Hello all! Now that the month is November, this means that this is the third and last part of this years Autumn books that I’m Looking Forward to. I’ve liked doing these, so I’m going to try to do them monthly according to the seasons!
I don’t know about where you live, but where I live, November is typically the month where Autumn matures into Winter. In my mind I can see myself sitting on my bed with my window open reading a book while sipping some hot chocolate. Ahh, it looks so comfortable. But what books are being published in November that I’m interested in? Lets see!:
The main premises of The Diabolic is that the main character, Nemesis, a humanoid, was created to serve and protect with her own life, the life of another human. And that human is the daughter of a Galactic senator, Sidonia. When a power-mad Emperor finds out that the senator is planning to rebel, the Emperor summons Sidonia to the Galactic court and plans to use her as a hostage.
To make Sidonia as safe as possible, Nemesis becomes Sidonia and is sent in her place. Danger is in everywhere and Nemesis must keep her powers a secret or she risks everything.
“As the Empire begins to fracture and rebellion looms closer, Nemesis learns there is something more to her than just deadly force. She finds a humanity truer than what she encounters from most humans. Amidst all the danger, action, and intrigue, her humanity just might be the thing that saves her life—and the empire.”
I just found out about this book a little while ago, I’m very intrigued as to what happens in this book. I’m really loving the premise of the novel entirely, and the fact that The Diabolic takes place in space is ironic since I don’t normally like reading books that take place in space.
The Diabolic is a Young Adult Dystopia that features some Romance.
“From New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young comes a heartrending new novel about a girl struggling to deal with anger issues while taking care of her younger brother with special needs.”
What caught my eye about All in Pieces is that the main character, Savannah, has “Anger-management issues.” That drew me in and what sticks with me is how protective Savannah is of her little brother whom is disabled. Savannah has already stood up for her brother who was being teased for being disabled by her ex-boyfriend. Savannah got so mad that she stabbed a pencil in her ex-boyfriends hand. That stint landed her in an “alternative high school that’s used as a temporary detention center.”
I can already tell that All in Pieces is going to be a whirlwind of emotions coming from Savannah. She has so much to lose yet so much to gain. She doesn’t want her brother to go to her Aunt, who is trying to get custody of him. And she doesn’t really care for her dad, whose an alcoholic who doesn’t really give a damn. And then there’s her ex-boyfriend who is trying to seek revenge in some form, while Cameron is probably trying to find a way to be closer to Savannah. I already know that at some point Savannah is going to break down. It’ll be messy when she does so. — But if the breakdown doesn’t happen at all, I’m going to be mightily surprised.
All in Pieces is listed as a YA Contemporary novel on Goodreads.
Die For You tells a story about a “perfect love story.” Emma, the main character, is sent to live with her father after her parents’ divorce forces Emma to move halfway across the state of Arizona. Emma is going to face her senior school year knowing absolutely no one. But then she meets a boy and everything seems to fall into place for her.
I don’t know what to expect with Die for You. It seems like there’s only one way that the story could go. So I want to say that I have no idea where the story is going to go, but the storyline could change, and we the reader don’t know what has happened to cause Emma to give up her dream of becoming an archaeologist. And we don’t know what happened to Dillion to cause him to go over the deep end. I hope that this book doesn’t portray an unhealthy relationship between the two of them.
Dillion seems to be the end-all-save-all for Emma. She just happens to meet him one day at school, and he seems to have all the answers. Which really worries me because I’m getting the feeling that Dillion is a super happy dude, but that could be a ruse to hide how, and who he actually is. I’m not looking forward about how Emma meets Dillion and the something just happens to click into place.
Die for You is listed as a YA Realistic novel on Goodreads.
I was drawn to This Is Our Story because of the cover. The cover is so pretty! I then read what This Is Our Story is about and was almost immediately drawn into the story. For some reason, I’m reminded of Gansey from The Raven Boys whenever I read the books’ synopsis.
What I really like about this story already, is that the main character, Kate Marino, is determined to reveal the secrets of the story. Which to be honest, if the synopsis just left like that, I wouldn’t be interested in reading the book. However, the synopsis goes on to hint and say that Kate has secrets of her own that she can’t (or wont?) reveal. And that to me is too juicy to ignore. So I’m looking forward to the book and revealing all secrets!
This Is Our Story is a Young Adult Mystery Thriller.
What I love already about this book is that there are LGBTQIA characters. What makes it even better is the fact that there’s magic involved! Banned magic! Magic that could put the main character, Dennaleia, who is a Princess by the way(!), in danger.
I really love the cover and the fact that Of Fire and Stars is a stand alone is great. — Of Fire and Stars is a Fantasy LGBTQIA Romance.
OK, the synopsis seems really familiar in the sense that the end of the world is ending in this novel; which I am not excited for, but their world is ending, no matter what happens.
“The asteroid hurtling toward the earth will kill billions.
The Emperor and his Gold Court will be safe in their space station, watching from the stars. The Silvers will be protected underground. But the Bronzes must fight it out at the Shadow Trials for the few remaining spots left on the space station.
When an enigmatic benefactor hands Maia Graystone a spot in the Trials, she won’t just get a chance at salvation for her and her baby brother, Max: She gets to confront the mother who abandoned her in prison, the mad Emperor who murdered her father, and the Gold prince who once loved her. But it’s the dark bastard prince she’s partnered with that will make her question everything, including her own heart. With the asteroid racing closer every day, Maia must trust someone to survive.
The question is who?”
I can already tell that there’s going to be a lot going on in this novel. I don’t know how everything will play out; who to trust, who not to trust, but I hope that Shadow Fall will be a wild one.
Shadow Fall is a Young Adult Sci-Fi Dystopia.
Oohh, I’ve been looking forward to this book for awhile now! I wasn’t very much impressed with the last book, The Invasion of the Tearling, but I have high hopes for this one. I hope that the story turns around in this novel, and I hope that all of the characters are happy by the end of the book.
The Fate of the Tearling (book 3/3) is a Young Adult Fantasy.
