Book trade always goes on about Super Thursday in the run up to the holidays but for books I’m actually interested in, spring is full of Super Thursdays. Just look at the smorgasbord of titles out on the second! In reality, my current reading speed means I’ll be reading few of these, but those I’ve marked with a P are ones I’ve pre-ordered with good intentions…

Dates mostly refer to UK print editions, and so books may already be out in different formats or territories. Links go to Goodreads and * indicates I’ve received a review copy from the publisher.
