Last month I said that I only had one ARC (Advanced Reader's Copy) to read, and that hasn't changed even though I did receive another. Fact is, I read the second one almost as fast as I pulled it out of the mailbox.
It's really been fun reading what I want to read when I want to read it. I've had several requests, but none of them intrigued me enough to want to read them so I'm sticking to my own books-- of which I've got plenty!
I even "rotate the stock" now. (Can you tell I used to be in retail?) As I'm putting new acquisitions on the shelves, if the shelf is too full I pull the oldest book(s) off, put the new one on, and the oldest one then goes on my RF (Read First) pile. Some of those books have been on my TBR ( To Be Read) shelves for about two years, so it's more than time that I either read them or send them on to someone else who will.
Even though I'm having fun reading books from my own shelves, you know that I'm paying attention to new releases. No self-respecting bookaholic would totally ignore new books!
The following books are my top picks for new mysteries being released in November. The titles are grouped by release dates, and I've included the information you'll need to find them at all your favorite book spots. Let's see which titles have me drooling this month....
