Vote now for your chance to win Australia’s 50 top kids and YA books!


It’s that time of the year again when readers are asked by Better Reading to cast their votes for their favourite children’s and YA books for the year. I’ve been so thrilled to have Alice-Miranda and Kensy and Max on the list in recent years (it means a lot to know they have continued to be read and loved). Voting is now open for this year’s round.

Make sure that you don’t just write the name of the series – it has to be a specific book to be eligible. And of course, you don’t have to vote for my books (though I am very grateful if you do).

Vote for the 2022 Top 50 Kids’ Books and go in the draw to win all 50 books that make the list!

Are you an avid reader, always on the lookout for new kids and YA books? If you answered yes, you’ll be thrilled to know that you can now enter the draw to win all 50 of Australia’s Top 50 kids’ books for 2022!

To enter, you just need to vote for your all-time favourite kids or YA book. It can be international or local, old or new, classic or debut – it just needs to be the kids or YA book you love the most.

To make your vote count be sure to write a specific title, not just “Artemis Fowl” or another series name, for example. You may only vote for books that are currently available (in print).

Once voting has closed, we’ll collate the 50 most-voted-for books, and then seven lucky winners will each receive a pack of all 50 titles.

Voting ends on Monday 11 July at 5pm AEST, so vote now by filling out the form below. Please note that by submitting your vote, you will be automatically subscribed to the Better Reading weekly newsletter. You may unsubscribe at any time.






Not sure what AM to vote for!
