3 New Novels We’re Reading This Month

Whether you’re packing for the BEACH or your MORNING COMMUTE, these three unputdownable books will make for a CAPTIVATING READ …



Together by Julie Cohen

Following the lives of Robbie and Emily, this story is told in reverse from 2016 to 1962 when the couple first meets, revealing along the way the secrets their relationship has been built on – some more devastating than others. Captivating, moving and so beautifully written, this heartbreaking story will stay with you for a long time. Published on July 13 by Orion, €16.99.


New People by Danzy Senna

New People is Danzy Senna’s first novel since 2004. In the mid-1990s Maria and Khalil, a young couple living in Brooklyn, New York, find themselves in a fast-changing world. A subversive and captivating novel of race, class and identity in contemporary America, one you’ll want to read in one sitting. Published on August 1 by Riverside Books, €15.



White Villa by Emily Hourican

Emily Hourican’s first novel The Privileged, was a compelling, cleverly constructed page-turner about a closeknit group of girlfriends and the changing dynamic of their friendships. Her second, White Villa, is about a group of millennials on holiday in a sun-drenched villa in Ibiza – it’s every bit as good, with such well-drawn characters, you just have to find out what happens to them. Conjuring long, hot summer days, it’s the perfect holiday read. Published on August 3 by Hachette, €15.
