What’s new this month

A few awesome reads to wrap up this year!

11/7 – The November Girl – by Lydia Kang33509082

On an island in Lake Superior a half-human half-elemental named Anda chooses to shelter runaway Hector. Anda is the daughter of the Lake, and the sailors that perish in her storms keep her island alive. Hector is fleeing violence, but Anda is not a safe harbor for humans despite her human heart. I love any story featuring magical beings born from nature and this sounds like an icy clandestine romance perfect for a cold winter night!

3356687111/7 – The Speaker – by Traci Chee

This series comes highly recommended and I can’t wait to see where it goes! Sefia and Archer are on the run from the Guard and planning their next moves. As Sefia continues to decipher the Book’s secrets, Archer focuses on freeing boys from impressors. But as his need for battles and blood grows, Sefia fears she will no longer recognize him. If they want to avoid a war, they must subvert the Guards’ plans before it’s too late, but Sefia has a lot of mysteries to solve before they stand a chance. There’s a lot happening in this series and I’m sure many more puzzles to look forward to!

11/14 – City of Brass – by  S.A. Chakraborty32718027

A con-woman named Nahri with healing abilities accidentally summons a djinn warrior who whisks her away to the mythical (very real) City of Brass where legends live and fierce court politics threaten both of their lives. Nahri must uncover what her connection is to this strange city before it’s too late. The inspiration and research behind creating this world reminds me of Alex Bracken’s attention to detail, so I’m sure this will be equally immersive! This debut sounds rich in world-building and mythology and I can’t wait to explore it!

3156398211/14 – Whichwood – by Tahereh Mafi

This companion to last year’s Furthermore is set in the same whimsical, dangerous world of magic, color, and adventure. But Laylee has none of that: her job is to wash the bodies of the dead to prepare them for the afterlife. It is depressing, lonely work. She can barely remember earlier times with her father and happiness and laughter. That is going to change when some familiar strangers arrive and offer their friendship. I adored Furthermore and I’m so excited to return to this world with new characters!
