November Releases I Am Excited About

Christmas is around the corner, so beautiful Christmas book are coming our way! November is certainly full of festive titles and you can find a few in my top releases for this month. But I am also looking forward to reading some other stories too, have a look:

The Canal Boat Café Christmas: Port Out by Cressida Maclaughin - November 1st

A Christmas special continuing the charming and heart-warming story of The Canal Boat Café, the runaway bestseller.

Summer and Mason take their upbeat and feelgood Canal Boat Café to London for Christmas, with unexpected results.

Port Out – Summer is so in love with her boyfriend Mason and dreams of taking the next step with him, but is Mason ready too? When her friend Claire offers Summer a chance to come to London with her canal boat, Summer thinks this will give them a chance to find out, and they embark on a magical journey on the canal all the way to the scenic beauty of Little Venice. But will it be plain sailing all the way?

Why so excited: I really enjoyed The Canal Boat Café last year, so I cannot wait to catch up with these characters and see what they are up to. Plus, I love canal boats, so books set in them are always a treat.

Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse - November 2nd

The last person who called me ‘Sweetpea’ ended up dead…

I haven’t killed anyone for three years and I thought that when it happened again I’d feel bad. Like an alcholic taking a sip of whisky. But no. Nothing. I had a blissful night’s sleep. Didn’t wake up at all. And for once, no bad dream either. This morning I feel balanced. Almost sane, for once.

Rhiannon is your average girl next door, settled with her boyfriend and little dog…but she’s got a killer secret.

Although her childhood was haunted by a famous crime, Rhinannon’s life is normal now that her celebrity has dwindled. By day her job as an editorial assistant is demeaning and unsatisfying. By evening she dutifully listens to her friend’s plans for marriage and babies whilst secretly making a list.

A kill list.

From the man on the Lidl checkout who always mishandles her apples, to the driver who cuts her off on her way to work, to the people who have got it coming, Rhiannon’s ready to get her revenge.

Because the girl everyone overlooks might be able to get away with murder…

Why so excited: I discovered S.J. Skuse last year with The Deviants and I was fascinated with her clever writing and dark setting, and this one sounds just as good.

Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell - November 2nd

Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell is a beautiful gift edition containing two wintery short stories, decorated throughout for the first time with gorgeous black and white illustrations by Simini Blocker.

Midnights is the story of Noel and Mags, who meet at the same New Year's Eve party every year and fall a little more in love each time...

Kindred Spirits is about Elena, who decides to queue to see the new Star Wars movie and meets Gabe, a fellow fan.

Midnights was previously published as part of the My True Love Gave to Me anthology, edited by Stephanie Perkins and Kindred Spirits was previously published as a World Book Day title.

Why so excited: two reasons: first, decorated with illustrations and second, glittery cover. This would certainly make a gorgeous Christmas present... for myself :)

A Christmas Wedding by Paige Toon - November 16th

The short story eBook sequel to Thirteen Weddings, from bestselling author Paige Toon. 

Four years ago, following that fated thirteenth wedding, Bronte fled the UK and has been happily burying her head in the sand ever since. But when an email lands in her inbox from Alex, it seems her past might be about to catch up with her right here in Sydney. Is it time for Bronte to finally face her demons?

With links to The Last Piece of My Heart, Lucy in the Sky and One Perfect Summer, this short story ebook sequel to Thirteen Weddings is a must for all fans of Paige Toon.

Get ready for Christmas with a heartwarming short story from Paige Toon, perfect for fans of Giovanna Fletcher and Adele Parks.

Why so excited: I love Paige Toon's books, so a story with links to several of her books is the best news I could get. I especially want to find out how Bronte is doing, as the ending of Thirteen Weddings has always had me a bit in two minds.
