Congratulations to all the nominees and Notables. While I have only read three of the six nominees, I sincerely hope that Graffiti Moon takes the award.


  1. how good is graffiti moon? i would have been devastated it if didn't make the short list.

    what happened to the longlist this year?

  2. I know I am so happy! And out of the three I have read, all of them were among my fave books last year :D

    I have The Life of a Teenage Body Snatcher sitting here so I might have to pick that up.

    I was wondering the same thing about the longlist but now thinking back, do they usually do a longlist or is the Notables their version of one? :S
