Book Blast: August ’21

Book Blast: August ’21 is my selection of 40 of my favourite books publishing this August. It was a difficult task to choose just 40 books from the 2,500 that are publishing. It won’t surprise you to know that I haven’t read all 2,50, but I have read a lot! I hope there’s something in this selection for everyone.

This month includes a stunning new picturebook from Alexis Deacon and Viviane Schwarz. It’s a wonderful story about the development of consciousness and epistemology for children 2+. The beauty is its profound simplicity that genuinely works for all ages. There are some exciting new debut; look out for Every Line of You by Naomi Gibson and The Peculiar Tale of Tentacle Boy from Richard Pickard. I had a great time reading nonfiction this month and learnt so much from books like Chris Thorogood’s

Book Blast takes place live on the last Friday of each month at 7.00 pm (UK time) You are very welcome to join the live session on Zoom. The benefit of attending the live event is that you have an opportunity to win all 40 of the books mentioned and there are some other great prizes too. But if the timing doesn’t suit you then replays will be posted on YouTube, Facebook and this website.
