Looking for something new to read that you know is gonna be amazing? Well the Sugarscape book club is a nifty place to start, but if you've made your way through all of our recommendations then you might wanna check out the big book prizes.
This week the nominees for the Waterstone's Childrens Book Prize have been revealed to the reading world, and the Older Fiction Category is pretty much your golden list of the stories you NEED to get your nose into right now.
But have you actually read any of them yet? Let's find out.
Everyone's pretty chuffed this year because, of the six 2016 nominations, two of the YA fiction titles have LGBTQ+ issues at their core – The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson (which we featured not too long ago), and I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson.
In the former, two teens struggle with their gender identities at school - a place where "secrets are hard to keep", while Jandy Nelson's novel is about a brother and sister "driven apart by tragedy are brought back together in the most unexpected way as they both find themselves falling for boys at the same time".
Here's who else is up for the prestigious prize this year:
Seed by Lisa Heathfield
The story of a teenage girl who's experiencing a creeping awareness that all is not right in the cult in which she has been raised.
The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
As a result of long-buried family secrets Cara's family becomes inexplicably accident-prone. Injuries follow wherever they go, and the accident season becomes an ever-growing obsession and fear.
The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
Twylla has a gift - or a curse. She can kill with a single touch. Now she's the court executioner, but when she meets a rebellious guard, Twylla starts to question everything she's been told...
Thirteen Days of Midnight by Leo Hunt
Luke's estranged father dies suddenly, leaving his son a dark inheritance. Luke has been left in charge of his father's ghost collection: eight vengeful, restless spirits.
