Most Anticipated November 2020 YA Releases

 

I’m honestly kind of glad that November is a bit of a slower month for book releases.  September and October were crazy.  As always, this isn’t everything coming out.  I just tried to pick ones I’m excited for or ones I think others are looking forward to.

Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco

From the #1 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Stalking Jack the Ripper series comes a new blockbuster series…

Two sisters.

One brutal murder.

A quest for vengeance that will unleash Hell itself…

And an intoxicating romance.

Emilia and her twin sister Vittoria are streghe – witches who live secretly among humans, avoiding notice and persecution. One night, Vittoria misses dinner service at the family’s renowned Sicilian restaurant. Emilia soon finds the body of her beloved twin…desecrated beyond belief.

Most Anticipated October 2020 YA

 

How is it almost October already?  This year has dragged a lot, but now I feel like it’s speeding up.  I think I’m just ready for 2020 to be over.

 

Below are some of the October releases for YA (mostly).   I can’t add them all, but I try to pick books that I think will be popular and also the ones I can’t wait for.

Review of Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson (earc)

Grown by Tiffany D. Jackson

Korey Fields is dead.

When Enchanted Jones wakes with blood on her hands and zero memory of the previous night, no one—the police and Korey’s fans included—has more questions than she does. All she really knows is that this isn’t how things are supposed to be. Korey was Enchanted’s ticket to stardom.

Before there was a dead body, Enchanted was an aspiring singer, struggling with her tight knit family’s recent move to the suburbs while trying to find her place as the lone Black girl in high school. But then legendary R&B artist Korey Fields spots her at an audition. And suddenly her dream of being a professional singer takes flight.

Enchanted is dazzled by Korey’s luxurious life but soon her dream turns into a nightmare. Behind Korey’s charm and star power hides a dark side, one that wants to control her every move, with rage and consequences. Except now he’s dead and the police are at the door. Who killed Korey Fields?

All signs point to Enchanted.

Hardcover, 384 pages
