Introducing the Young Writer of the Year Award Shortlist!

Hi, folks! Okay, so you may remember that a little while back I revealed that I’m sitting on the shadow panel for the Young Writer of the Year Award. At the time, I wasn’t allowed to share too much information because it was all under embargo, but I’m pleased to announce that I can finally reveal this year’s shortlist!

As an aside, this is the first year that five books made the shortlist because the judges just couldn’t choose. That says a lot about how difficult it’s going to be for us, the shadow panel, to choose our favourite!

 

 

And so without further ado, here’s the shortlist:

Minoo Dinshaw: Outlandish Knight: The Byzantine Life of Steven Runciman (Penguin)
Biography

Claire North: The End of the Day (Orbit)
Novel

Julianne Pachico: The Lucky Ones (Faber)
Short stories

Sally Rooney: Conversations with Friends (Faber)
Novel

Sara Taylor: The Lauras (Heinemann)
Novel

I’m super looking forward to getting stuck in and I’ve already started reading some of the books. You’ll be able to see my reviews for each of the books in the coming weeks and be sure to check back for more information on the Young Writer of the Year Award.

In the meantime, thanks as always for stopping by SocialBookshelves.com and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for further updates. I’ll see you soon!
