We are often asked to let you know about the books that are due to be released, what are the hot picks and what books we should all be looking out for. With the arrival of the eBook and self published Indie novels it is all but impossible to be able to share with you every single book that is due for release each week but we can share with you the latest hardbacks being released.
This week we have selected five new releases for the week commencing September 12th, we apologise to your TBR lists in advance.
