What We’re Excited About: November Books!

Happy Almost November Everyone! We’re trying to adjust to the shorter days and colder weather the best way we can…with new books! Here are just a few books being released in November that we can’t wait to read!

Becky’s List:

Instant Karma by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: November 3

I was a huge fan of Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series, and I was thrilled when I found out she had a new book coming out. In Instant Karma, we follow the main character, Pru, after she gains the power to inflict karma on those around us including, her slacker lab partner/mortal enemy, Quint, who just might become more. This rom-com sounds adorable, and I can’t wait to read it. 

Rent a Boyfriend by Gloria Chao
Release Date: November 10

Anyone who knows me knows I love fake date books. I don’t care what they’re about, I will read anything with a fake date premise. I was super excited to read about Gloria Chao’s latest book that blends fake dating with traditional Chinese culture. This book promises to be adorable, heartfelt, and hilarious, which is why I put it at the top of my TBR shelf.

Heartstopper: Volume 2 by Alice Oseman
Release Date: November 10

I loved the first book in Oseman’s graphic novel series about Nick and Charlie, who went from friends to more. I have high expectations for the second installment in the series that is just now (finally!) coming to the United States. I’m expecting adorable romantic interactions, sweet gestures, and heartfelt moments and I don’t think I will be disappointed.

Sarah’s List:

Beautiful Wild by Anna Godbersen

Release Date: November 3

The cover of this novel looks gorgeous. I haven’t read anything by this author before, but the potential of the romance in this book has me excited to read it. I love historical romances.

How to Pack for the End of the World by Michelle Falkoff

Release Date: November 10

If you have been around for a hot minute, you know that I love end of the world books in any context. I am excited for a new apocalyptic prospect. While the apocalypse doesn’t seem to be any closer in this world than in ours, the main character finds a group of like-minded individuals to beef up their survival skills.

The Surprising Power of a Good Dumpling by Wai Chim

Release Date: November 10

I am ready for a steamy romance with a layer of a parent’s mental illness challenges. This book discusses the immigrant experience when there is an added challenge of mental illness, something that does not typically happen in ya lit.
