A big thankyou to the wonderful Nat K for reminding me that the Stella Longlist is out. I missed it last year and only got to read the shortlist. There were some great books last year, the winner, "The Erratics", I read with Nat as a buddy read and we both love it. "Too Much Lip" which was shortlisted went on to win the Miles Franklin Award and was a wonderful read as well.
As for this year, I have not read a single book in the longlist, although I have seen them floating around on book sites and blogs, Looks like I have a lot of reading in front of me if I plan on reading the entire list.
