Before I talk about how you can vote, I shall talk about what the YA Book Cover Choice Awards is. Very simple. I love book covers, especially YA ones, and was sadden that there weren’t any posts celebrating the awesomeness of them. The YA Book Cover Choice Awards (aka YABCCAwards) aim to honor all the wonderful (and not-so wonderful) book covers that were published in the past year. It will be nominated and voted by readers (à la Goodreads Choice Awards and the *Book Shimmy* Awards).

And voila! We have the final voting round ever for the best 2014 YA book covers! Are you excited as I am? I am pumped that we reached this point!

After all the voting, you will see the top five covers for each category. The outcome of some categories were predictable, but others—well, I was extremely surprised and a bit disappointed that soo many awesome covers were knocked out of the running. It hurts my heart, but hey, that’s what you guys picked!

What You Need To Know

  • This is the final round.
  • These covers were all reader nominated.
  • Vote for the cover you believe should win each category because it’s superior and prettier than the others.
  • Judge base on the covers. Not what’s in the book.
  • You’re only allowed to vote for ONE covers. ONE.
  • If you click on the pictures, it will pop up a bigger image. If you want a bigger picture, click on the links in the Google Docs poll.
  • When you click on the category links below, it’ll take you directly to that category.
  • If you have questions or need clarifications, feel free to ask them and I will answer. :)
  • Voting starts Monday, January 5 and ends Sunday, January 11, 2015 10 PM PST.
  • Last but not least, have fun! Share this with friends and force them to vote!
Big Special Thanks To These Awesome People!
I want to thank Charlotte for everything she’s done to help me make this post; Georgie, Morgan, Jacquelyn, Sara, Audris, Jessica, and Stacee for taking pictures of the spine and interior design of the books; and everybody who nominated book covers. You are amazing. <3
