The people behind the Baileys Women's Prize For Fiction want you to nominate a book, written by a woman, which has had the most impact on your life
‘No book has brought out as much emotion in me as #ThisBook. In good ways and in bad ways, but in ways which are very necessary,’ said Bowman about her choice, The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold.
The most talked about books will be narrowed down to #ThisBook’s Top 20, which will be announced in July 2014. Strong contenders so far include To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, which was selected by human rights activist Shami Chakrabarti and singer Sharleen Spiteri, and Lionel Shriver’s 2005 Women’s Prize winner, We Need to Talk About Kevin, chosen by Susanna Reid.
