I can’t believe I’m sitting here about to talk about November releases. First of all, that’s my birthday month which I’m not ready for and second of all, are there usually this many amazing titles releasing in November? I’ve narrowed them down as much as possible according to my personal tastes but still. I’m like 7 months behind on new releases, just chill books. Just chill.
You’ve Reached Sam by Dustin Thao | Clearly, I’m not prepared for how much this book is going to wreck me because I just mistyped the title as a You’ve Got Mail parody. This is not You’ve Got Mail. From what I understand, this follows a girl whose boyfriend dies, and one day he picks up the phone. Am I ready for a heart-wrenching story about grief? No. Do I want to read it? Heck yeah.
Gilded by Marissa Meyer | SHE’S BACK WITH ANOTHER RETELLING! And this time it’s Rumpelstiltskin! I love how the cover gives off fall vibes. I’m not going to lie, Rumpelstiltskin would not have been my first pick for a retelling but we’ll see how I feel about it*. And to make this even more interesting, it’s marked on Goodreads as the first book in an Untitled Series. Thus concludes my rambling.
*the market may be oversaturated with beauty and the beast retellings but we still don’t have a marissa meyer one and i’m sad.
Dreams Lie Beneath by Rebecca Ross | I’ve heard great things about this book from some fellow blogger friends, so I’m excited for it! I don’t much about it except that there are some magicians and a competition and a curse and lush writing. That was more than enough to sell me.
Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen | I don’t know, I saw POC mermaids and thought “wow that looks good let’s add it to the list” and apparently said mermaids are taking on gods from West African mythology. Can’t say I regret adding it.
All of Us Villains by Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman | This one I’m still on the fence about. I know it has magicians in a competition, but I don’t really like Christine Lynn Herman due to the whole “Emily Duncan” debacle earlier this year. We’ll see.
So that’s it! What’s your most anticipated release of November?
