Presenting the 2016 Inky Awards longlist!

These fantastic books have been selected by teens, for teens as the best new reads to feast your eyes upon. Whether you like mystery, romance, adventure, drama, tall ships, spaceships, warm and fuzzies, leave-the-light-on, or pass-the-tissues-please... the Inky Awards have it all.

Congratulations to all the longlisted authors, thank you to the many teens who shared their thoughts to create it, and special thanks to Jordan, Melanie, Chris, Rehan, Diem, Vinhara, Catie, Oliver, Sarah, Kellie, Emily, Lauren, Genevieve, Phoebe, and Cleopatra for being the announcement superstars!


How many of the longlisted books have you read? Do you already have a favourite?

And the biggest question of all: who wants to judge these 20 books, and select which 10 will make the shortlist? If you've got a keen eye and strong opinions, I want YOU to apply to be an Inky Awards Judge. Details on how to apply here, and - by popular demand - the application deadline has been extended until Monday, 28 March.

Great list! Nice to see The Marvels on here -- graphic novels and other kinds of visual literature are really underappreciated.
