Is your TBR pile in danger of toppling, like mine? Thank goodness we have the choice of creating our literary towers in the virtual world now. Book reviewer extraordinaire, Claire McAlpine, has just posted the long list for the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2013. I’ve only managed to read a few of these titles so have already added others to my tower.
Which titles have you read or added? Are you prepared to predict a winner at this point?
And may I just say, I look forward to seeing names from our great community of indie authors gracing this list in the near future!
There may not be a new sponsor yet, however 20 books appear on the long list for the international Women’s Prize for Fiction and although there are certain predictable inclusions, such as Hilary Mantel’sBring Up the Bodies, Barbara Kingsolver’sFlight Behaviour and Zadie Smith’sNW, it is great to see such a diverse range of excellent books.
I have managed to read a few already, here are links to my reviews of Elif Shafak’s Honour, M.L.Stedman’s The Light Between Oceans and Kate Atkinson’s Life after Life. I enjoyed all three books, but won’t be trying to guess the winner, it’s much too subjective to choose, read the reviews and see what appeals to you. I am sure there is something for everyone.
There is an interesting article in The Guardian today with links to a synopsis and reviews for all of the books…
