Below is a list of all of the books We think will be good in November. If you would like to look at any of our other month release, go check them out over on the month release tab at the top of the page. Let jump right in to the books then

Nov 6th
blurb: You’ve heard this story before. Woman feels her biological clock ticking and gets someone to knock her up.
Not for love, for baby.
Crazy, right?
That’s what I thought.
Then I found out my fiancĂ© had a vasectomy. The life I thought I had? Nope. Suddenly I’m 33, and I don’t even have a kissing buddy.
When my mom’s health takes a turn and I wind up back in my hometown of Fate, Alabama, I tell myself to leave things up to…well, you know.
Then I see Gabriel McKellan. He’s Fate’s most famous son, a bestselling author who is beautiful, complicated, and living just below me. In addition to his plus-sized brain, Gabe’s well-endowed in other ways, and great in bed to boot. I would know. He's my ex husband.
When I suggest The Plan, I don't imagin…

Prep school confidential (prep school confidential 1) by Kara Taylor

Blurb: In this breathtaking debut that reads like Gossip Girl crossed with Twin Peaks, a Queen Bee at a blue-blooded New England prep school stumbles into a murder mystery.

Anne Dowling practically runs her exclusive academy on New York’s Upper East Side—that is, until she accidentally burns part of it down and gets sent to a prestigious boarding school outside of Boston. Determined to make it back to New York, Anne couldn't care less about making friends at the preppy Wheatley School. That is, until her roommate Isabella’s body is found in the woods behind the school. 

When everyone else is oddly silent, Anne becomes determined to uncover the truth no matter how many rules she has to break to do it. With the help of Isabella’s twin brother Anthony, and a cute classmate named Brent, Anne discovers that Isabella wasn’t quite the innocent nerdy girl she pretended to be. But someone will do anything to stop Anne’s snooping in this fast-paced, unputdownable read—even if it means framing …

Broken Shelves (unique minds 3) by Anne Malcom

Blurb: Gina: 
Freshly brewed tea. Earl Grey, loose leaf. 
Rain on the windowsills. The smell of library books. Escape into worlds greater than this. 
A quiet life. Maybe boring, but boring was never dangerous. Until I saw what I was missing out on. Who I was missing out on. The man who shattered my boring, safe life and lay it to ruin. 
The man I’d been in love with since I was a teenager. Who I’d been invisible to since I was a teenager. 
The man who just happened to be a world-famous rock star. 

Whisky. Neat. Leave the bottle. 
Crowd of hundreds of people. No, make it thousands. All shouting my name. Live fast. Die... 
Die? I’m too young, too famous and far too badass to die. Death doesn’t happen when you stop breathing, it’s what happens before that. Death is the monotony of life. The grave? Well, all the greats live there. You’re not a rock star until you die before you’re thirty. The grave doesn't bother me. 
Just the quiet. 
That is death in the life of roc…

Unzipped by Anne Mercier

Sorry for not posting on monday. I just want to let you know my school load is crazy so if i dont get to post a lot i am sorry but i will try to post as much as i can.
Blurb: No rules. 
No inhibitions. 
No obligations. 

Just one night to indulge in Forbidden Fantasies. 

Unzipped is a 10,000 word erotic short story, book 1 in the Forbidden Fantasies erotic short story series. My thoughts: So this was a different story than what i am use to. At first i was a little confused because i did not get were the story was going. it will take you a minute to understand what was happening but it was still well written. If you are a fan of Anne Mercier you will like this book. I am still unsure of myself of how i fell about this book. it was steamy  but romantic.

Wendy Darling Vol. 2 Seas by Colleen Oakes

Wendy Darling Vol. 2 Seas by Colleen Oakes
Goodreads Blurb:Wendy Darling: Seas finds Wendy and Michael aboard the dreaded Sudden Night, a dangerous behemoth sailed by the infamous Captain Hook and his bloodthirsty crew. In this exotic world of mermaids, spies, and pirate feuds, Wendy finds herself struggling to keep her family above the waves. Hunted by the twisted boy who once stole her heart and struggling to survive in the whimsical Neverland sea, returning home to London now seems like a distant dream—and the betrayals have just begun.

Will Wendy find shelter with Peter’s greatest enemy, or is she a pawn in a much darker game—one that could forever alter not only her family’s future but also the soul of Neverland itself?
My Thoughts: One of my favorite parts about this series is how “dark” it is. Peter Pan is not the sweet innocent little boy we thought we knew. If you have read book 1 then you are very familiar with his evil nature and he doesn’t let up in book 2. Wendy spends mos…

Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children #1) by Seanan McGuire

Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children #1) by Seanan McGuire
Goodreads blurb:Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children
No Solicitations
No Visitors
No Quests

Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere... else.

