Shortlisting Next Week...

Right, well we are going to be shortlisting for the award next week so this is your very last chance to let me know what you think of books you've read this year. Clearly, I have my favourites but they don't seem to be the same as everyone else's this year, which is why I'd like some opinions from everyone else!!

I don't think I should really say what my favourites are here because I'll be doing another blog after we've shortlisted and if I say I'm really pleased it might give one or two of the titles away!! There have been quite a few good ones and I have to admit I still have several to read before next week so I could change my mind about what I want on the list anyway!!

Reading for Next Year...

Not sure if anyone is going to be reading this blog now but I thought I'd update you on what I've been reading anyway!! Have to say I haven't read much recently that I've really enjoyed but one that I have read recently is Marco's Pendulum by Thom Madley. WOW!! I absolutely loved this book - we've even booked to go and spend a night in Glastonbury just to see all the places it mentions. It's a great plot and it's genuinely scary - one of those books that you just have to keep reading! Infact, I haven't read a book that I've thought was that good for a long time!! I would highly recommend it but be warned, it is scary and not for the faint-hearted!!

If you've read Marco's Pendulum or read something that you think is even better will you let me know? We really need to find some good titles for the shortlist next year!!
