  • Throne of Glass collector’s editions
    Release date: November 6th

I’m one of those crazies who ordered both editions; US and UK. I just couldn’t choose between the two because both looked so stunning and also different from one another. I just HAD to have both of them. I cannot waaaait for them to arrive!

  • Skyward by Brandon Sanderson 
    Release date: November 6th

I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity of pre-ordering this one. I haven’t read a lot of Sanderson yet, but what I’ve read, I really loved. I’m so excited to see how this YA book turns out because the synopsis sounds really awesome!

Defeated, crushed, and driven almost to extinction, the remnants of the human race are trapped on a planet that is constantly attacked by mysterious alien starfighters. Spensa, a teenage girl living among them, longs to be a pilot. When she discovers the wreckage of an ancient ship, she realizes this dream might be possible—assuming she can repair the ship, navigate flight school, and (perhaps most importantly) persuade the strange machine to help her. Because this ship, uniquely, appears to have a soul.

  • Angel and Bavar by Amy Wilson
    Release date: November 6th

I don’t often read middle-grace but the synopsis of this book looks so good that I just had to include the book in this list. This book is definitely high upon my wishlist as of now! I can’t wait to read it. 

Taking inspiration from “Beauty and the Beast,” Amy Wilson’s second middle-grade novel is a stunning modern fairy tale of magic, friendship, and finding the courage to fight for what matters most.

After the death of her parents, Angel has a lot to get used to: a new home, a new family, a new school. The last thing she’s interested in is making new friends. Until she meets Bavar, a strange boy who slips through the shadows, a boy who might understand her nightmares.

But Bavar doesn’t want to let anyone in. Everyone—and everything—in his enchanted house is already urging him to step up and protect the world from a magical rift and the fearsome monsters traveling through it, a responsibility he wishes he could ignore.

Then Bavar discovers that the monsters are the same ones that killed Angel’s parents. Determined to stop the creatures for good, he reluctantly accepts Angel’s help. Together, Angel and Bavar must find the courage to stand up for each other and themselves to repair the rift between worlds…before it’s too late.

  • This splintered Silence by Kayla Olson 
    Release date: November 13th

I see young adult being mentioned, I see science-fiction being mentioned and that makes me want to add the book to the wishlist asap haha. I love YA sci-fi books. This looks to be a thrilling, creepy sci-fi book filled with space adventure and I can’t wait to add it to my shelves!

Lindley Hamilton has been the leader of the space station Lusca since every first-generation crew member on board, including her mother, the commander, were killed by a deadly virus.

Lindley always assumed she’d captain the Lusca one day, but she never thought that day would come so soon. And she never thought it would be like this—struggling to survive every day, learning how to keep the Lusca running, figuring out how to communicate with Earth, making sure they don’t run out of food.

When a member of the surviving second generation dies from symptoms that look just like the deadly virus, though, Lindley feels her world shrinking even smaller. The disease was supposed to be over; the second generation was supposed to be immune. But as more people die, Lindley must face the terrifying reality that either the virus has mutated or something worse is happening: one of their own is a killer.

  • Navigating the Stars by Maria V. Snyder (Sentinels of the Galaxy #1)
    Release date: November 19th

Aaaand another YA sci-fi book, yas! I haven’t read anything by this author yet but I’ve had some of her books on my wishlist for years now so one day I’ll get to them haha. But I think that I’m going to focus on this new release by her first because I really like the synopsis of this one. And well… it’s scifi so yeah; I’m a goner, lol.

Terra Cotta Warriors have been discovered on other planets in the Milky Way Galaxy. And Lyra Daniels’ parents are the archaeological Experts (yes with a capital E) on the Warriors and have dragged her to the various planets to study them despite the time dilation causing havoc with her social life.

When one of the many Warrior planets goes silent, and looters attack her research base, Lyra becomes involved in discovering why the Warriors were placed on these planets. And, more importantly, by who.

  • Outrun the Wind by Elizabeth Tammi
    Release date: November 20th 

I received an arc of this book some months ago but I haven’t been able to start reading it yet, unfortunately. I am really excited though to see what this book is all about because I really like the synopsis and the promise it holds on this book being a fantastic read. A female huntress? I’m intrigued! 

The Huntresses of Artemis must obey two rules: never disobey the goddess, and never fall in love. After being rescued from a harrowing life as an Oracle of Delphi, Kahina is glad to be a part of the Hunt; living among a group of female warriors gives her a chance to reclaim her strength, even while her prophetic powers linger. But when a routine mission goes awry, Kahina breaks the first rule in order to save the legendary huntress Atalanta.

To earn back Artemis’s favor, Kahina must complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia— where the king’s daughter is revealed to be none other than Atalanta. Still reeling from her disastrous quest and her father’s insistence on marriage, Atalanta isn’t sure what to make of Kahina. As her connection to Atalanta deepens, Kahina finds herself in danger of breaking Artemis’ second rule.

She helps Atalanta devise a dangerous game to avoid marriage, and word spreads throughout Greece, attracting suitors willing to tempt fate to go up against Atalanta in a race for her hand. But when the men responsible for both the girls’ dark pasts arrive, the game turns deadly.

  • the Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle 50th anniversary edition
    Release date: November 29th

The Last Unicorn has been on my wishlist for so long now. When I came across this pre-order of the 50th anniversary I decided to not wait any longer and just buy it already, lol. I’m really excited to receive this 50th-anniversary edition and to hopefully read this book very soon! 

She was magical, beautiful beyond belief — and completely alone…

The unicorn had lived since before memory in a forest where death could touch nothing. Maidens who caught a glimpse of her glory were blessed by enchantment they would never forget. But outside her wondrous realm, dark whispers and rumors carried a message she could not ignore: “Unicorns are gone from the world.”

Aided by a bumbling magician and an indomitable spinster, she set out to learn the truth. but she feared even her immortal wisdom meant nothing in a world where a mad king’s curse and terror incarnate lived only to stalk the last unicorn to her doom…
