Spelling November in Books

Hello everybody! Today, I’m back with the penultimate installment in the spelling months with books series, for my birth month November. Onto the post!

N is for… the No Show– this was Beth O Leary’s 4th book, which I’ve apparently never reviewed even though I thought I had. I did enjoy it, but it’s definitely not the romcom it was billed as and don’t go into it expecting to be one is my best advice.

O is for… One for All– a brilliant, swashbuckling historical fantasy adventure with kickass heroines and outstanding disability rep. I cried within the first chapter because I felt so seen by it!

V is for… the Very Merry Murder Club- this is a brilliant little anthology of wintry murder mysteries; I had so much fun with it last Christmas and it’s a highly recommended festive read from me!

E is for… Everything I Know About Love– this was a very recent read, one of the only non fiction things I’ve read this year and I really enjoyed it. It’s basically just about Dolly Alderton’s life and her thoughts on love; I didn’t agree with all of it by any means but it was a hugely engaging and enjoyable read.

M is for… the Midnighters– this is one of my favourite things I’ve read this year; a gothic, supernatural murder mystery that reminded me a little bit of the Mentalist. Which is, if you know me, a huge compliment coming from me.

B is for… Boy Queen – this kind of slipped under the radar given it came out in 2020, which is a massive shame because it’s brilliant. It’s about a boy called Robin becoming a drag queen, and it’s so funny and clever and joyful. Perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Simon James Green!

E is for… Etta, Invincible– this is another brilliant one with disability rep; the character’s condition is actually pretty similar to mine which was fab. It’s a really fun superhero-inspired fantasy story as well and it was just a great time.

R is for… the Revelry– this is Katie Webber’s 3rd YA book, and it was well worth the 2 and a bit year wait. It’s absolutely thrilling and has so much to say about female friendship.

Thank you so much for reading!! Which books would you have chosen? Do you have any thoughts on the ones I’ve mentioned? Let’s chat in the comments!
