UKYA Published in July

Half the year is officially over! But don't worry, there's plenty of super exciting UKYA releases this month and later on in the year. SOOOO MUCH to look forward to.

From this list, I'm most looking forward to Frail Human Heart! And Stone Rider and Lorali and Birdy. Which books are you most looking forward to reading this month?!


Too Close To Home by Aoife Walsh

Think this book might actually be middle grade? I'm not sure. I have it on my TBR shelf to tackle soon, so I'm including it. Published 2nd July!

Chicken House

The Baby by Lisa Drakeford

I've already read and reviewed this and shared an extract recently. Very fun story about teenage pregnancy and parenthood. Published 2nd of July!

Harper Collins

Fire Colour One by Jenny Valentine

I am such a huge fan of Jenny Valentine and have since read this book via Netgalley and loved it. What a great story about art and secrets and family. Definitely keep an eye out for this one!


Way Down Dark by James Smythe

Two very dark sounding books this month.  Both sound very interesting and I shall be delving in soon... 

Hot Key Books

Birdy by Jess Vallance

Two amazing books from Hot Key Books this month. I am definitely looking forward to Laura Dockrill's first foray into YA after her incredibly Darcy Burdock books and I've heard nothing but wonderful things about Birdy. And following Jess Vallance on Twitter is hilarious. Both books published 2nd July.


The Dark Light by Julia Bell

This book is published the 16th July and sounds really interesting. About an LGBT relationship in the midst of a cult setting.


Stone Rider by David Hofmeyr

Stone Rider will also be published on 16th July and it sounds amazing. My copy says a cross between The Hunger Games and The Road. I'm intrigued!


The Lost and the Found by Cat Clarke

Always a good month when there's a new Cat Clarke published! The Bookish Brits and I are reading this book for the July book club. Do join us. (And come back tomorrow as I will be reviewing this book AND interviewing Cat Clarke)

Random House

The Curious Tale of the Lady Caraboo by Catherine Johnson 

I've luckily already read both of these books and they are both wonderful.  Published today.

Simon and Schuster

I Knew You Were Trouble by Paige Toon

Three very gorgeous books from Simon and Schuster this month.  The Potion Diaries and All My Secrets are being published today and I Knew You Were Trouble later on this month, the 30th. I'm definitely looking forward to a new Sophie McKenzie and more Jessie Jefferson adventures...


Deep Water by Lu Hersey

Deep Water is quite a fun story incorporating Cornish myths and legends and was published yesterday, 1st July.


Frail Human Heart by Zoe Marriott

Ahhhh! I think this is the book I'm absolutely most excited to read. The conclusion to the Name of the Blade trilogy. *bites fingernails*

Which book(s) are you most looking forward to reading in July?!
