The Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction 2016 Shortlist was announced earlier today. I have to say I’m a little disappointed. I expected a stronger less predictable shortlist. I’ve read only two titles from this shortlist and neither of them rocked my world – The Green Road by Anne Enright and Ruby by Cynthia Bond. The only others on this shortlist I planned on reading are A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara (sick of hearing about it) and The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney. So here is the shortlist in full. Do you find any of these intriguing? Are you planning on reading any of these? If so which ones? What do you think of this shortlist?
