Martina Cole – The Good Life 9th Oct

We are always really excited about any Martina Cole new release. She has sold 13 million books and gets better with each new title. This one promises to be another huge hit; hard hitting, gripping and with some great characters.

Ian Rankin – The Beat Goes On 9th Oct

This is an absolute must for Rebus fans or a great access point for anyone who wants to become one. A collection of short stories, some classics, some previously unpublished, spanning the career of one of Britain’s favourite fictional detectives. If you haven’t tried short stories before then take a chance, they’re pieces of bite sized brilliance.

Anthony Horowitz – Moriarty 23rd Oct

We loved the first of Anthony Horowitz’s Sherlock Holmes novels and were so pleased when it was selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club. Given the runaway success of the BBC TV series we’re hungry for any Sherlock story we can get and the pacing and tone of the Horowitz version is just perfect.

5 Seconds of Summer – Hey Let’s Make a Band 9th Oct

Tipped to be the new One Direction, we love this cheeky band and we’re sure this book will be full of fun facts and never before seen photographs. With 1.5 million album sales worldwide, the 5SOS campaign for world domination is well on the way and this book will tell you all you need to know about the new fab four!

Ed Sheeran – A Visual Journey 9th Oct

The music sensation that is Ed Sheeran ends his phenomenally successful year with this unique insight into his life. Based on photographs and artwork created by his childhood friend Phillip Butah, this stunningly produced book is a must have for any Ed Sheeran devotee.

Graham Norton – The Life and Loves of a He Devil 23rd Oct

We love Graham’s outrageous sense of humour, and from his TV show, radio programme and of course Eurovision- he’s guaranteed to make you laugh. Here in his first book in 10 years, Graham presents his autobiography in a new and innovative way by recounting all the things he is passionate about in life. From his dogs to Dolly Parton, Graham takes the reader on a revealing and no doubt raucous journey through his life and career.

Opal Plumstead – Jacqueline Wilson 9th Oct

We’re sure that like us, many of you grew up reading Jacqueline Wilson. She’s one of the nation’s best-loved authors, read by children of all ages, yet it’s still an incredible feat that this is her 100th book. The quality of her writing gets better and better every time and Opal is definitely one of her most unforgettable heroines yet. Recommended for readers 8 years and up (but in reality it’s perfect for any age!)

The Parent Agency – David Baddiel 9th Oct

David Baddiel is a born children’s storyteller who had us laughing out loud with his fantastically funny, fast-paced debut children’s novel. The Parent Agency is an epic wish-fulfilment adventure for every child; a world where children are allowed to choose their parents. He’s definitely a contender for David Walliams’ ‘King of Funny’ crown!
