update - I’ve read 7/13 so far. I still haven’t read anything since I finished #EverythingUnder
a few days ago, which I LOVED! Just as well I start the remaining longlisted books with a fresh mindset, hopefully once I’ve recovered from my book hangover!
Discovering gems like Everything Under is probably my fave part of literary prizes like the Booker. So good, and something I might have missed out on reading otherwise. Washington Black was another example of a book I might not have read if not for the Booker list, so I’m glad for that!
Tbh, all the Booker books I’ve read so far have been pretty interesting and different and have been strong choices. Plus they’ve all been really gorgeous books too! #coverlove
If I had to pick faves at this point, it would be In Our Mad and Furious City & Everything Under 💕💙 I read #MadAndFurious
before the longlist announcement and felt like I was holding the Booker winner in my hand
Looking forward to reading the rest of the longlist over the next few weeks and seeing how my thoughts might change! 📖🙌🏽 Have you been reading the Booker longlist this year? Let me know what your favourites have been!! 😍
