  2. Their Brilliant Careers by Ryan O’Neill (2016) (Aust)
  3. The Dig Tree by Sarah Murgatroyd (Aust)
  4. The three books of the Captive Prince series by CS Pacat (Aust)
  5. Aurora by Kim Stanley Robinson
  6. Beatlebone by Kevin Barry
  7. The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro
  8. How to be Both by Ali Smith
