The Man Booker Prize 2012 Shortlist

Leave a Comment
The Man Booker Prize 2012 Shortlist has been announced, link here where you can read a short synopsis of each contender.
I'm really excited about reading Bring up the bodies by Hilary Mantel and Swimming home by Deborah Levy- they are the type of book I always gravitate towards; haunting story lines, historical settings- I can tell they are going to be real page turners.

The others, however, are books that I would not be so keen on reading. I'm going to try to read every book that has been shortlisted to try and break the misconceptions I have- I'm terrible at judging books by their covers, and always skip past oriental themed novels such as The garden of evening mists by Tan Twan Eng. For some reason, they just do not appeal to me. Maybe Tan Twan Eng can prove me wrong. I'll post a review with my thoughts!
