Books I'm Squeeing About in November

How has October finished already?! I can’t believe that we’re already into November and almost at this site’s one year bloganniversary! I will be doing a give away on the 28th November to celebrate, as well as other sekrit excitements to surprise you with throughout the month – but in the meantime here are three books you need in your life this month!

Since meeting vampire brothers, Stefan and Damon Salvatore, Elena Gilbert has been to hell and back. Now that she and her friends have saved their hometown from a demonic spirit, everything can finally go back to normal.
But Elena should know better than anyone that Fell's Church will never be normal. In PHANTOM, a dangerous new other-worldly threat sets its sights on Elena. And this time she can only count on one Salvatore brother to protect her.

I’m not sure what I’m going to make of ‘Phantom’. Anyone who has read L. J. Smith’s blog will have seen that the last Vampire Diaries book was the last one by her. This one has apparently been written by a ghost writer, so I don’t really know what to expect from it. But I’m curious, so I’ll give it a go.

Rules are different outside the Society.
Chasing down an uncertain future, Cassia makes her way to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky – taken by the Society to his certain death-only to find that he has escaped into the majestic, but treacherous, canyons. On this wild frontier are glimmers of a different life and the enthralling promise of rebellion. But even as Cassia sacrifices everything to reunite with Ky, ingenious surprises from Xander may change the game once again.
Narrated from both Cassia's and Ky's points of view, this hotly anticipated sequel to Matched will take them both to the edge of Society, where nothing is as expected and crosses and double crosses make their path more twisted than ever...

I’m so glad that the sequel to ‘Matched’ is out this month. It was the first book I ever reviewed on this site, and I loved it. It was one of my first deliberate forays into dystopian fantasy, and whilst I wasn’t fussed on the first half of the book, the second half swept me away. I’m looking forward to seeing how Cassia’s journey continues in her search for love, life, and a world without rules.

When Darcy McCall loses her beloved Aunt Molly, she doesn't expect any sort of inheritance - let alone a small island. Located off the west coast of Ireland, Tara hasn't been lived on for years, but according to Molly's will Darcy must stay there for twelve months in order to fully inherit, and she needs to persuade a village full of people to settle there, too. Darcy has to leave behind her independent city life and swap stylish heels for muddy wellies. Between sorting everything from the plumbing to the pub, Darcy meets confident Conor and ever-grumpy Dermot - but who will make her feel really at home?

Ah, what can I say other than BUY THIS BOOK NOW. Ali McNamara’s debut novel ‘From Notting Hill with Love… Actually’ was again, one of the first books I reviewed on here, and one of my all time favourite chick lits. It was awesome in its fresh approach and brilliant plot, and I will wave my copy in front of everyone who will listen and shriek about how awesome it is.
And now we have a NEW BOOK from Ali! And I cannot wait, literally so excited for it, because it is going to be epic. I feel it in my bones. Pre-order it now, go on, I dare you.
