Have you seen our Book Awards page?
We’ve gathered all the contenders and winners of the UK’s most popular literary awards in one place! So if you’re keen to read a whole shortlist, want to know what all the fuss is about a particular winner, or are just looking for a great book to read – take a look.
All our book lists link straight in to the library catalogue, so you can find out which libraries hold copies of the book you’re after and whether they’re available (you can reserve from here too).
The book awards we feature include the Man Booker, the CILIP/Carnegie and CILIP/Kate Greenaway Medals, the Specsavers National Book Award and many more!
Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Award this year was the wonderful Queen’s Hat by Steve Antony – a beautifully illustrated whirlwind trip around London.
Or in complete contrast, earlier this month Marion Coutts was awarded the Wellcome Book Prize 2015 for The Iceberg, an exploration of the eighteen months leading up to her partner’s death from a brain tumour.
Each time a new shortlist is announced, the lists are refreshed – but we are gradually building a ’round up’ list of past prizewinners, so you can always be sure to find some great quality reading.
