It’s awards list season here! A couple of weeks ago the Stella Prize longlist was announced (I wrote a bit about it here) and the shortlist comes out on International Women’s Day (March 8), along with the longlist for the Women’s Prize for Fiction, and the Aurealis Awards shortlist was released a few weeks ago too.
We’ve also had announcements of longlists for awards in the YA and kids’ books space this week too – with the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Notables, and the Inky Awards longlists, AND the Readings Children’s Book Prize shortlist.
It’s so exciting to see so much wonderful literature recognised (and of course there are SO MANY other fantastic books that don’t make the list), but my TBR list has totally EXPLODED with the excitement – I literally want to read everything on every list.
Today’s stack is a couple of #loveozya books I own that have found themselves on the award lists this week – a couple I have read, and some that are on my exploding TBR =)
Does anyone else suffer from awards list FOMO? How do you manage it?
