I have no idea who will win but I can't wait to start reading them!

My guess is Life after Life or Bring up the Bodies.

I've read only the Kingsolver book which I don't think is strong enough to win. Picador just sent me a copy of the Mantel book (which given the reviews is probably the strongest contender). And I just bout Where'd You Go Bernadette which looks very witty and original. I also just bought Life After Life which is getting VERY good reviews.

It's a strong list this year, but my vote is on Bring Up the Bodies.
