About the Book: This is the final book in the Cursebreakers series, following all four of our previous POV characters as they head towards that inevitable conclusion that we’ve been dreading.

My Top 10 Book Releases of November 2020

Almost all of these types of posts include me rambling about how shocked I am that it’s already [insert month here] and wow time really does fly by. But this month I’m trying to break the habit.

…. okay but seriously how is it November?!

Sorry, sorry. I had to. Time has lost all meaning this year and I’m constantly confused how it still moves forward while it feels like we’re all trapped in this endless purgatory caused by the pandemic.

On that note- its time to talk book releases! November has some great books coming out and I want to talk about my top 10!!

Just a reminder, if you want to see my most anticipated releases for every month, I have a spreadsheet where I document them! Click here to view it

This spreadsheet covers 2016-2021, and I’m constantly updating it! (But be warned- the older back you go the less extensive the sheet is because I was just getting into the book community then and didn’t know where to find information on new releases)

Premise:

A Curse So Dark and Lonely follows Prince Rhen, and Harper. Prince Rhen was cursed, forced to live through the same fall again and again, with each season ending in him turning into a monster focused solely on destruction. The monster has destroyed everything, but, he could escape this curse if only a girl falls for him. Harper lives in Washington, D.C., with her brother and dying mother, that is, until she gets dragged into a fantasy world by a stranger. She isn’t going to be charmed by the prince, but when she sees how the people of his kingdom are faring, she decides to use her time in the enchanted land to help.

““Rhen,” she calls after me.
I pause in the doorway and face her.
“I’m not going to fall in love with you,” she says.
Her words are not a surprise. I sigh.
“You won’t be the first.””

Belle and Cinderella cosplays posing in front of the BookCon sign

After sleeping for a solid 2 days, I think I’m finally able to talk about all of the amazing things that happened at BookExpo and BookCon this past year!!!

As I mentioned in my last BookExpo/BookCon post, this year was my third or fourth BookCon, and my second BookExpo. While I have some experience with the events, they really do change every year, and I think this year was one of my favorites.

Note: I’ll be posting my haul very soon!!! This just would have been a little too long if I added it here.
