Published in May (2011)

Here are some of the teenage/YA titles that are being published in the UK in May 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 and April'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.

  1. This is a great month for British authors, it seems. I haven't even heard of some of the titles you've discovered so I'll have to go and read the blurbs.

  2. These lists are so useful. Thank you for doing them :D

  3. Please could you add my book to the list? I'm Kit Berry and the book is Magus of Stonewylde, published by Gollancz on May 5th. During the next three months, the next three books in the Stonewylde Series will be published. Thanks!
