Alas, this is one day late…HOW DARE I?! 😂 My birthday is in a few days and I’m so ready to have a book-buying spree. SO. READY. It really doesn’t take much for me to be happy. 😜 My birthday celebrations are pretty low-key; just a small meal with the family and CAKE! (Can’t have a birthday without cake!! 🙌👌❤️)
This month’s releases isn’t too bad when it comes releases but it could always be better. My TBR had no trouble increasing though, so there’s that. Why can’t books release all at the same time?? Actually, that is a horrible idea. I would be bankrupt in minutes, and I would literally be drowning in books because I need time to process and mourn before starting another book.
Anywho, these are my Most Anticipated for November!
Bad Romeo Christmas
By Leisa Rayven
RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 21ST
From the internationally bestselling author of BAD ROMEO, BROKEN JULIET, and WICKED HEART comes an anthology of sweet and sexy novellas of beloved characters Ethan and Cassie, Liam and Elissa, Josh and Angel, plus the gang from The Grove.
Have Yourself A Sexy Little Christmas: An Ethan and Cassie Novella
Ethan and Cassie’s first Christmas with the Holt family should be nothing but jolly. Sure, Cassie’s a mess trying to impress her future in-laws with the perfect casserole, but when an unexpected blast from Ethan’s past shows up beneath the tree, the season gets a whole lot more serious—and sexy.
The Naughty List: A Liam and Elissa Novella
After being apart for months, Liam and Elissa are making up for lost time on a secluded island, where they think they’re free to explore each other’s bodies in peace. But when it turns out their Christmas sanctuary isn’t as deserted as it first seemed, and pictures of a hot, naked Liam surface to break the internet, their Christmas dreams turn into a nightmare.
Happy, Sappy New Year: A Grove Novella
When the gang from the Grove gets together at a lavish New Year’s Eve party, it’s like no time has passed. Except Elissa and her best friend Josh are dating Hollywood royalty, Jack and Zoe have been hooking up in secret, Connor’s new girlfriend wants to murder Cassie, and Erika’s mystery man has everyone talking. Before midnight, shocking revelations are made, industry tongues are wagging, and the poor mistletoe is ready to pass out from overuse.
I’M OBSESSED WITH THE STARCROSSED SERIES BY LEISA RAYVEN. 😍
I look for every single scrap of extra scenes or more book news. ANYTHING. So when this showed up on my Upcoming Releases, I had to put it on the list. Rayven writes amazing, heart-tugging stories. It’s a bonus that the first two books are (kinda, sorta, not really) inspired by Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. It’s so good. I recommend reading Rayven’s first three novels before reading this!
By Cyn Balog
RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 1ST
Secrets. Obsession. Murder. Victoria is about to discover just how dangerous it can be to lose yourself.
Victoria Zell doesn’t fit in, but she’s okay with that. All she needs is the company of her equally oddball boyfriend, Andrew. She doesn’t care what anyone else thinks…until magnetic, charming, mysterious Z comes into her life, and she starts lying to everyone she knows in an effort to unravel his secrets.
And then something terrible happens. Someone is dead and it’s time for Victoria to come clean. Interspersed with news clippings and police interviews, Victoria tells her story to Andrew, revealing her dark, horrible secrets…secrets that have finally come back to haunt her.
I haven’t had a thriller/mystery novel to eat up in a while, and I think this is the perfect book to break this awful hiatus. I definitely have a sweet spot for mysteries, and solving murders. I adore that stuff!!
Side note: Isn’t that cover the most ominous, suspenseful beauty ever?!? The scissors make it so sinister! *squee*
By Marissa Meyer
RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 8TH
Long before she was the terror of Wonderland — the infamous Queen of Hearts — she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.
Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the yet-unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend and supply the Kingdom of Hearts with delectable pastries and confections. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next Queen.
At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the king’s marriage proposal, she meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship.
Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
After the conclusion of Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles, I’ve been waiting anxiously for her next release!! And looky here!! A very interesting, very highly anticipated novel inspired by the “heartless” Queen of Hearts! (see what I did there? 😉) I’m really excited to see what Marissa Meyer will bring to the table, and all the best to her writing career because I’m already looking forward to her upcoming works. 🙂
The Sun Is Also a Star
By Nicole Yoon
RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 1ST
Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.
Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.
The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
A good friend of mine sent a picture of the prologue and I got immediately intrigued by it. From that little glimpse, I could already tell Yoon’s writing is poignant and luring. So shout out to her (you know who you are) for showing me this promising novel. The story sounds so endearing, and full of potential for a wonderful YA Contemporary Romance novel.
Bad Blood (The Naturals #4)
By Jennifer Lynn Barnes
RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 1ST
When Cassie Hobbes joined the FBI’s Naturals program, she had one goal: uncover the truth about her mother’s murder. But now, everything Cassie thought she knew about what happened that night has been called into question. Her mother is alive, and the people holding her captive are more powerful—and dangerous—than anything the Naturals have faced so far.
As Cassie and the team work to uncover the secrets of a group that has been killing in secret for generations, they find themselves racing a ticking clock.
New victims. New betrayals. New secrets.
When the bodies begin piling up, it soon becomes apparent that this time, the Naturals aren’t just hunting serial killers.
I’VE BEEN WAITING SO LONG FOR THIS BOOK TO COME OUT, YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
These books are soooo goood. Remember how I said that Unnatural Deeds by Cyn Balog might be the one to break the ongoing mystery book hiatus?? Yea, if I can get this book first, this one will be doing that instead. OHMYGOD, I’M SO EXCITED. I’ve been wanting to get back in this world for the longest time!!!! 😱😱😱
