With the overall Costa Book of the Year announced on January 27th, we're looking at a different nominee each day. The next title vying for the Costa Book of the Year is H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald, winner of the Best Biography.
Ali Smith, Emma Healey and Helen Macdonald are among this year's Costa Book Award winners, who will go on to compete for the overall Costa Book of the Year. Plus, a chance for Waterstones Cardholders to win the entire Costa Book Awards 2014 shortlist.
In the second part of our round-up of the year, authors battled it out in the Ultimate Writer contest, the Tour de France came to Yorkshire and ice-buckets splashed over the heads of our favourite writers. It was a truly spectacular summer. Let's take a look at the booky highlights from May through to August 2014.
We're thrilled to announce our shortlist for this year's Waterstones Book of the Year.
