Amazon's Best Books of November: Today's Releases

Erin Kodicek on November 13, 2017

BotmWe are still on a Best of the Year high but the Best of the Month train keeps rolling, and there are some great releases we'd like to point out to you, including our Debut Spotlight for November, S.A. Chakraborty's The City of Brass. Senior Editor Adrian Liang says, "George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones meets Naomi Novik’s Uprooted in this marvelous fantasy about a young con artist from 18th century Cairo who learns that her mysterious parentage—and her ability to work small magics—might be connected to the nearly forgotten legends of the djinn, Suleiman the Magnificent, and the mysterious brass city of Daevabad." The good news is, it's the first in a trilogy, and the "heck of a finale was both a surprise and felt completely right…and left [Adrian] quivering with anticipation for the second book."

Luckily for us, she kept a diary, one that reveals the inside scoop on some of the biggest stories to come out of the 1980s, from Princess Diana’s failing marriage to a controversial Annie Leibovitz cover of a naked, and very pregnant, Demi Moore.
