Fascinating to read some of the predictions for the shortlist.
I have read two of the books on the longlist. 'Room', which I hope will make the shortlist but you could be right, Carla. And I 've read 'The Swimmer' but somehow I don't think that it will make the shortlist.
This is not a predicted list but after reading the reviews, I would like to read the following books, whether they make the shorlist or not.
The Memory of Love by Aminatta Forna
Grace Williams says it loud by Emma Henderson
The Birth of Love by Joanna Kavenna
The Road to Wanting by Wendy Law-Yone
The Tiger's Wife by Téa Obreht
The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives by Lola Shoneyin
Anabel by Kathleen Winter
I hope at least some of them make it.
