Hello happy readers! Today is a grand day (which means it has to be a good way to end the week, right?) as it’s finally the day the INSPY advisory board can share the 2020 INSPY Award longlist. We’re pretty excited, let me tell ya’.
Like any year, it takes time to go through your nominations, verify them, organize them and put everything together so that it’s reader-friendly for all of you to peruse. But, we’ve busily been doing all of this in the past week (nominations closed January 16th), and we’re excited to bring the longlist to you on this Friday. Here’s what comes next:
From the lists below, the Advisory Board will narrow these respective lists down to three books per category which will become our 2020 short lists. From there, the same judging process and practices will follow. – INSPYs.com
Now it’s time to sit down, open Goodreads, grab a warm beverage (and maybe a cozy blanket!) and pad those TBR piles. We want to know, what are you most excited for?
You can find the full list of longlist titles on INSPYs.com; below I do share the ten debut novels that you wanted to see up for an INSPY award! (Because, it’s always a good day to celebrate debuts, right?)
