December 8, 2014 • Cee • Recommendations

Do Me A Favor! is a new and sporadic feature where I ask, you, my dear friends and followers for recommendations of books, TV shows, Tumblrs, places, and just about anything I should check out.

I know I haven’t done one of these posts in forever, but THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I NEED YOUR HELP.

You know how I’m super into book covers? Well, guess what! I’ve decided to host:

YA Book Cover Choice Awards
(There will be a better banner.)

I was wondering why there wasn’t a “Best Of” celebration post or Book Cover Choice Awards specifically for YA covers that had been decided by readers. You have Epic Reads’ Book Shimmy Awards and Goodreads Choice Awards, but those aren’t based on the book cover designs. There are sites like Buzzfeed that create best book cover lists compiled by a single person (or what seems to be), but where are the best YA book covers picked by readers?

This is where you come in.

I need your help in coming up with award categories. Spare a few minutes and suggest what categories should be in this Book Cover Choice Awards in this form, tweet with the hashtag #YABCCAwards, or comment below.

The plan: Suggestions for award categories will close Thursday 12/11 9 PM PST, and book cover nominations will begin Saturday 12/13 (or perhaps sooner). Sound good? :)

    I just love your cover feature, and you totally make me want to start my own. I’m just worried it would end up copying yours too much. :/ But seriously, you’re so cover-enthusiastic, and this suits you! I’ll rack my brains and try to come up with categories.

  2. i’m so excited for this feature and extremely glad you created it! i will shamelessly admit to judging a book based on it’s cover. (some people just don’t understand the importance of an aesthetic cover!) i love all your cover posts and cannot wait to see how these cover awards go! #coverjunkie. xox

      And this is the perfect time to judge and nominate those book covers that you think fits in the categories. I have a nomination post up, so nominate until your heart’s content! ;D

      And I’m always excited to meet fellow cover junkie! BOOK COVER LOVE! :D

  3. Er I love you?! This totally needs to be a celebrated <3

    Submitted some that *hopefully* others haven’t come up with! And it’s so like you to think of something cover-related, too. ;) Looking forward to voting (we get to vote, right?!) and seeing the results!

      Thank you, Meg! Ha! Everybody tells me this is ~so like me, and it is. Book covers + me = true love. ;D
