Stella Longlist 2015

The 2015 Stella Longlist has just been announced. Click on the link to see who the judges are and their comments to date.

I've read (& enjoyed) three of the titles so far, with another three on my TBR pile.
Links will take you to my reviews.
The Stella tab along the top will take you to my list of previous Stella longlists.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
Do you have a favourite? Or a top pick?
Which one should I read next?


  1. That's a really interesting list for this year's Stella Prize.

    I've read Garner's This House of Grief and London's The Golden Age, which I've reviewed at for the Australian Women Writers Challenge 2015. I thoroughly recommend it.

    1. The Golden Age is one of the 3 books on my TBR pile - I keep hearing wonderful things about it.

  2. It's a bit sad that I haven't read a single book from this list!! I would like to hear which ones you would recommend when you're done with them. Although I have to say that the cover for Heat and Light alone is really intriguing me!

    I haven't read any of the books either, but at least I recognized Alice Pung's name. Her "Her Father's Daughter" is on my non-fiction list for this year.

    No media coverage about the Stells Prize here in The Netherlands.
    I will go through the longlist......thanks for the information!

  5. I haven't read any, but have meant to read quite a few... The 3 you've read are all very tempting, as well as Laurinda, Nest and The Golden Age. I have now bought the Helen Garner, and planning on reading it soon. I've got Only the Animals out from the library at the moment and hoping to start it soonish.


I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment (esp on mobile devices), otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) & third party cookies, check their script filters in their browser and on their computer.Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All spammer comments will be deleted and reported.
