2019 INSPY Awards Shortlist


Congratulations to all the authors whose books are on the INSPY shortlist, which was announced yesterday!  You can see that list right here.


This year, I won't be judging the Mystery/Thriller category like I did the last few years.  I'll be judging the YA category!  I'm really excited to read the three books on that shortlist and work with my fellow judges to choose this year's winner.  If you want to see who all the other judges for all the categories are, there's a handy list here.  I'm so thrilled to be a part of this award process for a third year!


For the YA category, I will be reading:  


  • A Worthy Rebel by Jody Hedlund (Northern Lights Press)
  • Olivia Twist by Lorie Langdon (Blink)
  • The Edge Over There by Shawn Smucker (Revell)

Can't wait to get started!

    1. Olivia, yeah, I'm happy they accepted me as a judge again :-) It's such a neat way to sort of serve the book community.

  3. Olivia Twist is great! Had a few quibbles with it, but over all I really liked it.
