There are some pretty big releases hitting the shelves in September, including the follow up to something called That Handmaid’s Tale… But there are also plenty of other books coming out next month that look just as tempting. As always, inclusion isn’t an endorsement and books may be available on different dates in different territories/formats (and sometimes they just change). Dates stated are generally for the UK print edition unless otherwise noted.
