We've made it to the other side!
Between us we have finally done it! We have read every book on both the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway shortlists. Phew! There are some definite favourites shining through (Rules of Summer and Tinder FTW!), but when it comes to who will actually win we come up clueless! If there is anything previous years have taught us, it is that the prize could go to anyone. We will continue to consult our books, kindles and crystal balls in the hope that define inspiration will strike soon.

Cuckoo Song
Half way through Cuckoo Song and I'm loving it. I can't wait for my next instalment; it's so dark!

We're ready!
After what seems like an age we finally have the short lists in our hands! Even with all those hours agonising over the long list, we only correctly guessed one book. Let's hope our predictions for the overall winners are more accurate! We had such a wonderful time meeting Alison last week (she's our local Carnegie judge!) and learning about how the judges come to their final decisions. We can't wait to apply this knowledge to our own shadowing process. We have the books, we have the blog, and we've had the expert advice- Carnegie, Kate Greenaway watch out because we're ready!!
