Specsavers National Book Awards


The shortlists for the Specsavers National Book Awards have been announced. Pictured above are the nominations for the ‘Books are my bag’ New Writer of the Year award. Have you read any of them? I will be hoping for a win for Gavin Extence. I had the pleasure of a morning with him during the Wakefield Lit Fest and enjoyed discussing his fascinating and original novel.
There lots of categories including popular fiction and non-fiction books, crime novels, childrens books and many more so take a look and tell us your picks for the winners.
I couldn’t choose the Waterstones UK Author of the Year from Kate Atkinson, Patrick Ness, Maggie O’Farrell, Iain Banks, Jim Crace and Neil Gaiman. Could you?
