The Orange Prize Project

The BookDepository

I love prize winning fiction, so I’ve decided to sign up to another challenge! – The Orange Prize Project . I have read a few of the Orange prize winers already, but there are a lot more buried in my reading pile. Hopefully, by taking part in this challenge, I will be encouraged to move a few of them to the top of the pile!
The ones I have read so far are:

The Outcast, by Sadie Jones

The Accidental, by Ali Smith

A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, by Marina Lewycka

Purple Hibiscus, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The Blind Assassin, by Margaret Atwood

The Hundred Secret Senses, by Amy Tan

The Monsters of Templeton, by Lauren Groff, which was shortlisted for the prize this year, is top of my reading pile, so I should finish reading it soon.
I look forward reading lots more Orange prize winners over the coming months!

    I’ve been working my way thought these too. Just reading Outcast at the moment and I think I might have read just about all of the older winners now. But I went even further and tried to read all the shortlisted ones too, so that might take a little longer!

    Ros – The Orange Prize project involves reading all the winners and short listed books, so I’ve let myself in for the same task as you! Some people even read all the long listed ones, but I don’t think I’ll commit to doing all of those at the moment!
