First Flush goes live!

Upcoming fiction, non-fiction, children’s and young adult titles for June 2021

Ever wanted to know what books are coming out next month? 

Books Ireland is excited to announce that the new, digital, fully searchable First Flush is now live! First started in 1976, First Flush is the Books Ireland selection of all Irish-published and Irish-interest books released every month.

It’s a unique place for book-lovers to find forthcoming titles in fiction, non-fiction, children’s and young adult for the next month—by Irish publishers, or with an Irish theme or author.

Just launched for forthcoming books in June 2021, with an archive already in place for May 2021, we will be updating this to extend our back catalogue.

Updated at the start of each month, First Flush will continue to be a valuable resource for readers, booksellers, libraries and researchers. View upcoming fiction for June here.
