    • Thank you! Same here, I hadn’t even heard of it before it was longlisted, and it still has less than 100 ratings on Goodreads! It’d be nice to see more people picking it up soon, as I think it’s a very good book.

  1. CONGRATS ON FINISHING THE LIST! I can’t wait for your predictions/wrap-up post(s) about this project. I think I’ll also finish on this book – I’ll probably read Bottled Goods tomorrow and then finish Swan Song before I pick up Remembered even if it kills me. Anyway, great review, I am looking forward to this!

    • Thank you! I’m hoping to put something together in the next few days 📚 I’m rooting for you to finish before the shortlist! And I’m excited to see how you get on with this. It wasn’t what I expected going in, but I thought it was a solid book, and a worthy addition to the longlist.

  2. A book about slavery and a ghost immediately makes me think of Toni Morrison’s Beloved, which is also set during Reformation. Nice job finishing all the books in the running for the Women’s Prize! How many total did you read?

    • Ooh, I think that one’s on my TBR! If not, I’ll be sure to add it.

      Thanks! There are 16 on the longlist in total. I’d already read 2 when it was announced (though I only finished one of them the day before, lol), so I’ve pretty much read 15 of them back-to-back. It was one of those bookish bucket list things I wanted to do at least once, so I’m glad to say I’ve done it! 📚

      • I see! So you don’t do it every year, or plan to do it every year. I’m sure it took up a lot of your reading time that maybe you wanted to devote to other books, too.

        • This is the first time I’ve done it! I loved the experience, and swapping opinions with a group of bookish friends also making their way through the list has been really fun. But yes, it’s taken up pretty much all of my reading time over the past 2 months, so the sense of freedom and choice on my shelves is pretty overwhelming! 😋📚 Have you ever made your way through a longlist?

  3. Congratulations on finishing the longlist! You really left us all in the dust. I am glad you enjoyed the last one you finished!
    I am a bit apprehensive because I am not so good with books that deal with injustice but I do love magical realism, so I am hoping this will work for me.
