The Children’s Book Council of Australia recently announced the awards shortlist for 2019.
A great selection, as usual – though there remains a lot of fabulous books on the Notables list you could investigate, too.
Which of the titles do you rate as the best? Which one deserves the Book of the Year Award? Have you found them in your school or local library yet?
Note, these below are YA titles. Titles in other categories can be seen here: Shortlist for 2019.
Winner and Honour Books will be announced at noon AEST on Friday, 16 August.
In the meantime, consider which one you like best, and which one reflects the Book Week theme: “Reading is My Secret Power” – in what way can reading be YOUR secret power?
