The 100 plus titles that didn't make it into the Top 30
We wanted to publish the next 70 nominated titles to create a Top 100 Women's Watershed Fiction list. But as so many of the books at the lower end of the scale received exactly the same number of nominations, we've had to increase the list. So, here are the next 102 titles - we hope you enjoy reading them!
