A YA fantasy that retells Shakespeare’s classic tale of ill-fated lovers. A psychological thriller that follows a group of people brought together over a woman’s disappearance. A daughter who visits the small town where her mother vanished, seeking answers but finding dangerous secrets.
Here are the November book releases I’m excited to read…
1. These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong
I’m reading this YA fantasy novel at the moment and it is stunning. Chloe Gong has created a macabre, but undeniably romantic and thrilling world of rival gangs, forbidden love, monsters, and magic – all of it spilling out into the dangerous streets of 1920’s Shanghai. Oh, and it’s a retelling of Romeo and Juliet too, in case you still need convincing to read it!
2. Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell
Lisa Jewell is a renowned thriller author I still haven’t read. But I have religiously been adding her books to my TBR in the hope that one day I’ll actually get round to reading them.
This latest novel – a psychological thriller – follows a group of people whose lives intersect after the disappearance of a young woman. It sounds chilling, and hints at the characters hiding who they really are. I can’t wait to read it.
3. In The Deep by Loreth Anne White
A female cop investigates a man’s murder, while fearing she’s being manipulated by his unpredictable and damaged widow (who has a divorce and her daughter’s death raging in her past). I love the synopsis, and I love the sound of the character dynamics – two women, one after the truth, the other seemingly playing a game to hide the truth.
It’s a unique and intriguing story premise.
4. Don’t Look For Me by Wendy Walker
I am actually obsessed with how good this book sounds.
A young woman, Molly, disappears, and with no leads the case goes cold and everyone assumes she’s simply run off and doesn’t want to be found. Then, years later, a new lead comes to light. Molly’s daughter, Nicole, returns to the small town where her mother was last seen and starts to investigate. But the deeper she digs, the more dangerous her situation becomes…
5. Beautiful Wild – by Anna Godbersen
I don’t usually read historical fiction, but I like Anna Godbersen’s writing and this novel sounds like a hopelessly escapist and romantic adventure. After a hurricane disrupts their voyage, a young woman finds herself stranded on an island in the middle of the Pacific with two dashing suitors. What a scenario – I’m already dying to see which guy she chooses!
