We’re wishing a very happy publication month to Readings' own marketing manager, Nina Kenwood, whose brand-new Young Adult novel, It Sounded Better in My Head, debuted at the top of last week’s bestseller list. This touching, warm and hilarious novel explores first loves and that strange, tremulous time between the end of high school and the start of uni. You’ll be longing for long, hot summer days and sandy beaches. Congratulations Nina!

Dav Pilkey fans should rejoice as well; his latest, For Whom the Ball Rolls (Dog Man, Book 7), is the most recent instalment in his beloved series. Get your young readers giggling this week. It also, in our humble opinion, takes out the title for ‘Best Pun Title’. Pun-tastic.

And finally, Saturday 10 August was Love Your Bookshop Day, and we were lucky enough to have author Tai Snaith hosting a Story Time event at Readings Kids. Her beautiful new picture book, You Might Find Yourself, is a charming and lovingly handcrafted book that invites readers to examine notions of resilience and collaboration, while on the winding path that is life.
