My top September recommendations!

The Bone Ships, by RJ Barker

Why? Dragons, magic, and fighting of course! A seafaring fantasy filled with witty and gritty characters, humour and a rich mythological system-what’s not to love.

The Ten Thousand Doors Of January, by Alix E. Harrow

Why? Magic doors, supernatural beings and odd artefacts- what could be more mysterious? With a headstrong main character like January, you can never tell what may happen next!

The Things We Cannot Say, by Kelly Rimmer (US)

Why? Emotional, heart-breaking and beautiful- this is a historical fiction that you cannot miss. With two storylines that beautifully intertwine, and a war with complex consequence, this is an incredible story that is a must read.

T.A.D, by M.D. Neu

Why? Angels, love, and fate- this is an emotional story full of friendship and self acceptance. With serious messages, supernatural angels and love of all types, this is a wonderful and hard hitting story.


What you should look out for next month!

The Things We Cannot Say, by Kelly Rimmer (UK-17/10/19) – War, heart-break and secrets. Follow two amazing stories that intertwine and create an emotional, hard-hitting tale.

Doing Time, by Jodi Taylor (17/10/19)- Time travel, humour and secrets that result in murder, suspicion and an odd kinship between an unusual group.

Mistletoe, by Alison Littlewood (10/10/19) – A gothic winter horror, perfect for reading by the fire! With an isolated and dilapidated farm, weird haunting visions and past grief, this is a suspenseful tale with many twists and turns.

Angel Mage, by Garth Nix (17/10/19) – Fantasy, Angels, Magic and secrets. This is a story of love, betrayal and magic, with beastlings and a curious Ash Blood plague affecting the people of Ystara, and a group of unlikely allies who try to solve a historical mystery still affecting everyone today.
