Inky's Fri-Yay August 3

We are counting down the sleeps, peeps… to the announcement of the Inky Awards shortlist. Only ONE MORE WEEK! Do you have predictions?

And who has had the task of taking the twenty book longlist and reducing to ten?

Well meet some more judges! Meet Luca! Meet Sylvia! Meet Charlie! Meet Daniel!

Now to make sure you read those posts and got to know those judges, here is a short quiz called: How well do you know your judges?

Question one:

Which judge reads in a washing basket?

Which judge despises gender stereotypes in YA?

Which judge loved Where is the Green Sheep?

Which judge thinks the character of Harry Potter is lame? Yep you read that right!

But we all know you love books! And I bet you love buying books! So why not help bookswithbane compile a shopping list of books for his school librarian? What’s better than spending someone else’s money on books? I don’t know!

And speaking of PILES OF BOOKS….how is your TBR pile?

Well otaku’s TBR got a whole lot higher after committing to the Booktubathon. Are you interested? Or are you too busy reading the LoveozYA new releases? Or perhaps in honour of Emily Bronte’s 200th birthday you are going to read Wuthering Heights? And if that wasn’t enough (and I assure you it is) here are some reviews from around the Dog. The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society  gets a good wrap from Hermione and what’s better than a single perspective review than a double opinion review? Which is what erin and bookswithbane give us with their review of the Silver Inky longlisted book Warcross by Marie Lu.

So how is that TBR pile now?

And what is a Fri-yay without a quote? It would not be right. So here is a quote from Charlotte’s Web to ponder over the weekend.

So this time next week week we will KNOW THE INKY SHORTLISTS!!!!
