  1. It always horrifies me how few books on these lists I’ve read – only one, in this case – the Rankin. So since I thought it was great, I guess I’m hoping it wins!

    1. I haven’t read any :S In all honesty the majority of the books on these shortlists are new to me unless they’re from well known authors like Penny and Rankin so the chances of me having read them before they are shortlisted are slim to none… I’ve heard the Louise Penny is also very good so I’d venture a guess and say it’s between Rankin and Penny.

  2. I’ve read Ghostman and it’s quite good. Not an actual edge of your seat kind of thriller, but quite nice. I wouldn’t have thought it’s an award-winning book though.
