Only a few of the November Top Titles are new to the list. Among the stand-alone titles was Never, a political thriller by Ken Follett. Weighing in at 800 pages, Never is an “action-packed, globe-spanning drama.” A number of series also received new sequels: Diana Gabaldon released the eighth “Outlander” book, Go Tell the Bees That I am Gone; Janet Evanovich released the 28th “Stephanie Plum” book, Game On: Tempting Twenty-Eight; David Baldacci released a fouth “Atlee Pine” book Mercy; and Michael Connelly released the fourth “Renée Ballard and Harry Bosch Novel,” The Dark Hours.
Patrons were also checking out Frank Herber’s 1965 science fiction novel Dune, in the wake of the movie debuting on October 28. We predict that December will see interest in Emily St. John Mandel’s 2014 post-pandemic novel Station Eleven; an adaptation arrives on HBO Max on December 16. An adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s The Lost Daughter arrives in theaters on December 17.