But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.

Nancy tumbled once, but now she’s back. The things she’s experienced... they change a person. The children under Miss West’s care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.

But Nancy’s arrival marks a change at the Home. There’s a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it’s up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of the matter.

No matter the cost.
My thoughts: I found this book during one of my booktubers book hauls and the story sparked an interested. It is a very shor…

Gunpowder Green by Laura Childs (Tea Shop Mystery #2)

Goodreads blurb:
“The Indigo Tea Shop, Charleston’s favorite spot of tea, has just come out with its latest flavor: Gunpowder Green. Theodosia Browning cannot wait to hear its praises as it is unveiled at the annual yacht race. But when she hears the crack of an antique gun meant to end the race, a member of Charleston’s elite falls dead. Theodosia has a hunch that his demise was no accident—and will go out of her way to prove it.”
My Thoughts:

The thrilling sequel of the Tea Shop Mystery books and it really did not disappoint. It had the same cheeky and thrilling concept as the first book, but an even more haunting murder. It was like the first one but with just enough background information to refresh the reader or catch them up if this is the first book they’re reading. The conversation was still sassy between the three workers of the Indigo Tea Shop, but they were determined more than ever to catch the killer. They all become involved in solving the mystery, and lent their own knowle…

Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard 2) by Rick Riordan

Blurb: Thor's hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon--the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn't just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can't retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer's return is the gods' worst enemy, Loki--and the price he wants is very high. My thoughts: Rick Roirdan has so many amazing books. I like that he stepped in the realm of Norse Mythology. I feel that there are not many fictional books out there about Norse myths. It took me a long time to get into this book. It is not that the book is bad it just is a little too descriptive at times and I tend to get bored. I use to love his books but the last couple has been super hard for me to get into. For me in this b…

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1) By Victoria Schwab

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1) By Victoria Schwab
Goodreads Blurb:There’s no such thing as safe in a city at war, a city overrun with monsters. In this dark urban fantasy from author Victoria Schwab, a young woman and a young man must choose whether to become heroes or villains—and friends or enemies—with the future of their home at stake. The first of two books.

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s …

The Cigarette Girl by Carol Wolper

Goodreads Blurb:
“Put a smart girl in Hollywood, land her a job writing screenplays for blow-em-up action stars, give her a ruinous penchant for bad boys, and reward her with a fearless determination to find "Mr. Maybe", and you have this absolutely engaging, hilariously dead-on comic novel about a maverick's pursuit of love and happiness in the wild west.”
My Thoughts:
I got this book from a thrift store for $2 and that’s pretty much what I would want to buy it for in stores. I truly did not enjoy this book. I was hoping I would since the beginning of the book I really was hooked. It was funny, witty, and it had what I was looking for in the story. It what was described on the back cover, until about halfway through. It did not have the story I wanted or was hoping for. Even if it was how the main character wanted it to end, I can't help but feel disappointed in the entire storyline. It just ended and was abrupt at that.
There was no character development and it just w…

Labyrinth Lost ( Brooklyn brujas 1) By Zoraida Cordova

Blurb: I was chosen by the Deos. Even gods make mistakes.

Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in a generation…and she hates magic. At her Deathday celebration, Alex performs a spell to rid herself of her power. But it backfires. Her whole family vanishes into thin air, leaving her alone with Nova, a brujo boy she can’t trust, but who may be Alex’s only chance at saving her family. My thoughts: this book was different from what i normally read but i enjoyed it. I think that this author  brings in something different to the table. she is bring in a lot of Latin American culture to YA books. I don't think that there are a lot of books out currently that have a latin culture in them. This book was fun entertaining, and real. the main character describes how every girl feels in high school. it had you sucked in from the moment you started reading. I also love mythical and magical element. we see a lot of books out there that have Greek, Roman, and Norse myths in it. What about the ot…

The Merciless by Danielle Vega

The Merciless by Danielle Vega
Goodreads Blurb:
Forgive us, Father, for we have sinned

Brooklyn Stevens sits in a pool of her own blood, tied up and gagged. No one outside of these dank basement walls knows she’s here. No one can hear her scream.

Sofia Flores knows she shouldn’t have gotten involved. When she befriended Riley, Grace, and Alexis on her first day at school, she admired them, with their perfect hair and their good-girl ways. They said they wanted to save Brooklyn. They wanted to help her. Sofia didn’t realize they believed Brooklyn was possessed.

