My to-read list on Goodreads is out of control. I have so many more to-be-released books saved than I do books that are already published. I thought it might help me stay organized and on top of my most-anticipated books if I shared new releases that are coming out this month that I cannot wait to get my hands on. All links below take you to Goodreads, where you can find full summaries for each book.
Matched by Ally Condie was one of my favorite 2010 new releases. It was the first dystopian book that I’d read in a long time and it kick-started by must-read-everything-in-sight craze. Crossed is the sequel the Matched. It was released November 1st. Go get it now! I’ll be doing a review of this one soon.
A broken-hearted girl with a punk rock name, a vintage clothing shop, a guy with secrets, and a story about friendship – that’s what The Sharp Time by Mary O’Connell is about. All of those things sound like a recipe for a perfect book. I’m also in LOVE with that cover – the tones + the mood = perfection! This book will be released November 8th.
I admit – this cover looks really silly and super corny. However, the idea of applying training tips for dogs to the social queen bees at school sounds downright hilarious. It puts a whole new spin on the phrase ‘alpha-dog’. Fetching by Kiera Stewart also comes out on November 8th.
I can’t wait to get my hands on a physical copy of this book. I hope the cover has some sort of texture because it looks so awesome! This girl, Juliette, hasn’t touched anyone in 264 days because the last time she did, The Reestablishment locked her in a cell for murder. The world is falling apart around them – will Juliette be able to use her gifts to help save people? This book is being compared to the Hunger Games, which sit HIGH on my radar. I hope Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi lives up to my expectations. It comes out November 15th.
This must be the month for new dystopian releases; this is the third in my list of that category. One girl from the Republic (i.e. the straight and narrow) is never supposed to come in contact with one guy from the slums. When her brother is murdered, our bad boy is the number one suspect. Together they discover the truth behind their country’s secrets. Legend by Marie Lu is the first in a series and comes out November 29th.
What November releases are you lusting over? Do any of my picks strike your fancy? I can’t wait to cuddle up with these! Looks like it’s going to be a month full of suspense, thrill, and dystopias.
