Some very strong contenders this year. Personally I think Harriet Tuckey deserves to win.

In reply to Only a hill: A stellar list plus Tanya Oliver, by the looks of things. That's not sounding like an outstanding read, but I guess I should wait until I have read it before dismissing it as ill-conceived chick-lit...

In reply to ben b:
I haven't actually read the book, but I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it - I've heard good things, and I've chatted with the author on Twitter. She seems to have the right idea!

I could be wrong of course :-)

In reply to Only a hill: Fair enough - my tongue is mostly in cheek, but it is a godawful title for a book whichever way you look at it :-)

In reply to Only a hill: Nick Bullock surely !!!!!!!

In reply to Only a hill:

It strikes me (without having read any of the books in question, naturally), as a fairly unappealing list. With the exception of Jim P's two books, I can't see anything on there I'd particularly want to read.

Oh, and Nick B, of course. Hadn't noticed his book on there before.
