Books I’m looking forward to this autumn…

So so many new books to read and adore, so little time. I have more books on the ‘To Read’ shelves than I care to admit, but still can’t stop myself eyeing up some of the titles coming out this autumn. Here’s a selection of the kids’ and teen reads I will inevitably end up purchasing despite muttering to myself about how I really shouldn’t, I’ve enough to be reading, but they just look so must-read-now-ish…

– Meg Rosoff, There Is No Dog – new Meg Rosoff! What more needs to be said? God is a teenage boy called Bob. This sounds brilliant and zany and delightfully Rosoffesque.

– Sarah Webb, Love and Other Drama-ramas – the fourth Amy Green book, out in September.

– Denise Deegan, And For Your Information – the second Butterfly Novel, this time from Sarah’s perspective. Really looking forward to it, particularly seeing Alex, Rachel et al through a different set of eyes.

– Lauren Oliver, Liesl and Po – Lauren Oliver has already written two exquisite (and very different) YA novels, but this is her first children’s book (for 9+, I think) – a fantasy, ghost-y novel which sounds terrific.

– Cathy Cassidy, Marshmallow Skye – second of the Chocolate Box Girls series.

– Caragh M O’Brien, Prized – sequel to Birthmarked, one of my very favourite YA dystopias ever.

– Ally Condie, Crossed – sequel to Matched.

– Ann M Martin, Ten Rules for Living with My Sister – it’s Ann M Martin, guys.

– Jeff Kinney, Cabin Fever – sixth Wimpy Kid book.

– Mary Pearson, The Fox Inheritance – sequel to The Adoration of Jenna Fox, though it sounds totally different. Set 200+ years in the future, and from a male perspective. Should be interesting though.

Anything else out this autumn I should be getting excited about?
