The past month or so I haven’t had much desire to read so I didn’t force myself, but the Manbooker Prize longlist came out a couple days ago and I think I’m ready to jump back in! I want to try and read the ones that I’m interested in! Check out the entire longlist here.
I did my own personal predictions of what books would make the longlist, but only one of them turned out to be correct, haha. I guessed correctly that My Name is Lucy Barton would make it.
From my TBR, these are on the Manbooker Prize longlist:
I actually already owned The Sellout. I got it on the cheap from Book Outlet a couple months ago. The other two are from the Library. There are other books on the longlist I would like to read (His Bloody Project, The Many & Do Not Say We Have Nothing) but they are from other countries and my library doesn’t carry them. I also can’t buy them on Kindle, so short of buying them off Book Depository, I have no options. (And homegirl is on a book buying ban, so…)
The other two are literary fiction novels that came out recently that I’ve had my eye on.
So those are the books I plan to tackle in the month of August. Hopefully I can come out of my slump and plow though some of these. Have you read any of these books? If so, let me know what you thought of them!
