Catalog Creepin Fall 2013: Macmillan,St. Martin’s Griffin, Bloomsbury-Walker’s Children & more!

Catalog Creepin’ is a feature here at The Perpetual Page-Turner that was inspired by the “Books to Pine For” feature over at Kristi’s blog and really fueled by my obsession with scouring catalogs from my favorite publishers to see what upcoming books I should be adding to my already-ready-to-topple-over To Be Read list. Each Catalog Creepin’ post will spotlight a different catalog from my favorite publishers and their imprints. I won’t be covering all publishers — just my personal favorites whether they be the big honchos or smaller publishing houses.


This time around I’m talking about the Macmillan group (& their imprints including Tor Teen, St. Martin’s Griffin, Henry Holt, Roaring Book Press, Entangled,  Bloomsbury-Walker, FSG, Feiwel and Friends).


No Cover But I’m Excited For and Will Update: Wild Card by Simone Elkeles


Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney



Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney (September 3, 2013 – Bloomsbury Children’s- Add To Goodreads)

I LOVED Daisy Whitney’s When You Were Here so I’m definitely excited for this one! It sounds romantic and magical with fantastical elements when a curse that trapped a girl into a painting is undone but the MC Julien, the person who saved the girl, falls in love with her which has devastating results and Julien must choose between love or saving great art.




Hostage Three by Nick Lake


Hostage Three by Nick Lake (October 15, 2013 – Bloomsbury Children’s – Add To Goodreads)

Ok this one has PIRATES. Real pirates. A family is on a yacht and suddenly find themselves taken hostage by the pirates and are being used as leverage. Sounds so good!!







Where The Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller


Where The Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller (September 24, 2013 – Bloomsbury Children’s – Add to Goodreads)

You all know how much I loved her debut novel Something Like Normal, yes? Based on that book alone I added her to my auto buy author list. You know that’s serious business right thurrr. I am SO EXCITED.






After Eden by Helen Douglas


After Eden by Helen Douglas (November 5,  2013 – Bloomsbury Children – Add To Goodreads)

I’m getting a little bored of dystopians unless they have something new to bring to the table and I am getting the sense this one does. At least I hope so. It is more of a show of the catalyst to what happens that TURNED a society into a dystopian one and I’m fascinated. There’s sci-fi elements and hints of some time travel of a boy from the future who comes to try to save the world from its fate.






Relativity by Cristin Bishara


Relativity by Cristin Bishara (September 10th, 2013 – Walker Children’s – Add To Goodreads)

I’m a sucker for parallel world stories right now. I can’t help it. I see it and I’m like BINGO…come to mama. Luckily it seems it is a THING for Fall 2013 so I WIN. The MC finds a wormhole wherein she can access a few parallel versions of her life based on things that could have happened very differently at crucial turning points in her life. I CANNOT wait for this.





The F It List Julie Halpern

The F-It List by Julie Halpern (November 12, 2013 – Feiwel & Friends – Add To Goodreads)

I’m getting all emotional just reading this premise plus I’m a HUGE fan of bucket lists. I have one. All sorts of them actually. Two girls who were best friends but broke off their friendship come back together when one of them reveals she has cancer and they work to complete her bucket list in her remaining days. I love that this story is about friendship!! WANT. WANT. WANT.






Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (September 10th, 2013 – St. Martin’s Griffin – Add to Goodreads)
What an aptly named title for her newest book because I just finished Eleanor and Park YESTERDAY and I am officially a fangirl for life. Seriously. It’s about two twin sisters who are absolutely fangirls for a series (like dressing up and all that jazz) and one has started to move away from the fandom scene and announces she doesn’t want to room together when they go off to college. Seems like a great story about standing on your own and discovering yourself outside of what is comfortable. I CANNOT WAIT.







This Song Will Save Your Life Leila Sales

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales (September 17, 2013 – Farrar, Straus and Giroux – Add To Goodreads)

THIS is one that is on the top of my list for Fall. I love books where music plays a part and this looks so great!! It says it’s “darkly comical” and I love books like that so I just am waiting with bated breath. I think it was originally named “My Suicide Playlist” so I’m curious about that element and also about the name change.





Tumble & Fall Alexandra Coutts

Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts (September 17, 2013 – Farrar, Straus and Giroux – Add To Goodreads)

AHHHHH. PRE apocalyptic??? YES. I AM IN. I AM SO IN. An asteroid is set to hit the earth and there is nothing that can be done to stop it. As the blurb says, “the only question is what to do with the time you have left?” GOSH that premise just makes me think already. WHAT WOULD I DO?







Which ones are you most excited for?? Any other 2013 releases from Macmillan or any of their imprints that may have flown off my radar?

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. This is a great post! I love adding to my TBR list 🙂 I’m SUPER excited about Trish Doller’s new book.

