Hi guys! How are y’all? This seems to be a very slow month for new releases, but that’s not gonna stop me from getting excited. Cause even though there’s only a few new books I’m interested, there’s some really good ones. So here’s my very short list of anticipated November releases:
Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan – November 6th
This is my most anticipated November release. It’s a YA fantasy story about a girl who’s chosen to be one of the kings consorts, then falls in love with one of the other chosen girls. I’m so excited to see a f/f relationship in a YA fantasy book and I know we’re all in love with this cover.
Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix by Julie C. Dao – November 6th
I really enjoyed the first book in this dulogy, which is an Asian-inspired Snow White retelling. Book one is told from the perspective of the evil queen and focuses on what happened before the fairytale. In the second book we follow her step-daughter and I’m so excited to see this well known story play out in a new setting.
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson – November 6th
Skyward’s set on a planet where humans are under constant attack by mysterious alien starfighters and follows a teenage girl who wants to be a pilot. She discovers the wreckage of an ancient ship, which appears to have a soul. I’m always here for sentient space ships, and if this book has world-building as good as Sanderson’s fantasy novels – it’s going to be awesome.
Empire of Sand by Tasha Suri – November 13th
Empire of Sand is an Indian-inspired fantasy novel about a woman who’s magical powers make her a coveted pawn in imperial court politics. I think the synopsis is pretty vague, but the fact that it’s inspired by Mughal India is enough to spark my curiosity.
