New Releases for November

It’s time for another post on some upcoming new releases. Some of these are already out and some will be coming out soon but here’s what is on my radar. Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for the review copies.

Carry the Dog by Stephanie Gangi. Bea Seger has spent a lifetime running from her childhood. The daughter of a famous photographer, she and her brothers were the subjects of an explosive series of images in the 1960s. Now it’s time to confront the past. I find the art world fascinating so I think this will be a good one.

New Year by Juli Zeh, translated by Alta L. Price. Lanzarote on New Year’s Day: Henning is cycling up the steep path to Femés. As he struggles against the wind and the gradient he takes stock of his life. He has a job, a wife, two children—yet hardly recognizes himself anymore. Might be a good selection for German Literature Month!

Final Spin by Jocko Willink. Stocking warehouse store shelves by day, drinking too much whiskey and beer by night. In between, Johnny lives in his childhood home, making sure his alcoholic mother hasn’t drunk herself to death, and looking after his idiosyncratic older brother Arty, whose world revolves around his laundromat job. Then Johnny’s monotonous life takes a tumble. Let’s see what shakes up this characters’ lives.

A Little Hope by Ethan Joella. In the small city of Wharton, Connecticut, lives are beginning to unravel. A husband betrays his wife. A son struggles with addiction. A widow misses her late spouse. At the heart of these interlinking stories is one couple: Freddie and Greg Tyler. A novel about community and life. Recommend for readers of Olive Kitteridge, which I loved, I’m exited about this one.

The Mirror Dance by Catriona McPherson. Something sinister is afoot in the streets of Dundee, when a puppeteer is found murdered behind his striped Punch and Judy stand, as children sit cross-legged drinking ginger beer. I read the first Dandy Gliver mystery back in 2005 and I sadly didn’t follow up with the series but I’m excited to return. And, yes, I think I’ve finally given up on reading a series in order.

Hello, Transcriber by Hannah Morrissey. A captivating mystery suspense debut featuring a female police transcriber who goes beyond the limits to solve a harrowing case. This sounds like a promising thriller.

What do you think? Is there a title that interests you the most? Have a wonderful weekend and more bookish talk soon.