  2. Jamie, I definitely just added MORE BOOKS onto my already HUUUUGE tbr pile. Thanks a lot, yo. O.O BUT SERIOUSLY, all of those books sound awesome. I LUURVE the cover for Where The Stars Still Shine and Tumble & Fall. GAW-JUS. I’m excited for The F-It List, it sounds a bit like Before I Die. Thanks so much for sharing! <3

  3. Thanks so much for sharing these – I especially like the looks of ‘Relativity’ and ‘Tumble & Fall’. I tend to be a bit sensitive about fandom in fiction but the blurb for ‘Fangirl’ makes it sound as if Rainbow Rowell kind of gets it so I’ll definitely be checking that out!

  4. I immediately added the F- It List when I saw it in the catalog too! And Tumble & Fall is one of my most anticipated fall releases that I’ve seen! Lots of greatest to look forward to. 🙂

  5. So. Many. Amazing. Books. There are several here that I’d never even heard of which is just super exciting. Plus not only do they sound fantastic, it’s like a parade of gorgeous titles!

  6. The F It List looks awesome. Definitely adding it to my goodreads.

  7. Tumble & Fall sounds pretty awesome. Adding to my wishlist. 🙂

  8. I hadn’t heard of most of these books, so I’m glad you featured them. TBR, here we come! I think I’m most excited for Tumble & Fall which sounds similar to the film, Melancholia. Have you seen that? It was fantastic. I have no idea what I would do if I knew the end of the world was approaching (do a lot of traveling paid for by credit card, I suppose?), but it’s a fascinating subject.


  9. Awesome books this time!!! Adding Ink is Thicker Than Water, Tumble & Fall and Starry Nights to the TBR!!

  10. Love the cover of Tumble & Fall! Also, I think parallel reality stories are finally becoming a ‘thing’…I need to start reading some of them! Relativity sounds pretty awesome 🙂

  11. Basically, I just went over to Goodreads and added most of these books onto my TBR shelf. They all sound really good, but I think I’m looking forward to the F-It List and Starry Nights the most!

  12. I basically just added every single book in this post to my TBR pile except Fangirl…but only because I added it couple weeks back! Really great finds on here. I thank you very much for posting this!! Though my TBR pile doesn’t and I think it may be hunting you down…may want to avoid dark alleys for a while haha 🙂

  13. You’re most definitely an encourager to buy more books. Haha. I really like the sound of After Eden because I’m always wanted to know what exactly led society to be changed in dystopian worlds.

  14. I loved This Song Will Save Your Life — so much!!

  15. I’ve only just started reading Eleanor & Park, but I’m already hooked! Fangirl sounds amazing as well! Also, both covers are so pretty! 🙂

  16. Wow, so many great finds! Relativity looks AWESOME, as well as several others on your list. I love these Catalog Creepin posts!

  17. As predicted, I found several titles I neeeeeeed like NOW. 😀 I am really hoping I love E&P like you did, so we can be fangirls together. 🙂

  18. These all sound amazing! I’m especially intrigued by Fangirl and This Song Will Save Your Life.

  19. Tumble & Fall looks soooo cool. I’m totally interested in that one!
    And you know we’re going to Fangirl for Fangirl!!! 🙂

  20. I’m excited about all of them! I’m really looking forward to Fangirl and Hostage Three-I can’t wait to see what Nick Lake writes next and Hostage Three has pirates!!

  21. Ummm all of them except the Julie Halpern book? I’m sorry I can’t forgive what she did last year and the rant against bloggers that she went on. If she had apologized…

    But This Song Will Save Your Life? Tumble & Fall? Hostage Three? I want them all. And the others too. GREAT PICKS. This looks to be a great fall and I hope some of these are at BEA. Want, want, want!

  22. Relativity and F.List sounds awesome and I haven’t heard from the before so more books on my list lol!! Macmillan has amazing books and this list makes me seriously excited 🙂

  23. I really want to read Relativity and Tumble & Fall. I had seen those a few weeks ago (I think) when I was looking through the catalogs myself. I hope they’re as good as they sound, too bad I have to wait until they come out! Hopefully, they’ll be on NetGalley at some point.

  24. Wow SO many good ones! Tumble & Fall sounds super good (and kinda depressing). Also yes to Fangirl, Relativity, and This Song Will Save Your Life!!

  25. Yet again you have brought some new books to my attention that sound awesome. Didn’t realize Whitney was coming out with 2 books this year! Yay! And get on reading the Reece Malcolm List please. Amy Spalding is my new favorite author.

  26. Jamie this list is soooooooooooooooooo good, I had heard of like two books off this list, but have added all of them now thanks to you! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  27. I follow Jasprit on twitter and I saw her tweet about your post so I came right on over to check out your fabulous list.

    I SO did not know that Rainbow has another book coming out already! Thanks for that newsflash!
    I have yet to read her stuff but I’ve heard very good things about Attachments and E&P.

    The only other books on my TBR-list are INK IS THICKER THAN WATER and (only because of the cover – TUMBLE & FALL) 🙂


  1. […] one, and I have to thank Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner for introducing it to me through her Catalogue Creepin post. Starry Nights seems to have it all – a beautiful contemporary romance, a boy protagonist, […]