Now, Riley and the girls are performing an exorcism on Brooklyn—but their idea of an exorcism is closer to torture than salvation. All Sofia wants is to get out of this house. But there is no way out. Sofia can’t go against the other girls . . . unless she wants to be next. . . .

In this chilling debut, Danielle Vega delivers blood-curdling suspense and terror on every page. By the shockingly twisted end, readers will be faced wit…

Death by Darjeeling by Laura Childs (Tea Shop Mystery #1)

Goodreads Blurb: 

“Theodosia Browning, owner of Charleston’s beloved Indigo Tea Shop, lives in a town steeped in history- and mystery. While catering an event, she is busy serving teas and scones, while an esteemed guest is found dead-his hand clutching an empty teacup. All eyes are on Theo...who is now trying to save her reputation and track down the real killer.”

My Thoughts: I started reading this series on a recommendation from my mom, we own the entire series, and I figured why not start it now. It’ll be fall soon and what’s nicer than a hot cup of tea on a chilly night. This book was everything I wanted and more. A feel good quick read with mystery, excellent characters, witty banter, and character development. There is plenty of excitement but also a dip into antique and historical Charleston as well. It truly is a wonderful book and I will be definitely reading the rest of the series.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Blurb: It's the year 2044, and the real world is an ugly place.

Like most of humanity, Wade Watts escapes his grim surroundings by spending his waking hours jacked into the OASIS, a sprawling virtual utopia that lets you be anything you want to be, a place where you can live and play and fall in love on any of ten thousand planets. 

And like most of humanity, Wade dreams of being the one to discover the ultimate lottery ticket that lies concealed within this virtual world. For somewhere inside this giant networked playground, OASIS creator James Halliday has hidden a series of fiendish puzzles that will yield massive fortune — and remarkable power — to whoever can unlock them. 

For years, millions have struggled fruitlessly to attain this prize, knowing only that Halliday's riddles are based in the pop culture he loved — that of the late twentieth century. And for years, millions have found in this quest another means of escape, retreating into happy, obsessive study of Halliday&#…

Asylum by Madeleine Roux

Asylum by Madeleine Roux
Goodreads Blurb: Asylum is a thrilling and creepy photo-novel perfect for fans of the New York Times bestseller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

An outcast at his high school, Dan is excited to finally make some friends in his last summer before college. But when he arrives at the program, Dan learns that his dorm for the summer used to be a sanatorium, more commonly known as an asylum. And not just any asylum—a last resort for the criminally insane.

As Dan and his new friends, Abby and Jordan, explore the hidden recesses of their creepy summer home, they soon discover it's no coincidence that the three of them ended up here. Because the asylum holds the key to a terrifying past. And there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.

The Witch of Bourbon Street by Suzanne Palmieri

“When Frances Green Sorrow is born carrying the “signs” of the so-called chosen one, it is believed she will bring her family back from the brink of obscurity. But Frances is no savior”

My Thoughts:
I got this book on the $5 clearance rack from Barnes and Noble. It’s a book based in New Orleans and the Bayou in Louisiana. It circles around a family named the Sorrows and their magic past and fixing the present. It has a lot to do with magic and the belief in white/black magic. The book is not overbearing or overpowering with the magic component which is nice, but focuses on a variety of mysterious topics such as outer body experiences and seeing spirits. The story goes between the past and present in the form of letters and the “Book of Sorrows” to find out how to break the “Sorrow Curse”. It truly was an interesting book, story, and it has happy ending for the entire family.
I definitely will be passing this book onto my bestie and fellow blogger, Emily.

Fraternizing (Players game 1) by Rachel Van Dyken

Blurb: Emerson just made her dream come true as a professional cheerleader for her favorite pro football team. But even though the plus-size athlete is breaking down boundaries, she still has to contend with the massive rulebook. Carbs? Nope. Chocolate? Definitely not. Still, Emerson loves her curves, and she’ll rock the hell out of this job even if it kills her. Except for one mandate that is easier read than done…

No fraternizing with the players.

Problem one is Miller Quinton: Emerson’s first love, first sex, and the guy who still ignites her daydreams and R-rated fantasies. Thrown back together, Miller and Emerson feel the undeniable pull of passion again, even if the conflict that tore them apart seems insurmountable. Then there’s way-too-sexy Grant Sanchez. He has a serious reputation with the ladies, and when it comes to winning someone he wants, he doesn’t let anyone stand in his way.

Now Emerson is breaking every rule in the manual. But what she doesn’t know is that she’s part of…
