Highly Awaited Books of November 2020

1. The Princess Knight by G.A. Aiken

The Princess Knight by G.A. Aiken

Gemma Smythe dedicated her life to the glory of battle. With her fellow War Monks, she worshipped the war gods, rained destruction on her enemies, and raised the dead when the fancy took her. Until her sister Keeley became the prophesied Blacksmith Queen, and Gemma broke faith with her order to journey to the Amichai Mountain and fight by Keeley’s side. 

The Amichai warriors are an unruly, never-to-be-tamed lot, especially their leader-in-waiting, Quinn. But when the War Monks declare support for Gemma’s ruthless younger sister Beatrix, the immaturity of her key ally is the least of Gemma’s problems. She has to get to the grand masters, dispel their grudge against her, and persuade them to fight for Keeley and justice. If her conviction can’t sway them, perhaps Quinn’s irritating, irreverent, clearly unhinged, ferocity will win the day . . .

2. The Cul-de-Sac War by Melissa Ferguson

The Cul-de-Sac War by Melissa Ferguson

Bree Leake doesn’t want to be tied down. She’s had more jobs than she can count, and she plans to move as soon as the curtains fall on her less-than-minor stage role at The Barter–the oldest live performance theater in the US.

But just when it’s time to move on again, Bree’s parents make her an offer: hold steady for a full year, and they will give her the one thing she’s always wanted–her grandmother’s house.

Her dreams are coming true . . . until life at the theater throws her some curve balls.

And then there’s Chip McBride–her handsome and infuriating next-door neighbor.

Chip just might be the only person whose stubborn streak can match Bree’s. She would move heaven and earth to have him off her cul-de-sac and out of her life, but according to the bargain she’s struck, she can’t move out of her house and away from the man who’s making her life miserable.

So begins Bree’s obsessive new mission: to drive Chip out of the neighborhood–and fast.

Bree isn’t the only one who’s a tad competitive, and Chip is more than willing to fight fire with fire. But as their pranks escalate, the line between love and hate starts to blur–and their heated rivalry threatens to take a hilarious, heartwarming, and romantic new turn.

3. The Awakening (The Dragon Heart Legacy #1) by Nora Roberts

The Awakening by Nora RobertsWhen Breen Kelly was a girl, her father would tell her stories of magical places. Now she’s an anxious twenty something mired in student debt and working a job she hates. 

But one day she stumbles upon a shocking discovery: her mother has been hiding an investment account in her name. It has been funded by her long-lost father–and it’s worth nearly four million dollars. 
This newfound fortune would be life-changing for anyone. 
But little does Breen know that when she uses some of the money to journey to Ireland, it will unlock mysteries she couldn’t have imagined. 
Here, she will begin to understand why she kept seeing that silver-haired, elusive man, why she imagined his voice in her head saying Come home, Breen Siobhan. It’s time you came home. Why she dreamed of dragons. 
And where her true destiny lies–through a portal in Galway that takes her to a land of faeries and mermaids, to a man named Keegan, and to the courage in her own heart that will guide her through a powerful, dangerous destiny…

4. Love and Olives by Jenna Evans Welch

Love and Olives by Jenna Evans WelchLiv Varanakis doesn’t have a lot of fond memories of her father, which makes sense–he fled to Greece when she was only eight. What Liv does remember, though, is their shared love for Greek myths and the lost city of Atlantis. 

So when Liv suddenly receives a postcard from her father explaining that National Geographic is funding a documentary about his theories on Atlantis– will she fly out to Greece and help?–Liv jumps at the opportunity. 

But when she arrives to gorgeous Santorini, things are a little…awkward. There are so many questions, so many emotions that flood to the surface after seeing her father for the first time in years. And yet Liv doesn’t want their past to get in the way of a possible reconciliation. She also definitely doesn’t want Theo–her father’s charismatic so-called “protégé”–to witness her struggle .And that means diving into all that Santorini has to offer–the beautiful sunsets, the turquoise water, the hidden caves, and the delicious cuisine. 

But not everything on the Greek island is as perfect as it seems. Because as Liv slowly begins to discover, her father may not have invited her to Greece for Atlantis, but for something much more important.

5. The Office of Historical Corrections: A Novella and Short Stories by Danielle Evans

The Office of Historical Corrections by Danielle EvansDanielle Evans is widely acclaimed for her blisteringly smart voice and x-ray insights into complex human relationships. 

With The Office of Historical Corrections, Evans zooms in on particular moments and relationships in her characters’ lives in a way that allows them to speak to larger issues of race, culture, and history. 

She introduces us to Black and multiracial characters who are experiencing the universal confusions of lust and love, and getting walloped by grief–all while exploring how history haunts us, personally and collectively. 

Ultimately, she provokes us to think about the truths of American history–about who gets to tell them, and the cost of setting the record straight.

