Judging Books By Their Covers: November 2019 Releases Edition

The old saying goes “Don’t judge a book by the cover” but that’s what we are here to do. 

Once again, I am not as active on the blog as I want to be. Sadly, life gets priority and while I love the blog and the community, nowadays I get only a couple of free hours a day, and I spend them mostly catching up on reading. So thank you for sticking with the blog even when I am not as active as I usually am. But I love seeing your comments, they make my day, always. If you ever miss me, you can find me on my social media accounts listed below.

Every month, I pick some books with pretty covers and then I show the ones with best blurbs to you.
Basically, I spend a lot of time on Netgalley, and scouring the Internet for new releases, so I am gonna do that, but pick the books based on their cover. Then I’ll read the blurbs and pick my favorites and then I share them with all of you!

So the basic formula of this post is pretty books meets new releases I am excited about

So many pretty books this month, but I have heard of a lot of them before and they already on my TBR, so you get only four picks this month. However, they are all super pretty! Let’s get into it!

1. Humiliation by Paulina Flores

The Care and Feeding of Ravenously Hungry Girls

Release Date: November 5th

Why I love the cover: This is such a cool cover. It sort of looks like skin, right? And the typography and the way it curls is so striking and so cool. Ah, I love it.

Why I love the blurb: This is a translated short story collection, of stories that are set in Chile. As with any collection, stories revolve around many different things, but the collection as a whole explores pride, shame, and disgrace – on both a personal and public level, and I think that sounds absolutely amazing and like something I would love.

2. The Book of Lost Saints by Daniel Jose Older

The City in the Middle of the Night

Release Date: November 5th

Why I love the cover: I really love the color scheme of this cover. it’s just so nice and the title pops with the yellow and it just looks spectacular.

Why I love the blurb: This is exactly my kind of book – it’s a multigenerational Cuban-American family story. I believe we follow two perspectives, Marisol, who disappeared during the Cuban revolution and her nephew, Ramon, in modern-day New Jersey. I love this kind of stories and I have heard nothing but great things about Older, so I am excited.

3. Unnatural Magic by C.M. Waggoner

The Lost Night

Release Date: November 5th

Why I love the cover: I feel like this style of cover has been super popular lately, but I don’t mind at all, because I love it. This cover is so intricate and absolutely stunning. I also love the colors and how they look together. I love when a cover makes me excited for a book and this one did that for sure.

Why I love the blurb: This was blurbed by Kat Howard so naturally I already want it. It’s about a girl, Onna, who is one of the best magic practitioners in her village, but she gets denied a place at the arcane university because she is a woman. So she sets out to Hexos, another city-state to study magic, but gets caught up into solving the murder of four trolls. The other perspective we follow is of Tsira, a troll who goes to the city to find work, and ends up finding a wounded human soldier and nurses him back to health. Both Tsira and Onna get involved into the murders and have to save their homeland from being torn apart. This sounds so brilliant and fun and I really want to read it now.

4. Wake, Siren: Ovid Resung by Nina Maclaughlin

Immoral Code

Release Date: November 19th

Why I love the cover: I don’t even have to say anything – y’all can see how cool this is.

Why I love the blurb: This is the PERFECT book for me. It’s a retelling of Ovid’s Metamorphoses where women’s stories are retold and reclaimed. I love stuff like that and this book promises to “what is lost when the stories of women are told and translated by men”. I love myths, I love retellings and we love feminism, so this is going to be perfect.

addAnd those are this month’s pretty new releases. Let me know your favorite one and as always, let me know about pretty books you found recently!
