Waterstones have put The Book of Hopes edited by Katherine Rundell and The Ratline by Philippe Sands on the Book of the Year shortlist for 2020. Sands' follow up to Baillie Gifford-winner East West Street was praised by the retailer as "a truly exceptional read," meanwhile Rundell's anthology has been commended as “a gorgeous collection of words and pictures that gifted many readers a ray of sunshine to move forward, to make sense of the world, or to get through the day.”

The 12-strong shortlist was drawn up by Waterstones booksellers, who each nominate a book they think is outstanding and would recommend to readers. The winner will be chosen by a Waterstones panel headed by James Daunt and announced on 3rd December.
