Stylist's culture critic competition shortlist

Stylist recently invited budding book critics to submit a 100 word review of their favourite read by a female author for the chance to win the opportunity to write our Quiet Night In page for an upcoming issue of the magazine. Having received plenty of fantastic entries, the Stylist team set about the task of whittling them down to a shortlist of ten, which you can now read in the gallery below.

We then asked Stylist readers to choose their favourite review from the ten shortlisted, which we combined with our panel's votes. It was incredibly close, by the eventual winner was Rebecca Cosgriff with her review of Emma Donoghue's Room. Rebecca's reviews page will appear in an upcoming issue of Stylist, so be sure to watch out for it. In the meantime, we'd like to congratulate all our shortlisted finalists, whose reviews you can read in the gallery below...
