The Great Reads Award 2017 πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“š

This is the second year of The Great Reads Award, a debut YA award shortlisted by SLARI (School Library Association of Ireland) and voted on by teen readers! This summer I’m delighted to one of those school librarians who gets to read wonderful YA books with other librarians to decide on which books will make the shortlist! πŸ€“βœŒπŸ“šβ€
The shortlist will be ready in late August, just in time for all of our eager readers teens to get going on their reading once we are back to school! Our Lady’s is going to be very much involved in the awards so we will get as many readers on board as possible! πŸ‘

Here’s the current longlist, which will be whittled down to eight from 20 by the end of August. I foresee some very hard decisions as they all look so interesting! 😍

I have a lovely little pile to read over the next few weeks, and I’m very tempted to add a few more! πŸ€“πŸ˜‚
