Forget the Oscars, Golden Globes, Grammy’s and Razzies, this is the most important award of all time: The *Book Shimmy* Awards! It’s time for the greatest annual YA book awards ever, celebrating the best and most feels-inducing young adult books of the year!
What are The *Book Shimmy* Awards?
The *Book Shimmy* Awards is an annual award show dedicated to honoring young adult novels. The awards are 100% community nominated and voted on and 100% awesome. Want to see last year’s winners? Click here!
When will winners be announced?
We will announce the winners on our Youtube Channel on Monday, January 11, 2016. Set your reminders now! (It’s the day after the Golden Globes, so you’ll already be in a festive, award show mood.)
Rules for Nominations
1.) The book MUST be a young adult novel. (No middle grade, no adult.)
2.) The book MUST have been newly published between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015.
3.) When nominating books, please list the title and author since so many YA books have the same or similar book titles!
