…Or should I say, today’s release, since there is only one. We rarely select novels in the Young Adult category for our overall top ten list, but Nicola Yoon’s The Sun Is Also a Star is an exception. This National Book Award-nominated novel is a smartly-written romance that will appeal to an adult audience as well (even adults with cynical hearts).
While Ms. Yoon can certainly hold her own, there a more Best of the Month selections you can get your hands on today. The fall season is a busy one in the publishing world, so there were some late-October releases that we bumped to November for Best of the Month consideration. These are the titles that made the cut.
