2019 YA Yearbook Awards Results

Back in November I announced that nominations were open for the 2019 YA Yearbook Awards. The top five nominations in each category moved on to the voting round and today I’m excited to announce the winners!

I was overwhelmed to see 252 people cast votes! That was a much number larger than I ever imagined would participate! Thank you to every single person that took the time to nominate your favorite books and characters and vote – your support for my project meant a lot!

Also a huge thank you to Erin Hahn for inspiring the creation of these awards. If you haven’t read her debut from last year, You’d Be Mine, you are missing out on a really great story. Read my review here! And make sure her sophomore novel, More Than Maybe, is on your radar for May because it is absolute perfection. Read my five fast facts about it here!

Now, without further ado, here are the winners!

  1. These are so fun! I’m glad so many people voted, and you should definitely do it again next year!

    Your son is adorable, I’m so sorry for everything that he is going through (he’s a little trooper!), and I definitely voted for him❤️
