November 2019 Book Releases
Welcome to the best month of the year! Okay, perhaps I am slightly biased as it is my birthday month. However, I am sure you will agree that the November 2019 book releases are beyond impressive. There are titles that I have been waiting for months to get my hands on! If you haven’t checked out what is releasing this month then here are my top picks to get you started.
Queen of Nothing
The final book in Holly Black’s ‘The Folk of Air’ trilogy has to be the most anticipated YA fantasy I have seen in a long time. By now a lot of us have fallen in love with the cunning fae, we’ve drawn our battle lines and tried to convince ourselves that we know who the good guys are. I am ready to be blown out of the water. I am prepared. Okay, I am not sure any of us are prepared for this series to end. If you are a YA fantasy fan and haven’t started this series yet then I highly recommend it. You can currently pick up The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King on kindle for 98p each!
The Secret Chapter
I love the Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman. It is a fantastic historical fantasy series with hints of steampunk, mystery and a little romance, which is refreshing to read. The world building is great, creating a system based on the balance between order and chaos. The library does its best to preserve books from all different worlds (alternates), with specialist librarians being sent on missions to retrieve unique works. I love the fantastic cast of characters including dragons, fae, one alternates version of Sherlock Holmes and Irene, the librarian who is always caught up in the action. In The Secret Chapter Irene and her assistant Kai team up with an unlikely band of misfits to pull off an art heist. If they succeed then they can access a rare collection that they need. However, if they fail they risk the wrath of a very dangerous villain….
It is going to be a brilliant book and I can’t wait to read it.
Who else is a huge Brandon Sanderson fan? He is a fantastic fantasy author and now has this wonderful YA Sci-Fi series too. My partner has read every single Sanderson book yet Skyward (book one) is now one of his favourites. Spensa wants to be a hero and dreams of being a pilot. After being trapped on a planet with the remnants of the human race, she longs for the stars. The truths Spensa has so dearly held about her father have been torn to shreds but she is sure there is more to the story. Her whole world is a lie. Spensa will travel to the end of the galaxy to save humankind and to discover the truth.
The Starless Sea
Erin Morgenstern fans will be thrilled when they finally get their hands on The Starless Sea! It was in 2011 that we visited The Night Circus and this year I predict that we will discover an even more fantastic tale. What would you do if you found a tale from your childhood in the pages of a mysterious book? Zachary, a graduate student, is desperate to make sense of his discovery. He uncovers a series of clues, which set him off on his adventure towards an ancient library and magical world.
The Guinevere Deception
You know that I can’t resist a good retelling! Especially, as this is the start of a whole new series. There have been some great retellings this year including Once & Future, which is another Arthurian retelling that I reviewed here. Whose imagination can resist the lure of Camelot? Not mine. The premise of The Guinevere Deception is very exciting, with Guinevere being a changeling and the real threat that everyone should fear. Sent to marry King Arthur, a complete stranger, Guinevere has to navigate the traditions of court whilst keeping her true identity hidden. Gah! I’m really excited for this one!
