Tamora Pierce was one of the reasons I became a bookworm as a teenager! The likes of Sarah J Maas and Leigh Bardugo reference her as an influence, which should be enough for every YA reader out there to get excited about this new series.
I’m intrigued by dementia and trying to work out how best to work with sufferers in my volunteer work in a nursing home. Jules is a London neurologist specialising in this area and explores who we are as our memories are lost. So many friends of mine have parents with dementia so this book has enormous reach.
I have read and loved some of Kelly’s previous books and am so excited we are publishing her now. She is a fantastic storyteller – you will be hooked from the first word and likely not have a dry eye by the end.
I raced through this in a one-sitting read. Louise turns the form of love inside out and explores the deep, dark and wild veins of it that intoxicate her vulnerable, infuriating and searingly-honest characters.
I’m so excited for this book to enter the world because I’m the biggest Beauty and the Beast fan out there. The classic story told from the Beast’s POV? Yes please, give me all of the romantic angst!

This is great spooky adventure story for kids. I have only had a sneak peek at this book and after only a couple of chapters I am desperately waiting to read more. If you love a good ghost story then this is a must-read.
I don't know what it says about my personality but I love a good end of the world story. This has been described as WORLD WAR Z meets THE PASSAGE and I can't wait to read this (entirely fictional, of course) account of the end of the world as we know it.

I can’t wait for all my friends to read Holly Bourne’s How Do Like Me Now? next year so we can all talk about it! If you’ve ever grown weary of the perpetual happy, filtered front we put on social media, stayed in that not-so-great relationship just a little bit longer than you should have, or heaved a sigh of exasperation when you receive yet another wedding invitation, this book is for you (probably all your friends too).
I cannot wait to read Michael Robotham’s THE OTHER WIFE. I am a huge fan of Michael’s writing and an even bigger fan of Joe O’Loughlin. Combine those two things with this captivating hook - A SECRET WIFE. A SECRET LIFE. AND A KILLER WHO KNOWS – and I am going to find it very hard to wait until July to read it.
I can’t wait to read THE BOTANIST'S DAUGHTER. An exotic history of a female botanist in Cornwall and Chile in the 1900s, linking in with another female botanist in contemporary Australia, and the intriguingly named Devil’s Trumpet. The cover is a lusciously rich botanical treat to the eye and begs to be picked up!
It is a historical novel, set during the Napoleonic Wars, but it reads like a thriller. It’s beautiful but harrowing, literary but intensely gripping with a plot that just drives it relentless, gorgeously, cinematically descriptive writing, historical but very contemporary in its observations, it will appeal to all kinds of readers.

Most anticipated read of 2018 is the second instalment of the NEVERMOOR series! I adored THE TRIALS OF MORRIGAN CROW and I cannot wait to get back to the Wundrous Society to see what Mog, Jupiter, Fen and Hawthorne get up to next. October is too far away!
I'm a long term fan of both Hank and John Green having watched their shared YouTube "Vlogbrothers" videos and other community YouTube channels since my early teenage years. I am so excited to see what Hank's wild imagination can conjure up!
As Digital Marketing Coordinator at Hachette Australia I love books! I also have a heart so I definitely meet the criteria to be on the Books With Heart team. I’m addicted to chocolate, #TorsoTuesday and you’ll find a mix of historical & contemporary romance (with a sexy Scot in a kilt) on my iPad. Jamie Fraser is my #MCM everyday.
Drowning in wedding invites? Gifts for the fourth baby shower this year sending you broke? Running out of dresses to wear to Hen’s Nights? Tori Bailey’s got you covered.
