Preparing for the Nibbies

Shortlists of contenders for the 2018 British Book Awards—aka the Nibbies—have just been released in seven categories. Among those classifications is Crime & Thriller Book of the Year, which pits the following novels against one another:

The Girl Before, by J.P. Delaney (Quercus)
The Midnight Line, by Lee Child (Bantam Press)
The Dry, by Jane Harper (Abacus)
Behind Her Eyes, by Sarah Pinborough (HarperFiction)
Spook Street, by Mick Herron (John Murray)
He Said/She Said, by Erin Kelly (Mulholland)

In addition, Joseph Knox’s thriller Sirens (Doubleday) is vying with five rivals for Debut Book of the Year honors.

Winners of all this year’s Nibbies will be announced during a splashy ceremony on Monday, May 14, at London’s Grosvenor Hotel. The British Book Awards are organized by the UK magazine The Bookseller.
