You know what today is, don't you?

Only the most exciting day of the year! Today (right now!) we announce...

The winners of the 2012 Inky Awards!

It was a hard fought battle. There were tears, laughter, and a little bit of dueling during our voting period, but the books have come out none the worse for wear!

Without further adieu, our winners are...


File 11579

File 11576File 11581File 11583






File 11615Our judges happen to agree with you all! Here's what they had to say about The Fault in Our Stars by John Green:

"Probably my favourite book of them all." - Elizabeth

'“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” URGH! I just wanted to eat John Green’s words up! He absolutely wrecked me with this book – which I always, bizarrely, appreciate.' - Danielle Binks

"LOVED IT!!! Made me cry!" - Fergus


And for Shift by Em Bailey:File 11619

"I found Shift very original and Miranda one of the creepiest creations in YA for a while." - James Moloney

"It was a lethal book to read! it took me two days, but i still had the nightmare of being forced off a roof for a week post finishing!" - Nicole

"Very, very, very creepy!" - Joe
