November New Releases I’m Excited For!

Top Ten Tuesday(25).jpg

At least there aren’t quite as many books being released this month as previous months….. Still, my TBR is just never going to recover and I’m okay with that.

These are listed by release date and honorable mentions (books I either have no interest in or haven’t read their predecessors yet) will be posted at the bottom! Each title is also linked to their Goodreads page if you’d like to add them!

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada

Release Date: November 7th

A hacker main character, DNA that can be recoded and allow people to change how they want, and a plague that has brought the human race to the brink of extinction. Sounds pretty badass and I have an ARC of this I’m starting soon.


Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Release Date: November 7th

Basically a good old fashioned superheroes vs. villains book which I am here for.


Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

Release Date: November 7th

The sequel to “Vengeance Road” and I’m all for that gorgeous cover and a YA western.


Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne

Release Date: November 7th

A sort of typical sounding YA fantasy with a healer and a soldier forced together to spy on an empire, I love fantasies with a political edge though!


Jade City by Fonda Lee

Release Date: November 7th

Magical jade is used to enhance warrior’s abilities in order to protect their island but when a new drug is released that allows others to use the jade as well leading to a clan war on the island. I think this sounds really interesting and exciting!


The November Girl by Lydia King

Release Date: November 7th

I’m not quite sure how to describe this one so I’ll just leave the synopsis here:

I am Anda, and the lake is my mother. I am the November storms that terrify sailors and sink ships. With their deaths, I keep my little island on Lake Superior alive.

Hector has come here to hide from his family until he turns eighteen. Isle Royale is shut down for the winter, and there’s no one here but me. And now him.

Hector is running from the violence in his life, but violence runs through my veins. I should send him away, to keep him safe. But I’m half human, too, and Hector makes me want to listen to my foolish, half-human heart. And if I do, I can’t protect him from the storms coming for us.

This sounds really unique!


Devil in Ohio by Daria Polatin

Release Date: November 7th

Horror is always up my alley! This one is about a new girl, Mae, that shows up in town and is accompanied by a lot of strange happenings, Jules soon discovers that Mae used to belong to a strange cult that wants her back.


The Becoming of Noah Shaw by Michelle Hodkin

Release Date: November 7th

So I included this book only because I know a lot of people are probably looking forward to it since it’s a spin off of the Mara Dyer series. I personally have not read that series yet but I’m not sure it’s my cup of tea.

The Speaker (The Reader #2) by Traci Chee

Sequel to “The Reader” which I have not read yet but it’s on my TBR!


Artemis by Andy Weir

Release Date: November 14th

NEW ANDY WEIR BOOK! And it’s about a heist on the moon! Sold.


The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

Release Date: November 14th

A con artist with healing abilities set in a magical Middle Eastern kingdom. A unique sounding fantasy and it seriously sounds amazing!


Whichwood by Tahereh Mafi

Release Date: November 14th

A spin off of “Furthermore” about a girl who prepares the bodies of the dead but a pair of strangers turn up and change her world for the better.


Into The Drowning Deep by Mira Grant

Release Date: November 14th

Two words: sea monsters. Isn’t that all you need?! A crew is assembled in order to hunt down ancient sea creatures in the Mariana Trench. I am here for it!


Runebinder by Alex R. Kahler

Release Date: November 14th

A new fantasy about an unending war between once human monsters and corrupt necromancers and only Hunters can fight against them. Hopefully this is as good as it sounds!


No Saints in Kansas by Amy Brashear

Release Date: November 14th

I have an ARC of this one and it’s essentially a retelling of Truman Capote’s true crime novel “In Cold Blood”.


Fragments of the Lost by Megan Miranda

Release Date: November 14th

Jessa is asked to pack up her ex-boyfriend’s room after his accident and as she boxes his belongings away she starts remembering that their relationship may not be what she thought and questions what really happened to him.

I like a good YA mystery/thriller and this one sounds like it might be worth while.

November Releases I Want To Get My Hands On

top-ten-tuesday20

Hey guys! This is just a quick little post that I wanted to do because who doesn’t love talking about new releases, right? I’m also a little behind on scheduling posts this week so this was a list I could manage quickly right away! Whoops!

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

Release Date: November 8th

Heartless

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

So I’m pretty sure EVERYONE is excited for this book, am I wrong? Nope I know I’m not. Normally I wouldn’t want to get this book but I’ve seen great reviews for it and even though I wasn’t a fan of “Cinder” I think I will probably enjoy this one. Also I really like Alice in Wonderland and I looooove the Cheshire Cat and always love to see how he is portrayed in retellings!


Flashfall by Jenny Moyer

Release Date: November 15th

Flashfall (Flashfall #1)

Orion is a Subpar, expected to mine the tunnels of Outpost Five, near the deadly flash curtain. For generations, her people have chased cirium—the only element that can shield humanity from the curtain’s radioactive particles. She and her caving partner, Dram work the most treacherous tunnel, fighting past flash bats and tunnel gulls, in hopes of mining enough cirium to earn their way into the protected city.

But when newcomers arrive at Outpost Five, Orion uncovers disturbing revelations that make her question everything she thought she knew about life on both sides of the cirium shield. As conditions at the outpost grow increasingly dangerous, it’s up to Orion to forge a way past the flashfall, beyond all boundaries, beyond the world as she knows it.

Does this not sound very interesting? I also think it’s being promoted as a YA Red Rising so I’m guessing if you liked that then this may appeal to you, I know I’m going to check it out.


Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Release Date: November 22nd

Scythe (Scythe, #1)

In a world where disease has been eliminated, the only way to die is to be randomly killed (“gleaned”) by professional reapers (“scythes”). Citra and Rowan are teenagers who have been selected to be scythe’s apprentices, and—despite wanting nothing to do with the vocation—they must learn the art of killing and come to understand the necessity of what they do.

Only one of them will be chosen as a scythe’s apprentice. And when it becomes clear that the winning apprentice’s first task will be to glean the loser, Citra and Rowan are pitted against one another in a fight for their lives.

Well to me nothing sounds bad about this book it sounds purely awesome and I’m very excited to read it. Maybe I’m just a morbid person who likes the idea of reapers and fights to the death in my books…who knows?


Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst

Release Date: November 22nd

Of Fire and Stars

Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile lands. But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire—a dangerous gift for the future queen of a kingdom where magic is forbidden.

Now, Denna must learn the ways of her new home while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria’s formidable warhorses before her coronation—and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine (called Mare), sister of her betrothed.

When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two work together, each discovers there’s more to the other than she thought. Mare is surprised by Denna’s intelligence and bravery, while Denna is drawn to Mare’s independent streak. Soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.

But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms—and each other.

I’ve been super excited to get my hands on this book for a while I mean not only am I a huge fan of fantasy books in general but this one has an F/F romance where the princess gets the girl! It sounds awesome1 Unfortunately I’ve seen quite a few negative reviews for it but I’d still like to give it a try….
