November LibraryReads

Here is the list for books coming out in November that librarians countrywide think will be popular. I think there are several in here that will interest readers here in Georgia.

The top vote getter this time is Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield. I blogged about this one before back when I was covering the books that come out Nov 5th. I said "If you liked The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, her new one after 7 years will be published. Bellman and Black is a dark Gothic mystery as was her first work. William as a young boy, kills a bird while playing with friends. The act is quickly forgotten but when we meet him as a successful family man later in life, we find things about to change." The reviewer called it beautifully written ....that will have you entwined in its arms until the end."

The other 9 titles are below:

Through the Evil Days: A Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne Mystery - Julia Spencer-Fleming's series with the Reverend Clare and Police Chief Russ. Apparently, she introduces a dog into this mystery.

The Death of Santini: The Story of a Father and His Son by Pat Conroy. Conroy's look at his relationship with his father who had been the model for Conroy's novel - The Great Santini. Although their relationship had not always been close, this is said to be a lesson about how redemptive the powers of love and humor can be.

Someone Else's Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson. If you liked herGods in Alabama, you will need to read this funny and endearing Southern novel. A young single mother is rescued during a robbery and she decides she needs to find out about the mother of her brilliant 3 year old.

The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan. Any Tan novel is worth reading but one of the reviewers I really admire says this is a powerful story of love, family, courage and history.

Lies You Wanted to Hear by James Whitfield Thomson explores the course of a failed marriage.

The Cartographer of No Man's Land by P.S. Duffy.An artist takes up a naval career because of the expectations of his father. Suddenly he finds himself on the front lines in France during World War I.

The Raven's Eye: A Brock and Kolla Mystery by Barry Maitland. A really well written British police procedural for fans of Ruth Rendell and Deborah Crombie.

Death of a Nightingale by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis. This is by the same authors that penned The Boy in the Suitcase. This one is for mystery lovers who like to explore social justice and morality.

Parasite by Mira Grant. Grant just finished up a medical based dystopian series. Now she starts on another one. This one involves a genetically engineered tapeworm that protect most of the human populace from illness, boost every one's immune system, and even secrete designer drugs. Unfortunately, it begins to change and wants out of human bodies they occupy.

All titles will be available at the library when they are published and all are currently available for holds now. Enjoy.
