It’s that time of the year when the shortlist for the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance has been announced and this year’s nominations are absolutely wonderful. Having read and adored ‘You Had Me At Hello’ by Mhairi McFarlane, I hailed that story as one of my favourite books of 2012 and ‘The Wedding Diaries’ by Sam Binnie was a hilarious insight into the drama and chaos of wedding planning and how easily it can spiral out of control.
The nominations revealed for the shortlist are -
CHARLOTTE STREET, Danny Wallace (Ebury Press)
YOU HAD ME AT HELLO, Mhairi McFarlane (HarperCollins)
SUMMER DAYDREAMS, Carole Matthews (Little Brown)
WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE, Maria Semple (Orion)
ELEANOR & PARK, Rainbow Rowell (Orion)
THE WEDDING DIARIES, Sam Binnie (HarperCollins)
