Friday Friends: Faye’s Top Picks for Summer


Website | Twitter

Faye is a freelance PR superstar for authors and is a familiar face in the bookish community on Twitter, connecting readers with new books.

Below, Faye talks about five books she’s looking forward to getting her hands on this summer.

When it comes to looking forward, I have to admit that recently I’ve been so preoccupied that I’ve barely had a chance to! So when Heather approached me with this topic I was sure it would be the perfect chance to have a look and see what wonderful books are coming out soon. And it was so successful that I had a hard time narrowing down the choices until in the end I had to decide to only include YA books or the list would be far too long! So, without further ado, here are five books that I am dying to get my hands on!

Truth or Dare – Non Pratt

25458747Have you heard about this book yet? Because I have and it sounds incredible. I’ve seen it around in the hands of bloggers and tried very hard not to get green eyes of envy. I cannot wait for this book to be released so that I can finally get my hands on a copy and devour the book in a short space of time. Non is a very talented UKYA author.

Release Date: June 1st 2017

Flight of a Starling – Lisa Heathfield

34208318I’m going to put my hands up here and admit that I’ve never actually read anything else by Lisa – please don’t hurt me! – but I have heard a lot of amazing things and so I know that even though I haven’t read her back list, I am already itching to get my hands on her newest book! I’ve also already heard really good things about it too!

Release Date: June 29th 2017

Day 7 – Kerry Drewery

34741464Again, I have not read anything else by Kerry but have heard wonderful things about her previous book. I am sure this is a sequel to that book but that’s okay. When it comes out for release, I’ll just make sure that I’ve read the first book first! Oddly it being a sequel does not make me any less excited about this book.

Release Date: June 15th 2017

The Gender Games – Juno Dawson

34298222So Juno is one of those authors, like Non, who is currently taking the UKYA scene by storm. She’s come a long way and her books just keep getting better and better and I am definitely excited to see what she’ll be bringing to the table this time.

Release Date: June 1st 2017

A Change is Gonna Come – Various Authors

34946853Last, but certainly not least is this revolutionary book being published by Stripe books! This book is comprised entirely of BAME authors and I think that is actually amazing. It is going to be full of fantastic short stories that you’re really not going to want to miss. I will definitely be waiting on tender hooks for this one to be released!

Release Date: August 10th 2017
