Hello Fellow Readers,
I hope you are well and keeping safe. We are getting ready to start a second lockdown here in England. It is a weird period for me. I am still trying to adjust to the working from home/personal life balance and I am definitely reading less. After staring at the screen the whole day, I found it quite hard reading at night. Moreover, my cat decided to wake me around 6 AM every morning for the past week when my alarm is supposed to be at 7.30 AM. I started feeling a tad exhausted…. sigh.
Anyway, there are two books coming out this week, but both of them are big releases:
Chronic overachiever Prudence Daniels is always quick to cast judgment on the lazy, rude, and arrogant residents of her coastal town. Her dreams of karmic justice are fulfilled when, after a night out with her friends, she wakes up with the sudden ability to cast instant karma on those around her.
Pru giddily makes use of the power, punishing everyone from public vandals to karaoke hecklers, but there is one person on whom her powers consistently backfire: Quint Erickson, her slacker of a lab partner and all-around mortal enemy. Soon, Pru begins to uncover truths about Quint, her peers, and even herself that reveal how thin the line is between virtue and vanity, generosity and greed . . . love and hate.
I loooooove Marissa Meyer. Heartless was amazing and it’s the only book that still haunts me, so if you haven’t, I strongly recommend this retelling of the story of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Instant Karma is a contemporary romance, but still with a bit of fantasy. The main character, Pru, is a girl suddenly gifted with the ability to cast instant karma on those around her— both good and bad. It is out on 3 November.
Kappa Rho Nu isn’t your average sorority. Their parties are notorious. Their fundraisers are known for being Westerly College’s most elaborate affairs. But beneath the veil of Greek life and prestige, the sisters of Kappu Rho Nu share a secret: they’re a coven of witches. For Vivi Deveraux, being one of Kappa Rho Nu’s Ravens means getting a chance to redefine herself.
For Scarlett Winters, a bonafide Raven and daughter of a legacy Raven, pledge this year means living up to her mother’s impossible expectations of becoming Kappa Rho Nu’s next president. Scarlett knows she’d be the perfect candidate — that is, if she didn’t have one human-sized skeleton in her closet…. When Vivi and Scarlett are paired as big and little for initiation, they find themselves sinking into the sinister world of blood oaths and betrayals.
Written by New York Times bestselling authors Kass Morgan and Danielle Paige a thrilling, dark contemporary fantasy about a prestigious sorority of witches and two girls caught up in its world of sinister magic and betrayals. It is officially out on 3 November but I know it has been postponed in other countries.
What is your most awaited book of November? Will you read one of these two??
