own nominations.
