Top Ten Books from the UK – June 2018

A wonderful selection this month, with a real spread of titles across many genres. We’re really excited about The Tall Man—our Book of the Month for June—and expect it to be one of the most talked about thrillers of the year. There’s also the beginning of a great new YA series—Bookshop Girl—which is sure to appeal to all bibliophiles with a romantic heart. Also, look out for Holly Bourne’s How Do You Like Me Now? which is being touted as this generation’s Bridget Jones. Enjoy!

BOOK OF THE MONTH

The Tall Man
Phoebe Locke
Wildfire
UK Edition

The Tall Man is sure to be one of this year’s most celebrated and compelling thrillers. A creepy tale that blends Stranger Things and Stephen King with contemporary domestic terror – and creates something vivid, singular and utterly captivating.

Set across three decades, The Tall Man traces the strange events that culminate in the trial of a teenager charged with murder. How much is real? Does the Tall Man really exist? And did he really cause the disappearance of a young mother?

It will have you reading long into the night!

An Ocean of Minutes
Thea Lim
Quercus
UK Edition

Praised by Junot Diaz as ‘extraordinary’, An Ocean of Minutes draws comparisons with The Time Traveller’s Wife. But this tale of a woman sent 13 years into the future to save the man she loves, cuts deeper and more true. Heart-breaking and haunting.

Love Will Tear Us Apart
Holly Seddon
Corvus
UK Edition

The third novel from the bestselling author of Try Not to Breathe, is a wholly engaging exploration of a seemingly happy marriage. With twists and turns, it is a tense and profound look at the pressures and complexities of modern love and friendship.

Her Name Was Rose
Claire Allan
Avon
UK Edition

There has been a revival in ‘Hitchockian’ thrillers – ones that evoke the same sense of dread and suspense as the great master. Her Name Was Rose is a brilliant example, with a central character who will stop at nothing to replace the woman she watched die…

I Will Be Complete
Glen David Gold
Sceptre
UK Edition

Glen David Gold is the author of the bestselling historical novel Carter Beats the Devil – but I Will Be Complete is a different kind of history: his own. This sublime memoir is the story of his early life, living—alone and apart—with an extremely eccentric mother…

Bookshop Girl
Chloe Coles
Hot Key Books
UK Edition

Chloe Coles is a bookseller at Foyles, and her YA debut is set amongst the stacks and dust of a bookstore called Bennett’s. Paige loves Bennett’s, so when it is threatened with closure, she starts a campaign to save it – with romantic and hilarious consequences…

Conan Doyle for the Defence
Margalit Fox
Profile Books
UK Edition

Not content with writing some of the most ingenious crime stories of all time, Conan Doyle also helped solve real life mysteries. This true story relates his attempt to free a Jewish immigrant who was imprisoned for over 18 years after being convicted of murder. Convincing and gripping.

Boy Underwater
Adam Baron
HarperCollins Children's
UK Edition

Adam Baron’s Boy Underwateris a classic children’s tale to delight, amuse and inspire. Cymbeline Igloo has never been swimming. His mother has never allowed him near water. But why? On the day of his first swimming lesson, Cym begins to find out why…

With or Without You
Shari Low
Aria
UK Edition

In the tradition of Jojo Moyes and Marian Keyes, comes a clever, recognisable and unusual romance. On Millennium Eve, Liv and Nate decide to split. But is it the right decision? Over the next twenty years, we see both possibilities play out, for good or ill…

How Do You Like Me Now?
Holly Bourne
Hodder & Stoughton
UK Edition

Already hugely popular with NetGalley members, Holly Bourne’s first novel for adults is a cracker. Tori Bailey is staring down the barrel of 30 and wondering what on earth to do as everyone around her marries off. Has she the courage to do what she wants?

News from NetGalley

Live Your Best NetGalley Life

Your input directly influences the enhancements we make to NetGalley. And we’ve heard you: As book advocates and industry professionals, your schedules are important. Staying organized is a cornerstone to being productive, so today we’re introducing some new features to help.

Your Weekly Checklist

You asked, we listened! Our members love lists as much as we do. Now you can receive a weekly Checklist email to help you prioritize the books you need to read and review first—so you don’t miss their optimal time-frame. Here’s a sneak peek at the email, which you can turn on/off within your Profile (Additional Info > Subscriptions).


Complete Feedback Process

As you know, your reviews and feedback are essential to publishers, authors, and other readers. NetGalley members are expected to provide feedback for the books they access, in exchange for getting free digital review copies. When you finish reading a book, make sure to submit your reviews, star ratings, opinions, and industry list nominations.

We’ve made some small enhancements to the Feedback section, including splitting into two pages: Review & Opinions. Depending on your member type, you’ll need to submit the first page (Review or Opinions) before the next page will appear. Plus, we want to acknowledge that there are legitimate reasons why you may not be able to submit feedback for certain books—so we’ve added a “Will Not Give Feedback” option to allow you explain why you aren’t reviewing, and to better organize your Shelf. Submitting “Will Not Give Feedback” will move the book off your Give Feedback list, but will not count towards your overall feedback ratio. Read more here.

Our goal is to help, when we can, resolve any issues that are preventing you from submitting feedback. We will be carefully analyzing the “Will Not Give Feedback” responses to improve the NetGalley service for our members and publishers. And you will still be able to submit full feedback later (for instance, if a file issue is resolved).


Reminders to Share Reviews

Once you’ve submitted feedback, you can increase the visibility and value of your reviews by sharing to your blog, social platforms, and retail sites. This is especially important around the publication date. We’ve made it easier to see which reviews are ready to be shared by adding a new section of your Shelf (Feedback Sent > Post to Retail Sites).

 

We take our goal of helping books succeed very seriously, and we know you do too. We hope these changes will help you create your optimal NetGalley workflow and give you more tools to communicate with us and authors/publishers.

Thanks, as always, for your dedication and support.
The NetGalley Team
