Carnegie Medal 2017

With the winner announced 19th June 2017, I’ve only left a month to read through the shortlist … but what a list! I love the balance of fantasy to contemporary, British to international fiction. There are prominent names and debut authors. 

If I finish before the awards, I will write short round up and tell you who I think *should* win, and who I think *might* win. Track my progress here, and find my reviews linked below.

The Smell of Other People’s Houses – Bonnie Sue Hitchcock
