As we all know, yesterday was the closing day for nominations for the Top 100 Young Adult Books List. That means we are ready to move to the next stage, which is voting, as there were more than 100 submissions. I spent all day getting the nominations organized in Excel and then tallying nomination votes. After tallying, which sort of meant nothing, I consolidated all the choices, and also consolidated series, so when you go to vote, instead of seeing The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, you will see The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (trilogy) this was done to keep the list under 500 choices. Then entered each and every single answer into a Google forms box.
The link will take you to a Google form with check boxes. You can check as many as you want, I have no way of limiting or checking how many you did. However, I would prefer you keep it honest and check under 100 boxes, ideally 25 boxes or less. Also, I believe you will be able to view the results.
Also, I just want to say I am so impressed with how many GLBT and PoC nominations were made! You are all so awesome. 🙂
Please, please spread the word, I want as huge of a representation as possible. If you tweet the link, or just link the voting choices somewhere, you will be entered in a contest to win any book of your choice from the final list. You do not need to be a follower to enter or to vote. The book will be shipped directly to you from Book Depository. Leave your link in the comments, or just email me your link.
Voting will close on March 31st.
Thank you all so much!
