November New Books
It’s another new month, which means….more new books! Every month publishers release hundreds of new books. It’s hard to keep up with all the new books, so I’ve culled through them and here’s my picks for what’s coming out this month! For November, I’m doing an adult edition also, so check that one out too!
November has some great books coming out. There is a new Diary of a Wimpy Kid, a new Dork Diary, a backstory on the Queen of Hearts. Take a look and see what you’ll be reading this month!
November Children’s Chapter Books
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Diary of a Wimpy Kid #11: Double Down by Jeff Kinney due out 11/1
The pressure’s really piling up on Greg Heffley. His mom thinks video games are turning his brain to mush, so she wants her son to put down the controller and explore his “creative side.”
As if that’s not scary enough, Halloween’s just around the corner and the frights are coming at Greg from every angle.
When Greg discovers a bag of gummy worms, it sparks an idea. Can he get his mom off his back by making a movie . . . and will he become rich and famous in the process? Or will doubling down on this plan just double Greg’s troubles?
Ever After High
Ever After High: Epic Winter by Perdita Finn due out 11/1
When the rebellious Jackie Frost and her brother, Northwind, plot to take control of the Winter Palace and curse the Royal Winter Family, a treacherous storm threatens all of Ever After! Under Jackie’s chilly curse, the Snow King freezes out everyone in the palace, including his daughter: Crystal Winter. As a wicked winter spreads across the land, Crystal takes off on a daring quest with her friends from Ever After High to melt her father’s frozen heart and save the world from turning into a giant snow globe. With Jackie and other fairy dark forces working against them, will Crystal, Briar, Ashlynn, and the rest of the gang be able to heat things up before summer is gone forever after?
Nikki and her friends Brandon, Chloe, and Zoey are up for another adventure in the eleventh book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Dork Diaries series
A Devlin Quick Mystery
Someone has stolen a page from a rare book in the New York Public Library. At least, that’s what Devlin’s friend Liza thinks she’s seen, but she can’t be sure. Any other kid might not see a crime here, but Devlin Quick is courageous and confident, and she knows she has to bring this man to justice—even if it means breathlessly racing around the city to collect evidence. But who is this thief? And what could the page—an old map—possibly lead to? With her wits, persistence, and the help of New York City’s finest (and, okay, a little bit of help from her police commissioner mother, too), Dev and her friends piece the clues together to uncover a mystery that’s bigger than anyone expected—and more fun, too.
With all of the heart-pounding excitement that made her internationally bestselling Alexandra Cooper series a hit, Linda Fairstein paves the way for another unstoppable heroine . . . even if she is only twelve

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.
When the former Baron Morgarath escaped to avoid punishment for treason, an uneasy peace fell on Araluen. But Morgarath, now in hiding, is already planning his next move, recruiting an army of savage, overpowering beasts known as Wargals. Newly crowned King Duncan knows he must assemble his troops for battle.
To find out the full extent of Morgarath’s plan of attack, Halt prepares for a seemingly impossible task–climbing the deadly cliffs of the Mountains of Rain and Night and venturing deep into enemy territory to spy. After all, the winner of this war could be determined by one wrong move.
At the Battle of Hackham Heath, the fate of a Kingdom will be decided. This origin story of how Halt came to be Araluen’s most famous Ranger – and how war will decide the future of the next generation – will thrill Ranger’s Apprentice fans and new readers alike
