By September 3, 2019 New Releases

We try and bring you at least one new release blog every single month, and with that come lots of suggestions of new books to read, from various authors. Often those lists will contain debut novels, but this month we’re spoiled for reliable choice as some of the best known current authors in the world are releasing books!

September sees new releases from global sensations such as Stephen King, Margaret Atwood, and Ann Patchett. New novels from firm favourites like Rick Riordon, Cecilia Ahern, and Jessie Burton.
