The CILIP Carnegie 2013 Shortlist has been announced today and it's a whopper. Excellent books with some variety too. I highly recommend at least 6 of them!
The CILIP Carnegie 2013 Shortlist:
1. Maggot Moon - Sally Gardner
2. The Weight of Water - Sarah Crossan
3. In Darkness - Nick Lake
4. Wonder - RJ Palacio
5. Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein
6. A Boy and a Bear in a Boat - Dave Shelton
7. A Greyhound of a Girl - Roddy Doyle
8. Midwinterblood - Marcus Sedgwick.
Numbers 1-5 on the list were picked for my personal shortlist, which includes links to reviews of seven titles on the shortlist.
Next read for me will be Midwinterblood. It's the only one I haven't read and reviewed yet and I've heard marvellous things about it.
Very excited to get going with our shadowing group now.
If anyone would like to join us, please let us know.
Also, Anna James is hosting a shadowing group on Twitter (@acasefobooks #tweetckg).
