Autumn's hottest must-reads: 20 brilliant new books you need to know about

Bookworms, listen up: autumn 2014 is officially Season of Great Books.

As models and designers gear up for fashion week, those in the literary world are having their own moment.

In a miraculous stroke of timing and luck, lauded names from the world of fiction and celebrity have conspired to conjure up a stellar line-up of exciting new reads. Basically, anyone who's anyone is bringing out a book in the next few months.

In the celebrity corner, we have Girls star Lena Dunham, doyenne of British style Vivienne Westwood and acerbic SNL comic Amy Poehler fronting up a collection of hotly anticipated autobiographies.

Moving over to the literary heavyweights, and Ian McEwan, Hilary Mantel, Margaret Atwood and Haruki Murakami all have new novels in the running.

As far as potential best-sellers are concerned, our fingers are itching to read Us, the latest book from One Day's David Nicholls, and Sophie Hannah's re-writing of Hercule Poirot in The Monogram Murders.

As we said, it's an exciting time.

Get up to speed with the latest must-reads and pimp your bookshelf/Kindle to the max with our selection of autumn must-reads:
