Win the Costa Book Awards category winners and £20 to spend at Costa


Perk yourself up this January with five sensational books and delicious coffee!

We're giving away ten sets of Costa Book Awards category winners, plus a £20 Costa gift card, a Costa travel cup and a bag of Costa Roast and Ground coffee.

The Costa Book Awards celebrate some of the most enjoyable books of the last year. You'll win the following five brilliant books, one of which will be named Costa Book of the Year later this month:

  • The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton, winner of the Costa First Novel Award, which also won the Books Are My Bag Readers Award Novel Award.
  • Normal People by Sally Rooney, winner of the Costa Novel Award, which the judges said was "a trailblazing novel about modern life and love that will electrify any reader".
  • The Cut Out Girl by Bart van Es, winner of the Costa Biography Award, about a young girl who was taken away from the Nazis to live with a foster family.
  • Assurances, "a war-poem both historic and frighteningly topical", by J.O. Morgan, winner of the Costa Poetry Award.
  • And Hilary McKay's The Skylark's War, winner of the Costa Children's Book Award, which the judges described as "as perfect a novel as you could ever want to read."

The Costa Book of the Year is announced on Tuesday 29th January!