In “Boys Go to Jupiter,” a white college student tries to reinvent herself after a photo of her in a Confederate-flag bikini goes viral. In “Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain,” a photojournalist is forced to confront her own losses while attending an old friend’s unexpectedly dramatic wedding. 

And in the eye-opening title novella, a black scholar from Washington, DC, is drawn into a complex historical mystery that spans generations and puts her job, her love life, and her oldest friendship at risk.

6. A Promised Land by Barack Obama

A Promised Land by Barack ObamaIn the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency–a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office.

Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. 

Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond.

7. Notorious (Rebels of the Ton #1)

Notorious by Minerva SpencerThe cure for a willful wife . . .Drusilla Clare is full of opinions about why a woman shouldn’t marry. 

But that doesn’t stop the rush of desire she feels each time her best friend’s brother, notorious rake Gabriel Marlington, crosses her path. So imagine her dismay when she finds herself in the clutches of a scoundrel, only to be rescued by Gabriel himself. 

And when Gabriel’s heartless–and heart-pounding–proposal comes, it’s enough to make Dru’s formidable resolve crumble.  She’s sharp-tongued, exasperating–and due to one careless moment–about to become his wife. 

Still, something about Drusilla has Gabriel intrigued. First there’s the delicious flush of her skin every time she delivers a barb–and then the surprisingly sensual feel of her in his arms. Gabriel even finds himself challenged by her unusual philosophies. 

When he discovers a clandestine rival for Dru’s affection, his temperature flares even hotter. But the real threat to their happiness is one neither of the newlyweds sees coming. 

If they’re to save their future–and their very lives–they’ll need to trust in each other and their growing love.

8. Instant Karma by Marissa Meyer

Instant Karma by Marissa MeyerChronic overachiever Prudence Daniels is always quick to cast judgment on the lazy, rude, and arrogant residents of her coastal town. 

Her dreams of karmic justice are fulfilled when, after a night out with her friends, she wakes up with the sudden ability to cast instant karma on those around her. 

Pru giddily makes use of the power, punishing everyone from public vandals to mean gossips, but there is one person on whom her powers consistently backfire: Quint Erickson, her slacker of a lab partner. Quint is annoyingly cute and impressively noble, especially when it comes to his work with the rescue center for local sea animals. 

When Pru resigns herself to working at the rescue center for extra credit, she begins to uncover truths about baby otters, environmental upheaval, and romantic crossed signals–not necessarily in that order. Her newfound karmic insights reveal how thin the line is between virtue and vanity, generosity and greed . . . love and hate… and fate.

9. Hidden in Plain Sight (William Warwick Novels #2) by Jeffrey Archer

Hidden in Plain Sight by Jeffrey ArcherWilliam Warwick has been promoted to Detective Sergeant, but his promotion means that he, along with the rest of his team, have been reassigned to the Drugs Squad.

They are immediately tasked with apprehending Khalil Rashidi, a notorious drug dealer, who operates his extensive network out of South London.
As the investigation progresses, William runs into enemies old and new: Adrian Heath, from his school days, now a street dealer who he convinces to turn informer; and financier Miles Faulkner, who makes a mistake that could finally see him put behind bars.
Meanwhile, William and his fiancée Beth enjoy making preparations for their upcoming wedding, though an unpleasant surprise awaits them at the altar.
As William’s team closes the net around a criminal network like none they have ever faced before, he devises a trap they would never expect, one that is hidden in plain sight . . .

 

10. Frozen 2 Dangerous Secrets: The Story of Iduna and Agnarr by Mari Mancusi

Frozen 2 Dangerous Secrets: The Story of Iduna and Agnarr by Mari MancusiEver since the day the forest fell, Arendellians have despised and distrusted Northuldra with a vengeance. No matter that the Northuldra-along with some of Arendelle’s own-have been trapped in the Enchanted Forest behind an impenetrable wall of mist since the day of the battle.

Iduna doesn’t know why the mist refuses to part, or why it descended to begin with. The only clear thing is that she must keep her identity from everyone, even Agnarr. Her life depends on it.

Fortunately for her, Agnarr doesn’t know that Iduna is the Northuldra girl he saw seemingly flying on a gust of wind all those years ago, the day of the celebration turned disaster. The day Agnarr lost his father, the king. The day Agnarr himself almost died.

What Agnarr does know is that Iduna is a true ally in the face of his royal responsibilities and the expectations of an overbearing council and a well-meaning regent who will rule in Agnarr’s place until he turns twenty-one and assumes the Arendellian throne.

As Iduna and Agnarr grow ever closer, however, friendship is no longer enough. If only falling for each other didn’t mean risking their futures: Iduna’s as a hidden-in-plain-sight citizen of Arendelle, and Agnarr’s as imminent king.

