Published in August (2011)

Here are some of the teenage/YA titles that are being published in the UK in August 2011. I will put a link to this post and previous and subsequent "monthly" lists in my sidebar. January's list can be found here, February's here, March's here, April's here, May's here, June's here and July's here. Title links go to Please let me know of others to add to the list. In general I have not included re-issues and have stuck to UK publishers.

Monthly lists for 2010 can be found here.

I have tried to identify all the British authors which I hope will be useful to those doing the Bookette's excellent British Books Challenge.

  1. Surprisingly I don't want to read many of the Biritsh books this month. Although I am looking forward to the new Meg Rosoff. She counts for the challenge but having heard her speak at the conference with a very American accent, I really can't think of her as British in my brain.

    Thanks as always for doing this post.

  2. I already have copy of "The Power of Six" by Pittacus Lore (It is the sequel of "I Am Number Four)

    It was a great book. You will surely get more of what you will paid for.

    I am waiting for the next book in the series. (The Lorien Legacies)
