Brief Thoughts on the Women’s Prize 2021 Shortlist

The Women's Prize for Fiction 2021 shortlist was just announced, so I figured I share my thoughts on it quickly. I've only managed to read 2 and half(ish) books of the longlist, since I was not prioritizing reading it – I have read Luster and No One Is Talking About This and I absolutely loved… Continue reading Brief Thoughts on the Women’s Prize 2021 Shortlist

Women’s Prize for Fiction 2021 Longlist Reactions & Feelings

I can't believe that Women's Prize season is upon us again so soon. Feels like we just wrapped up 2020 prize cycle and we're already back. Time continues to be a JOKE. Anyways, I made no plans to read the longlist this year after not having fun with it last year (you can check out… Continue reading Women’s Prize for Fiction 2021 Longlist Reactions & Feelings

This is my final read for the Women's Prize 2020 list! What an exciting journey it was!

Women’s Prize Reviews #9: Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

We're back with Women's Prize reads! I abandoned my reading of the longlist, and was determined to finish reading the shortlist, so here we are. I might end up not reading one final book from the shortlist (I know you completionists will  judge me, but I just don't care). I am now in the middle… Continue reading Women’s Prize Reviews #9: Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

Women’s Prize Reviews #8: How We Disappeared by Jing-Jing Lee

"My body kept time and I watched it as if observing a strange life form." How We Disappeared was one of the books on the longlist I categorized as very low priority, because I am entirely not a historical fiction person, especially when the book is focused on World War II. I just have a… Continue reading Women’s Prize Reviews #8: How We Disappeared by Jing-Jing Lee

Women’s Prize for Fiction 2020: A Brief Shortlist Reaction

No one is surprised. I know, I know, it's another Women's Prize post and you all are bored, but I like doing these, PLUS I try to be funny at all times (and fail almost always), so hopefully, everyone gets something out of it. As I mentioned in my previous post where I talked about… Continue reading Women’s Prize for Fiction 2020: A Brief Shortlist Reaction

Women’s Prize Reviews #7: Girl by Edna O’Brien

Girl was one book on the list that I was a bit wary to get into. First of all, it follows the perspective of one of the schoolgirls that was kidnapped by Boko Haram, and that felt like a super heavy topic to deal with. However, that would not have been such a concern for… Continue reading Women’s Prize Reviews #7: Girl by Edna O’Brien

Women’s Prize Reviews #6: The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

I've always wanted to read an Ann Patchett novel so I was excited to see a book by her on the list. However, when I saw that The Dutch House was a historical fiction (or it was set just post second World War) and my excitement dropped. Historicals almost never work for me, so I… Continue reading Women’s Prize Reviews #6: The Dutch House by Ann Patchett