But for a chance at true love, the risk might be worth taking

11. The Law of Innocence by Michael Connelly

The Law of Innocence by Michael ConnellyOn the night he celebrates a big win, defense attorney Mickey Haller is pulled over by police, who find the body of a former client in the trunk of his Lincoln. 

Haller is immediately charged with murder but can’t post the exorbitant $5 million bail slapped on him by a vindictive judge.

Mickey elects to represent himself and is forced to mount his defense from his jail cell in the Twin Towers Correctional Center in downtown Los Angeles. 

All the while he needs to look over his shoulder–as an officer of the court he is an instant target, and he makes few friends when he reveals a corruption plot within the jail.

But the bigger plot is the one against him. Haller knows he’s been framed, whether by a new enemy or an old one. 

As his trusted team, including his half-brother, Harry Bosch, investigates, Haller must use all his skills in the courtroom to counter the damning evidence against him.

Even if he can obtain a not-guilty verdict, Mickey understands that it won’t be enough. In order to be truly exonerated, he must find out who really committed the murder and why. 

12. Murder in Old Bombay by Nev March

Murder in Old Bombay by Nev MarchIn 1892, Bombay is the center of British India. Nearby, Captain Jim Agnihotri lies in Poona military hospital recovering from a skirmish on the wild northern frontier, with little to do but re-read the tales of his idol, Sherlock Holmes, and browse the daily papers. 

The case that catches Captain Jim’s attention is being called the crime of the century: Two women fell from the busy university’s clock tower in broad daylight. 

Moved by Adi, the widower of one of the victims — his certainty that his wife and sister did not commit suicide — Captain Jim approaches the Parsee family and is hired to investigate what happened that terrible afternoon. But in a land of divided loyalties, asking questions is dangerous. 

Captain Jim’s investigation disturbs the shadows that seem to follow the Framji family and triggers an ominous chain of events. 

And when lively Lady Diana Framji joins the hunt for her sisters’ attackers, Captain Jim’s heart isn’t safe, either.

Based on a true story, and set against the vibrant backdrop of colonial India, Murder in Old Bombay, brings this tumultuous historical age to life.

13. Little Threats by Emily Schultz

Little Threats by Emily SchultzIn the summer of 1993, twin sisters Kennedy and Carter Wynn are embracing the grunge era and testing every limit in their privileged Richmond suburb. But Kennedy’s teenage rebellion goes too far when, after a night of partying in the woods, her best friend, Haley, is murdered, and suspicion quickly falls upon Kennedy.

She can’t remember anything about the night in question, and this, along with the damning testimony from a college boy who both Kennedy and Haley loved, is enough to force Kennedy to enter a guilty plea.
In 2008, Kennedy is released into a world that has moved on without her. Carter has grown distant as she questions Kennedy’s innocence, and begins a relationship with someone who could drive the sisters apart forever.
The twins’ father, Gerry, is eager to protect the family’s secrets and fragile bonds. But Kennedy’s return brings the tragedy back to the surface, along with a whole new wave of media. When a crime show host comes to town asking questions, believing the murder wasn’t as simple as it seemed, murky memories of Haley’s death come to light.
As new suspects emerge and the suburban woods finally give up their secrets, two families may be destroyed again.

14. Nucleation by Kimberly Ungay

Nucleation by Kimberly UngerHelen Vectorvich just botched first contact. And she did it in both virtual reality and outer space. Only the most elite Far Reaches deep-space pilots get to run waldos: robots controlled from thousands of light years away via neural integration and quantum entanglement. Helen and her navigator were heading the construction of a wormhole gate that would connect Earth to the stars . . . until a routine system check turned deadly.

As nasty rumors swarm around her, and overeager junior pilots jockey to take her place, Helen makes a startling discovery: microscopic alien life is devouring their corporate equipment. Is the Scale just mindless, extra-terrestrial bacteria? Or is it working–and killing–with a purpose?

While Helen struggles to get back into the pilot’s chair, and to communicate with the Scale, someone–or something–is trying to sabotage the Far Reaches project once and for all. They’ll have to get through Helen first.

15. Rent A Boyfriend by Gloria Chao

Rent A Boyfriend by Gloria ChaoChloe Wang is nervous to introduce her parents to her boyfriend, because the truth is, she hasn’t met him yet either. 

She hired him from Rent for Your ‘Rents, a company specializing in providing fake boyfriends trained to impress even the most traditional Asian parents.

Drew Chan’s passion is art, but after his parents cut him off for dropping out of college to pursue his dreams, he became a Rent for Your ‘Rents employee to keep a roof over his head. 

Luckily, learning protocols like “Type C parents prefer quiet, kind, zero-PDA gestures” comes naturally to him.

