Recommended Reads 2013

One of our favourite things about working at a literary agency is being able to read on the job. Here are just a few of our favourite reads from the many fabulous books published in the UK this year:

The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
An enchanting fairytale fantasy about Agatha and Sophie – two very different girls, who discover their true selves at a school unlike any other. The book itself is beautifully presented, with an eye-catching cover and some great illustrations throughout.

Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Karou and Akiva’s love story continues in this sequel to the unforgettable Daughter of Smoke and Bone. This is an equally powerful tale, beautifully told from multiple points-of-view, which once again leaves the reader wanting more.

The Dead Girls Detective Agency by Suzy Cox
A fun supernatural mystery revolving around teen ghost Charlotte’s attempts to unmask her killer – with a little help from her friends. A great cast of characters make this an unmissable read.

After Eden by Helen Douglas
A story about love, time-travel and saving the world. This is a refreshingly original young adult SF romance, set in Cornwall. The author makes great use of the novel’s location to set the scene.

United We Spy by Ally Carter
An explosive end to the author’s popular Gallagher Girls series of books. Cammie and her friends are all set to graduate from spy school, but first they have one final mission to undertake.
