Although mainly dominated by adult books, the list does include the latest title from award winning children's author Geraldine McCaughrean, Not the End of the World. The 24 books were selected from an original shortlist of 300, by a panel of judges that included authors Fay Weldon and Marian Keyes, as well as TV presenter Claudia Winkleman.
