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

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

Launched in 1971, the Costa Book Awards is one of the UK's most prestigious and popular book prizes and celebrates the most enjoyable books of the year by writers living in the UK and Ireland.

We're giving away five sets of Costa Book Awards category winners, plus £20 to spend at Costa Coffee, a Costa Coffee travel cup and a bag of Costa Coffee Roast and Ground coffee.

You'll win the following five brilliant books, one of which will be named Costa Book of the Year later this month:

  • The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins, winner of the Costa First Novel Award, a gothic romance about the twisted love affair between a Jamaican maid and her French mistress in 19th century London.
  • Middle England by Jonathan Coe, winner of the Costa Novel Award, which tells the story of a changing country and the cracks that appear within families and between generations.
  • The Volunteer: The True Story of the Resistance Hero Who Infiltrated Auschwitz by Jack Fairweather, winner of the Costa Biography Award, which is a landmark account of one of the greatest unsung heroes of WWII, Polish underground operative Witold Pilecki
  • Flèche by Mary Jean Chan, said by the judges to be 'a staggeringly beautiful mix of the personal and politic', winner of the Costa Poetry Award.
  • And Jasbinder Bilan's Asha & the Spirit Bird, winner of the Costa Children's Book Award, which is a thrilling adventure set in contemporary India.

The Costa Book of the Year is announced on Tuesday 28th January!
