5 New Books To Read This November

By Casey Rose Frank

Daylight Savings has ended, and our evenings are getting longer; it’s the perfect time to burrow under a blanket and build up a beautiful new TBR (to be read) pile.

November in particular has some great new books dropping, almost like the publishers knew that we’re settling in for some bookish hibernation.

Heartless by Marissa Meyer
November 8

YA isn’t just for younger readers, especially not when it comes to Meyer’s latest relling. Cath is a young baker who yearns to fall in love, but her life is turned upside down when she deals with the consequences of being the King of Heart’s object of affection. A thrilling prequel to “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, this book has the perfect amount of escapism.


Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick
November 15

Anna Kendrick has the kind of easy wit and self-deprecating humor that it’s all too easy to imagine that you could be best friends if not for the star’s busy filming schedule. Kendrick’s collection of essays promise her thoughts on pop culture and what the road from a New England childhood to Hollywood fame looks like.


Turbo Twenty-Three by Janet Evanovich
November 15

I’m the first to admit that the last ten or so books in the Stephanie Plum series have been disappointingly familiar, with the same plot points and devices dutifully trotted out each book. However, it hasn’t stopped me from reading, or at least from listening. Lorelei King is a great narrator and sometimes when you’re folding laundry or logging miles for those holiday car trips you want something nonsensical to enjoy. With explosions, spandex outfits, and ill-timed dead bodies practically guaranteed, it’s worth another trip to Jersey.


The Fate of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
November 29

If you haven’t already read the first two book in this fantasy trilogy, you still have time before the Johansen concludes her tale of Kelsea, the reluctant by powerful queen. I want to dive headfirst into gushing about the surprising revelations of the second book, but I won’t for fear of spoiling things for those who haven’t read it yet. It’s a richly complex world that you’ll be happy to sink into. Reading the third book can get you over the post-Thanksgiving slump.


Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham
November 29

A behind the scenes look at Gilmore Girls then and now, need I really say more? I’m already charmed by this book and I’ve only seen the cover.
