The 2013 Inky Awards Longlist

One of the coolest things about being at Reading Matters was hearing the live announcement of the 2013 Inky Awards longlist (especially when many of the authors on the list were in the audience).  The Inky Awards are the Australian teen choice book awards for teen literature, voted for online by the readers of, and named after the site’s wonder-dog, Inky. There are two awards: the Gold Inky for an Australian book, and the Silver Inky for an international book.  Check out the visual longlist below and go to  for more information about each of the books.

Silver Inky Longlist

What are your favourites?  I’m actually glad I can’t vote because I’d have a real problem trying to chose my favourite, especially the for Gold Inky.  So many great books!

We seriously need to set up a teen choice book award in New Zealand.  I may need to start a petition and send it to Storylines.