When Chloe rents Drew, the mission is simple: convince her parents fake Drew is worthy of their approval so they’ll stop pressuring her to accept a proposal from Hongbo, the wealthiest (and slimiest) young bachelor in their tight-knit Asian American community.

But when Chloe starts to fall for the real Drew–who, unlike his fake persona, is definitely not ‘rent-worthy–her carefully curated life begins to unravel. 

Can she figure out what she wants before she loses everything?

16. Divided Fire by Jennifer San Filippo

Divided Fire by Jennifer San FilippoMiren has never allowed jealousy of her sister’s magic keep her from taking care of Kesia, and Kesia has always depended on her big sister.

When Kesia is kidnapped, Miren will do anything to get her back–even team up with her sister’s aristocratic and seemingly ineffectual boyfriend.

Neither sister had ever left their small fishing village before, and now they are plunged into the wider world, minor players in a war between nations.

Each sister faces external and internal perils, and each finds surprising allies and unexpected strengths.

How will the two find each other again?

And what will become of them if they don’t succeed?

“The better you are at communicating, negotiating, and handling your fear of rejection, the easier life is.”

“People are so afraid of losing that they lose”

1.Management of cash flow

2.Management of systems

3.Management of people”

“Be a little greedy. It’s the best cure for laziness.”

“What I know makes me money. What I don’t know loses me money. Every time I have been arrogant, I have lost money. Because when I’m arrogant, I truly believe that what I don’t know is not important,”

“There is gold everywhere. Most people are not trained to see it.”

“Money is made on information. You want to hear about the next boom, get in, and get out before the next bust.”

There are 2 types of people. People who are too busy to take care of their wealth, and people too busy to take care of their health.

Rich Dad Poor Dad Book Quotes Part 2

Read Part 1 here.

“By not fully understanding money, the vast majority of people allow its awesome power to control them.”

“If you find you have dug yourself into a hole… stop digging.”

“Schools were designed to produce good employees, instead of employers.”

“When it comes to money, high emotions tend to lower financial intelligence.”

“Most never become what the investment world calls ‘a sophisticated investor.’ And the best investments are usually first sold to sophisticated investors, who then turn around and sell them to the people playing it safe.”

“The real tragedy is that the lack of early financial education is what creates the risk faced by average middle-class people. The reason they have to play it safe is because their financial positions are tenuous at best. Their balance sheets are not balanced. Instead, they are loaded with liabilities and have no real assets that generate income. Typically, their only source of income is their paycheck. Their livelihood becomes entirely dependent on their employer. So when genuine “deals of a lifetime” come along, these people can’t take advantage of them because they are working so hard, are taxed to the max, and are loaded with debt.”

“Employees make their business owner or the shareholders rich, not themselves. Your efforts and success will help provide for the owner’s success and retirement.”

“Most people work from January to May just for the government.”

“Wealth measures how much money your money is making and, therefore, your financial survivability.”

“Have the excess cash flow from your assets reinvested. The more money that goes into my asset column, the more my asset column grows. The more my assets grow, the more my cash flow grows.”

“Keep expenses low, reduce liabilities, and diligently build a base of solid assets.”

“Begin acquiring assets that you love. If you don’t love it, you won’t take care of it.”

“Start minding your own business. Keep your daytime job, but start buying real assets, not liabilities.”

“The better I was at understanding the accounting and cash management, the better I would be at analyzing investments and eventually starting and building my own company.”

“Once a dollar goes into your asset column, it becomes your employee. The best thing about money is that it works 24 hours a day and can work for generations.”

“Build your asset column first. Then the income generated from the asset column will buy you luxuries.”

“A small amount can grow into a large amount. It is a matter of understanding financial statements, investment strategies, a sense of the market, and the laws.”

“The greater your financial intelligence, the easier it is to tell whether a deal is good. It’s your intelligence that can spot a bad deal, or make a bad deal good.”

“It is not gambling if you know what you’re doing. It is gambling if you’re just throwing money into a deal and praying. The idea in anything is to use your technical knowledge, wisdom, and love of the game to cut the odds down, to lower the risk.”

“I look at money much like my game of tennis. I play hard, make mistakes, correct, make more mistakes, correct, and get better. If I lose the game, I reach across the net, shake my opponent’s hand, smile, and say, ‘See you next Saturday.”

“Financial intelligence is a synergy of accounting, investing, marketing, and law. Combine those four technical skills and making money with money is easier than most people would believe.”

“You want to know a little about a lot” was rich dad’s suggestion.”

“I recommend to young people to seek work for what they will learn, more than what they will earn. Look down the road at what skills they want to acquire before choosing a specific profession and before getting trapped in the Rat Race.”

“The question I often ask people is, ‘Where is this daily activity taking you?’”

“If they tell me, “I only do what I am interested in,” I say, “I’m not interested in going to the gym, but I go because I want to feel better and live longer.”
