The Longlists are here!

This week, the New Yorker, in collaboration with The National Book Foundation, has announced the five longlists for the 2018 National Book Awards and there are some amazing picks! I squealed out loud (like actually squealed) when I saw that The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai was on the fiction list! I couldn’t love that book more if I tried and am so happy to see it on this list. Makkai’s book is joined by some other AMAZING books and although I’ve read a decent amount of them…my TBR list just keeps growing and growing and growing. Here are the lists for you to browse, purchase, borrow and read!
