Forthcoming titles for 2012: Electric Monkey

Egmont's Electric Monkey imprint has released some fantastic titles since it launched, such as 'Skin Deep' by Laura Jarratt, 'Shift' by Em Bailey, 'How to Keep a Boy as a Pet' by Diane Messidoro and heaps more.  There's plenty still to come for 2012 so get excited about some of these fabulous books.

Revived by Cat Patrick, published 2nd July 2012

The world fades to nothing, and before I have the chance to think another thought . . . I’m dead.
Daisy West has died.  Five times.

Part of a secret programme testing a revolutionary drug which brings the dead back to life, each death brings a new name, a new town, a new life. The programme is built on secrecy; friends have to be kept at arms length, lies have to be told and being invisible at school is a bonus.

Daisy is used to this way of life and is happy to do things on her own. Mostly.
But then she meets Matt and finds a love she can’t let go. No more deaths, no more lies, this is the life that Daisy wants to live.
But can she make it happen?

 Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler, published 6th August 2012

 Min Green and Ed Slaterton have broken up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they broke up. A movie ticket from their first date, a comb from the motel room they shared and every other memento collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend, will be dumped.

Ciao for Now Crazy European Chick by Joe Schrieber, published 1st October 2012




Perry and Gobi are back with an almighty bang . . .

 Zombies Don’t Cry by Rusty Fischer, published 1st October 2012
(This is the US cover as UK cover art not yet available)

 Maddy Swift is just an ordinary girl, until the fateful night when she is struck by lightning and wakes up face down in a puddle. Then it’s goodbye to all things Normal – such as breathing and having a heartbeat – and hello to yellow vision and a whole new Afterlife.

Turns out there’s a lot more to being a zombie than shuffling and groaning, but surviving school as one of the living dead requires a totally different set of skills. And things don’t get any easier when Maddy realises that she’s not the reanimated student at Barracuda Bay High . . .

High school comedy with romance and zombies. Being dead hasn’t been this much fun since Buffy!

I'd love to know which titles everyone else else is most excited about! I'm particularly looking forward to 'Revived' by Cat Patrick as I adored her debut novel 'Forgotten' and have been waiting for more from her ever since.   


  1. I'm dying to read Revived! And I was very excited to have a copy of Why We Broke Up, it sounds like such a sad/sweet story.

  2. I'm really looking forward to Why We Broke Up. I've heard some amazing things about the book, and I really want to check it out for myself.


Thank you for leaving me a comment. I love reading them!
