November 2023’s biggest books


Oct 31, 2023

November is the best month for book lovers. Think about it: Most of fall’s biggest books are now available, the weather is dark and chilly, and there’s a long holiday weekend with great food and time off to veg out and read. Make the most of this time and listen to an audiobook during the turkey trot 5k or while you whip up mashed potatoes, or give your wallet a break from Black Friday deals with a free ebook from the library.

With only 2 months left in 2023 (?!), you might be racing to complete your yearly reading goals or thinking ahead about what to add to your TBR list for next year. Whatever your situation, your library’s got you covered. So get ready to melt into the coziest season of reading with these popular new releases on the Libby app.

You might’ve missed

From author Lydia Davis comes Our Strangers, a collection of stories delving into topics ranging from marriage to tiny insects. Dubbed “the reigning queen of flash fiction,” this collection of life’s low-key moments cements Davis’ mastery of the form and is a must for your bedside table.

Looking back

Want to see what was trending last November? There may be a title or two you missed, like the late Matthew Perry’s memoir (Friends, Lovers and the Big, Terrible Thing), The Cloisters (a Today Show #ReadwithJenna Book Club Pick) or Hunting Time (the inspiration for an upcoming CBS original series, Tracker).
