BBNYA 2022 Semi-Finalists

The first round of BBNYA ended not too long ago and we’re already into the second round. This week, the semi-finalists were announced and all the panellists received their excerpts for the second round. We’ve got eight 10k word excerpts to read this time before the deadline in September. I’m really excited to get started with mine. I also added a few of my favourites from the last round to my TBR and wishlist. I’m definitely buying more books soon!

Here are the semi-finalists of 2022!
