The start of a great new series?
Huge Congratulations to Douglas Stuart and well done to all the authors who made the Shortlist.
We have decided on a winner and we are nearly unanimous in our decision
Book Worm’s Prediction: Clearly there is only one possible winner and that is The Shadow King. However the Booker judges never agree with me so Real Life will probably win.
Tracy’s Prediction: This year is harder than usual to predict (of course my record for predicting the winner is 0%). I think that the winner this year will be The Shadow King.
Nicole’s Prediction: I didn’t like it, but I see only one clear choice and it’s The Shadow King.
Anita’s Prediction: It would be easier for me to predict if I had actually read all six books, but I’m going with Real Life. Timely, yet restrained.
The winner? You know the year is 2020 when a book about war is the least depressing book on the shortlist.
The winner – well it fits with most of 2020.
Could this one be our winner?
With just 12 days to go until the biggest announcement of the year (possibly) what do the Readers Read team think of the shortlist?
