November is almost here. Fall is in full swing and families are preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving in a new way this year. November usually brings my reading taste more focused on Historical Fiction. I love a good historical fiction and tend to read stuff related to World War 2. I do prefer books that are well researched for the time and based on true events, it adds a level of realness to the stories in my mind. These are the books I am hoping to get to this month.
I am trying to patiently wait for my copy of the Invisible Life of Addie La Rue. I got a special edition and it is set to be shipping by the end of the October. I can not wait to get to this book! If you want a summary of what is about take a look at the New books of October post from earlier this month.
Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix
The story centers around 3 very different young women and how their lives intersect at the Triangle Waist Factory. It is more importantly about how their lives would be impacted on that day in March when the factory caught fire and destroyed the lives of my workers.
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
At the end of WW2 the lives of 3 children converge on the ship the Wilhelm Gustloff, which was their key to safety. Forced to unite when tragedy strikes they all need to fight for their survival.
Sepetys does an amazing job researching the events of her books so I am excited to try this book by her.
The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict
This books is focused around the life of Mitza Maric, brilliant physicist and the wife of Albert Einstein. She was at studying physics at an Elite Zurich university, focusing on math not marriage when she caught the eye of Albert Einstein. His interest would turn her world around and impact both of them. Their marriage becomes a partnership of the mind and of the heart, but there might not be room for more than one genius in a marriage. But did she contribute to the special theory of relativity is more than what was said? Was she simply Einstein's sounding board, an assistant performing complex mathematical equations? Or did she contribute something more?
The last book is our book Club pick for the month. For more information on this title take a look at our book club section on our event page.
Let us know what you are planning on reading in November!
October has been a crazy busy month in store! We have been getting a lot of books in and have been sorting them which has taken us away from our lovely blog friends! We have had a wild year to say the least, but we have almost made it to the end. That means that Christmas is right around the corner! Christmas shopping is going to be a little bit different this year between online shopping and between limits in stores and buildings it is going to take a little bit more time and patience than normal. Since supply lines and shipping companies are going to be working extra hard this year, a new campaign has started within the Indie Books community.
We are putting together a fun post with Christmas present ideas and bundles for your families for early November! We are also working on trying to figure out the best way that we can keep you safe and still be able to host our Annual Hardcover and Non-fiction sale. There are a lot of challenges that we are working on balancing to make sure that we are not putting you all at risk this year. We appreciate all your support during this time and we want to make sure you guys are taken care of too!
We are keeping this post short and sweet!
I cannot believe it is already October! 2020 is almost over and I am sure most of us are hoping 2021 has some major improvements! Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, mostly because October just happens to be my birthday month and there are some AMAZING book releases that are coming out this month so Happy Birthday to me! There are also some spooky reads on my TBR that should make for a perfect fall read but we already talked about those.
The first one that I am most excited about is: The Invisible Life of Addie La Rue by V.E. Schwab! I was even luck enough that I went and got a special edition box from OwlCrate that includes the book and items specifically curated for it by the author! This book comes out on October 6th and is about a girl who made a deal to live forever but she is cursed to be forgotten by all. Keep an eye out for a review of this ones because I have high hopes for it and can’t wait for it to reach them.
The second book that is coming out is a holiday one. It is a little early for me to read a holiday book, but this author is an insta-buy for me. I have almost every other book that this author duo and know they are great at what they do. The book is: In A Holidaze by Christina Lauren. It sounds like a cute holiday read with comedy, a time loop, and a chance to find what will make you happy. It releases on the same day as the earlier book so October 6th is looking like a good release day!
Those are my top two releases for October. There are lots of other books coming out in October but we do not want to overload you with those titles. We do have some Christmas themed books starting to come out by contemporary authors this month.
Here is a short list of what we think are going to be the most popular release for you guys!
Hopefully this brings you some new books to look forward too! We probably won’t have these titles right away in store but you can always check out our Bookshop page and support us on there if you just can’t wait to have these titles! Visit us at: https://bookshop.org/shop/randbusedbooks
