After the excitement of this year’s nominations and the announcement of the longlist in February, we’re finally at the stage where the shortlist has been decided. This is always a favourite part of the awards, it’s the stage when others are able to read alongside the judges, bringing their own thoughts, ideas and experiences to the characters, themes and stories in each of the books. An open book is a portal to different worlds and ways of thinking and it’s at this stage when they are being devoured and deliberated upon by so many readers that the books begin to take on a life of their own. . .
