Megan, the writer of the Book Birds blog, did some bookish community service for us — again!
She created a complete list of YA book releases for the first time in 2018 and soldiered on to create one for 2019 as well. Publishers or agents (or readers!) can ask her to include their book if it isn’t listed by sending her a quick email. This is an invaluable resource for book bloggers, publications and readers alike!
“I needed to plan my book buying in advance and I couldn’t find one resource where I could see all of the books coming out by month,” Megan told Fictionist in 2018. “I initially started thinking I would only use it myself, but once the list passed about 50 books I thought others might find it useful.”
Megan spent about five weeks compiling the first list in 2018, she said, and used a lot of information from Goodreads and other online resources like author and publisher websites.
A huge thank you to Megan and everyone who sent her titles for her 2020 list. This month-by-month will make life easier for a huge amount of the bookish community.
