Meet the Judges: Alina

The Inky Award judges have 20 books to read in two months and the shadow judges had a month to read two books each… so I set them some extra work! I asked them to tell us a bit about themselves so we can get to know them a bit better. Curious about who is hard at work creating the Inky Awards shortlist? Learn more about them in our Meet the Judges series.

Today we meet judge Alina

My favourite book when I was little:

Angela and Diabola by Lynne Reid Banks.

Most unusual place you might find me reading:

On a kayak.

A book I have read that I wish more people would read:

Not if I See You First by Eric Lindstrom.

A book cover that I love:

All the Bright Places  by Jennifer Niven – it’s simple but cute with eye catching colours but also depicts a deep part of the story.

My controversial opinion about books/reading:

When watching a movie based on a book, the book is irrelevant.

Oh my gosh! I love Not If I See You First! - it's such a good underrated Y.A. novel. I may have forced like sixteen people at my school to read it so it's kinda popular over here... hehe

Love the controversial opinion - and agree! Books and movies are different things - hence the word ADAPTATION! Changes have to be made in order to create a movie.
