The longlist for the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2019 has just been announced. I like to think of myself as the yaaass queen, let’s hear it for the girls, beyonce type of feminist, singing the praises of women, but I’m ashamed to say that I don’t think I’ve read any of the books on this list. Which not only makes me a shabby feminist, but a not so great book blogger either – something which I intend to remedy in the coming year, by ticking off as many of the following books as I can. The list for Women’s Prize for Fiction 2019 is as follows –

The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
Remembered by Yvonne Battle-Felton
My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
The Pisces by Melissa Broder
Milkman by Anna Burns
Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi
Ordinary People by Diana Evans
Swan Song by Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott
An American Marriage by Tayari Jones
Number One Chinese Restaurant by Lillian Li
Bottled Goods by Sophie van Llewyn
Lost Children Archive by Valeria Luiselli
Praise Song for the Butterflies by Bernice L. McFadden
Circe by Madeline Miller
Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss
Normal People by Sally Rooney

Have you read any of these? Where do you recommend I begin?
