The 2023 Longlist is Announced!!!

After a lot of deliberation, and some very industrious reading, the Great Reads Committee is ready to announce the longlist for the 2023 award. So many Great Reads in one place!! Thanks to all the publishers that submitted entries for consideration and to all those who put in the hard work to finalise the list. Do YOU want to get a head start and see if you can predict a shortlist?? Definitely try on the new longlist for size and hopefully one of your favourites makes our official Shortlist in September 🙂

Happy Reading!
