This is a bumper crop of books to look forward to in September! I cannot wait to read the conclusion of the Scholomance trilogy and I’m super intrigued by Babel. What’s the book you’re most looking forward to next month?

Dates mostly refer to UK print editions, and so books may already be out in different formats or territories. Titles marked with a * are ones Iโ€™ve received review copies of andย Pย means they are on my pre-order list.
